Letter from the Editor

We have been so blessed to experience some incredible moments here at The Cupbearer Café this month, and Inspiration Ministries has made strides in our effort to start the jail ministry here in DeKalb County. All glory goes to God, our Father, the Author and Finisher of our faith, because He is so worthy to be praised. We appreciate your prayers as this faith journey continues each month. We pray that you experience the faithfulness of God with us as He continues to build this ministry from the ground up.

I recently had an interesting experience when we hosted a band, Redemption Calling. During intermission I found myself in front of the microphone and felt lead to sing a song titled He Knows My Name. I followed with the song The Reason Why We Sing. It was the first time I have sang in a long time. In fact, I think it was my first time singing in front of people since I was on the praise team at Liberty CI last year.

   I am a worshipper; I love to sing, jump, and dance to honor Christ. I learned how to be a true worshipper while incarcerated, and I haven’t forgotten. I learned those songs behind the walls, and I carry them and the love of Christ in my heart everyday. Worshipping with song can be overwhelming at times because it helps me realize the love of God that He has so graciously poured on my life. I encourage you to be a true worshipper of the living God in whatever way the Holy Spirit leads you. Worship the Lord Jesus Christ in prayer, song, or the reading of your Word, but most importantly worship Him by letting the Christ inside you reign supreme as an ambassador of His love, grace, and mercy.

      During my stay at Liberty, I became pen pals with Dan Evans, a brother in Tallahassee who did some time a few years prior. Dan and I shared what the Lord was doing in our hearts for the last eight months of my sentence. Through his faithfulness to the call of his life, Dan and I have now become friends and fellow workmen in the cause for Christ. I am proud to publish Because He Lives for our July newsletter. Our Ambassadors for Christ in Chains have written some pieces to inspire your heart, and we are thrilled to include our first Spanish article. Find a brother or sister in which to share the newsletter.

      Inspiration Ministries is committed to unifying the body of Christ, and we are excited about the move of the Holy Spirit inside and outside the prison walls.  We need each other to fulfill the call of God to spread the Gospel to all nations.

Join us in being inspired as ever in Jesus name,

Andrew L. Foster
