Monday, 15th: New student inmate Jennifer P… shared: “02/02/2021 Yes, I have received the Lord Jesus as my Savior. I used to blame God for every trouble or problem in my life. But one day someone gave me a Bible with a study section. It was the first time I had read the Bible and I realized I had a really bad image of who God and Jesus Christ were and that everything that happened in my life was a consequence of my own decisions. That’s when I decided that I needed to give myself to God, follow His path, learn to forgive others and myself. I want to learn and understand more.”

            Praise God – “For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” (Gal. 6:8)! Pray Jennifer studies diligently and shares boldly.

Thursday, 18th: On February 8th, Mark M… returned his study worksheets and shared: “If I don’t forgive people, God won’t forgive me. Without God’s help, we will live in defeat and bitterness. I may need help from God to forgive people. I’m open to learning about Christianity through the mail.”

            Praise God – “Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.” (Col. 3:13)! Pray Mark sees the magnitude of God’s forgiveness & acts.
