Prison Mission Report
Dear Brother Ron,I received your pamphlet in the mail. I read your “History of the Ministry” and I want to continue with your Bible study, “Change Your Life Biblically”. By reading your history it definitely inspired me to the point that I had to re-read certain parts of your story. Cody, TX
Greetings,I got your “Introductory Issue”. I am serving life. Really, I don’t know how I got your booklet because of the “staples” that keep it together are not allowed in this building. So, I guess it is a blessing. I even got your mail. I’m sending back the form for “Change Your Life Biblically”. Gregg, WI
JCPM,I am serving a capital life sentence. I’ve been incarcerated since 2002. I am writing because I am interested in your Bible study. I came across this small piece of paper and thought, “What the heck. I’ll write and see where it takes me”. So, here you have me. I hope I can learn something.Francisco, TX
To Whom It May Concern,It’s a blessing to receive this pamphlet and reading brother Ron’s Testimony. God is good. I would love to receive this CYLB workbook. I am a new-born Christian. Christian, IN
Dear Brother Ron,I got your booklet last night and it really did touch me. I’ve been locked up for 15 years. When I first got locked up, I really wanted to someday see myself doing what you are for the people in prison. To get your booklet was heartwarming. It is nice to know and have evidence that there IS real people in the world who have heart. I just wanted to tell you that you are an awesome child of God. Not many get out of prison and remember those left behind, let alone put in the work it takes to build something like you have. I pray for you and your ministry and thank you once again for shedding light on the fact that there is good people in the World.Michael, MS
JCPM,I would like to receive your free Bible studies. I have given my life to the Lord. He has made me a brand new man. I now have hope. Before, I didn’t. Timothy, IN
Dear Ron,I received CYLB a while back. I can’t put it down. I tried, but I began to hear “don’t put it down”. I’ve read about 20 different Bibles through in my 30 years. But they don’t break down Revelations as you do. This book has changed me. I want to learn more. I was raised Roman Catholic, but I don’t practice the faith any more. I was given the address to CYLB and I can’t stop reading it. Guy, TX
Brother,I am out of the hole. No more locked in a cell 23 hours a day. Thank you brother for your prayers and for helping me to focus on seeing God in Heaven. Jesus is clearing my mind and helping me to see how this world and the systems that are in power keep our minds on lockdown. Beginning in school, they want us to be totally dependent on them, a worldly power, a worldly system. I have a job in the kitchen and I was reading the pamphlet “The Conversion” at work one day. Almost everyone of my coworkers asked me about it and gave me an opportunity to testify about Jesus in my life. How it has nothing to do with any church or church teaching. How freedom comes through each of our personal relationships with Jesus. Brother, I know that I am in prison for some reason and I am not anxious to be released. Thank you brother,Victor, CA
Dear Brother Ron & Duke,I just read the Newsletter. I, as always, enjoyed it. I am in my early stages of my two year anniversary of my coming home to Jesus. It was during this time two years ago that my cellie was doing his Bible correspondence and reading the questions out loud and I was answering. Something so “minor” and yet, it led to my being told about “Change Your Life Biblically”. What I find so amazing is that I have NEVER had my attention held or captivated so long, ever before, for Jesus. That, if nothing else, shows me that this is true. Always in the past, if I made it six months before I lost interest or felt the insincerity and burden of the church and just tossed it aside, I was doing good. Jesus said, “Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden light.” Matthew 11:29-30. I never found that so in the past. But I must admit, the past two years, I have not felt, ever, more was being asked than I felt able to do. Two years, still learning, still excited about learning. Doesn’t sound like too heavy a burden to me. I’ve read CYLB 5 times now and am still learning. In the past I would mess up, backslide and it was just too much trouble. The church wasn’t worried. I mean, it told me I was going to sin, so, just ask forgiveness. Now, if I sin, I feel convicted of that sin. It is so simple. James, WI
Brother Ron,I’m still reading CYLB and doing the quiz and I am enjoying it extremely well. Just going through the book is bringing a lot of my old beliefs back to me. I thank God for allowing me to come across your ministry. I thank you for the CYLB book and other letters and pamphlets you send me. It’s opening my eyes to my old beliefs and I can’t thank you enough. Daniel, VA
To Whom this May Concern,I was given your address to write to you concerning a book that will change my life. God bless you because I need change. I’ve been coming to prison for the past 25 years and I’m tired. I realize I can’t do this without Jesus Christ. But I feel I am like a mule, it’s so hard for me to read and understand the Bible. I still have a few years before I go home, and I surely don’t want to leave as I came in. So I truly thank you for what you are offering me. Catarino, CA
Hello,I am writing in regards to your inmate workbook. I am so much interested in it. Can you please send me any literature? I want to get involved in the “Change Your Life Biblically” and be part of the teachings. A fellow inmate introduced me to this and I was impressed how some of the readings were translated.Aldo, NV
Brother Ron,I believe right now that He really wants me to listen because I received the “History of the Ministry”. Brother Ron, yes, I want to continue learning and continue Bible studies. I have till 2022 and 5 years of parole. I have been doing time since 2011, since jail, and the majority of my life since I was 13. I have to turn my life around and come back towards the light.Carlos, NJ
Brother,I enjoyed reading the “History of the Ministry”. This is what Christians incarcerated and getting out need to see. That if we trust in the Lord, He will provide and open doors for us. I just want to encourage you to keep up the work. Will you send me your book, “Change Your Life Biblically”. Donte, LA
Brother Ron,I allowed an officer to read my CYLB and she said that the information in it is overwhelming because she was led to believe certain things for so long in her life. Now I believe that it’s my mission to get the Word out there because our lives depend on it. I consider myself to be a messenger of the truth. A lot of guys respect my message because the proof is in the Bible and CYLB. You would not believe how much I’ve changed since starting your Bible study and becoming a part of the JCPM family. I’m very grateful for being a part of something “real”.Jeremy, TX
Dear Ron,I just read my copy of your ministry’s history. I have to admit, I’m ready for more. I’ve been praying for a course that teaches the truth about Jesus’ teachings, history, etc. Will you please send me something to enlighten me?Terrell, FL
Brother Ron,I received and read “History of the Ministry”. While reading this, I could feel something in me moving and felt as though everything I have learned as a believer has been wrong. I felt as thought what I was reading is the real truth and it brought me to tears to think I have been taught so many wrong things in my walk since accepting Christ as my Savior. I would like to do the study you offer and continue to learn the truth about Jesus Christ.Zach, WI
Dear Brother Ron,I think this was one of the best books I have ever read or studied. It taught me a lot about truth. I never knew a lot of the things this book showed me. And a lot of the things I didn’t know I believe because it just makes sense. I know now that I have a lot of work to do to get the reward of heaven. And that I have to quit rationalizing and making excuses for my sins. I know that I can do that if I stay close to God. If I stay persistent in prayer and meditation. Thank you for this book. It has opened my eyes in ways you will never know. John, VA
Dear Brother Ron,Please add me to your Bible study list. I am in prison because of drugs. I was addicted to heroin. I believe God saved my life by me being here. I want to be a better person. I know the only way to do that is to give my life to Christ. I know I want to be closer to God. I want to learn His Word. I try to only be around believers, but as you know, they are hard to find here. In Bible study groups they know a lot about the Bible, but when class is over, they don’t apply it to their lives. Please, help me get a better relationship with Jesus Christ. Robert, IL
Dear Ron,The content of this book is phenomenal. There are so many facts and many things that resonated with me on a deep level. This is a deep book. Edward, OK
Hello,I am 35 years old. Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I grew up in New Mexico. I’ve done half my life in prison. I’m tired of living this life. I’ve been away from the world since I was 18 years old. If you could please send me any Bible studies you provide and if any type of feedback, advice or opportunities, I’d greatly appreciate it.Manoel, NM
Ron,I got cold chills after reading the testimonial that you sent. I don’t know how you got my information, but you touched on everything that I have going on in my life. At a young age, I bowed down at a Baptist church altar, repeated some words that a preacher gave me, and was told that I was saved for eternity. I went on through my entire life believing that I was saved, yet I never lived for God and my life never produced fruit. I often became frustrated because I knew that something was amiss. For, although I desired to live righteous, I did not want to give up the sin, either. I discussed this with several Christians and the answer always was, “Sit back and let God do the changing.” Heeding to that advice led to destruction. I am now doing 26 years in prison for 3 armed robberies. I would be lying if I said that I’ve found the answer for how to live for God. I still live in bondage. But I do still desire an authentic change. I’m nearly 40 years old and the chains that bind me are starting to take their toll. You receiving my information may have been God’s answer to my problem. So I would be grateful if you would send me the book. Jason, VA
Dear JCPM,Thank you for sending me this “History of the Ministry”. I don’t know how you got my information or how I was selected, but again, thank you and yes, I would love to continue learning more about Christ. Please send me the book.Rickey, IL
Brother Ron,I just wanted to thank you and commend everyone at JCPM for all the work being done in order to spread the good news of the Gospel. My cellie and I read parts of your book and really like the understanding that you gave us on the Mark of the Beast. Also, on what day is the true Sabbath, Saturday, not Sunday. Your whole book, overall, is great, easy to understand. Since the book we shared wasn’t ours, we couldn’t keep it long enough to finish it. Frank, CA
Hello,Thank you for reaching out to me. I know it is in God’s plan for me to take this journey down this path. I have been asking Jesus for a sign on why should I choose to change my life. Then, here I’m offered a career position. I’m 25 years old. Please send me the book, “Change Your Life Biblically”.Daniel, CT
JCPM,I’m writing this short, but brief letter because I’m interested in changing my life biblically. I’m a lifer without a date at the moment. I want to start changing my heart. To be honest, I really would like to hear from you. I hope you can help to add to making my relationship with Christ. Uriel, CA
Hello,The chaplain gave me a Christian resource list and I saw your ministry’s address. I decided to write you guys because I’d like to change my life biblically. I am interested in what you have to offer. Morgan, CA
JCPM,I found this booklet discarded. As the saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. I didn’t read further than the “Wanted” sign: “Friend of Jesus”. I’m striving every day to become a friend of Jesus. Sometimes I feel like doubting Thomas. I want to be as Christ-like as possible.Thomas, FL
Dear JCPM,I am in receipt of your “Introductory Issue”. Yes, I would like to participate in your “Change Your Life Biblically”. Kenneth, IL
Brother Ron,I just got done reading “History of the Ministry”. I’m writing you to let you know that I do want to continue in Bible studies. Please send me the book, “Change Your Life Biblically”. Thank you. I got your information from my brother Christopher, my neighbor. I’m looking forward to learning more about Jesus and the things He did for us. Jared, OR
Dear JCPM,I have read, “History of the Ministry” and I’m impressed and amazed. I would like to continue to learn. I’m not sure how this process works. Will you send me the book, “Change Your Life Biblically”. LeMonday, OR
Ron,Thank you for everything you do and have done for many people. I would like to continue in Bible studies and would like to do the workbook.Eduardo, ID
JCPM,Can you please send me your “Change Your Life Biblically” workbook? I will be very greatly appreciated.Jason, UT
Ron,My cellie received your introductory issue. He didn’t want it so he gave it to me. I would like to receive your Bible studies. I would really appreciate it.Edward, OK
Dear JCPM,I ran across your “Introductory Issue” on top of a table in my unit pod when I was coming back from chow. God sent me right to your pamphlet like it was waiting for me to receive. I was amazed from what I was reading. It was very interesting how the power within this book, “CYLB” helped changed the life of thousands and thousands of prison inmates. The material of this book from what I’ve heard from reading the pamphlet is “mind blowing”. The experience of the Holy Spirit at work. It is a book that I want in my life. I want the truth. I had been taught wrong for so many, many years in my life. I want to see the light. Please send me this life-changing book that everybody else is talking about. Frederick, VA
Hi Ron,I’m really enjoying “Change Your Life Biblically”. I told everyone I came across about the “Brainwashing” section. I just loved that. It showed me how easily it is to be brainwashed. I am 51 years old and I come from a long line of pastors, evangelists, deacons and praise dancers. I never grasped any of this. I’m thirsty now and scared of not interpreting the Bible right. I’ve read it and had no understanding. Now I am working on the obedient part. I like how you said not to think of yourself as a “prisoner of the state” but as a “Volunteer Missionary”. I like how it’s put plain and simple, sin is breaking the Ten Commandments. There is some really great stuff in this book. Erica, TN
Dear Brother Ron,I thank God for you and this ministry because now I am learning the truth about God and how to live a godly life. I must admit, since my last letter, I have encountered some of the people I know are calling me crazy. They are not interested in what I have to share. It saddens my heart because I know they have been deceived as I was. I have learned that there are a lot of things I must remove from my thoughts and life. It will take time to replace the people who choose to serve sin with people who love God as I do. We have become pleasers of man instead of pleasers of God. We focus on what is acceptable to society instead of focusing on what is acceptable to God. I now understand the importance of spending time with God daily and keeping His Sabbath. Brother Ron, being a part of God’s family and your ministry is a blessing that is priceless. Now I have someone to fellowship with on the truth. These things have impacted my life. First by changing how I see things from a worldly point to a spiritual view. Next, I am changing my daily habits because my thoughts are changing. I am learning to stand boldly for God and the real truth, even though people are backing away from me. James, LA
Dear JCPM,We really enjoy your monthly study. Thank you for your prayers. We would like to have a copy of the “Change Your Life Biblically”.Steve, KY
JCPM,I’ve been a Christian for most of my life. For a lot of that, I’ve been confused about a lot of things the Bible says that seem like contradictions or confuse me. This has made it hard to feel the connection I want and need in my faith and has caused me to stray a lot. The first part of CYLB has been really impactful for me in both these areas. In reading the teachings, I realize they come from someone who understands and has been where I am now. This has also helped me to open my heart and mind to the lessons. I’ve learned about sin. How living with sin can take everything wonderful from our lives. How we can become new creatures without sin, who no longer live that way. Brainwashing is very real. I was brainwashed at an early age. Molested and physically and emotionally abused by my mother. She tried to make me hate my father who she’d taken me away from. It took years and years for me to learn the truth, but it was too late. My father was murdered when I was nine years old. This Bible study has already given me a renewed sense of direction and understanding which has lightened my heart considerably.Erik, OR
Dear Jesus Christ Prison Ministry,I would like to have a “Change Your Life Biblically” book. My cellmate has one and I think it is amazing. I was locked up in 2016 and won’t get out until late 2020. It has been a while since I have started seeking Him and the truth daily. I would really like to have a “Change Your Life Biblically” workbook. I really appreciate and admire all of your work for the Lord you are doing. Michael, CA
Dear Brother Ron,I always enjoy your newsletters and pass them on to others. My friends really like your book. Your books are full of information. Here are three more ladies that are interested in receiving your materials. Thank you for everything. You are greatly appreciated. Well, take care brother Ron. I was touched by your personal testimony about your past. You’ve been through a lot. Kimu, AZ
Dear JCPM,I am writing you to request a copy of “Change Your Life Biblically”. Isaac, TX
JCPM,For starters, this is one of the most intense Bible study courses I have done. As you can see, I had to scribble things out and put in different answers. I have learned a lot about putting all the pieces of the puzzle together to get the full look at the entire picture and what is going on. I learned how easy it really is to keep the Ten Commandments and that the Lord’s day is Saturday. As an ex-Catholic, I used to keep Sundays holy. Then, at the last institution I was at, my pastor told me that I could keep any day as the Sabbath. I now keep Saturday holy. My eyes are now wide open to these teachings of Jesus. Thank you for these great studies of the Word and Jesus teachings. This is by far the most in-depth Bible study I have ever seen or done. It amazes me how the Old Testament and New Testament fit together like a puzzle. I really believed that I had at least the basic understanding of the Scriptures. You bring me the full understanding of everything, especially the prophesies. It amazes me how it all comes together. I never would of gotten the true meaning and understanding of all that until I read this book. The Holy Spirit definitely was with you when you wrote it. You have opened my eyes to everything and unpacked everything in the Scriptures. What a blessing to be led by the Holy Spirit in such a powerful way. Being brought up as a Catholic, when I became a Christian, I had to let go of everything I thought I knew and start over. Someone offered me a card to mail out and receive your book, “Change Your Life Biblically”. So once again, here I am having to forget all I thought I knew and enlighten myself with the help of the Holy Spirit in the truth. I feel like for the first time my eyes are open and my heart is softened because I can fully understand the meaning of the Scriptures. I now have a full understanding of the Ten Commandments and that I can obey them all. How can pastors, priests, prayer warriors say they are doing God’s work and lead us so astray. Now that I am a new man in Christ, I will let all that past teachings go and let the Holy Spirit lead me and obey the Lord. I have learned so much history it’s unbelievable. I have learned that when Paul talks about doing away with the law, he is talking about the civil laws, health laws and temple sacrificial and ceremonial laws; not the Ten Commandments. The blessings I have received and the peace that I now have is great because of this true understanding. Being rased as a Catholic and reading all this about the Catholic Church makes so much sense. As I was reading through it and remembering when I would attend Catholic mass and services, how everything was about them and what they think. Never was it really about Jesus Christ and the truth. I am so blessed that I am no longer Catholic and I am born again Christian.Inmate
Dear JCPM,I got your information from a fellow inmate here on my unit. I figured I’d write to see if you could help me. I would like to receive your Bible study and any other services you may offer. Christopher, TX
Testimony for God's Children
Church has given church members a false sense of “saved”. Church will not save one person. Throughout history church has been the means of destroying all who were a part of church. The only safe haven is Jesus. Listening to Him and living in obedience to Him. Sitting in church will kill you faster than cheese.
The following is how we are to find the “lost coin”. We are not to find them and drag them to church. We are not to find them and gripe and complain about them. We are not to point fingers at them. We are to find the lost coins that have lost their luster. Those coins that have lost their value. Those coins sitting in a church, doing nothing of value for Jesus. We must find them and bring them to Jesus and Jesus only who is the only One who can polish them up and give them back their value.
The Lost Silver
The lost piece of silver is designed to represent the erring, straying sinner. The carefulness of the woman to find the lost silver is to teach the followers of Christ a lesson in regard to their duty to the erring ones who are straying from the path of right. The woman lighted the candle to increase her light, and then swept the house, and sought diligently till she found it.
Here is clearly defined the duty of Christians toward those who need help because of their straying from God. The erring ones are not to be left in darkness and error, but every available means is to be used to bring them again to the light. The candle is lighted; and, with earnest prayer for heavenly light to meet the cases of those enshrouded in darkness and unbelief, the word of God is searched for clear points of truth, that Christians may be so fortified with arguments from the word of God, with its reproofs, threatenings, and encouragements, that the erring ones may be reached. Indifference or neglect will meet the frown of God.
Notice, “because of their straying from God”. They did not stray from church. Most who have strayed from God are sitting in church. Go find them and get them out of the church darkness and error and take them to Jesus.
How well are you “fortified with arguments from the word of God”? Who have you brought to Jesus? I’m not talking about taking them to church, I’m talking about taking them to Jesus. If you are indifferent or negligent, you will “meet the frown of God”.
When the woman found the silver, she called her friends and her neighbors together, saying: “Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost. Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.” If the angels of God rejoice over the erring who see and confess their wrongs and return to the fellowship of their brethren, how much more should the followers of Christ, who are themselves erring, and who every day need the forgiveness of God and of their brethren, feel joy over the return of a brother or a sister who has been deceived by the sophistry of Satan and has taken a wrong course and suffered because of it.
The next time you go to church, look around at all those who are being deceived by the sophistry of Satan and are taking a “wrong course” by sitting in church. Those sitting in church have not confessed and turned from their wrongs. Sin is rampant in the church. Begin sharing this ministry with all around you and watch the “frown of God” change to “angels of God rejoice”.
Instead of holding the erring off, their brethren should meet them where they are. Instead of finding fault with them because they are in the dark, they should light their own lamp by obtaining more divine grace and a clearer knowledge of the Scriptures, that they may dispel the darkness of those in error by the light that they bring to them. And when they succeed, and the erring feel their error and submit to follow the light, they should be received gladly, and not with a spirit of murmuring or an effort to impress upon them their exceeding sinfulness, which had called forth extra exertion, anxiety, and wearisome labor. If the pure angels of God hail the event with joy, how much more should their brethren rejoice, who have themselves needed sympathy, love, and help when they have erred and in their darkness have not known how to help themselves. 3T 99-100.
Begin reading, watching and listening to our Bible studies. Learn them. They were dictated and directed by God. Learn the truth and then live it. Then share it with those around you.
