We last visited Illinois River CC on a Thursday night in September of 2013. We only saw 12 inmates that evening (11 players and 1 umpire). We were scuffling on the field in our second year as a prison ministry softball team but we managed to put up over 30 runs in the first game. We were able to take time to pray with the guys we visited and we even enjoyed some Chinese food on the way home! Four years later we still talk about that night!
Tomorrow, we finally are getting the opportunity to go back and actually spend the day at Illinois River CC in Canton, IL.
Please keep our team in prayer on Saturday. Darrell Pine will be sharing his testimony and the Gospel during the morning session. Afterwards we are actually going to have a cookout with the men out on the field in between games. During the afternoon session, Jeremy Test will be sharing his testimony and Brent Gerber will be sharing the Gospel.
This is our shortest trip of the year but please pray for traveling mercies!
I am looking forward to writing the story of how God works on Saturday!
Thank you for your continued prayer support of this ministry!
