“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.”

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. As Valentine’s Day has just passed, a day when people express their love for one another, I cannot help but think of John 3:16 (“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”). A verse that reminds us how God expressed His love towards us. As unworthy as we are, I am glad He still loves us.
Since our last prayer letter much has transpired. The prison where I volunteer as a chaplain had a big COVID outbreak with 95% of the population getting it. As of right now, everyone has gotten over it with no deaths or serious side effects. However, because of this my time inside of the prison has been limited. Please pray that the doors would be opened back up for me to be able to go back in to minister to these men.
Also, pray for a new opportunity that our ministry has been given at a prison in North Carolina where we are able to preach from the prison parking lot in a car and broadcast it through a radio transmitter so that the men inside the prison are able to tune into a clear radio signal and listen. Brother Joe Hendricks has spear-headed this project and it is working well. We are praying and working on more opportunities like this at other prisons. Please pray that the Lord would give us favor and direction in this endeavor.
Other refreshing news, I was reading over some of our prayer letters from last year and was reminded that it was about this time last year, before everything shut down that we had a revival and a young man named Robert had gotten saved. I am glad to report to you that the young man is still serving the Lord faithfully inside the prison. Robert has been a blessing to me as well as to others as he has grown in the Lord. Please continue to lift him up in prayer.
Please pray for Joe and Becky Hendricks. They were in a car wreck (no fault of their own) back in January. They were not seriously hurt but their van was totaled.
Also, pray for me as I have had some health issues (non-COVID related) here lately; mostly joint issues from past injuries.
As always, I want to thank you for your continued faithfulness in giving and for your prayers. May God continue to richly bless you in all you do for Him. If there is ever a time when you would like for us to come by your church to give an update on the ministry or preach, please let us know; our contact information is on the left side of our prayer letter. You can also visit our website, which is listed at the bottom of this letter.
