Pastor & Brethren,

May this letter find you all in the best of health spiritually, physically, and mentally. These first two months of 2017 have been somewhat different than normal for me.

  • I have had to make a change in prisons to visit and preaching schedules. (Good Changes)
  • Was nominated to the pulpit committee as our Pastor resigned (No problems) and we started looking for a Pastor. This was a very smooth transition as our Pastor who resigned helped us in this process. We now have Pastor Brandon Graham, from Benton, Arkansas. His dad is Ken Graham, Pastor of Victory Baptist Church. We are excited about the Church moving forward.

 I was informed this month that 2 inmates I had led to Christ and were released from prison in the last couple of years, have died. One by a motorcycle accident and one in his sleep, both of these men were young married men with families. Both men were serving God, one in Mexico and the other in Northeast Texas.

  • I have received a request from a Chaplain to preach a Sunday morning service at a Women’s prison. This will be a first for me.

 I thank you all for your vision in supporting Christ the Answer Prison Ministry with your   prayers, encouragement, and financial support. In the months of January & February, 9 men made professions of faith. Again, thank you for your prayers and support. There is so much that could be testified to concerning God’s blessings on His Church and Ministries.

 A Thought To Ponder:

Prov 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. (This is wisdom)

Prayer Requests:

  • Partner with me in prayer for a great movement within the prisons for 2017.
  • Partner with me in prayer as I preach at a Women’s prison.
  • Partner with me in prayer for my wife’s health.
