"My time with LCJM I have seen God work in so many ways.  When I first began providing bible studies, I was in A pod one evening.  (Name withheld) walked in and sat not at the table but against the wall and did not speak.  This went on for many weeks, until she one day started to come to the table. 

She would sit near me at the end of the table and listen but still never speak.  One evening after I had finished the study with the ladies, they were rising to go back to the pod, but this lady came to me.  She asked for a specific bible for addicts (The Life Recovery Bible).  I had never read or heard of this bible.  It covers the 12 step AA/NA program and each step relates to a part in the bible.  So, I started to use these steps and the bible versus that go with them in the Bible Study. 

She was later released.  I did not see her for about 2 months until I ran into her by accident.  She knew me right away and came over.  She told me thank you for helping her change her life in jail.  She is a believer and gave glory to God that after she was released from jail God provided her a full-time job working over 40 hours per week within 2 days!!!!! That almost never happens when you have a record.  She did not take credit for it; it all went to God.   Then God blessed me again as about 6 months later after that meeting as I was able to see her again.   This time I ran into her in a ladies locker room at LA Fitness.  She was strong and healthy and working out and full of life.   We do not always get to see what God does, but we know even if you don’t see it, like I did with this lady, God is still working.  And sometimes in the ministry he allows us to see his work.  It is nothing short of pure Beauty and Love!"

    "I am now mentoring two ladies from maximum security pod who are not yet released.  You can imagine MAX can seem like a hopeless end.  They have been both in jail for over a year and fear for transfer if they are not sentenced soon.  One of the ladies reminded me a lot of another lady I was able to Read More
  • Brandon - Ex-Prisoner, Mentor Reentry

    "I became familiar with the work of the Loudoun Christian Justice Mission (LCJM) through the Bible studies offered while I was incarcerated at the Adult Detention Center (ADC). Some teachers helped me understand the inerrancy of Scripture by demonstrating its unity and harmony over many centuries, even though there are many human authors from different cultures and languages. To me, Read More
