November 2013

The Louisiana State Penitentiary, Angola

On the most recent trip to teach and preach at Angola, the team consisted of four men including myself. Pastor Hayes Wicker, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Naples,Ed Burnham, a business man and former CitiVision board member, and Steve Young, businessman and now Director of House of Hope, first Baptist Merritt Island.  We spent our days ministering to inmates and training pastor/inmates in the seminary program.  

We had many opportunities to see God working in the lives of these men, most of whom will die behind those prison walls. There were three dozen men who trusted Christ as personal savior and will be connected with the pastor/inmates for further discipleship.  Eleven inmates consecrated themselves to become pastors and preachers and attend the four year Bible program.

I was invited back for what, Lord willing, will be a three day evangelistic music concert event called "Gospel Fest", to be held tentatively sometime in early April 2014.

It is always a pleasure to work with the gifted men and women chaplains who know these inmates so well and it has been a blessing to form a bond with these forgotten men who society has written off.  I look forward to visiting Angola in the future and count it a blessing to be invited back over and over again. 

 Thank you for your prayers and financial support of the Ministry of CitiVision.  Without your prayer and donations none of these events would be possible.

Romans 8:37-39

37 But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
