“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.”

I pray this letter finds you all doing well. It’s hard to believe that this year is almost gone. Since our last prayer letter, a few more opportunities have opened for me. A few weeks ago, I was able to start holding Bible study classes during the week inside the prison. I am currently teaching a class on How to Study the Bible at two different yards. I believe it is important that Christians know how to study their Bibles. So, along with the church services, I am able to preach and teach four times a week now inside the prison. Unfortunately, it looks like it is going to be after the first of the year before other missionaries and volunteers will be allowed inside the prisons. I was hoping that it would not take that long, but the officials over the prisons in South and North Carolina have decided to wait a little longer.
Although volunteers and missionaries have not been allowed to come into the prisons and the volunteer church services have seemingly been placed in a holding pattern, sin and Satan have not let up and are still wreaking havoc in the lives of the men inside the prisons. I have had personal conversations with several men over the past couple of months and, through God’s Word, been able to encourage them and give them hope. Truth be known, God’s Word is the only place any of us can find any hope in this lost and dying world. I am so thankful that even though the evening news may not be too good, we can look inside God’s Word and find good news. I believe Jesus is coming back soon. Keep your heads up friends for your redemption draweth nigh!
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.
