November Update

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord
— Romans 8:37-39 (NIV)

 

By: Dr. Johnny Moffitt

This passage of scripture is one of my favorites.  Paul is telling us who we are when tough times come or hard things happen.  “We are more than conquerors.”  He could say that because he had experienced persecution, distress, calamity, suffering, hunger, affliction, and tribulation; and those experiences qualified him to speak out.  In all this he was victorious…an overcomer…more than a conqueror.

We are More Than Conquerers

Paul knew Christ lived in him, and Christ in him was the hope of glory.  We have that same Christ in us, which becomes our hope. We do not have to be afraid of what may come.  Perfect love casts out fear, and Christ in us is perfect love. Yes, even in the midst of all that is going on in our lives, we can have peace, just like Paul.

God’s perfect love removes any and all fear in the midst of our troubles.  Do not be afraid. Take your eyes off of your situation or what is to come, and look to Him who loves us.  Nothing in all creation will be able to separate you from His love. It is His perfect gift to you, and it never fails!

This month has been a special time of blessing for WVIW.  

I conducted a Manhood Seminar in the LaBlanc Prison in Beaumont, Texas.  Although this was my first time in this prison, I saw many men I had met in other Texas prisons.  When you have been going to these prisons as long as I have, you are bound to see men in different prisons.  They become not only people we minister to, but also friends.

We try to live lives victoriously before these men so that they might see that Christ in them can bring them that same hope.  They can be more than conquerors…victorious…and overcomers. That same God who lived in Paul, lives in us, and can live in them.

Pray for us as we host a Marriage Seminar in the Gibb Lewis Prison this month.  We are also getting ready to take a team back to Cuba in December, and a team to the prisons of Honduras in February.  We know in all this we are overcomers…victorious…and more than conquerors.


Thank you for all you do to help WVIW carry the love of God and the message of Jesus Christ to the least of these—the oppressed—and the special gospel workers in very tough circumstances.  It is because you care that we are able to go.  May God richly bless you.

If you can help us close out 2018 with a financial gift, please go to our donation site, www.wviw.com, and do so by December 31 in order to receive tax credit in 2018.

International Prison Ministry in Honduras

“Lord,” he said, “now I can die content! For I have seen him as you promised me I would. I have seen the Savior you have given to the world.”
— Luke 2:29-31 Living Bible

Johnny Moffitt praying over the Ministry Leaders at Puerta del Cielo in La Ceiba, Honduras.

International Prison Ministry in Honduras

By: Dr. Johnny Moffitt

That is the way I felt, as I entered the maximum security, National Penitentiary, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.  We had gone there to minister to the more than 4,000 inmates.  Over 500 men had died from fires in that prison in the last ten years.  Our team consisted of me, Betty (my wife), Travis Moffitt (our son), Pastor David Humphries, missionary Michael Scudiero, missionary Mitch Arbeláez of Go to Nations, our driver and Connect Global Honduras National Director-Jorge Amador, and several local prison volunteers.

I have ministered in prisons in twenty-seven nations, and I have never seen anything like what we witnessed.  After clearing security, we entered the prison.  Immediately, we were met with a gauntlet formed by over 300 prisoners standing on both sides of the sidewalk, for over 100 yards.  The video we took of our passing through this line is over three minutes long.  These men were clapping and cheering and reaching out to shake our hands.  In the background, over the cheering, we could hear the sound of several shofars announcing a call to worship throughout the prison.  I was captivated by this display of love and honor paid to us by these men.

In the yard where we were to have our service, were over 900 men waiting for the Word of God brought to them by this team of Americans.  It was absolutely amazing!  I will never forget it.  We worshiped, danced, sang, and there was great joy in this very dangerous prison.  For just a few hours peace ruled.  And to top it off, over 200 men gave their hearts to Jesus that day.  All glory to Him!!!

After the service, the prisoners actually served the team lunch.  In this prison where food is a valuable commodity, somehow, these men fed us a wonderful meal of chicken, potatoes, and plantains.  I felt like Simeon of old, when he first saw Jesus; “now I can die content.”  I don’t mean today—I mean I am content with my ministry and know I   am doing what God called me to do.

Families Impacted by Prison

In June We had the priviledge of speaking in several churches across Honduras

We had a truly great time speaking on a handful of topics, one being how prison impacts families. We sometimes do not realize how many people we know personally or are connected to that are affected by prison.

I hope you find this message informative, encouraging and uplifting!

Honduras Trip Update - Our Visit to Puerta Del Cielo

Johnny Moffitt praying over the Ministry Leaders at Puerta del Cielo in La Ceiba, Honduras.

In June, Betty Moffitt and I were privileged to visit several churches in La Ceiba, Honduras.

One of our visits was to a church named, Puerta del Cielo, or Heaven's Door.

I love ministering in a place where the spirit of the Lord is so evident. This church can worship and they are prayer warriors too.

Our team spoke at Puerta Del Cielo Several times throughout the week and I was glad to be able to pray over the leadership to kick off the National Ministry Leaders Summit. 

Thank You for your Prayers and Support! We truly had a great time in La Ceiba, Honduras.

Heading to Prison in Honduras

On June 8, Betty and I are returning to Honduras for extended ministry.

We are speaking at two national conferences on prison ministry. We are also ministering inside two prisons. These are very dangerous prisons, greatly overcrowded, and housing many of the world's most dangerous prisoners.


We are excited to be going back where we have had a great response in the past.

Follow us on Facebook as we will be reporting to you regularly. 

Our time in Cuba was amazing

We are thinking about our great trip to Cuba.

God met the team in a tremendous way.  We were able to teach in three conferences and almost ten churches.  We ministered to several hundred people and I am especially thrilled to have ministered to over 500 prison ministry volunteers.

Here is part of an email I received from one of our hosts.

"Greetings from the green alligator.

I hope you had made it back safely.

I want to thank you once again for coming down and being obedient to the voice of the holy spirit. We had a wonderful time together!!!  I know this is just the beginning of the many things God is going to do through your ministry down here."

The entire team is excited about going back.  Watch this blog for more reports on the trip. 

Johnny and Betty Moffitt will be in Cuba

This week Betty and I will lead a team to Cuba. This will be my 3rd trip to Cuba. The focus will be on training and encouraging Pastors, Church Leaders, and Volunteers who all serve their fellow Cuban citizens year round. 

Please keep this group in your prayers as they travel November 11-22. 

Our team hope's to update from Cuba if cell service permits, and share with you the details of our travels. 

Thank you for your partnership and prayers. We would not have the ministry we do without you!
