A Heartfelt Letter from the “Inside”

Hello Family,


I recently received a heartfelt letter from one of the incarcerated men we minister to. His name is Frederick Reed and he has a burden for the Church, especially our youth, to know that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.

He writes from inside a Texas prison to encourage us to believe the truth of who we are in Christ, to resist the devil and his lies, and hold fast to God amidst our troubles. 

Take a moment to read Frederick’s message; I think you will be uplifted. Please feel free to send the link of this newsletter to anyone you think could use a reminder of who they are in Christ!

Taking a look back…

We are hard at work on another video series for you, so in the meantime, let’s take a look back at our very first, “Already In White” feature. Field Minister and Graduate of TUMI, Jackie Welch, shares how God turned his life around after running from his calling for years. Your generous support makes stories like his possible. Thank you!
