I am back at the jail full time now after having been out for 7 weeks getting a new knee put in. I love to tell people its nearly as good as the original one but nothing compares to what God gave you. I am walking without knee pain for the first time in nearly 5 years. I have struggled for many years with right knee pain and having had several ACL and meniscus repairs in the past was bone on bone and needed a replacement. At 51 years of age the Doctors do not like to do replacements that young but I was in dire straights.
The Doctors at Vail Valley did an amazing job and I am walking without assistance for the first time in nearly a year. Its wonderful to put down the walker and the cane. It reminds me of what it was like when I first gave my life fully to Christ. I could walk in the newness of life just like I was re born, it was and is an amazing feeling to know Christ has taken on all my sins and I am free to live a life for Him now without the weight of sin over my head.
The men and women that are in the jail have this same opportunity to come to know the saving grace of Christ. We ensure that anyone who wants a bible gets one and we also offer bible studies and classes throughout the day. Inmates are amazed that we actually care for them and often times hear for the first time the word that shakes them to the core, LOVE. We do tell them we love them but more importantly we tell them God loves them and Christ died for them. Changes happen every day.
Our 2019 banquet is fast approaching and we are beginning to gather together speakers and musical entertainment for you to enjoy. We want to make sure that we keep you informed and know that your welcome to come and spend an evening hearing about the work we are doing both inside and outside the jail. The date if Friday Feb. 22nd at Clifton Christian Church.
Well I am back to work and need to get out to the pods to visit with the men and women. Have a blessed day!
