Prisoner Experiences "Revelation"

The first thing I read when I entered the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) for my visit to Alexandria, MD to present Revelation were these words from thier founder William Booth:

"While women weep as they do now, I'll fight. While little children go hungry as they do now I'll fight.

 While men go to prison in and out I'll fight.

 While there yet remains one dark soul without the light of God I'll fight. I'll fight to the very end."

Many of the men who experienced my presentation of Revelation chapters 12-22 in the packed chapel service that Sunday morning were fresh out of prison. They gave a standing ovation to the Word of God...before I could even finish. Afterwards I shook nearly everyone's hand. But one man in particular really touched me. As he held my hands with tears of joy in his eyes, he told me that he was just "30 days out". He had spent the last 26 years of his life in prison, and had barely been out a month. He was weeping because he was so very grateful to be able to hear the hope that is in Jesus and the promise of His return. I had mentioned my desire to visit more and more prisons to share Revelation, and he pleaded with me to do it as much as I could. "They need that in there" he said. "They really need that". 

This is a picture of my table in the lobby. We got 6 more children sponsored through Food For The Hungry! More than 30 this month alone. That means a few more mothers won't weep. A few more little children will not go hungry. And perhaps some of those kids will not grow up only to go into prison. But most of all it means that there will be fewer dark souls remaining without the light of God.

Please consider how we can "fight" together, either by sending me to a prison to present God's Word (click on the donation link), or sponsoring a child through Food For The Hungy (click on the sponsor a child link), or inviting me into you church or ministry to share God's Word.

May the Lord continue to bless you as you hold out "the free gift of the water of life"
