I am praying about starting a ministry in the Parramore district. God has been drawing me to this area for sometime now. Please pray that He shows me how and what to do. More details to come.

|Boxes of books headed for the jail|
These books were weeded through and only the biblically sound material made the final cut, putting us at a final of over 1,000 books.
I am very grateful for the people and ministries who donated. I would like to thank Desiring God, Ligonier, Stand To reason, Charles Lieter, Tony Miano, Prison Book Project, and Scott Smith for their generous donations.
Though we recieved all these books we are still in need of bibles (any size or translation) and study helps such as, lexicons, concordances, commentaries, theologies, dictionaries, ect.
We could also use christian movies for movie night, sermons, and teachings either DVD or VHS.
If God puts it on your heart to donate materials or money to by materials please contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Most of us know or at have at least met someone with tattoos. And I would venture to say that we have, wether knowingly or not, met someone with the popular Life/Death ambigram tattoo.
An ambigram is an image that looks like one word but is actually made up of multiple words which are revealed by rotating the image. To the left is the one tatto from both angles. Turn your screen (or head) upside down and you'll see them change.
This tattoo is one of my favorite tattoos and fun way to swing into the things of God. The conversation usually goes like this,
"Hey I noticed your tattoo. Do you know where it originates from?" Most of the time they will tell you about some musician they saw it on. To which I respond, "It actually originates from the bible." This usually peaks there interest. I then quote Romans 6:23 and expound on each point of the verse.
"for the wages of sin is death" Romans 6:23a
Death is the payment for sin. Sin is breaking Gods law the 10 commandments. Have you kept the ten commandment? Have you ever lied, stolen, used Gods name in vain? If you have you have earned death and the punishment of Hell.
"But the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord" Romans 6:23b
But God, who is rich in mercy, made a way by sending His only Son who lived the perfect life we could not live and Died the death we should have Died satisfying the Justice of God on our behalf. And if we Turn away from sin and trust in Jesus Christ God will grant us everlasting life with Him in Heaven.
Obviously this is just to give you an idea of what I do so add or take away whatever. Now go out and find someone with this tattoo and give it a try and leave a comment about your experience.
