Texas has just passed Califonia
to become the number one penal colony in the United States. We
actually have more people in jail per capita than Russia. It boggles
the mind how a state with less people in it than live in Los Angeles
County can have more criminals than the entire state of California.
But that's the way it is in Texas and we want to help change it!
The "Walls" in Huntsville is where most men coming out of prison
are released... the sad part is far too many have no one
waiting for them when they come out.
Revival is Real!
The revival inside is real...
more than 900 inmates were baptized in the Bexar County Jail this
year alone. Thanks to the dedicated volunteer Chaplains like Charles
S. Labatt who take the time to share JESUS with men and women
who are in desperate need of good role models and Christ like
mentoring! It isn't just talk to men like Charlie... it's a way
WORD reaching out behind the walls.
Thanks to organizations like
Prison Fellowship International, Bill Glass Ministries, Mike Barber
Ministries and the Gideons... there are BIBLES for these hungry
men to digest... HIS WORD changes lives.
enough to just be there!
Sometimes it is nothing more
than being there that makes the difference. Most of the men and
women in jail and prison can deal with violence, pain and even
fear... but love, pure CHRIST like love is something they can't
resist. Our volunteers know that some times the best thing you
can say has nothing to do with words.
the Right Choices!
MorningStar Ranch wants to help these men
and women learn how to feed the right SPIRIT within them. We want
to make a difference. We want to help these children of GOD stay
out of Jail and Prison and not become repeat offenders!
