Dear Friends & Supporters,
Since September 1992 Our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ has been touching hearts of those behind prison bars in the Montgomery County Detention Facility( M C D F ) and the city and federal jails in Montgomery,
We have witnessed over 21,866 men & women inmates invite Jesus Christ into their hearts. The Lord has raised up a
We minister to inmates from all denominations (Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Church of Christ, Catholic, Pentecostal, Lutheran, Church of God, Assemblies of God, Holiness, Episcopalian etc.) We have reached other religions too, (Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, Islamic, Atheists, and even a professed Satanist) with God’s unconditional agape love through His Son Jesus Christ. All with the purpose of obeying Jesus command to go into the whole world and spread His message of repentance and forgiveness of sins through the shedding of His blood on Calvary’s Cross.
America took a spiritual & moral downturn in 1963 when the highest court of the United States of America (Supreme Court) decided to eliminate prayer and bibles from public schools. As one inmate said, "Brother Tom isn’t it ironic that our society takes our bibles away when we begin our first day of school and then gives our bibles back when we come to prison".
One day as I was having lunch with a friend who retired after sitting on the bench as a circuit court judge for over 20 years, were approached by another respectable person in our state. The person asked when learning of my position as Chaplain,"what difference do you think you can make with all these prisoners"? "Our society needs to lock them up and throw away the key". As I was pondering how to respond to such an introduction my friend the judge spoke up and said,"Sir for over 20 years of sitting on the bench I saw many people pass through my courtroom"."I learned that if a person has lust in their heart under certain circumstances that person could commit rape, if they have greed then they will steal and when a person gets angry enough that person could commit murder". I do not know of any one else but Jesus Christ who can change a heart from within. Do You? The gentleman dropped his head and responded,"We have all learned that since we were children in Sunday school". I am in absolute agreement with the judge there is no one else who can change a sinner’s heart from within except Jesus Christ. Do You?
