Locking arms (and hammers) in ministry

27 Jun

This weekend (June 29th and 30th) I will be joining several bible & toolsmen from OBC heading down to southeastern Nebraska as part of a prison ministry opportunity. The family in need are parents of a prisoner we have been in contact through the Omaha Correctional Center. The father of this prisoner recently had a stroke and is unable to do the repair work needed for his home bathroom. They are also in need of a shower instead of their current tub because of his lack of mobility.

Praise the Lord for he has assembled a team of skilled workers and go-fers like myself to do His work. The Lord willing this weekend we will be replacing the rotten flooring, leaking plumbing, and their tub with a shower stall assembly. We will basically be remodeling their bathroom. The team will be heading down on Friday afternoon to re-examine the plumbing needs and do some cleaning of the basement. Beginning bright and early Saturday morning we will be doing everything necessary to rebuild the bathroom for this family.

I thank God for the leadership of OBC who provide the way for those who desire to serve Christ in ministry. Serving Christ should be the desire of every believer in Jesus Christ and OBC is obedient to the Lord’s calling for believers to disciple others. If you would like to participate in this ministry endeavor or any future prison ministry opportunities please contact me through this blog site or via my email which I will leave at the bottom of this posting. There is definitely a place for you.
