In January we reformatted our new Introductory Course and began sending it out to the students. With the new prison mail policy, there is much more work involved processing the mail in the prisons, and mail is taking much longer to get to the inmates. This has been very frustrating for them. Change is not usually an easy thing to deal with. Please pray that they will not be discouraged and give up studying God’s word.
While we are working through completing the reformatting of the courses, we are able to start looking forward to the work that needs to be done this year, and beyond. We are looking for additional local churches, businesses, and individuals to partner with us financially as we strive to reach inmates with the Word of God. We are also looking to develop some more churches as hubs for the pick-up of the correspondence courses, more volunteers as Bible Study Partners, and Bridge Builders small group leaders. We ask for your prayers that doors will be opened to us to present our ministry. If your church or Sunday school class would be interested in having a representative from New Creations Prison Ministries come and talk to them about what we are doing, please contact the NCPM office.
I would like to leave you with the following words from one of our students. It is only by the grace of God and the generosity of faithful givers that our work is possible.
“Thank you kindly for the Bible Study Course. It was a privilege to have a guide to follow and learn with as I read, studied, prayed, and completed these courses. They are very knowledgeable, and have you go back to the basics and focus on building a long-lasting relationship with Christ Jesus my Lord J It’s deepened my love for Jesus and has helped my relationship grow tremendously”
