Prison Service Update

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

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.

Marriage Seminar Hughes Unit

Tomorrow we meet up with a wonderful team of volunteers in Gatesville, Texas, to prepare for a “Marriage Seminar” for 33 very special inmate couples.

The Hughes Unit is a very large prison with almost 3,000 prisoners. Many of these men have long sentences. One of the wives coming has not seen her husband in eight years. Two of the wives are coming from Europe. We need your prayers.

WVIW Marriage Seminar

Pray for the wives to have traveling mercies, no child care problems, no financial issues, and no health concerns. Pray the same for the volunteers. Pray the prison will be receptive to us and that peace will reign during the seminar. Pray for favor with the officers and staff of the prison.

The Hughes Unit in Gatesville, Tx is where Worldwide Voice In the Wilderness  held our very first “Marriage Seminar” in Texas in 1995. Since then we have held about 100 seminars in the prisons of Texas, with close to 2,500 marriages touched.

Worldwide Voice In the Wilderness has received two Texas State Governor's Awards for Marriage Seminar ministry in prisons. They are the primary outreach of WVIW.

Thank you for praying and for giving.

Today, Ashanti is Associate Pastor of Miracle Place Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. You don’t want to miss hearing him.

We look forward to seeing you at “The WVIW-HOPE TO BECOME” Fundraising Banquet.”  Please confirm your attendance by filling out the ONLINE response form by September 16, 2013.  You may also register by email .

Marriage Seminar Update

Posted from: TX, USA

Thank you for you prayer and support for our efforts here at the Jester 3 Unit.

We have had a great time Friday and Saturday.

We have already heard so many inspiring stories of marriages being strengthened and reinforced. Forgiveness and recommitment are at the forefront of our seminar this weekend.

“We are getting healthy for ourselves, our spouses, and our children!”

Several men shared last night how excited they were to see their wives dedicate or recommit their lives to God.

Please keep us in your prayers today as we finish our last day of this seminar. We are so glad to be here and Sunday always means a lot to all of the couples as well as our volunteers.

WVIW Marriage Seminar Volunteers  
 WVIW hosts between 4 and 5 Marriage Seminars in prisons and for prison staff every year. Each marriage seminar is planned very similarly, however, each one turns out very uniquely.  
 This uniqueness comes for a variety of reasons one of the main being our volunteers.  
 Each volunteer comes to  Worldwide Voice In the Wilderness  from a different background and for several different reasons. I think it is safe to say that one attribute that is shared by ALL of our volunteers is that GOD has shown Himself to each volunteer in a HUGE way in their lives.  
 A comment by a dear friend to our ministry this week made a huge impact in summing up what it means to be a volunteer for  @wviw  
 
   There are those whose lives affect all others around them. Quietly touching one heart, who in turn, touches another. Reaching out to ends further than they would ever know.    
 
  Below are a few comments from several Marriage Seminar Volunteers which may explain why they keep coming back to help us host these highly impactful seminars.  

 
 “I told God you Gotta show me how to change and  boy did He show me ." B.G. 
 "My self esteem was down below my toes. I was a very broken person who didn’t think God could love me  but He gave my life meaning and purpose . When everything was falling apart  God didn’t leave me .” B.C.G. 
 “I love Jesus cause he let’s me be me.  I found out I could be a Christian and be myself .” C.N. 
 “I love the Lord for delivering me and for saving me. He revealed himself to me over the years time, after time, after time.  I didn’t want to go the right direction but He boxed me in and didnt let me go .” N.N. 
 “[When I grew Up] God was never spoken of unless it was in a curseword. I was in jail and I began to learn that God loved me and He  wanted  me.  I was so bad and He still wanted me .  So I will spend every day of my life loving him back .” N.A.
