And He is truly able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us!
2014 at MCJ has proved God’s word to be spot on; while 2,126 one on one visits were taking place, 24,463 men and women assembled for Bible Studies and worship services. All I can say is, the Lord is on a roll and He is after the hearts and souls of “the least of these”. His mandate: to set free those who are bound, to give abundant grace where sin abounds, and to extend extraordinary amounts of mercy in a place that seems to have none, has not ceased. Through each volunteer, His word goes forth which doesn’t just inform, it transforms and according to the power that works in us, the love of Christ emanates to bring a new found hope and cover a multitude of sins! Glory be to Almighty God!
What an amazing year it’s been and what an awesome honor and privilege it’s been to be a part of it!
Last month Judy R. led the troops, again, to fill 1200 bags with the Word of God and all kinds of goodies to pass out to all the inmates the following day for Christmas. It was a glorious time for the inmates, a little Holy day cheer if you will, and a lot of heartfelt responses came from those on the receiving end. One in particular rang in my heart, “My family didn’t remember me this Christmas, but you did! God bless you!”
Our heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers, you’re the best! To the Gateway to Glory Board of Directors, God bless you and Happy New Year.
It’s a New Year but the same God yesterday, today and forever…Hallelujah!
To God be the glory!
