Sunday, 11th: Inmate Jarrod S… wrote B.S.B.M., in January 2021, requesting Bible studies. On July 6th, we received his first study worksheets. After being asked these three personal questions at the end of his lessons, WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED? HAVE YOU RECEIVED JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR? and WHEN? Jarrod wrote: “Jesus is the only way to God. I am saved because of Jesus and not from my behavior. Yes. June 28, 2021. Please pray for me and my family. I’m 22 and facing 66 years in prison. I’ve noticed a lot of problems happening in my family.” Praise God – “God made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.” (2 Cor 5:21)! Pray Jarrod studies and shares the gospel.

He has signed up four other inmates also.
