Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! Psalm 133:1
They came to visit with us from a church in a nearby county. Twelve members of the Free Souls in Christ Ministry, all of whom are of Hispanic heritage, spend much of the day with us...
From 12:45 in the afternoon until 8 o'clock at night, the men from the church here at the Sullivan Correctional Facility gathered in the chapel with our brothers and sisters from the outside to worship God together.
One guest brought his guitar while he and several of the ladies led us in singing. As if often the way it is with Hispanic music, it was very loud, lively and powerful. But I loved it.
Then, after what seemed like several hours of music and singing, the other guests from the group took their respective turns giving us exhortations and encouragement from the Scriptures. Lastly, their pastor, Tony Torres, gave the closing sermon.
At five o'clock we stopped for supper. I helped to serve everyone their food. It was refreshing to be able to eat our meal and freely mingle with everyone. And I've probably said this a thousand times, but God is not hindered by prison walls. Nothing is impossible with Him (Luke 1:37). So while men like me cannot get out to visit any churches, God simply brings the churches in here. How cool is this? It was a great day.
