An Update from Chains for Christ Ministries

Dear Friends,

Just wanted to let you all know that after much generous support, effort, and help of ministry partners, we have finally been able to send David 40 study Bibles in a special soft cover edition—20 in English and 20 in Spanish. We have also been able to send 40 Fundamentals of the Faith material—20 in English and 20 in Spanish. David and the chaplain at Corcoran will be able to use both the Bibles and the FOF books to more adequately minister to the prisoners. These materials will be a real blessing and help.

If you are interested, below are other ways you can encourage and help minister to David and his fellow inmates:

-- Pray! Continue to pray for David, the Chains for Christ ministry—both at Corcoran and for those of us on the “other side”, the salvation of the other prisoners, strength and faithfulness for all involved, etc.

-- Leave comments on this blog. All comments are mailed to him.

-- Drop him an email at Emails will also be sent to him.

-- Write him a letter—it’s a real encouragement for him to hear from all of us (see above for the address)

-- Donate money to help with future ministry needs: newsletters, care packages, ministry materials, etc., etc. (drop us an email at for more info)

Thank you for your encouragement and faithfulness. If you have any questions, comments, for either David or any of the Chains for Christ ministry partners, please feel free to drop us an email.

God bless you,

Chains for Christ Ministries
