John was the first person we met in our neighborhood. That was a God thing for sure. Back then John ran with the Crips and got into all sorts of trouble. One of the reasons he doesn't do that now is because he is in jail, but another reason is all of your prayers for him. God has been doing some mighty work the last year, starting with the time he lived with us and into the present as he sits out his time behind bars waiting for a trial that keeps getting postponed. His most recent letter to Wes informed us of his choice to leave the life of crime behind and to give his whole body and mind over to the lord Jesus.
I invite you all to renew prayers for this man, that the lord's justice will come swiftly along with his mercy and good will towards John's life.
May Jesus be praised and may the love of Christ shine in the life of our friend and brother John Dunn.
If you would like to write to John in addition to praying for him here is his info:

In the next weeks we will be having elections for the neighborhood association, so we also ask for prayers that GOd will give us the right leaders and the right vision for the community at large.
God bless and may his peace rest upon the readers of this post. Amen.
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
