Introduction I am just an ordinary person who was asked to minister inside my state's worst prison. It took me about 3 years to finally go. I mean... its a PRISON! But, you know what? I was surprised what I found there. I met a man named Benjamin who has been in prison since 1995 for a horrible crime he committed at the age of 18. He was not what I expected to find in that place and I wanted to share his story. It has touched me and I hope it will touch you. Benjamin doesn't have access to the internet, so if you have questions or comments for him it may take some time for a response. If you have a question for Ben, just put FOR BEN at the beginning and I will do my best to get it to him. Ben is an inmate in the Mississippi Department of Corrections. He is currently serving a sentence of Life Without Parole plus thirty-five years for murder and armed robbery. Since his arrest in 1995, he has committed his life to Jesus Christ, and is involved in programs to prevent teen violence and improve prisoner's ability to cope with life outside of prison. Currently, he is enrolled in a seminary program where he will receive training to facilitate these efforts.
Favorite Books The Bible, Making Peace With Your Past, The Mind of Christ, anything by A.W. Tozer.
