Last night, our worship team from church sang at a prison for men between the ages of 18-25. The last prison at which we sang was for boys, 13-18. What a difference! The men there, however, responded to the worship like nothing I have ever seen. God is truly the center of a few of those men’s lives, especially one named Joel. He is going to go into the ministry in January (he gets out in December), and I know that God is going to use him to do mighty things! The prison is rough, and very violent–from what the chaplain told us. But it was so humbling to be there! Lots of spiritual warfare, but the Lord protected us all.
This is week two of housesitting–this time in Orange County. I’m taking care of two cats, ages 14 and 15. Next week is easy–PLANTS. 🙂
Hopefully, I will have a “day off” this week–Mindi and I are talking about going to the mountains one morning this week, to get away from it all. We’ll see if my schedule will allow such an excursion. 🙂
