March 2015 Jottings – Chaplain Lil

“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.” John 3:16-18 (MSG)

I have been showing the women of Chester County Prison God’s love for them no matter how lost they may feel. God is showing me his heart for these women who are lost. It is crucial that we take the task to walk as Christians, in this unbelieving world and the way we treat others. Some are so quick to judge us and our Christian walk. Some say “Look at those Christians. See how they are treating others.” We as Christians must love the outcast, the unlovable. God continues to show me how to love the outcast and the unlovable women at Chester County Prison; for that it is the way it is supposed to be. God’s love for these inmates will empower them to dig deeper in their personal Christian walk.

Behind the walls at Chester County Prison
• Current women population is over 100 women.
• Some of the women at the prison are now holding a prayer time and bible study.
• Success Story- One of the women that I counseled while being at Chester County prison is out and back home with her family and is working.
Thank you for your continue prayers and support for Onesimus Prison Ministry.

May God Bless you
