TO: Supporters of the CRUSADE FOR CHRIST and it's Prison Ministry.
SUBJECT: Annual Report on CRUSADE FOR CHRIST PRISON MINISTRY - 1999.
Dear Christian Friend:
This has been a momentous, and sometimes frustrating year in the Prison Ministry. it was made possible by your prayers, friendship, and financial support. I thank God, and you and for sticking by this ministry so faithfully. It has kept me on the "firing line," when many have said: "You have done enough, slow down!" (I will be 84 at midnight tonight) and pray that God will keep me active until the day He calls me home.
When a prison inmate contacts me regarding the Prison ministry I tell them this: "welcome to the CRUSADE FOR CHRIST PRISON MINISTRY FAMILY. We are an 'elite group of CALLED OUT, Christian Israelite believers, who operate under the sole leadership of King Jesus'. We will expect you to act in such a manner as not to bring discredit to His name, or His Kingdom Movement. This means: "What you do, shouts so loud we can't hear what you say!" Though you are saved by His GRACE ALONE, you prove your love for the King by your OBEDIENCE and GOOD WORKS, (James 2:17).
I emphasize the importance of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and OBEDIENCE. Many men have responded in a positive manner. Most of them have. come out of Judeo-Christian churches, and for the first time are seeing the TRUTH in God's Word, and are responding to it.
While we do not have as many men in the Prison Ministry as some groups, all are active participants who have corresponded with me during the last three months.
During 1999, 1,290 books with an estimated value of $9,030 were sent FREE to these men. (Some respond by sending stamps from time to time). With an average postage of $1.13 per book, postage and handling adds another $1,870.00 for a total expense of about $10,900.00. According to the I.R.S. none of this is deductible, as they do not consider us as a "legitimate religion".
Following is a list by State, with the number of prisons ministered to, and the number of prisoners. Keep in mind that you have made this possible.
Summary by State State Number of Prisons Number of Prisoners Alabama 4 4 Arizona 3 3 Arkansas 3 5 California 9 12 Colorado 1 2 Florida 5 8 Georgia 1 1 Illinois 5 8 Indiana 2 3 Kansas 4 8 Louisiana 2 2 Maryland 2 2 Michigan 6 11 Minnesota 1 2 Missouri 2 2 New Jersey 2 4 Ohio 3 6 Oklahoma 3 3 Pennsylvania 2 4 South Dakota 1 2 Tennessee 2 3 Texas 34 95 TOTALS 99 183
As the "storm of the Ages," gets set to roll in, REMEMBER that our God is still in charge of things and that a Day of Reckoning is coming (see PS. 2:1-5). So as the FEAR and CONFUSION in the world gets worse and worse, Jesus said, (Luke 21:28), this is an indication that our REDEMPTION is close at hand. MARANATHA!
Wishing you the Father's best for 2000, I remain, Your Brother and Servant in the King's business,
