“We meet everyday for Bible study.”

A group of men on 2 South wing are making a difference for Christ in their section of the jail. God is giving them favor with other inmates and even the guards. One deputy went to a Bible study briefly, received prayer from the inmates, and thanked them afterward. On another occasion, a deputy testified to his superior that when the men have their Bible study, “the whole floor is quiet and at peace.” A couple of weeks ago, a homosexual man sat down with a small group of the believing inmates. After they shared the Lord with him, the man said, “I don’t want to be attracted to men anymore.” They prayed with the man to receive Christ.

Pray that revival would break out in Monroe County Jail. Pray that God would give Brian boldness as he speaks to the men—guards and inmates. Pray for leaders to be raised up among the inmates.
