Our ministry at the county jail is a revolving door. We get to spend a few weeks or months with people, and then they're released and we lose touch. Over and over inmates have expressed to us how they wish they could continue studying the Bible with us after they're released.
After a long time of prayer, plus lots of encouragement from friends, inmates and the chaplain we work with at the jail, we finally got off our duff (metaphorically speaking) and did something about it. Today we had a meeting with the leadership of Everett First Presbyterian church. They were genuinely excited about what we're doing and have graciously agreed to give us the use of a room on Friday nights so that we can continue our Bible studies with those who are released from the jail (and anyone else who shows up). Everett First Pres is a block away from the jail in downtown Everett.
The chaplains at the jail are going to get the word out to the inmates.
This is very exciting! Please pray that people will find their way to us and that God will bless our little endeavor.
