There are some blessing that are beyond words in expressing joy and praise, such is the case of Joe & Adrian. SOCPM has clarified that SOCPM will be within all IDOC polices when Adrian begins mentoring Joe.
Joe won’t be released until February 2014 but SOCPM is emphatic that a solid trusting and God honoring relationship be already in place before a Soldier of Christ is mentored upon release.
Joe will be contacting Adrian via mail in the very near future to begin what hopefully will be a lifetime friendship that brings glory to God in all aspects.
Please pray for both Joe and Adrian for God’s guidance.

In the latest edition of ‘The Barbed Wire’ SOCPM’s newsletter, it was mentioned that ‘I like to write but I’m not good at it’ (Scott) and asked for a volunteer to become to take on the role of editor.
It is a joy for SOCPM to say Heidi Malcolm stepped forward saying she like to fill that role. Heidi and her husband or no newbies to SOCPM both have been a blessing behind the scenes in many ways.
Brian developed SOCPM’s fund raising packet and is assisting in a media presentation to use in fundraising to churches and businesses and is taking on the big role of putting SOCPM’s website to a common theme to match the fund raising packet and media presentation. Heidi is currently working on writing a grant letter for SOCPM grants.
SOCPM is looking forward to the next edition of ‘The Barbed Wire’ with November 1st targeted as the publication date.

Bringing the gospel to the prisoners and connecting them to resources to provide holistic discipleship during and after incarceration
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV)
To see prisoners and former prisoners with renewed hearts and minds glorifying God and sharing Christ with others.
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.  Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:1-2 ESV)
