Incarcerated Teen Sharing Jesus

One evening at the facility for incarcerated teens,  a new boy walked into my Bible study. He was carrying papers and explained they were from a Bible study he’d been doing.

I recognized the papers as those I had written myself and had given out as homework to the teens in another unit.  Curious, I asked “Where did you get these?”

He explained,  “I just transferred from Oakwood 3.   A guy named Mario was giving them out.  He was teaching me about the Bible and asked the guard to make copies of his own Bible study.”

I smiled.  I know Mario. He came to Christ a few months ago and has made great strides in his new faith.  The Lord has given him such peace and joy that he’s been sharing the Good News with others ever since.  Now he’s using my materials to help the others grow.

How I praise God for Mario and the others like him!

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.
