SPRINGFIELD, MO. — I sent
a letter recently to a friend who made a terrible mistake and now sits in
a jail cell.
I felt led to send
him a reminder of Christ’s love and grace, and also noted
that Daniel and Paul experienced God’s presence while incarcerated.
In addition, I encouraged him to read God’s Word daily and
Today’s Pentecostal Evangel each week.
Every day we receive letters from
inmates like my friend indicating that they found Jesus and encouragement
through this magazine. I’m convinced that making this magazine available
to more inmates must be a priority, because Jesus hasn’t given up on
America’s prison population. He longs to extend a hand to thousands
of men and women who have lost their way. He longs to restore their hope and
give them a new purpose in life.
false religions are flooding prisons with materials contrary to
the Bible. Chaplains want to share the truth of God’s Word
and are urgently requesting additional copies of Today’s
Pentecostal Evangel. But your help is needed to expand our
distribution to prisons.
For $1 a week, you
can declare to the enemy that you have not given up on the souls
of incarcerated men, women and teenagers. For only $1 each week,
you can send an Evangel to four prisoners. That is a
small price to pay for the lives that will be changed. (It
is common for one magazine to be read by a dozen inmates.)
Please pray about what
you can give to send this magazine into prison cells across the
nation. Information on how you can send Today’s Pentecostal
Evangel to a man or woman in prison can
be found here. Your financial gift may hold the keys to an
inmate’s spiritual freedom and help transform our prisons
into centers for revival. Together, let’s seize the opportunity
to touch men and women for Jesus.
