“I just try to live by example and share my experience, strength, and hope.” —Mike
On a chilly January evening, Mike knelt weeping on the floor of his parents’ home. His mother had been buried earlier that day and his father lay in a hospital bed in the living room. Mike had recently relapsed into a methamphetamine addiction after 14 months of sobriety. And on top of all this, he was awaiting trial on a charge that could result in his living the rest of his life behind bars.
Although he had never committed a violent crime, an accumulation of minor felonies meant that he could be facing a possible life sentence under California’s three-strikes policy.
Mike cried out to God that night, desperately asking for help.
Men and women in prison are looking for hope. And nothing provides hope like the living Word of God. The demand for Bibles and Christian content is at an all-time high. Will you help us meet the need? Please give generously today.
