“Are You Coming Back?”

Recently I was speaking at a local church regarding the needs we have for Bible study leaders in lock-up facilities in their area. While there I met a member of the Gideons, who thought they could be of help. They graciously decided to donate Bibles to the boys at a particular facility north of Boston. A few weeks ago I met two representatives from the Gideons and together, we distributed Bibles to 16 teenage boys at a Department of Youth Services facility.

The Assistant Director of the facility gave us all the time we wanted to share from God’s Word to the boys. We presented the Gospel of Jesus Christ and invited the young men to consider it for themselves. We had a time of prayer and as we were about to leave one of the boys asked, “Are you guys coming back next week?”

Sadly, our answer was, “No.” The facility is so far away from the three of us that none of us can make a commitment to do the study ourselves. Our ministry that day was a one-time deal. In the meantime I told the boys that I am committed to finding people who will lead them in a Bible study each week, and I asked them to pray with me that God would bring people to them to do this.

It is the desire of their hearts to hear God’s Message. Knowing that the heart of God is to give them His Message, I am convinced He will make a way. These are young men who are hungry for the Word and in desperate need of someone to lead them and teach them God’s Truth. They are even asking for it themselves! They may be “criminals,” but mostly they are sinners, like I was, in need of the Savior.

Please join me, and these boys, in prayer for a Bible study of their own.
