Prisoners often find solace in the Bible, God’s Word. It is a source of comfort, strength, encouragement, and instruction.

I am a Native American and a prisoner for Jesus. I want to encourage fellow inmates and families of inmates. I’ve been a prisoner for Jesus for years, preaching and teaching the Good News of Jesus, His precious grace to inmates, guards, and all who will listen.

I am bold, fearless, and all about my Father’s business. I know who I am in Jesus. I’ve been persecuted, denied, hated, and bruised. But it doesn’t matter because its only for a moment and soon I will return back to my home—heaven. On my grave it will say, “Return to Sender.”

Simply put, I want people to know Jesus loves them. He takes you as you are. His grace changes you. Jesus is Grace—undeserved, unearned, and unmerited favor of God.

I’ve been through many trials and I’m putting it lightly. I’ve lost everything but my body and breath. Don’t give up!

Currently I am in prison for a crime I did commit. But later through the years, laws changed and it provided new doors of opportunity. So I can challenge my imprisonment.

I thank Jesus for the new doors of opportunity. Currently I’ve been sentenced illegally three times on the same charge. I am falsely imprisoned and under Double Jeopardy—punished for the same offense numerous times.

Sometimes people will abuse their power. For whatever reasons they do it, I don’t know, but I guess they have to live with it.

In my life, I had a choice to make. I could either harbor bitterness and anger and give up or choose to love and forgive complete strangers who denied my freedom and abused their authority and power.

I chose to love and forgive. I know Jesus listens and Jesus makes miracles happen. So I decided to proclaim Jesus in court rooms, to senators, lawmakers, attorneys, newspapers and the president. I hope one day someone will hear my voice.

Any opportunity I can find to preach and teach the Good News I will. These new doors of opportunity have been a blessing and provided an opportunity to be set free. I am already free in Jesus.

Don’t give up! You are precious, you are beautiful. You are a world changer wherever you are.

If you are an unbeliever or believer, Jesus loves you. Call out to Jesus, believe in Him and receive Him as your Savior. If you are discouraged, look up, look around. See Jesus’ beauty. Because you are beautiful in Jesus’ eyes.
