New Creations in Christ


By Chaplain Jimmie Smith

First: A 17-year-old boy survived getting shot seven times in a shoot-out with a rival gang. Two bullets could not be removed from his body. The doctor called him a miracle. During his stay at the Juvenile Justice Center (his eighth time in jail since he was 12 years old), he met weekly with Chaplain Jimmie Smith. During a recent session, this troubled and wounded young man placed his faith in Jesus Christ! Now the young man wants to know God’s purpose for his life.


Second: The Juvenile Justice Center wants to baptize eight boys this summer during a special outside service.

What a joy that these young men desire to publicly declare their union with Christ. Praise the Lord that Jesus is changing lives!
