Yes, Dec 13th, 2012 will prove to be an important day…possibly an extensively Impactful day.
On that day, a multiple repeat offender will be released out of jail into the community. He must grasp this opportunity, he must make difficult decisions to change his life on this very day. He will need to have made those decisions before this day comes.
STA will be there to escort him out at 5:00am – We will take this day to help him plant his feet on the ground and continue his “Straight Ahead” journey to “Taking back His Life”. We first met him when we escorted him out of jail this last June. He has been incarcerated over 18 times. By that, You may have already judged him. Actually, he is a great guy. Our job is to get him to see that he is, see his strengths and believe in himself. It is a process and not a pleasant one.
Currently, i am going to the jail every two days to meet with him and work to Impact his soul. Help Jesus to make a change in this Lost Sheep of His. It is a lot of work. It entails and encompasses many issues, behaviors and lifestyles which we address. This inmate is new in his study and belief in Jesus and His Father. We are working on ugly and painful realities, which he must address before he gets out of jail. He is a babe in the truth as they say. My Hope and Prayer is that he is not simply a Jailhouse Christian.
When he is released out into the community it is going to be a rough road for him. Very rough.
Yes, he has somewhere he can go stay….BUT, IF he goes there, he will most likely end up back in jail. It will be one of STA’s goals to locate another place on this very day, which is conducive to him and safer.
STA, will have this one day on Dec. 13th to make a strong Impact on this Lost Sheep of Jesus’. We will take as long as needed on this day, even if it becomes 24 hours. If we do not make the impact required, he could end up back in jail…..except….if he goes back again….this time he will end up going to prison for a very long time.
STA believes in this man. First, because Jesus has placed this man to us for assistance. He is smart, talented, and has a sense of humor. He has a wife (who also needs Jesus’ guidance) AND he has 3 children. We believe Jesus wants this one. So it is exactly our job to do what Jesus wants and do whatever it takes to help him. To do whatever we can. And we will.
Jesus has been given a Life or Death job to do by His Father in Heaven. One with great responsibility, one of Life….. OR one of Death in darkness. Jesus in turn, has given STA the job to help this inmate become what He wants him to be.
STA is in desperate need of funds to do this valuable work.
