A Touch of Green in a Sea of Gray

by Jimmy Cochran, Director of Team Operations

For most of 2020, we have been hit from all sides with bad news, terrible numbers and a virus which seems to be relentless in its attack on people around the globe. The coronavirus has taken this once beautiful and colorful world and covered it in a mire of negativity and painted it gray.

However, on August 24, 2020 the Lord dipped His paintbrush and dripped a bit of color on Canton, GA! The 2020 Saints Prison Ministry SE Golf Classic, sponsored once again by our partners at Real Momentum, took place at the beautiful Fairways of Canton and what a wonderful turnout we had for the event. Eighty-four golfers signed up to play, beating our previous high of 60 in 2017, and they were not disappointed. Magnolia Golf Group did a fantastic job with team pictures and played our 5-minute video shot by Liberty University on one of their giant electronic leaderboards, a new addition the event! Low scores were the norm, with the winning foursome shooting a 47 and taking home some terrific prizes. In addition to some fantastic golf, we were able to share how God is transforming lives behind bars and that no virus will stop the expansion of His Kingdom.

Overall, it was a great day as we were able to taste, for but a moment, some semblance of normalcy. The small bit of rain we had in the morning was not enough to dampen the spirits of those who came out to support the ministry. In the end, everyone was able to enjoy a great day on the course, helping in our efforts to share the gospel behind bars!

Our journey took us to  Plainfield CF, Westville CF, Pendelton CF, Correctional Industrial Facility, New Castle CF and Heritage Trail CF. We played in front of 377 prisoners, of which 372 stayed to listen to the gospel. We handed out over 350 copies of the gospel of John and were blessed to witness 53 men indicate they asked Christ to be their Lord and Savior for the first time!
