The Court Jester

Juan was the local “Court Jester” who would bounce all over the cell block making light of everything and everyone in a halfway fun manner. A few weeks ago, he approached Dave who leads our jail outreach. During the conversation he became very serious and attentive to what the Lord was saying to him through the Word. Juan realized the gravity of the Gospel message. Eventually, he poured out his heart to God, confessing his sins openly and making Jesus Lord of his life. Pray for Juan as he is quite clever and appears to have influence over his fellow inmates. Dave gave him an introductory bible lesson for him to complete on his own. By God's grace he can be an effective witness for the Lord in jail and beyond.

Praise God for Jason G., Paul S., Charles S., James M., Jeff D. and James A. who also got saved this past month. Pray that these men would get grounded in the faith.
