Prison Ministry Making a Difference
On October 25, 2013 the Good News Jail and Prison Ministry had a fund raising
banquet at the Parkside Church in
Bainbridge, Connecticut. The program was a fund raiser for the
ministry to support the teaching of Jesus Christ. The purpose of the ministry program is for those who have been incarcerated to start a new life with God as a central theme.
Prison minister and author Marty Angelo was the keynote speaker at the
Angelo had been one of those in the 60’s and 70’s that veered off the beaten path and was involved with fast life of drugs, rock music and of course women.
He was arrested for possession of cocaine. Prior to his court date he actually found Jesus. The judge sentenced him to a serve his time in the prison ministry while incarcerated.
Angelo talked about his experiences, but what is more to the point are testimonials of those who he helped and those who turned their lives around by
finding God and finding the Good News through Jesus Christ.
An example of this:
Dear Marty, I read your book, “Once Life Matters” and to tell you the truth Marty, it brought
tears to my eyes. I feel you can help me out on some questions that I cannot fgure out by
myself. To be honest with you Marty, my question is - I have absolutely no idea what the Lord
has planned for me. I am only 22 years old, I have turned to the Lord because of your book,
and I am ready for what He has for me. He wants me to live my life now, and live it
right! I really loved your book. - JG
