“But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.”

Dear Saints and Faithful Brethren,
Season’s Greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I trust that you all had a great Thanksgiving.
As of right now, the prisons in North and South Carolina are still not letting people in. However, the Lord has continued to keep a door open for me to be able to still go into prison to minister to the men inside. I am so thankful for the Lord keeping this door open during these crazy times.
I ask that you please pray for the men and women who are incarcerated right now. Thanksgiving and Christmas are always tough for them, especially this year, with there being no visits or special Christmas services that we normally have. During this time emotions run high and spirits low.
This time is not only hard for the inmates but also for their families. I have dealt with a couple of men recently whose children have attempted suicide and have written heartbreaking letters to them expressing the hurt they feel from their father being gone.
In the midst of all of this, I am glad the Lord allows me to go in and encourage these men and remind them that God is still on the throne and is greater that any problem they may face. That they can still have the joy of the Lord in the middle of their trials. That through Christ we can triumph over any difficulty.
May we all remember, as we celebrate the birth of our Saviour, that just as He came before, He will come again soon, in the clouds, to call His church home. Even so, come Lord Jesus!
From our family to yours, we want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you for all the Christmas cards and Christmas gifts you have sent by way of extra support. We feel blessed to have folks like you praying for us and supporting us.
As always, I want to thank you for your faithfulness in giving and for your prayers. May God continue to richly bless you in all you do for Him. I hope to see you all soon, here, there or in the air.
“Remembering them that are in bonds, as bound with them;” (Heb. 13:3)
