Testimony

OCTOBER GRADUATING GRO POD STUDENT WRITES: Being in the GRO Pod has helped me grow with God, spiritually and love my brother. GRO Pod has taught me more about the Bible and I have been able to quote scripture off of my memory. My life has truely changed because of my Lord Jesus Christ. I am truly thankful that I did come into the jail because I was able to meet God and begin a relationship with Him. Thank you all who are behind the GRO Pod because you are truly changing lives daily. Chaplain's Note: It cost us $240 to graduate a GRO Pod student. It is an eight week program and we graduate over 150 students each year. This program remains underfunded. Your help is needed. Thanks.
