                VICTORY BEHIND BARS


First, It is almost Christmas, so we want to say Merry Christmas to you all, and while at it we hope you all have a blessed New Year. Of course, as you and I know, the only way Christmas can be merry and the new year be blessed is to have the Lord Jesus Christ in it.

The ministry continues to be blessed by my Lord. As you know when we started the work at the Dallas County Juvenile Center in Selma, AL we were going in at 7PM. We did for a few years, and then I approached them about coming in earlier. They had me coming in at 1PM, and that was much better for us and the youth. We did that time for several months. Then a few weeks ago, the administrator called me and wanted to know if I could come in at 9AM that Friday. I asked if it was just for that Friday. She said. No, from now on. Well, that was great with me! So now I leave here at 8AM, and go in at 9.
At Mt Meigs, we finally got cleared to go back in. Recently we did Christmas bags for them. They all came to the service. Some came that hadnt come before. I told them about the greatest gift there is, the gift of salvation. And how the gift of God is eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ. When I asked who wanted that gift, hands went up all over the room. How many got saved, God knows. Thank you for praying. 

Finally, thank you again for your support and prayers. Please continue to pray for my wife. She is home now but continues therapy three times a week for the femur break that she had. Its long road to recovery, but she is, by the grace of God, making progress. And I thank God she is home with me.
