April 21-27

Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29b

Sunday, 21st: “On 3-10-19, I prayed for God to forgive me and accepted Jesus as my Savior. As my time draws closer for me to get out, I look back at the last 14 years I’ve wasted inside these prison walls. Yet now I know I waste not, because I live for God’s word. For years I had a very hard and hateful heart, but no longer and it feels so great! For many years I was a high-ranking member of the Aryan Brotherhood, but I stepped away from it. I know God has a bigger and better plan for me. I do want to tell as many people as possible how God changed my heart, life and ways. Respectively, Terry P…” (In March 2019, Terry’s mom phoned B.S.B.M. and requested studies be mailed to him.)

          Praise God – “For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that One died for all, therefore all died.” (2 Cor. 5:14)! Pray Terry studies God’s word intently and passionately begins to share his faith in jail.

Monday, 22nd: “Friends in Christ, Can you all put me in your prayers? That they consider my hardship and grant me a transfer, so I am closer to my family and loved ones. Thank you all, Daniel G…” (He has been studying Bible courses with B.S.B.M. for 1 ½ years.)

          Praise God – “Remember those in prison as if you were bound with them, and those who are mistreated as if you were suffering with them.”(Heb. 13:3)! Pray Daniel patiently waits on the Lord, drawing near to Him daily.

Tuesday, 23rd: WHAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU HAVE LEARNED? HAVE YOU RECEIVED THE LORD JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR? and WHEN?  New student Sara Z… (age 62) wrote: “That the only way to Heaven is by Jesus. Yes. 4-1-2019” (Her first 2 Bible lessons were mailed on March 29, 2019.)

          Praise God – “For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.”(Romans 5:6)! Pray Sara keeps doing the lessons mailed to her. Pray she finds a Bible-teaching church to attend.

Wednesday, 24th: Penned, 4-11-19, in jail: “I am a person seeking to grow in the love of God. I don’t understand English. By God’s grace, my companion gave me your address to receive Bible studies. I have very little resources, if you can help with stamps. Your brother in Cristo, Juan M…”

          Praise God – “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace to me was not in vain.”(1 Cor. 15:10a)! Pray Juan gets his first mailing of Spanish lessons without any imposed mail restrictions by the jail.

Thursday, 25th: Sarah W… a hopeful new student sign-up, using B.S.B.M.’s website, wrote: “I would like to learn more so I can share His word with others.”

          Praise God – “Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest.”(Matt. 9:38)! Pray Sarah diligently and prayerfully studies God’s word, keeping in mind her goal to share the gospel.

Friday, 26th: WHAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU HAVE LEARNED? HAVE YOU RECEIVED THE LORD JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR? and WHEN?  New student Kimberly C… (age 52) wrote: “That God sent his only begotten son Jesus to die on the cross so that whosoever believes in him will have everlasting life. Yes. April 9, 2019” (Her 3rd mailing, of the first 2 Bible lessons, was resent on April 3, 2019. PTL!!!)

          Praise God – “He was delivered over to death for our trespasses and was raised to life for our justification.” (Romans 4:25)! Pray Kimberly does not hesitate to do what God has prompted her to do.

Saturday, 27th: Using B.S.B.M.’s website, awhile back, Walter N…, Chris & Cassey M…, Wayne & Eunice H…, Lacey L…, Manuel A… and Ray H… all requested Bible studies by mail. Also, awhile back, B.S.B.M. mailed each one their first lessons. We heard back from a few of them, but we didn’t for most, because they didn’t do their lessons and return the question pages to B.S.B.M. for processing. Well, last week they all requested to restart Bible studies again, using B.S.B.M.’s website. Praise God – “I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, that He considered me faithful and appointed me to service.”(1 Tim. 1:12)! Pray B.S.B.M. serves hopeful students compassionately and wisely.
