This was the newsletter that reported my visit:

Dear Intercessors,

The interns at Marion Correctional Institution enjoyed a fabulous visit this past weekend.  Rich Swingle portrayed the book of Revelation for the men (  They were quite moved by his acting and interpretation.  Here is what two of our CBB leaders had to say about the presentation: 

"Wow!! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!  At the end of the morning session I told the guys that in my 75 & 1/2 years I have seen hundreds of sermons and plays, but I have never seen anything like that. Rich brought the character of John so alive and to portray the book of Revelation in the way he did was absolutely amazing." -C. B.
"Just wanted to send a note to let you know we had a great time Saturday with Rich, I was amazed at the program he put on. No one was disappointed when they left the Chapel. : ) He asked for some praise music to open the service, and we had no available praise team, per say, so I was asked by one of the Chapel orderlies if I would do some praise and worship, and I said I would. Rich asked if I knew any songs that would correlate to the Book of Revelations.  I said I sure do and opened with an up tempo song, then played and sang Revelation Song by Philips, Craig, and Dean- one of my all time favs.  Rich was ecstatic, it was the perfect song for his skit. I am amazed at how well he can recall an entire book of the Bible and put it into a visual perspective. Thanks for sending Rich!"  -J. T.

Praise the Lord!  God is moving!  If you would like to support our Church Behind Bars movement please click the button below.
