    August Newsletter Volume 3 Issue 8

    Is it just me or has this summer gone by incredibly fast? I know for those of you on the other side of the wall, you don’t mind the days, weeks, and months flying by! Inspiration Ministries is ready to head into fall with some exciting plans and lots on the schedule and we hope that you will be in prayer with us so that through the busyness of it all, God is glorified and that it is Kingdom work that is on our minds. Coming up in just a few weeks here in Auburn we are celebrating

    July Newsletter Volume 3 Issue 7

    I have to admit, Brethren, I was a mess as I was looking at Kirsten, my beautiful bride to be, on the 21st of June. For 30 months I have seen the hand of God move upon my life and Inspiration Ministries to the praise of His glory. The Lord has started and accomplished things in and through me that I would have never thought possible except for the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. And on my wedding day I cried tears of joy with a great sense of humility, seeing the faithfulness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

    June Newsletter Volume 3 Issue 6

    As God was constructing the vision for Inspiration Ministries, one of the key factors was that I was in prison when He starting building it. There was no, “When I get out, I am going to do this” attitude or a “wait until the world gets a load of me” mentality. It was very humbling to be chosen for service by God, and He forced me to look at the men around me in the dorms, classrooms, and rec yards to see my mission field. As weird as it might sound, I have always appreciated my five year bid because it gave me a chance to understand what ministry looks and feels like because behind those walls, as many of you know, it is a 24/7 gig. There are no shortages to share Christ, and there are always lessons to learn through the process. The fact that God is willing to use ordinary people like prison inmates to minister the Gospel of Christ should inspire us every day we have the opportunity to open our eyes.

    The Lord made no mistake when He placed us in downtown Auburn. I can walk out our front doors, stand on 7th street, and see the courthouse, police station, county jail, and probation office. Wow! There was a time in my life when I wouldn’t be very comfortable with that, but God has seen fit to place Inspiration Ministries close to those we are trying to reach. Thank you, Jesus!

    April Newsletter Volume 3 Issue 4

    “Up from the grave He arose” I belted out this morning at Auburn’s annual men’s Lenten breakfast. This is a time of fellowship and worship with men from every denomination to honor Jesus Christ…His person, His sacrifice, and His resurrection. Hallelujah!
