Crazy Makes a Difference

Crazy Makes a Difference

Charles S., an inmate at Richland CI, Ohio

 

About seven years ago, I was a drug addict convicted of aggravated burglary and robbery.  I was sentenced to 10 years in prison, some place called Lorain Correctional Institution.

 

I believed I already knew the Lord before I got arrested, but thought I could do it my way.  When I got to Lorain CI, I invited the Lord into my heart for real and began going to religious services there.  It was during this time that they announced a bunch of crazy guys were volunteering to come into the prison to play softball.

 

The team that showed up was called the Saints Prison Ministry.  I went to the game and found it very entertaining.  After the game some of the men began to talk and fellowship with us.  One man in particular spoke with me, so I shared with him that I had no family, and my whole situation up to that time.

 

That man talked with me and shook my hand and took the time to pray with me.  He explained what the Saints Prison Ministry was all about and why they were there.  When we finished that man took my name and number – and he also took a piece of my heart with him!  I have very few people in my life, but he showed me compassion and friendship.

 

Every year on November 16th I receive a birthday card from the Saints Prison Ministry, and I get letters from him.  Words cannot express how uplifting those cards and letters are to me.  I am so thankful for all of you, I appreciate your time and the things you do for people who are forgotten.

 

My only request is that you pray for my son.  I haven’t heard from him in over seven years and it is my prayer that we have the opportunity to bond once again.  I’m praying for you!

UNTIL THE WHOLE WORLD HEARS!

In 2020, God accomplished a great many things for the Saints Prison Ministry. Although we were shut out of the prisons for most of the year, we were still able to share the gospel with a multitude of inmates before the shutdown.

Sadly, in March, our seasons were put on hold while the world struggled with COVID-19. However, we need your help to be ready to take the Gospel to those living in darkness when the gates open again! Will you join us in our goal for 2021 to answer every invitation we receive?
