Ministry GROWING

Every year, our mailing list grows. In 2007, we were mailing weekly studies, (AKA Virtual Chapels),  to 15 inmates. In 2013, we are mailing out 400 weekly studies each month… and our list keeps growing–Praise God! This effort involves copying, paper, envelopes, stapling, book purchases & postage. It costs about $3 for each inmate per month (about $35 per year, per inmate). Your donations help cover the cost of these materials. The more we receive, the more we can help!  No gift is TOO small.

We greatly appreciate your prayers and support and we value your feedback. Please consider leaving a comment below.

Please pray for this ministry,

Pastor Gerry

Put Me In Charge…

Wow, this girl has a great plan! Love the last thing she would do the best.
This was written by a 21 yr. old female who gets it. It’s her future she’s worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that she’s being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion.

This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco, TX.

PUT ME IN CHARGE . .

Put me in charge of food stamps, no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

Put me in charge of Medicaid. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your “home” will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a “government” job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22-inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the “common good.”

Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self-esteem,” consider that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self-esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices.   The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

I love this one….

AND while you are on Gov’t subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov’t welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.

Isn’t it weird that in AMERICA our FLAG and our CULTURE offend so many people….. but our BENEFITS don’t?
