"I had seen other inmates with the Scripture-text Datebook and rebelled [against] it as religious psycho-babble propaganda. I was made to go to church as a youth, by parents who were non-attenders themselves. I had become disheartened with church and spent all of these years (42), feeling I could handle everything life threw at me. In January of this year, I was given a Datebook by my cellmate. Instead of rejecting it, and him interpreting it as my rejecting his kindness, I put on a show of reading it. I eventually used it to write down daily plans and deeds. I then started reading the daily Scriptures, and His light opened my eyes. My heart felt a great burden lifted as I opened it and my brain to His righteousness. I cannot do this time or my life alone. I need Him!" ~Geoffrey F.
“It's me again, coming to you live from Lorain County Correctional Institute. Well, anywho [sic], I have been moved. I was not able to bring my Bible studies and booklets with me seeing as there was but one set that I left for the county jail. Can you please send me two sets of the literature this time around, if possible. Thank you for your time and your ministry. Oh, and by the way, the men were so grateful for those booklets and Bible studies. It was like Christmas. They almost argued over them, then worked out a sharing system. 'Blessed is the peacemaker for he shall be called a child of God.' Amen. Let's see if I can do this again and get even more people excited about the living God! Last trip, the Lord gave me about 50 people to influence in Christ. Now He has given me double that. Let's see what He does here. May God be with you all at WMP and may our Father continue uniting the many ministries of Christ. I pray to hear from you soon.” ~Aaron M.
