We Care Ministries, Atmore, Alabama
Dave & Mary Landis Family
Prison ministry has many forms. sometimes it looks like leading a chapel service or spending an hour or two teaching a class on the subject of peacekeeping or leadership. It may look like walking around on an exercise yard visiting with an inmate who needs someone to talk to or spending time in a hot, muggy dorm on a rainy day praying with a young man who is struggling.
Our mission, though, remains constant. We are following the commend of Christ to "go...make disciples...baptize...and teach" men and women behind bars. and yet as we do that, we also realize that the wheat and tares are both growing together until the Harvester comes to gather the wheat (Matthew 13:24-30). As we remain faithful to our commission, we are trusting that God in His divine wisdom is working out His plan. It's really a strategy that cannot fail. - David R. Landis, Don Metzler
