In his own words, Larry Heikkila, Cleveland County site chaplain
We had another wonderful month at the Cleveland County Detention Center (CCDD).
Four inmates came to Christ and eight repented and chose to recommit their lives to Christ this month. The Lord is graciously using us to do His will for these inmates. God provided the inmates. He provided the words we use to introduce them to Christ, and He provided the hope that the inmates receive through us. He also provides the eternal life that we and our new Christian brothers and sisters will all enjoy one day.
Our purpose is to be His plowmen and till His fields for planting; and the eventual harvest. He tells us this in 1 Corinthians 9:10(b), “… Yes, for our sake it was written, because the plowman ought to plow in hope, and the thresher to thresh in hope of sharing the crops.” And the wonderful gift that He gives us is the hope that He gives us when we labor for Him.
I pray that you plow and thresh in hope and I pray that His hope is your energy to prepare and harvest His fields.
I thank the Lord for all that our volunteer chaplains do at CCDC and their other missions.
