VICTORY FOR TROUBLED YOUTH
Greetings once again in the matchless name of our Lord Jesus Christ, the coming King of KINGS and Lord of LORDS, my God and Saviour, and I hope yours. We are still working on several jails and juvenile centers around here, but the Lord has opened some places, and we thank you for praying.
Some of you were praying for Warden Brown at the Dallas County Jail in Selma, AL. Well, this past Wednesday evening I was allowed in. Ten men came to the service, and 4 professed they got saved that night. Please continue to pray. We have the service every Wednesday night. I don’t how many men are incarcerated there, but I know that every one of them needs the Lord Jesus Christ.
Please continue to pray for the Dallas County Juvenile Detention Center. That one is in Selma, AL, and we have that one on Friday nights. So far we have seen nearly 50 professions of faith in our Lord Jesus. It’s an old facility, but has many youth in it. And, they house both boys and girls.
On Sunday mornings, we go to the Montgomery County Juvenile Detention Center. Our church used to have that one 3 months on, then 3 months off. At the last rotation, the director asked us if we wanted it every Sunday morning. Many youth there have come to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.
Please continue to pray for these places, and also for some we are working on. Pray for Olivia Pearson warden of the Pike County Jail in Troy, AL. She wants to meet us before we begin ministering there, and I’m having trouble connecting with her. Pray also for the Elmore County Jail in Wetumpka, AL. I talked to the Jail Administrator today, and he was encouraging about allowing us to have services there soon.
This I know, if we don’t go and tell them about Jesus Christ and his finished work for salvation, they won’t know.
