2 Peter 3:b
"With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like a day."
I think of this verse as I try to remember where the year went. I hear it often said that "the older I get the faster time goes." Any more I feel the same way. It seems like 2018 just got under way a couple weeks ago, but as I write this there are only a couple weeks left. It is also often said that "time flies when you are having fun." If this is true, it has been a good year filled with fun. In addition, it has been a year filled with challenges and disappointments, but also a year filled with many blessings. The Lord continues to give Kingdom Boundaries the opportunity to witness to men prior to their release from prison and after they are released. With the addition of Pastor Mark, we were able to offer two additional Bible studies during the week to work around different work and treatment schedules of the residents. This allows more one on one time with the men.
Kingdom Boundaries has been blessed by those that support this ministry. We have continued to receive clothing donations that keeps Rhonda busy in "Rhonda Mart." We have added a car program that helps men purchase a car when they have little or no credit. Through this program we were able to supply 6 men with vehicles. We have also been able to substantially reduce our debt. Because of this, we were able to purchase the house adjacent to ''The Master's House'' when it came available this fall. With the addition of "The Holy Spirit's Inn'', we can offer addition housing to men and lengthen their time that they can stay involved with Kingdom Boundaries.
Kingdom Boundaries has been also contemplating a program for women. There is an existing women's program with a house that has come up for sale. We are currently looking into the feasibility of expanding in this direction. This would though require more staff and additional debt.
Like I said, it has been a great year and I would like to say a big thank you to all that have supported Kingdom Boundaries during this past year with your prayers, words of encouragement, and with your financial support.
Please continue to pray for the men, board, and staff of Kingdom Boundaries. Lastly, please consider a year end financial gift, and/or continued financial support for the coming year. These are essential as we move forward in 2019 as we minister to those that God has not forgotten. Please join us in this ministry.
