Daniel McManus is current President of the "Alliance of Prison Ministry Organizations and Affiliates". In his early 20's, some 40 plus years ago, God called him, while in prison to begin prison ministries. His testimony will thrill your heart to hear how a murderer on the "inside" was brought out and instructed by God to begin prison ministries for the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. He is still busy fulfilling that calling and going strong.
Debra Coklas has been active in prison ministries since the 80's. She is a "minute woman" for the Lord and will faithfully do His bidding whenever and wherever she is called. She seems to have boundless energy as she carries forward her burden to minister to those "behind the walls" as well as their families. She wears several "hats" which she will tell you about in this episode but one of which is the "Prison Ministry Director, for the Minnesota Conference of SDA's".
God has given each of us a work to do. Perhaps prison ministries would be a good fit for you. Either way, everyone will enjoy hearing from Daniel and Debra. May the Lord richly bless them as they continue this work. PS: I filled out my application today to become a more integral part of prison ministries...
As host of the Minnesota Adventist Podcast I want to give praise and honor to my Lord and Savior and Dearest Friend, Jesus Christ, as being the inspiration behind and producer of this podcast. With His oversight and blessing, I want to offer to Seventh-Day Adventists across the state of Minnesota and beyond, news and inspiration, testimonies, interviews, sermons, music and whatever else I believe can be a help and blessing to our ever growing Adventist family. At this time, when the crescendoing judgements of God are falling upon the land and the signs of Christ's soon return are more evident everyday, we need each other. We need to band together and "press together" that we may be "one" in Christ and answer His earnest prayer to "love one another" as He has loved us. It is only in doing so, that we can help one another and others to be fully committed and ready for His soon return. "Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near...." Joel 3:14.
