From Jeff and Andre, 12-15-2015:

We have continued to visit the jail weekly, and are always blessed by our discussions of Scripture and fellowship with the men.  We have done a couple of Genesis Groups in the jail, covering the first 4 Process Steps.  There have been a couple of men who have contacted us or stopped by the GSM Office Open Genesis Men’s Group on Tuesday after they have been released.  

Last week I visited a POD, and the gentleman had a Bible that GSM had given to another individual.  He said that he really appreciated the ESV Study Bible in the jail, and it had helped him understand a lot of what he had been struggling with. He also said that our visits and these Bibles are really making a difference in the PODs. Not only do we encourage the men, but those who are encouraged by our visits and the Bibles, have taken on initiatives to form Bible studies with those who are not able to attend when we visit.  It was a very encouraging word for me to hear.

Jail News: Soon, the jail will be organizing a “Redirection POD” that will provide one POD that will focus on those who are wanting to improve themselves.  This POD will have a focused effort to help the residents with life skills, counseling and Spiritual support…maybe you can help??  Call GSM for more information. 

Anyway, we continue to provide bibles to those who request them, and we have an ongoing need for funds to continue to provide bibles to those in jail.  If you would like to donate, please indicate  your donations is for Jail Ministry.

Thank you.

P.S. - we recently had 2 GSM'ers attend the Benton County Jail Volunteer training (Angie and John). Please pray that they will hear and follow the Holy Spirit as they consider their next step.
