A Matter of Perspective

Yesterday a volunteer told us about a conversation he had with an inmate. The inmate was sharing his passion for Jesus Christ and his personal salvation testimony. He'd surrendered his life to Lord while in prison and was grateful for His redeeming power in the midst of his circumstances.

"I've come to see that I wasn't arrested.
I was rescued."

"For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost."
Luke 19:10

That's so wonderful that many people are bringing more and more un-believers...if that's a word...to Christ.

Praise the Lord almighty! God can work in any circumstance, can't He?!

I was also wondering where you get your beautiful clothes for the girls? My mom and I realized how feminine and modest they were!! I also want to let you know that all eight of you girls inspire me on in my femininity...it's not always easy in this culture, but when I get on your blog and see pictures of you and I am ENCOURAGED and STRENGTHENED!!!

Blessings to you,
Jenna
