Kairos Winn #29 Went Wonderfully

Some spiritual warfare on Friday and Saturday, but the fruits of the weekend were plentiful.  Many men came to know the Lord, Jesus Christ, and the love of a Christian community.  One man in particular who was a member of a racist hate group laid down his sin of racism after counselling with an Episcopal priest and a Methodist layman, who ultimately led him in the salvation prayer.    The group of men was interesting – they had either been locked up for a long time and trying to get in to Kairos for years and then a group of younger men who had just arrived at the prison and were put on the list to attend Kairos by someone else and weren’t sure why they were there. I was personally blessed to give a man a hug who hadn’t had a hug for the thirty-five years he has been in prison.  Other men had known church before in their lives but had never understood Christianity until the weekend.  A lot of tears were shed during Agape and the Wall mediation on Saturday afternoon.

I just can’t begin to describe how wonderful this ministry is.  It is amazing what Christians can do when they are truly focused on Jesus and his command to visit those in prison.

    May God be praised. I am glad your Kairos weekend went well. I was supposed to serve as clegy on Coffield #26 in Texas this past weekend, but there is a state wide lock down in force and our weekend was cancelled early last week.

    Please pray for the 42 residents who were selected to attend, the stewards who were selected to serve and the team as we all felt strong disappointment and grief at the Kairos weekend being cancelled.

    Thanks be to God for both your and Phil’s continuing prison ministry. Lord grant me the faith, courage and conviction to be able to follow your examples.
