Craig on Wheels!
Meet my friend Craig. After 17 years away from driving while serving a prison term, Craig reports it was just like riding a bike - only bigger. In fact, the only part of his driving test that didn't go well was the "new" rule that your hands on the wheel are supposed to be at "9 and 3" rather than at "10 and 2". Why? So that if the airbag blows, you won't be eating your forearms.
Craig is now set up with the Honda for the next couple of months. We're praying this will only serve to accelerate (pun intended) his ministry with ex-cons coming out of prison. I've been so inspired by his story and his commitment to help these men translate their faith to life outside of prison walls.
Will you pray for Craig? Not about driving the Honda - it's just a thing. But pray for Craig's critical role in this life-transformational ministry. Most of these men went to jail a prisoner, became free in Christ behind bars, and now they are trying to learn how to live as free in the world.
