Christ the Answer
Bro. Ron Papa – Missionary to the Incarcerated – Preaching, Teaching, Bible Studies, and Cell to Cell Mentoring 09/01/2016
Pastor & Brethren,
Thank be to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, blessed be His name. It still amazes me how our Savior can bless his children. I cannot express the gratitude I have for your generous and continuous prayers and support. We cannot bring the whole world to Christ, but we must bring Christ to the whole world. Jude is a good fight for the faith book to read.
I received a letter from an inmate who said he had 6 life sentences. He wants to know how to handle life in the prison. What a challenge to help this man; 1) to accepting Christ, and 2) to living in prison. I also received a letter from a new born-again prisoner who requested a concordance so he could learn more about the Bible. Also an inmate is being released in Janurary of 2017 and wants a bible believing, bible preaching, Christ centered church. To him I will find IBC’s in the city he is being released to and give him the address, Pastors name, and phone number of each church I find. He will write each church and explain who he is. I pray a church will respond to a request like this.
I had the privilege to be involved in a 3 day prison revival where we went cell-to-cell and also held services. In this revival we spent 30 hours. 24 hours of cell-to-cell witnessing and 6 hours of services. Some men were saved, some dedicated their lives, and some not interested. Christian literature and Bibles were passed out.
I have the privilege to teach another voyager class (26 lessons concerning the mind) in 3 different prisons. This program allows me to preach the word of God and share many scriptures
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 July & August, 14 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.
A Thought to ponder concerning Christian Character
As you read John chapter 13: 1-38. Focus on verses 34-35 and then answer the questions below concerning the Born-Again, Christian
John 13:34-35 (KJV) A new commandment I give unto you, That ye LOVE one another; as I have LOVED you, that ye also LOVE one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have LOVE one to another.
Prayer Requests: (Ongoing)
1) Partner with me in prayer for the breaking down of religious walls, in prison, 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 we prepare to vote this November.
Serving the Saviour,
Bro Ron Papa
