Prison Penpals


Twenty-one months ago Prison Evangelism sent our sixty thousand copies of How to be a Child of God to three hundred and fifty-five prison units in nine states. In this particular printing, we bound in a reply card in the back that asked the reader or recipient to tell us what he thought about our […]

Home of Lost Souls

A famous bank robber was asked, “Why to you rob banks?’ He replied, “ Because thats where the money is.’” The same can be said for prisons and evangelism. That is where the lost souls are. It is a slow process for most of us to really come to a point of surrender and admit […]

Fatherless in America

Father to the Fatherless

Probably one-half of the people under forty in this country (US) grew up in a one parent household and chances are that parent was a women. I have seen how difficult it can be for a single mom to raise children while maintaining a semblance of a home and working full time. It is a […]


Commercial Aspects

God saved me for the purpose of compiling, printing and distributing the book How To Be A Child of God into the prisons of America. In retrospect, he provided all; John Magee, designer, Randy Rogers, illustrator, a large group of proofreaders, my wife Vickie and my daughter Samantha among others who have helped to put […]

Recently, we received a note via our Prison Evangelism Facebook account of a man who had served some time. His note was to encourage us to “keep it up” and continue to send gospel books into prisons. He went on to say that this is the only encouragement some of those in administrative custody, administrative […]

Jesus Crucifixion

Our Co-crucifixion

When we are sincere in our efforts to end our lives of self reliance and independence, we allow ourselves to be adopted into the family of God. This is done by believing in our heart that Jesus is God, that He died […]

When I was a problem and addicted alcoholic, I drank to excess on every occasion. And, once I started the process of binge or session, the end was I often passed out, ended […]

The Threshold of the Mind

Preston and Anabel Gillham wrote a little book called A Study of the Mind. In their opening statement, they state, “Spiritual battles are won or lost at the threshold of the mind, not the mind”. They go on to stay that once you allow a thought to enter your mind, the battle is over because […]

Jail Ministry

Least, Last & Lost

I attend a large affluent church in an affluent or rich neighborhood. Most all of the people who are members drive nice cars, have nice jobs or own their own businesses. The real givers in that group support a very hefty budget and continuing building program. There are countless programs to attract more members of […]


You Gotta Have Heart

For twenty eight years I was a full blown practicing alcoholic and drug addict. I sobered up in Alcoholics Anonymous and through myself into that program as well. That is sort of the way it is with us all or nothing types. We liked to go all in all of our endeavors; all of the […]
