James River Assembly in Ozark, Missouri, reports that in 2010 the Living Free ministry in that church ministered to 1,002 persons helping them overcome life-controlling problems through the power of Christ.

A Living Free seminar was presented in Ashkalon, Israel on March 30. Petr Ministr, President of Teen Challenge Czech Republic and Tom Bremer, President of Europe Teen Challenge trained Russian-speaking leaders from across the southern region of Israel.

Jonatan Vlaisavljevic is planning to present the Living Free video training to a government body in the capitol city of Macedonia. He also reports that they are developing the Insight Group for Youth and testing the response among the teens.

Uganda Recently, we received the following email message from a pastor in Uganda concerning Living Free.

Your material has lots to learning and living free. Please I do appreciate your materials. They're very educative. God bless you. Your in His service. Pastor Richard, Uganda East Africa

We are so blessed to be a part of equipping God's people all over the globe. God bless Pastor Richard as he does his part to reach the more than 32 million Ugandan people.

The following is a recent report from a church volunteer who takes Living Free into a Missouri jail.

"Wanted to give you an update on our classes at the jail. On Thursday, we have a group of men that is really on fire for God. One young man, Dustin, was a 3rd generation meth cook. He didn't know anything about Jesus. He got saved in jail. He has been in and out of prison all his life. We are doing the Living Free class on depression. We give them handouts with the lessons every week that they can follow along with and then take back to the pod (area of the jail). At the end of the lessons in this particular study are 5 days of in-depth Bible study. They have been taking these back and using them to teach the others in the pod. Dustin, the young man I referred to, is now leading the study and has seen several come to Christ. He has even been giving 2 of the Corrections Officers scriptures. We were seriously pumped when we came out of jail today. It is the ripple effect. I feel so privileged to get to do this."

Thank you God for volunteers who will take Living Free behind bars to reach people for Christ. Changed lives can change the world. Lord, continue to use Justin as he continues to use the Living Free studies to reach others for Jesus.

  • Testimony from Rwanda

    God does heal the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds (Psalm 147:3). Read the following testimony we received today regarding today's Living Free Every Day devotion provided by Living Free ministries.

    "Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Thank you so much for the message of forgiveness. Jesus Christ recommend us to forgive if we want to be forgiven. For us Rwandans, we are experiencing forgiveness and now we are free from the bondage of unforgiveness. When you forgive, even physically, you are released. I am telling you this because I have forgiven those who killed my parents and relatives. But, ask to be led by the Holy Spirit who will enable you to forgive those who sin against you."
