Zealous for the Lost in Prison
“It is not the will of my Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.” Matthew 18:14
The Mercy and Grace Banquet was amazing! Over 600 people celebrated what God is doing through his prison ministry! We minister in an average of 37 church services each month. 1,975 adults and youth accepted or recommitted their lives to Jesus Christ in 2017. Whewww, look at God!!!
One man there had been out of prison for just 22 days after serving 15 years inside. Kevin, one of the speakers, has been out 9 months after serving 20 years in prison. Kirt led worship and shared. He has been out 6 months, after serving 31 years in prison.
Kirt, Mark, and JC were evangelizing and preaching on the same prison yard as inmates and as free men were sitting at the same table together at the banquet. Danny thought the singer was especially anointed. Then he realized that he knew this worship singer.
Danny had spent 5 years at a prison with Kirt and they were very close. He approached the stage and said, “Kirt, it’s Danny!” God has done an incredible job in these men’s lives and in the lives of many people who are incarcerated! He changes hearts and lives!
That is what Mercy & Grace Ministries yearns to do. 97% of the people who are incarcerated now are going to get out. They are going to be your neighbors, your children’s neighbors, or your grandchildren’s neighbors. So ask yourself: “do you want these people coming out with anger and hatred in their hearts or with hearts transformed with the love of Jesus Christ?”
When I think of the faces of the men in prisons or the girls in two different juvenile halls, I am zealous for them to accept the Lord as their Savior. If you’re reading this, I know that you have a heart for the incarcerated lost, too.
So please consider making a year-end, tax-deductible donation to Mercy & Grace as all of us together can bring the gospel into these ripe harvest fields. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your prayers and financial support. Have a Merry Christmas and May God continue to bless you!
