So here we are nearly half way through the 2019 year and we have made some significant changes in the Jail Ministry. Some I can share now other will be revealed in due time. I wanted to let everyone know that we so greatly appreciate your prayers, donations and financial support of this ministry. Without this help we would not be able to reach the people who are so desperately in need of change.
We have begun the work with Community Corrections (Comm Cor.), although we are starting slow to ensure that we are doing things right and within the guidelines given to us from Comm Cor. I know as of this writing that we are working with two men and planning on gaining a few more in the coming months. Some may wonder what we do with these men, well we are providing pro-social activities and Christian Mentor ship. Making sure these men know they are loved and cared for, by taking them out of the facility to rediscover the community and what it has to offer them besides drugs, alcohol and darkness. The volunteers in this program are bringing light directly into the darkness. This is a program that I pray will continue to grow and develop over the coming months and years.
As far as me personally, It has been one year as of May 23rd that I have been given the blessing of a new right knee. Prior to the knee surgery I was in tremendous pain nearly constantly. I have been blessed beyond measure and can say that the new knee has brightened my spirit as well as taken my pain levels down to a manageable rate. Dr. Cafferkey and his team at Vail Orthopedics did an amazing job with the surgery and also the rehab at St. Mary’s rehab facility. I have been truly blessed.
I am looking forward to the coming year and what God has in store for this ministry. I am just now seeing the full vision of what God wants us to do to grow this ministry outside the jail so when men and women leave both the jail and prison they will have a safe, drug and alcohol free place to re- begin their lives. I will share more on this soon as we look at how we can accomplish something this big.
The community around us is changing. I can feel the Holy Spirit working in many other christian organizations in the valley to gather us all together to accomplish so much more for Christ. I know a revival is just on the tip of exploding. There are so many good things taking place in the community right now that allow me to see the coming storm of Revival. God is so amazing.
Stay tuned for more to come very soon. This is short but I wanted to let people know that changes are coming and to get prepared for miracles, signs and wonders very soon.
