"It was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints." Jude 1:3

Politically Incorrect

Jeremiah 18:12 “ And they said, there is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.”

If any concern breaks my heart and weighs upon my life ‘for such a time as this,’ it is the necessity of meeting every expectation that God’s people will ultimately show themselves as available, willing and spent on such a near and present opportunity.

Overwhelmed and Yet, Hopeful!

Pray With Us

Thank God for protecting, blessing and providing for this ministry. One example: We just received a generous gift of snacks and sodas, privately collected by the staff of Adult Probation and Parole for Chester County, towards summer camps for inner-city children. This is a wonderful proactive investment in the lives of at-risk children.

Pray for the many camps that will happen at Camp at Old Mill this summer and know that we are trusting God for His gracious providing of every need. Pray for safety and for the effectual working of God’s Word in every life.

Pray for our labors at Chester County Prison and for God’s fullest leading in the imminent and demanding call for a family reentry initiative. In brief, pray for the more than 1000 inmates, staff and administration that desire, anticipate and are worthy of the needful awakening of God’s people for the costly and hoped-for-embrace of precious lives reflected within the heart-cries of our own county’s criminal justice system.
