Test Piloting New Material for Alpha

Jean and I are privileged to be part of a team evaluating the Alpha 12-step program. We are implementing it at Woodman State Jail. It is so encouraging to see the results of both Alpha and Celebrate Recovery’s; Jesus is our deliverer and He sets captives free.

One of our participants, Nancy, had been in prison several times because of addiction issues. She was released from Woodman three days before Christmas. Nancy and her father, who is a District Attorney for the State of Texas, drove from Austin to Temple Bible’s Celebrate Recovery to join us in January. She introduced us to her father because he personally wanted to thank us.

Nancy sent the following email:

I’d like to let the women at Woodman know I am still clean and sober. It will give them hope knowing that someone like me can make it! I am also still living for God. I attend CR and a weekly Bible study. God is definitely my deliverer. I am building on a solid foundation. Thank you Terry, Jean and Jake for reaching me. God is working miracles in my life daily.

Opportunity to Make a Difference

God is multiplying our discipleship programs in astonishing proportions! Please pray that He will continue to raise up volunteers and donors to help us meet the needs of these great opportunities.

Thank YOU for Your Support

We couldn’t do what we do without YOU! Thank you for helping us minister to the people Jesus is reaching in the prisons!
