BEHIND THE BARS TESTIMONY


   My name is David and I thought I was a "saved" Christian while I was on the outside. I was doing drugs and living on the street under a bridge. I would pray to the Lord selfishly, asking for help to get things done my way.

   Since I have been in jail this time, I've really come to know the Lord. I know that I'm saved this time. On the outside my faith was dead because there was no fruit being produced. I was only speaking faith, but not living faith. I wasn't reading the Word daily or having fellowship with other Christians.

   I know now that Jesus Christ must be the most important thing in my life. He must become my life. I have completely broken down now and have given my all to Him. I thank God for the Jail Ministry and the volunteers for helping me to know Jesus personally.


   Praise God!  All honor and glory go to Him forever!

GOD'S AMAZING GRACE

                  A LETTER FROM OUR CHAPLAIN


To My Beloved Saints, 

   It is a good thing that the Lord is our shepherd. All of us need Him to go with us through the valleys in our lives. Sometimes the fear seems overwhelming when we receive an unexpected diagnosis or a bill that we can't pay. Many of us suffer with unrelenting pain from day to day. No matter what your situation maybe, our Lord whispers "fear not, I am with you to bring you to an expected end that I have purposed for you."

   When we fall into despair, His rod gently nudges us back into His loving grace. Even when we stumble and fall, He takes His staff and lifts us up into His arms with loving kindness and tender mercy. My dear saints, give thanks for the valley experiences; for they are used of God to bring us into a closer fellowship with our Shepard. He has assured us that we will always come out of the valley. We are just walking through it.



                                                                                 Grace and Peace,

                                                                                  Chaplain Joyner
