We need funds to print more curriculum manuals. Every month there are more people who sign up for this movement! In addition, because of many who have been transferred, God is scattering His church & other prisons are requesting CBB in their prisons.... only God! Just like the disciples were scattered, and spread the Gospel, these transferred interns are spreading the Good News!

We've just launched the 2nd quarter of Church Behind Bars Movement.
Here's the short version: It was amazingly F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!! Thank you!
Here's a longer version:
The last day in the women's prison, the Lord unleashed HIs vengeance on the devil by bursting into our midst! Amy had the privilege of anointing all of the women as they came in. The fragrance of the oil delighted the girls....a simple but profound encounter with the King. She observed a sister on the front row with her foot out of her shoe. Amy asked if she could pray for her injury. Her foot had been fractured a year ago but because of several transfers, she was never seen by a doctor to have it casted. To add insult to injury, she has a disorder in her nervous system that capitalizes on any assault to the body to cause nerves to overreact. The burning sensation steals her sleep and punishes her for donning her shoe much less walking. As Amy prayed, the burning disappeared and her range of motion began returning as she moved her ankle in faith. Before long, the ankle was fully restored! Another sister received healing for her fractured wrist (another one waiting for her appointment to be casted). These brave recipients took the mic and shared their testimony. The room erupted with rejoicing and immediately lines formed when the team called them up for prayer. More healings followed, along with 2 deliverances.
I prayed for a woman with a chronic degenerative foot disease that instantly healed after walking her through the process of forgiving herself.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain and Cancer pain reduced 50% as the evening closed (believing it was continuing to diminish as she proclaimed her identity); Broken hearts mended and joy restored. The women danced their way out into the compound FULL!
We also learned that over the last few months, there have been 7 women up early every morning praying out on the yard. This small group is up to 40 now and they have led 5 to the Lord because of their presence out there. The are truly the Church, indigenous missionaries on assignment to advance the Kingdom of Heaven.
Thank you for sending us to the least of these!
Thank you all very much for all your prayers and support! We are very happy to report that Church Behind Bars Prison Initiative launch in January and February was a success! Your prayers that have gone before us and accompanied us were felt, and I assure you made the difference in the outcome of our launch.
Our teams were met with much anticipation and expectation from the inmates signed up for the leadership training. As the year progresses, we know this level of expectation will only grow. Praise God! We were very pleased with the results of January and February, as we saw an average of 142 inmates attend the leadership sessions each day in the afternoons and an evening attendance of 350 to 400 for the ministry concerts and programs at night between the two units.
Based on the response cards that were filled out each night and collected in January, we had:
11 Salvations - These need to be followed up by the Chaplaincy Department and preferably through the Church Behind Bars inmate leadership. This is what we are trying to develop for the future so that the inmate community recognizes their responsibility to their peers and stop relying on the outside church to do that work.
72 Rededicated their lives to Christ - This group needs to be engaged so that they can get more involved in the Chapel programs and grow in their faith so that they can help the other inmates who are looking for some good life building skills to succeed in life. The Church Behind Bars will be encouraged to get involved in this area as well.
38 Requested Additional Information - Solid Rock Ministries will be sending additional information to those who wanted to know more and direct them to the chapel programs for future growth in the Lord.
These men and women are thirsty, and God has so much that He wants to bless them with. I get excited just thinking about it. In addition to the three-day sessions we have with them each month, each inmate (leader in training) was given a training manual. This manual is chalked full of God’s truth, love, and life, that it will propel them into a deeper relationship and understanding of who they are and what they are a part of “The Church Behind Bars”.
Your partnership and involvement have made a huge impact on what will be a phenomenal life changing year for each of these believers and warriors for Christ.
Thank you again for your financial gifts and heart for God’s sons and daughters that have all been forgotten by our society. Please keep supporting us as we cannot do this alone! We need you! We still have 9 more months to cover financially for ourselves and for four pastors we are bringing in to help instruct and minister.
On behalf of the inmates we serve, we say thank you for making the launch of this Church Behind Bars a success. You are an important part of spiritual history and we pray you reap a great reward for your sacrifice.
We launch in 2 days... please consider donating to this 12 month initiative!
The Healing Wings Team departs early tomorrow morning to launch the Church Behind Bars Initiative! We have been at a fast pace for such a long time preparing for this huge Kingdom assignment!

A Church Behind Bars Update: by Robin D'Haillecourt
WE'RE CASTING THE NET!
Our fundraising efforts continue for the "Church Behind Bars" Prison Initiative in 2017. Beloved we are asking you to partner with us through your prayers and finances. We have not hit our mark with the needed funding at this point and time, and we need your help. This has been a very tedious and time consuming season as we continue to work on the curriculum that will groom these leaders to become champions. Currently, we are gathering resources, people and materials, as well as, networking with the prisons and other ministries. WE ARE GETTING SOOOO EXCITED!!!!
Matthew 4:19~ "Then He said to them, 'Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men'"
Jesus invited simple ordinary men to follow Him and to begin establishing His Kingdom. The disciples had no idea of what they were about to be a part of! Their vision was limited and their thinking was earthbound. They believed the Messiah would establish His Kingdom on earth like most earthly kingdoms had previously done.
Nevertheless, Jesus looked into the hearts of these ordinary men and saw potential. He looked into their future to see a world turned upside down by these sold out laid down lives! Jesus spent the next 3 years investing in His disciples by teaching them the reality of His Kingdom. He planted seeds of truth that would later explode within them and bring forth revelation, anointing, and power. Their new found identity and mission, would then propel them into the world to fulfill all they were commissioned to do.
Jesus still calls out to ordinary people to continue the work He started over 2000 years ago. His invitation still echoes loudly to all who will respond. Each soul is a living stone that becomes a part of God's church. For God's church is not made of man- made material, but is made of each one of us who has given our life to the Lord.
Healing Wings Ministries and Solid Rock Ministry have responded to the call to GO into the prisons and raise up leaders. Each soul responding to God's invitation, will go forth proclaiming Jesus Christ, and establish His Kingdom in that prison! Together as His church, they will overcome the darkness that looms within those prison walls. We believe those prisons will never be the same!
We look to launch this initiative in January of 2017, and the time is drawing near. Would you prayerfully consider supporting The Church Behind Bars with a monthly, quarterly or one time financial gift? We cannot do this without each one of you, but together we can pool God's resources and finance this Kingdom building initiative.
CAN WE COUNT ON YOUR SUPPORT?
