Tuesday, 30th: “I am a recovering meth addict. I have a 3-year sentence and I’ve already served 2 ½. Due to Covid-19, there’s no church or programs going on, so it’s all dead time.

Please put me in your prayers. Trevor O…

Saturday, 4th: WHAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU HAVE LEARNED? HAVE YOU RECEIVED THE LORD JESUS AS YOUR SAVIOR? and WHEN?  New student Liz M… (age 63) wrote: “To admit I have done wrong / sinned is the only way to true healing and a life leading to God. Yes and No. Yes, over twenty years ago, but no because I wanted to be accepted by Christians living in God’s truth. I haven’t really let the true changes take place until today, June 19, 2020, at the age of 63. Boy have I been lost. But now my eyes have been opened.” (She first requested lessons July 30, 2018, but we never heard back from her until June 3, 2020, when she requested studies a second time, via e-mail.)

            Praise God – “Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said: ‘Streams of living water will flow from within him.’” (John 7:38)! Pray Liz keeps doing the studies, shares her faith & encourages others to study too.
