Dear Ministry Partners and Friends,
The New Year has gotten off to a great start. We were able to obtain a copy of the movie Courageous and the license. We have already had several public showings and seen God work in some awesome ways. We were able to show the movie at Avery Mitchell Correctional Institution, the chapel was packed and we witnessed thirty-eight men pray to receive Christ. We offered the eight week follow up Bible Study and forty men signed up. Pray that God will use this to change their lives.
We conducted four seminars in the past two months, two of which were in conjunction with Forgiver Ministry One Day with God Camps. We were able to witness fifty-four individuals pray to receive Christ as Lord and Savior. Praise to God for what we are witnessing through the ministry. It’s so rewarding to be a part of this ministry and witness how God is changing the lives of dads and moms in order to bless their children.
We are excited about what God is going to do through the remaining Seminars we have scheduled and the Holistic Hardware life skills classes. We had one class graduate in January and another will graduate in March.
We have posted our 2012 Fund Raising Campaign on our website under the Prison pages. I would like for you to review it and tell your friends and associates.
We are still praying and asking you to pray for these ministry needs as God grows His ministry. A vehicle with more cargo space, as well as some additional sound equipment is still needed. I am asking you to join us in prayer trusting God to supply all our needs in 2012. You can check us out at www.blueridgeministries.org for ways to give and for a schedule of upcoming events.
Board Members, Thanks for your faithful support and service as we begin 2012. I would like to thank Grover Todd for his faithful service as Chairman for the past several years as he changes positions and Rich Bigger as he assumes the role as Chairman. I would also like to thank Bob Turner for his and Ann’s faithful years of service as he resigns from the board and assumes the role as marketing agent for the ministry. We welcome Tammy Simms to the board and for what she has been able to bring to the table already, Tammy, thanks for hitting the ground running.
In His Service,
So shall My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. NAS
