Angola Update by Donal Chance

The prisoners in Louisiana State Penitentiary that are going through the School of Christ International send their thanks and love to the staff and President Darrell Turner for providing them with these materials. It is truly a blessing and a life changing opportunity for them.

Warden Burl Cain called us to his office 3 months ago and learned of our missions work, home and abroad. He gave us one of the greatest assignments of our ministry. He asked us to begin a mentoring program for the 30 plus prison pastors in Angola. His mission was for us to train them in such a way that we make missionaries out of them after going through the Power of Preaching and School of Christ materials. What a humbling assignment! He also gave us the authority to plant Bible Tabernacle and New Life Ministries in the prison. At present, 2 pastors are going through the school to do just that.

I personally would like to thank the School of Christ office and Sister Brenda Turnage for producing the booklet on the Power of Preaching. We are presently able to put this booklet in the hands of the prison pastors and their staff. It has proven to be very effective. To God be the glory!

We are planning to have the graduation of 20 inmates in the near future. Please keep Angola in your prayers. They may be locked up, but they will never be locked out from what God has in store.
