He Found Christ While Locked Away in Segregation

December 23, 2019

A few days ago we received a letter from a prisoner in Oklahoma. Here is part of his story:


I am in segregation because the gang I was a part of jumped me and burned my tattoos off of me. During this time in segregation, the chaplain was nice enough to bring me a copy of your book “An Anchor for the Soul.”

After reading the book, I decided to accept Christ Jesus as my Savior. I am no longer lost or spiritually dead.

I thank you for writing this book! I am really trying to turn my life around and live the right way. God bless you for what you have done and are still doing.

If you think about what this man endured (having his tattoos burned off), that’s horrendous. It’s definitely not easy to be in segregation, but out of bad came something good: a chaplain who gave him a copy of “An Anchor for the Soul.”

We don’t know the chaplain or how he came to have copies of Anchor, but God knows. We’re happy to be one link in the chain God used to draw this prisoner to Jesus. Would you pray with us that he will continue to grow in his faith?

If you’d like to help us donate more copies of Anchor (we’ve given away over 800,000 copies), just go to this page and you can donate online. Or you can mail your gift to:

Thank you for your love, your prayers, and your support!
