Ministry Updates

August 2017 Ministry Update

Dear Fellow Laborers in Christ,

Here is our monthly update with some of our activities.

The Orlando Outreach is a blessing to us each and every Saturday. We recognized a need with these men when they are released from prison. They need transportation to get around. We have been accepting bicycles to take to them. We have taken four bikes so far and we have one outside to take down this week. Two other individuals have promised more donations of another four coming soon.

We have presented our ministry to some churches locally. Praying that God moves upon them to support us regularly.

We are working on a new project at our county jail. It is a newsletter for the facility called Fully Pardoned. It will feature short poems, drawings, etc… contributed by the inmates. Hopefully, our first edition will be ready for distribution in September. Please pray that souls will be saved because of our efforts.

We are also working on a new tract called Finally Free. We have the first draft of it but we will be making some changes before we will be ready to send it to the printer.  

Of course, requests for Bibles and tracts continue to come in. We received a request for tracts to go to the Mt. Olive Correctional Complex in Mt. Olive, W. VA. It is the male maximum security prison for the state of W. VA. We sent them a Priority Mail box and the Postal clerk said, “It weighs 14 lbs!” I replied, “I must be getting better at packing them!”

We broadcast on the following radio stations: every Sunday morning on KIOU 1480 AM/FM Shreveport, LA at 10:45 a.m. ‘til 11:00 a.m. and on WDZY AM/FM 1290 Richmond, VA every Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. ‘til 1:45 p.m. and on WYYC AM/FM 1250 every Thursday 12:30 ‘til 12: 45 p.m. We need individuals or churches to come along side of us to sponsor these programs. If you’d like to sponsor one of our broadcasts, please contact us, we would love to have your support.   

If you have any prayer requests please let us know, so until next time.  

May God richly bless you and yours.

 

All for His glory,

Chaplain Rick & Lynne Vincent

 

 

 

 

 

Bicycles and Radio?- An Update from Chaplain Rick

Our ministry for the men in Orlando has now expanded into a clothing, men's toiletries, bicycles and bicycle locks ministry!

If you are like most folks, you are probably wondering what do they need bicycles for? The answer will make sense to you once you realize that their driver's license probably expired while they were in prison. They do not have a car. When they are first released the most important thing for them to do is secure housing. Most do not leave prison with a lot of money so public transportation is a luxury to them.  A bicycle fills a lot of immediate needs. To date we have been able to give out 3 bicycles and I'm supposed to pick up another one tomorrow and I already have a request for it!

We do a radio program that airs in Shreveport, LA and Richmond, VA. The program airs on AM and FM stations. The stations are part of the Wilkins Radio Network. Today the radio station contacted me offering me the rest of June and July for free and then $145.00 a month for their station in York, PA, covering Harrisburg, York, Lancaster and surrounding areas, including a portion of Maryland. The market covers 1.1 million people in the primary signal area. It would also air on their AM and FM stations. That is getting the Gospel out to all those people at a great price. If you could sponsor a month or 6 months or a year, think of the folks that might be reached with the Gospel. I have to give them an answer asap. Please will you take that step of faith and answer God's call?  Let me know if you will donate to this. 

Many blessings to all of you,

Chaplain Rick & Lynne Vincent
