Seminars for Inmates at Greene, Coxsackie, and Hudson Correctional Facility

Please pray for the inmates that will attend our presentations on Wednesday, August 26, in New York State...that we will say the right words, and they will hear what they need to hear. In our experience, inmates have thanked us for saying something that we don't recall mentioning. I think it's a God thing.

If you know anyone willing to sponsor some of our books so that we can leave them for the prisoners' use, please ask them to e-mail:
