Dear Ministry Partners and Friends,
As this year draws to an end we wish you a Merry Christmas, as we celebrate the birth of our Savior.
We were in Muskegon, MI the weekend of December 3rd & 4th with Forgiven Ministry for a ODWG Camp and Great Dads Seminar. GOD moved in ways we have not seen in the past eight years! We met with the dads on Saturday Morning before their children arrived for a time of Praise, Worship and Prayer. This particular morning we dealt with Forgiveness and the Holy Spirit worked in an awesome way! Men who don’t show emotion were asking for forgiveness, shedding tears and embracing each another. This is something not seen behind the walls, because they don’t want to show any weakness. GOD worked in the hearts of each dad in ways we can’t explain. Twenty-nine individuals prayed to receive Christ, nine of whom were dads. We were privileged to work with a Chaplain who truly desires to disciple these dads.
During November and December there were seventy individuals who gave their hearts to Christ and another eighty-five renewed their walk with Him.
I want to thank each one who supports this ministry prayerfully and financially. You are an important part of this story.
God has opened the door for twenty-one seminars with Forgiven Ministry between January 29th and November 12th 2011. We have additional seminars at several locations including the Greenville area. We work with two facilities in South Carolina in their re-entry program teaching biblically based Holistic Hardware.
I would like to express our appreciation to each board member for their faithful contribution to this ministry. May God continue His blessings on you and your family.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE
We are looking forward to spending time with our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren during this Christmas Season. We have an additional grandson, Josiah, and great grandson, Andrew, due in early February. We hope each of you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Praise the Lord!!
In His Service,
Jim and Ouida Williams
