I just passed the 20 year mark of ministry at Chester County Prison. That’s 20 years of Monday nights and a few weekday visits along the way. Averaging 50 Monday nights a year that makes 1,000 times I have been inside that prison.
We have probably averaged about 20 inmates each Monday night and allowing for repeat “customers” we might have had 5 new faces each Monday night. That’s a total of 5,000 men with whom we have shared God’s word.
How many have been saved as a result we cannot know but it is helpful for me to remember that we are responsible for effort and it is for each man to decide for himself what to do with the message of salvation. It is then in the hands of God for results.
