Spring Report 2018
2018 marks the 10th year of RI Men of Hope providing classes in the RI State Penitentiary. We currently have seven men from our organization facilitating classes in minimum, medium, and maximum facilities. To date we’ve reached over 1236 men. Praise God for He is Good !!!
Two of the main classes that we have offered since the beginning are “Quest for Manhood” and “10 Key Moves for Winning at Work and Home”. At the end of each class, inmates have to fill out either a Quest Manhood Report or 10 Key Moves for Winning at Work and Home. The Quest Manhood Report asks the inmates how they are going to change in light of what they learned and the 10 Key Move for Winning at Work and Home asks the inmates to consider what moves will take them to the next level of competency and satisfaction in these areas.
Here are some of the responses that the men have turned in recently:
During a conflict, I need to listen more and speak less and when I do speak not to criticize when explaining my concerns.
Need to put God first above everything else by practicing this it will cause me to be more like Christ and bring Him into the situation and all relationships will have less turmoil.
I need to learn my wife’s love language in order to lead a happy and fulfilled life together.
I must change my belief of what a good life is or was to faith, hope and love.
Always strive to be a positive influence on the job.
These are just a fraction of the response that we see at the end of each class. The inmates who are taking these classes are living out these responses inside the prison and hoping to continue once they get out.
We are so grateful for your prayers and offerings to our ministry. Please continue to pray for health and well-being of the leaders as we serve the Lord this way.
Hebrews 10:24-25 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give us meeting together as some in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another- and all of the more you see the day approaching.
On a personal note, we were all saddened to hear that Billy Graham has passed away at the age of 99, a true preacher and evangelist that God used mightily. His favorite saying was “God loves you.” We tell the inmates this same thing as we continue to serve God and love each of these men because God loved us first!
