Sometimes life brings unexpected setbacks and perplexing questions. As the Apostle Paul said, “We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair” (2 Corinthians 4:8, ESV).
I can relate to Paul’s feelings in at least a small way as I consider the adventure and challenges of working in prison ministry. May each of us make his testimony our own—”We are always of good courage” (5:6a).
Loaves & Fishes issue 24 has been waiting to be printed for several months now. As it stands, total copies for the next printing would be 108,000, and the printing will cost $16,000. This number includes 5,000 extra copies to distribute between printings.
Today we have $10,000 on hand, so once we have $9,000 more, we can order the books.
God has answered our prayers for a part-time assistant at our main office! Jimmy Weaver is training to help manage incoming prisoner mail and pack orders. He is a minister at Allegheny Valley Mennonite Church here in the area, and we look forward to bringing awareness of this ministry to new circles of friends with Jimmy’s help.
If you feel led to help financially, you can give online or send your gift in the mail. May God be glorified and His priorities honored.
