The answer is YES. As I was writing this on a Saturday morning E (I'll keep his name anonymous) stopped by. I met E. about 6 years ago in jail, while he was serving some serious time for a serious crime. He had accepted Jesus behind bars and then I showed up to witness his slow and joyous transformation into a gentle man of God. Now he has been out 3 years and lives in a motor home. He has a job, goes to a local church, is involved in a men's ministry and bearing fruit. When I first met him outside the walls of the jail, he was in chronic and fragile need. God has built him up and grounded him in his Word. E. is a walking example of a transformed, transfigured life. What a gift to have the job I have!!
