Generosity in Unexpected Places

by Stephanie Anfinson March 18, 2024


“If I say, ‘Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,’
even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you.” (Psalm 139:11–12)

It’s awe-inspiring to witness the transformative power of God in the most unexpected places, like the Okaloosa County Jail in Crestview, Florida. Despite the darkness that often shrouds such environments, stories of God’s profound impact on individuals’ lives shine through. John Reaves, a valued partner, collaborates with the Emerald Coast Life Center (ECLC) and Joy Fellowship Ministries to run a recovery program within the jail.

Their efforts extend beyond rehabilitation to equipping inmates with essential life skills. Recently, inmates participated in Crown’s Do Well program, focusing on biblical principles of financial stewardship. The profound impact of these teachings was evident as hearts began to change. In a remarkable display of generosity, inmates started tithing their commissary funds to support fellow inmates in need. This selfless act exemplifies the transformation occurring within these men.

Let’s celebrate the incredible work happening within these walls, acknowledging God’s presence and guidance. May these men continue to seek Him and live by His teachings, and may the leaders involved be granted strength and encouragement in their ministry.
