Visit the Prisoners

Amalia, our cook, has been with us for over 20 years. Today she was very ill due to high blood pressure & diabetes. We are awaiting the results of her examinations.

We had a couple of folks offer to sponsor a child in university or in dialysis. To be clear I want you to know that this will NOT go to the child. This is to help with their expenses.

Some of our men and boys began taking our cabinets & sheetrock from one of the apartments so that we can use it for any new staff members who come. This is my step of faith that God is sending us new staff.

I made a month of radio shows for KAJN.

Our first girl in 1989 who first called me Papi is Angelina our bilinguel secretary.

The 6th command of Jesus is for us to visit those in prison. It is easier to say that they deserve what they got but no one in their right mind would want God to give us what we deserve. Even Paul went to prison and 11 of the 12 apostles were killed as enemies of the state.

We never know why a person did what they did and truly there are many who don’t know why they themselves did what they did. Jesus says we are to forgive 70 times 7 times. That means we give them a second chance and then a third and so on.

I was raised in a small southern town in Louisiana and attended a school where there were no drugs and little alcohol. I stayed busy with athletics and girlfriends and my friends. But I cannot tell you what I would have done had I lived in an era of drugs, pornography, gangs and filthy movies, books, music & TV. Would I have the life I have now had my circumstances been different?

My pastor, Melvin, visits a number of prisons weekly! Yes, weekly! He speaks of God’s love and has seen many men changed. The greatest prison is the prison of our minds and until we can help those prisoners we are not doing what we were called to do.
