What A Thanksgiving!

There is a prison in south Texas, near Huntsville, where God had the builders put a chapel over 40 years ago. To this prison, God sent missionary Chris Athey, with the Eternal Word of the Living God in hand. Brother Athey is a fervent witness for Christ, and is passionate about seeing people gloriously saved. Through his years at this facility, God has built an incredible work. Thousands have come to know Christ as their personal Saviour while in this prison. Many have enrolled in Bible courses, and grown greatly in their walk with the Lord. Many have graduated the 3-year Bible course, gotten out of prison and gone on to serve the Lord in full-time Christian service.
Others have graduated the 3-year Bible course and serve the Lord fervently right where they are. This prison is a special place that God has used to save many souls, and change many lives for the glory of God.
To this prison I was privileged to go on Thanksgiving Day this year. I had the opportunity to report to these faithful brethren about what God is doing in my life and what He has done in Croatia through their prayers.
We had a glorious time rejoicing together in the greatness of God and His great blessings that He has bestowed upon us, and in preaching the Word. These men love to hear the Word of God preached, and the louder the better.
Many of these men know that God used prison to get their attention, and save them and turn their lives around. Some will never see physical freedom again, yet they rejoice in the Lord daily. Contrary to the popular (and offensive) stereotype, not everyone in prison claims or believes they are innocent.
These men are my faithful brethren and prayer warriors and I am so thankful to God that I have the privilege of knowing them and serving the Lord with them.

God Bless Brother Chris Athey and my faithful brethren!

To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ ..... Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
