Following Sunday morning worship I will be headed back to Louisiana Sate Penitentiary in Angola, LA for a week of teaching and preaching.  For over 10 years I have been working at our largest maximum security prison in America … and God has blessed the ministry.

In the last few years I have been moved to teach Crossways’ materials on a more regular basis …specifically … See Through the Scriptures … a 40-unit overview of the Bible … done in 3 days!  This will be the 4th class of 50 inmates … praise God!

In addition … we have been doing 1-day workshops in Camps C & D … this time doing the Crossways’ short-course … “An Apostles’ Creed for a New Millennium.”  We are privileged to have 25 men at each camp for these full days sessions!

This will also be our 2nd opportunity to gift each participant with his own copy of a brand-new hardcover ESV study Bible.  Thanks to the generosity of my current church (First Lutheran in Texarkana TX) and the first church I served (Immanuel Lutheran in Belvidere, IL) we have been able to bless more than 200 men thus far.

Please join me in praying for the men, Warden Burl Cain and his staff, and for safe travel and Spirit-led teaching!
