My husband Jay preached at the county jail each Sunday, for over twenty years. The opposition at the Sheriff's Department, became almost unbearable so he quit doing this. Today Jay let me know, he's gonna start ministering at the jail again, the weekend after Easter. The issues down at the Sheriff's Department have finally been resolved. This is such good news and he's looking forward to filling that position once again:) Photo: NOT MINE, Borrowed from Pixabay

Good luck to Jay for returning to his jail ministry. The good thing about preaching to inmates is that people are so receptive to the gospel. It is a kairos, a moment of grace both for the inmates and minister. I have also my jail ministry in this part of the world. After Easter, my team will distribute toiletries to the inmates after celebrating liturgy with them.

Most of them have already heard the truth, but rejected it. When they're in jail, a church service becomes a way to get out of their cell. Jay brings them an opportunity, for the Lord Jesus Christ to change their heart and life!
