Please remember that at this time Good Friday, Jesus obeyed our Father and willingly gave His life so we could be reconciled to the Father and have eternal life with Him. He rose again and went to prepare a place for us. If we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and repent we will be saved and go to be with Him. Let us rejoice in this.
Ministry update; We are booked to go back to Jamaica October 21 – November 4 at which time God willing Charles and Sharon the founders of The Overcomers Recovery Support Program will join us to meet the leaders in Jamaica and present the Certificates of Completion to those who have completed the program at that time. http://recoverysupport.org/ Pray for their health that they will be able to join us, I have given them the dates they have already said the timing is right.
On the home front we have started a new Overcomers group at Beaver Creek Medium Security Federal Institution as of April 7, 2014. We have a group of 15 which includes the Chaplain and a social worker. After seeing the introduction they wanted to do the program as well. One kind person has donated the books and curriculum so this could start. Thank you S.P. we couldn’t have started without you providing for the books.
We are there on Mondays 1-3pm. We have the teaching, discussion and refreshments. They are excited about the program. Pray for the men as they proceed with the program. This is a new ministry and we are stepping out in faith once again, it brings extra expenses but we know God opened this door and He will provide for it. Our need is gas for the van, and purchasing note books and cookies roughly $160. – $ 200.00 per month. If anyone would like to help with this ministry we thank you, every little bit helps. You could support by helping with the gas by sending a cheque or click the link below. Or if you want to help with cookies they have to be packaged cookies from the store. They can’t be home made or store made. You can contact us a the number below or by responding to this e-mail. The Lord says to visit those in prison. These men are coming out a some point and you want them coming out better than when they went in and the Overcomers program can help them do that if they apply what they learn. Even if one life is changed it is worth it. You may not be able to go yourselves but you will be blessed if you help us or others to do this.
We are also bring the Challenge Good News Paper http://www.challengenews.org/USA into the prison it contains stories of people who have been radically changed by Jesus Christ. If you would like to contribute to this it would also be appreciated. The cost for the papers and mailing is $110.55 US funds per month for 11 months. We have received the papers and taken them in to the prison where they are an encouragement, we have not paid for them as yet but are trusting God. They will accept any donation so we can continue bring them in monthly. If you want to help with this specifically send the donation to us with a memo for Challenge paper and we will forward it for the papers and send you a charity receipt. Brent Bishop brought some of these with him on our last mission trip and they were taken into the prisons where they were well received so we ventured out to get some to take into the prison here. See picture below. If you would like a copy please let us know.
