“ Go into all the world and preach the God News to everyone”
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This verse is a command of the Lord. I want to tell all the Good News that is found in Christ by
His death and resurrection. Time is short and He is coming soon so let us be busy about our
It is hard to believe but last month I turned 50. My heart feels full of the life that Christ has
given me. My body doesn’t feel as young as my heart and it hasn’t slowed me down. There is a
work to be done and I press on.
Last month a team of ten people from Calvary Chapel Norwalk and I did a drama at Men’s
Central Jail. About 100 men were in attendance who came out for chapel that night, it was a very
different atmosphere then with the women. It was amazing to witness men raising their hands in
praise to Jesus. The Gospel message was clearly given and men came to Christ. It was a sight to
see in this day and age.
Here at CRDF we are not the only faith. There are many other beliefs and the women can get
very confused. The other day as I was doing my “one on ones” a woman came up to me. She was
very sincere as she opened up her Jehovah Witness Bible and our Bible. She had so many
questions about Jesus and who He was. I gently took her to the scriptures. She said “as a Jehovah
Witness we don’t believe what I am reading about Jesus.” I spent about 45 mins with her. I gave
her the Truth of God’s Word and directed her to continue to read the scriptures with an open
heart. She left and said “I just want to know.” I told her to keep seeking and you will find. We
know Gods Word will fight the lie. The open door of freedom to proclaim the name of Jesus is
quite amazing here at CRDF amongst all the other faiths. I saw an inmate that had been in many
different housing areas. She stopped me to thank all who come in and serve. She said “I speak on
behalf of all the inmates. We would be lost without you guys” With tears in her eyes she said
“Please let all your volunteers know how much we appreciate them.” Let us not grow weary
Saints, but continue to be a light in this dark place. There is a great work being done here and you
are doing an excellent job. THANK YOU!
I am sad to say that one of our faithful volunteers, Christie is moving. Christie is a
huge help doing one on ones during the week and will be greatly missed. . She has been a
tremendous help throughout the years. On the flip side we are excited to see what God has in
store for her next. Well done Christie for your faithful service for the past 7 years. You will be
missed and hard to replace. We pray for Gods direction and His will to be done in all that you do.
Next month I will be taking my vacation. I will be doing an outreach in the streets of Detroit.
Some have said “Why Detroit?” My response is that they need Jesus. A team of us will be
ministering to those in need of Jesus. We are living in dark times yet an exciting time so saints
let’s Preach the Gospel to ALL. Until next month J
Proclaim His Name to ALL
