Dick Bodwell (Good News Jail and Prison Ministry board member) and Marty Angelo

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 event. 

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
