LaVonne is visiting a young woman in a correctional facility’s drugs rehabilitation center. She recently gave her heart to Jesus and LaVonne has been discipling her in the basics of the faith.

Today, on her usual visit, she was intercepted by another young lady, an inmate, who had a brighter countenance than others around her and who asked her, “Are you Wendy’s* pastor?” LaVonne said that she was. The  young woman told her that after each discipleship session Wendy has been passing on what she’s been learning to her sister inmates, of whom she is one, and they have been greatly blessed.  [*Wendy is not her real name.]

We have also been discipling a young couple in our church. Using what they learned in the session on evangelism, they led their house-mate to Christ; and he came with them to our Sunday morning service. Now they are going to be discipling him!
