Pastor & Brethren,
Greetings and Blessings to each of you, I trust that each and everyone is in good spiritual and physical health. We rejoice in God’s special blessings on the prison ministry these past two months. This month (Feruary) Pastor Leroy Watson, at Bay City Baptist Church, called me and invited me to a “Old Warriors of the Cross” preaching day being held on March 5th. In our conversation he also informed me that the church was sending me funds to buy three (3) cases of KJV Bibles, for the prisons ministy. They have been ordered. Praise Jehovah-Jireh (Eternal God who sees and provides)

I was excited at this offer and , AGAIN, God’s timing was perfect. I ordered two (2) cases of English Bibles and one (1) case of Spanish Bibles. I Praise God always and I thank you Pastor Watson and Bay City Baptist Church. I was deciding, at the time whether to buy bibles or christian literture/Tracts. With the bible gift taken care of, I can now order the literture required.

I have also been contacted by Pastor Shawn Nichols of Bayou Drive Baptist Church in Alvin, Texas. He requested going into one of the prisons with a few men from his church and spending a 12 hour day going cell-to-cell and holding a preaching service. This is part of their year-long evangelism church training. The men going in will have never been in a prison atmosphere. What an introduction and challenge for face to face witnessing.

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, 24 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 this ministry already in 2016. “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16b.

Thought To Ponder concerning “STANDARDS & SEPERATION”
“Having CONVICTIONS is being so thoroughly CONVINCED that something is absolutely true that you take a stand for it regardless of the CONSEQUENCES”-Josh Me Dowell- Beyond Belief to convictions.

Prayer Requests:
1) Partner with me in prayer for the breaking down of religious walls that are not God ordained.
2) Partner with me in prayer that churches become strong in worship, fellowship, and service.
3) Partner with me in prayer for spiritual wisdom, knowledge, and understanding as I deal with various prison officers, medical staff, maintenance personnel, and the incarcerated.

Serving the Saviour,

Bro Ron Papa
