“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20 & 21)
Our December Newsletter is available to download here.
At the beginning of the pandemic, we were greatly encouraged by an email from one of our supporters which reminded us that even through the time of restrictions, we still had a God who could do more than we could ask or imagine. That message has been something that has continued to come to mind over the last year, as time and time again, we have seen God at work in the hearts and lives of those in our prisons.
Whether it has been through chaplaincy work, written material or letter writing, or in more recent months, through services and Bible studies once again, we give thanks that throughout the year, we have been provided with opportunities to encourage those prisoners who are believers and to reach others with the Gospel. We are grateful that these activities have given good opportunities to reach many prison staff as well.
The continued prayers of so many individuals and churches for us have also been a real encouragement. We give thanks to the Lord for the way He has answered those prayers, and for His continued provision for the work.
Each year we find that the Christmas period is a time when many prisoners particularly feel their separation from their families. Please pray that those carrying out chaplaincy work will be helped as they seek to offer them support through this time, and that as prisoners attend Christmas services and receive seasonal written material in the weeks that lie ahead, the Lord will speak to them through His Word.
Thank you for your interest and support throughout this year.
