A Kingdom Boundaries Testimonial
Kingdom Boundaries is an essential part of my recovery and reentry into society. The director Pastor Jeff, his wife Rhonda, board members, as well as my fellow residents have and continue to walk alongside me during my transition. They do this by providing me with friendship, support, and rides to appointments, work, as well as shopping. Having help for these seemingly small things is a huge blessing to me.
I am not from Sioux Falls originally, and to be in an unfamiliar environment with no family or friends nearby was a concerning prospect when I got out. I didn't know how I was going to do so far from home and my family. Kingdom Boundaries has been a massive help in this respect, because they are my family here locally. I really am grateful for the acceptance and love I have been shown.
I truly appreciate all that Kingdom Boundaries has provided for me. This includes Christian fellowship, friendships, and a safe place where I feel like I belong. The staff and volunteers truly are the hands and feet of Jesus. They are self-sacrificing, patient, and loving. I shudder at the thought of being anywhere else. It is so difficult to go from being institutionalized from 10 years of incarceration to functioning in society as a normal citizen. Kingdom Boundaries has given me hope and brought me peace during my transition.
At the close of another year, I pray that Kingdom Boundaries Prison Aftercare will continue to walk alongside and be a blessing to others, as it has to me.

I want to thank God for the blessings that I get from Him and my friend William.  William was living here at Kingdom Boundaries. He told me about the program at KBPA, and Pastor Jeff and Rhonda. They are great people. At the time I had no place to live, so my friend William talked to Pastor Jeff about my situation.
     With the grace of God, Jeff had a spot for me and told me that I could live here until I found a place in Miami, Florida. I want to move to Miami because that is where my family lives.
     I want to say that I am so grateful for God and Kingdom Boundaries. They do not forget about us and help us no matter what our situation is. They provide shelter, food, and clothing, but the most important thing is we are blessed from God and Kingdom Boundaries. They provide Monday and Wednesday Bible study and on Friday evenings there is a prayer meeting. I'm so thankful because I have a place to stay, food to eat, and a roof over my head.
     They are here to help us in everything that we are going through. They help us become closer to the Lord in our lives, to become a better person and find a job. They are here for anything we need in our lives.  I want to say I'm so grateful for Kingdom Boundaries for helping me and providing for what I need.  
     Thank you, God, Pastor Jeff and Rhonda.

Andres is a US citizen but was born in Columbia, South America and has dual citizenship.  He has demonstrated by his words and by his actions that he is a born-again Christian.  He was raised in a Christian environment, lost his way and found his way back during his prison stay a MDSP Springfield.  He will surely be missed when he moves on to Miami, Florida.

Nowhere but down, but wait....     
I have made a lot of huge mistakes in my life and I was going nowhere but down. Like many men about to be released from prison, I had no real clue what I was going to do. There wasn't an ounce of hope left in me to get my life on-track.
That is when KBPA graciously accepted me into their program and gave me a new lease on life. Everybody here is filled with a joy that I cannot explain except to say that they have found Jesus and brought Him into their lives.
This place is truly filled with a group of sober people who honestly want to help you find Jesus and live your life the way God intended. They have walked the same path you have walked and came from the same places you have come from. They prove that it is never too late to change.
I can no longer say that I must do this alone, because I now have Jesus and all the people at KBPA to walk alongside me.
Thank you, Pastor Jeff, Rhonda, Bruce, and all the men at KBPA for your support.

God, thank You for relationships that encourage me to continue following You. Help me to be a source of strength for others, as well.

When I got out of prison I had nowhere to go, no one who wanted me in their homes, no friends, and no money.  All I knew was that I was going to have to live at the homeless shelter and that my three pairs of jeans, three shirts, socks, coat, and shoes had been sent out from prison to Pastor Jeff at Kingdom Boundaries. Walking through single digit weather with a heavy wind is not fun and even less so with prison clothes. The weight of change and the scariness of the turbo charged world had me shaking already. I was afraid. I was alone.
Only, I wasn't alone at all. Our Heavenly Father - God Almighty - was with me, guiding me, urging me forward to get the only belongings I had left after almost 12 years of going in and out of prison, losing friends and family along the way. I wanted my coat. I didn't steal it. I didn't steal my jeans, I didn't steal my shirt or hat or gloves. They were mine. They had new meaning to me. In fact, the value of a hard-earned dollar was freshly imprinted upon my mind and heart. I didn't want to lose what little I had because I didn't want to steal again and I knew if I didn't have them I would more than likely steal because I had no money. Old habits die hard.
Little did I know God was taking better care of me than I could ever do myself. Kingdom Boundaries opened the door for me and welcomed me in with immediate loving arms and a hot cup of coffee. Before I knew it, I had a bed and a place to live. At least for a week, they said. During my stay I was fed, encouraged, prayed for, made to feel wanted, and provided for. They helped me enter an overwhelmingly scary world that runs at full pace with its attention focused solely on their phones arguing with others over Facebook. The world had grown cold and isolated itself. People didn't talk to people or want to help anyone. They only care for themselves. I saw this immediately.
Kingdom Boundaries enabled me to curl up into a ball when I felt overwhelmed and read my bible and talk to God. I didn't have to worry about my necessities so I could focus on my walk with God. I could go into my closet, shut the door, and pray to the Father who sees in secret. Not knowing what to pray for I let the Spirit do the praying and boy did God start moving. Two weeks after I arrived there I was heading home to my ex-wife and two kids who were out of my life due to my self-centered lifestyle.
Pastor Jeff counseled me and talked me through many issues regarding my addiction to drugs, my indulgence to sin, and my restoration to my wife. He took the time, late in the evening when most people are at home with their families or out doing their own thing, to ask me about my day and to give guidance and direction where needed. He cared for me. A total stranger. But he did that with all the men. 9 total. It takes a lot of patience and love to make each person feel individually important. I don't know how he does it. Sacrificing himself for the people the world wants thrown out on the curb. Jeff is taking a chance on thieves and liars and drug users, hoping to make a change on someone, one person at a time.
My wife picked me up on Saturday having no money for gas or food; her bank account was negative $900, she hadn't paid January rent or electric for the past two months, was $1,500 behind on our 4-year-old daughters day care and had bill collectors garnishing her wages. She risked coming to Sioux Falls from Aberdeen with one tank of gas and not being able to get home. Pastor Jeff - probably with a nudge from God - offered to fill up our tank. And then offered to be there for me if I ever needed anyone to talk to.
I thank God every day for Kingdom Boundaries. They are great people of God there. I pray God will bless them mightily.

My name is Robert Herron, 57 years old. I've been with Kingdom Boundaries since October 3rd 2016.
Here's my story. I did 17 ½ years in prison. That's what it took for me to find Jesus. I consider prison to be a blessing.
I met Pastor Jeff while doing time in Springfield which is how I came to find out about Kingdom Boundaries. I was nearing the end of my time and I was literally scared to death. Everything had changed after I got locked up in 1998. I had nowhere to go, no job, and no transportation.
I applied for Kingdom Boundaries with Pastor Jeff and was accepted. Kingdom Boundaries was a "God-send". On October 3rd, my son picked me up in Springfield and brought me to the "Carpenter's Shop" in Sioux Falls where Kingdom Boundaries has housed me in an apartment with two other ex-inmates. Kingdom Boundaries gave me clothes, toiletries, and a bed to sleep in. During my stay, I found employment with the "Kingdom Boundaries" president. Another God-send.
Kingdom Boundaries gives ex-inmates a place to stay, a place to sleep, and good advice. They help us get back on our feet and back into society. They've even transitioned me into their new building next door. Now I have a two-bedroom apartment with another ex-inmate. I have a home!
God bless Kingdom Boundaries Prison Aftercare!
The LORD is good! There is no end to h is faithful love. We can trust
him forever and ever! Psalms 100:5 ERV
