“Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation without regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.”2 Corinthians 7:10

Sunday, 3rd: “Dear reader, my name is Anthony S…   I am 43. Please put me on y’all’s prayer list. I come from a good family, I just got started using drugs early in life. I have lost both parents, while in prison, and I have watched both kids grow up as they came to visit me. I got out in 2019 and did really good for a year and a half. Then I relapsed. I have never been offered any real help for my problems. Please pray that I can get drug court sanction and find a Christian mentor, someone like Mr. Evans” (He got Mr. Evans’ testimony with his studies.) Praise God – “For he who was a slave when he was called by the Lord is the Lord’s freedman.” (1 Cor. 7:22a)! Pray Anthony befriends an inmate believer, studies all his lessons and memorizes the key Bible verses.

Pray Kyla, Kylen & Kysen study together, talk about their lessons and follow Christ Jesus.

Wednesday, 6th: “The most important thing I learned about this lesson is a better understanding of being a Christian. It has brought me closer to God. I hope through prayer to achieve all He has for me. God bless you! With love, Matthew S…” (He is a 55-year-old inmate studying course #7, GOD’S GREAT SALVATION.)

Saturday, 9th: Inmate Rony C… wrote: “[Gracias] Thanks for the course, it’s really good. It helped me a lot in my walk with Christ. I ask for your help with stamps and envelopes because I don’t have any in here. I ask prayer that my case, on 06-04-2022, be reduced. Pray for my children and parents. Pray for Pedro, his case hasn’t been resolved in 3 years. And pray for Vinicio and Timothy.” (Rony is a 34-year-old newborn in Christ.) Praise God – “And do not neglect to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” (Hebrews 13:16)!
