Editor’s journey


A friend in jail

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.

Unfortunately, many 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.
