Greetings and blessings to everyone!
As we are entering into the holiday season, this is when I begin thinking of everything for which I have been thankful. I am thankful to the Lord for using me at Chester County Prison. I am thankful for my church and very thankful for my family. I am also extremely thankful for the many supporters and churches that help Peter and myself with their monetary and prayer support each year.
My work continues with the women of Chester County Prison. I am filled with confidence that I am reaching through to the women with God’s Word. I am able to offer teaching truth to the women to help them in certain areas of their lives they cannot overcome alone. In teaching the women, they are then able to recognize their need for seeking the Lord for His strength and His help on a daily basis. I also teach the women not to go into despair, but rather to cry out to the Lord as Paul did. 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 “Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me. My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
I am able to show the women through the Word of God that the Lord will help us get through the hardships in our lives. There is one thing that will never change– God has promised that He will never, ever leave us. God will never lie. Please pray for the women of Chester County Prison that they will know they are loved by God and also pray they will recognize their need to depend totally upon the Lord.
Thank you again for your prayers and support. May God bless you all this holiday season.
