Clarence Davis calls on The Journey to send Bibles into an Oklahoma prison
A Call To Give
Last Sunday, July 7th 2019, Clarence Davis shared with our church during “Family Time” that his son who is currently in prison wants to share the Good News of Jesus with other inmates, and as part of that he needs Bibles. So we took up a special offering and received around $650! This, along with some other funds from Journey will buy about 65 Bibles. They’ve requested the Celebrate Recovery Study Bibles, as they will help these men and women to deal with their “hurts, habits, and hangups” as they are able to work through the CR curriculum. If you’d still like to give to this cause, click here.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated on Sunday to help Clarence Davis buy Celebrate Recovery Study Bibles for his son who is ministering to others while in prison. What a beautiful testimony! May God bless these Bibles, and all those that use them. Watch this video below to hear what Clarence had to say about all of this!
In an effort to give encouragement, remain connected, and engage and honor the missionaries The Journey partners with, we want to be a church that sends well. Being sent well is critical to effective ministry on the field, and it begins here with us. Missionary care involves everyone.
The good news is for everyone, that much is obvious from Luke-Acts, but as Chris W. Dial says, it’s not obvious to everyone. Then and now we need to remember that the Holy Spirit was poured out on “all flesh” and that means all nations and all people have access to the good news of the Lord of Creation dying for us, rising, reigning and pouring out the Spirit on all people who want to receive.

Greg Taylor co-wrote a book with Anne-Geri’ Fann about How to Get Ready for Short Term Missions. As many are preparing for short term summer trips, we strongly encourage you to order Greg’s and Anne-Geri’s book, and check out this Short Term Missions Packing List. This is worth the price of the book, and we’re offering this packing list free here at The Journey.
