Amidst all the negative news that is broadcasted daily, can you sense a shift in the spiritual? God has always been on the move, always at work within and around us, but can you feel it now more than ever before? I'm reminded of a scene in The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, where the beaver family tells the human siblings, "They say Aslan is on the move - perhaps has already landed." A buzz of excitement is palpable because Aslan symbolizes freedom, victory, and hope--all that they desperately crave. Although it's a fictional story, guess what - Jesus IS freedom, victory, and hope--and he is on the MOVE! Let's set our gaze on him, the overcomer, the victorious one, because battles have come and are coming, but the Lion of Judah goes before and behind us! 

Missionary Spotlight

Cody and Valeria Carter minister through Relentless Prison Ministry in Lansing, KS. Although they do not live in a third world country, Cody has devoted his life to serving the outcasts of society. In 2016, he launched Relentless Prison Ministry to reach and disciple any inmate, regardless of their crime or prison sentence. He ministers through one-on-one discipling, church services, Bible studies and classes. 

Here’s a powerful testimony from the “Reading with Dad” programs Cody started last year. One inmate was looking for a book that would not only let his daughter know how much he loves her, but also teach her about her identity in Christ. He was so excited when he found this book while browsing through the selection of books that were donated.

Prayer Requests:

  • Since restrictions are significantly loosening due to covid, services and classes are now able to be held again. Pray that God would multiply those attending these classes and their knowledge of Him would grow deeper.
  • Pray blessing, strength, and unity over Cody and his wife, Valeria, as they recently were married last year. Pray for God to continue to be glorified through their marriage! 
  • Pray over the Relentless Prison Ministry that it would find favor with the prison tenants and those in high positions. That ultimately, the lost would come to find their hope and freedom in Jesus alone!
