Marriage Seminar Testimonial 2019

 “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” —Hebrews4:16

Our Marriage Seminars continue to make a difference in so many lives of the couples who are in the Texas prison system.  Here is just an example of the results we are seeing.

Hi Betty,

It's been 3 years since my husband and I last saw you and your husband at the Wynne Unit in Huntsville! Just wanted to share that my husband and I are legally married, we are stronger than ever in our commitment and vows. God has blessed us tremendously. I am now the next leader for a KAIROS Outside for Woman in Central Texas.God has used my life in KAIROS Woman's Ministry and Immanuel Motorcycle Ministry. Immanuel MM goes the the Ney unit sharing the gospel. I go and share my testimony of how being a wife, mom and sister to the one's I love who are incarcerated. My husband and I still remember our first encounter as a couple and going through the Marriage seminar. I still remember the 3%,we are going strong as Jesus leads and we follow. My husband has become an amazing Man. In the last 3 years we have never encountered another ministry like WVIW. My husband is now at the Torres Unit and he has taken what he learned and imparts that to these men who's marriages are falling apart. God is good! You all are in our prayers...”

 

We are grateful for stories like these because they encourage us to keep going. We know God has placed families in our lives to be both a blessing to and to be blessed by. We hope you will pray with us for more opportunities in 2019 to encounter couples who need a testimony like the one above.

We have a big year ahead of us and we are counting on you to help us reach as many people as possible.  

 

God Bless You, 

— Johnny  

Building Systems of Evangelism

It is almost midnight and I have just finished grading some assignments from my students at Christ for the Nations.

I teach a class there each Spring to 3rd-year students called "Building Systems of Evangelism". These are amazing young people. They are from all over the world, Africa, South America, India, Central America, and even the USA.

I can tell you the church is in good hands.

These students will carry the Gospel where ever they go. Millions of people will choose to follow Christ through the ministry of those being trained in Bible schools like CFNI today. I am truly blessed to be part of it and see the hearts of these young Christians.


I am very proud of CFNI and proud to say "these are my students."

WVIW Marriage Seminar

 Below is a sweet note we received from a wife from a recent marriage seminar. This is the reason we do what we have done since 1978.

 

"Betty,  Just a note to say thanks to you, Johnny and the entire volunteer staff.  It was even more exciting and informational then I had expected.  I honestly thought it would be dull, boring, school text info, but it was nothing but exciting, powerful and extremely informative.  The volunteers told awesome testimonies, and were down to earth, kind and caring.  Every moment from start to finish each and every day held my attention, made me think, and opened my heart. I believe your seminar has truly helped my husband and I to see where we can and will improve our marriage. Spending time loving on him was just an added bonus. Ya'll have been a blessing that I will never forget, and will always have in my heart."

With a lot of love,

L.A.

Thanks for a Wonderful Golf Tournament

We really appreciate all of your support and participation in this year's golf tournament. Below are the photos taken by our friend Prakash at this year's Golf Tournament.  

Grace with Confidence

 “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”Hebrews4:16

 

A person who embraces grace with both arms, who stops fretting over their sin and begins focusing on their savior, who dries their tears so they see others who are hurting--- this is some kind of person.

God can use us wherever we are.  Brand-new believer, teenage dynamo, thirty-something parent, recommitted midlifer, silver-haired saint.  Whoever, wherever, God has plans for us.

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”  1 Peter 4:10

The only time a grace-filled person feels completely at peace is when they are being used by God for His glory.  When we keep pouring His Word into our hearts, reading it on our own, hearing it taught, studying it with friends, that truth will begin spilling out.  Thirsty people will be drawn to us, holding out their cups.

“The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.”  Revelation 22:17

This is what I have been teaching to my students at Christ for the Nations this year.  God wants to use us all, but for that to happen we must be certain we keep ourselves filled up and walking in grace, in order for people to be drawn to the life-giving grace that is in us.

The folks on the sidelines feel obligated to point out our lack of qualifications—we don’t know enough, aren’t perfect enough, or haven’t been believers long enough—we can gently remind them that God has His own agenda and His own timetable.

Whatever experiences reside in our past or present, God can use them to mold a brighter future for others.  You are more than enough.  You have more than enough grace. 

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”

Romans 8:37

 

Not less than but more than, because of God’s love.  Go and share His grace.

Marriage Seminar at Hutchins Unit

Hutchins prison was amazing! 

Our three day Marriage Seminar had several salvations, recommitments and saved marriages.

These seminars are the primary focus of this ministry and has been for 22 years.

Thank you to all our volunteers and supporters for makeing it all possible.

God Will Destroy Your Shame

Very early this morning God woke me up with the words,"Secret addictions."  I immediately thought, what is that all about. 

I think many christians are hindered by one or more "secret addictions."  40 years ago, I was in bondage to a "secret addiction."  I heard a minister say, "If you have a secret, you will have shame."

I found that to be true in my own life.  Thank God we have a God who can deliver.  When my shame began to interfer with my life, ministry, and marriage, I asked for help from Him.  He touched me and delivered me from a very distructive "secret addiction."

He can and will do the same for you.  Face your own "secret addiction".  Ask God to deliver you.  He will and He will destroy the shame.

It just isn't fair

 I know, at least on some level, that God isn’t fair.  He’s just, yes.  But fair?  Thankfully, no, God is not fair.  After all, if He was fair, we would all be doomed.  God is perfect.  He doesn’t just appear to be perfect, He is perfect.  He cannot tolerate imperfection, and believe me, I have plenty of imperfection.

If God were fair, He would require that I pay for my imperfections (i.e., my sins). Romans 6:23 says the wages of sin is death.  I am glad that, instead of being fair, God is gracious and sent His Son to pay the penalty for my sin (Romans 5:8).

The question is not, “Is God fair?”  But, Is God good?”  We cannot base our belief of God’s goodness on our circumstances.  If we do, we will only view our situation as unfair.  God is good…not because our lives are going well; He is good because He is good.  When we settle in our hearts and minds that God is good, we can trust that He is working in our circumstances for our good.

Trust in the truth of God’s Word…He is good.  He does good.  And He will do it for you.

A Letter From Johnny Moffitt Treasurer of COPE

Originally Published in the COPE Newsletter


Dear Friends, 

2017 looks to be the greatest year for COPE since the early 2000’s. Our new director, Chandra Adams, is proving to be one of the hardest workers for COPE in our history.  She is constantly on the road visiting members, prospective members, and related conferences to encourage, share the benefits, and recruit new members.  We are indeed blessed to have her on staff.
 

 

As treasurer of COPE, I want to tell you that Chandra watches over the COPE funds with diligence and skill.  We are growing and have many opportunities to be a blessing to prison ministers around the world. Several members of the board of COPE are working around the world, at their own expense, to help prison ministers wherever they may be.  

 

Brent Bishop from Canada, not only is doing a great job there, he is also in Kenya, East Africa. William Bumphus, of Indianapolis, has been working in Nigeria for many years, as well as across the United States. Our Board President, Bunny Greenwood and her husband, Bobby Greenwood, a board member; myself and my wife and board member, Betty, are not only ministering in America, but Honduras, Mexico, and Cuba. We are building COPE in other nations as well as at home. COPE members are training prison ministers around the world.  Come be part of it!!!

 

In order to maintain the integrity of the COPE organization and be the blessing to hundreds of ministries God has put us together to serve, we need financial support from you.  Membership dues alone will not cover the expenses.  This fellowship has faithfully served the prison volunteers and ministries for 30 years, all at zero cost to the ones we serve. You will not grow, if you do not give.

 

I am challenging you as a friend of COPE: if you are not a member—join today.

 

Whether you are a member or not, give to enable this fellowship to continue to do its work.  Why not give a monthly gift to help us provide for our Director and an office where the prison ministers and officials of the world can contact COPE and get the help they need.  We need each other!!!

Everyone can give something.  Every ministry can do something.  Any amount each month from all our members and friends will enable this fellowship to continue to minister and bless those ministries and prison volunteers who need our help.  You can do something.  Now is the time to do it.  Go to the COPE web site, www.copeconnections.org, right now and make your commitment known. Let’s all pull together and make COPE great.

 

 

In His Service,

Johnny 

 

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!

An Indescribable Gift

Here is a verse we often use as a hickory switch, thrashing ourselves whenever we stumble or fall short of God’s best for us.

“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”

Romans 3:23

 

And that’s true, of course.  We have sinned.  We’ve already embraced that reality.  We know we fall short of perfection.  Way short.

But notice something interesting about that familiar verse: it ends in a comma.  Meaning sin is not the whole story.  Check out the rest of the sentence:

“And are justified freely by his grace

through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

Romans 3:24

 

We’re not to stop at sin, then; we’re to move on to grace.  Freely.  No payment on our part is required, because the cost has been paid in full, and we’ve been redeemed.

Grace is a gift from God.  We’ve done nothing to deserve this gift.  We simply hold up our hands and say, “Thank you.” That’s grace in a nutshell.  A gift.  With a tag that reads, “For you.”

 

Here’s another verse we chop in half and use as a whip:

“For the wages of sin is death.”

Romans 6:23

 

Our shoulders sag as we nod in agreement.  That’s me.  I’ve sinned.  Now I have to pay for it.  Do you really?  Read the rest of the verse:

but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 6:23

 

How often we’ve fixated on the first part of that truth and ignored the second.  We hear “sin” and“death” and completely miss “gift of God” and “eternal life.”  No wonder we find it so hard to forgive ourselves.  We’re thinking punishment.  God is thinking Christmas.

“Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!”

2 Corinthians 9:15

Our banquet is a special time because we get to celebrate the great work we've done together. 

Thank You. We Love You!

Update: Johnny Moffitt

Wow!  What a tremendous three days.  Betty and I just returned from ministering three nights at the IMA Annual Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas. 

Pastors and Missionaries from across America and around the world.  What an honor to be asked to minister to these men and women of God.  God met us in a special way.  It was great to see old friends and make new ones.  The IMA is a great organization.

Prison Service Update

We had two great services Saturday at the Hutchins Unit near Dallas.

image.jpg

Betty and I went to minister for Al and Tammy Schaefer, a great team of prison ministers from Greenville, TX.

Betty sang in the second service and I preached in both services.

Between 50 and 60 inmates made decisions for Christ in the two services. 

Praise God!!!  He really does love prisoners.
