A.J.F. The first time I attended Bible study with Ms. Renee was at DWCRC and I fell in love! It was a recharge to spiritual battery. I visited the Bible study once a week, even when I moved to BTC and then back to DWCRC and finally to Centre. Once, I am out in the community, I will be attending COAST because that will be the only access to the first person who made me realize truth about my Heavenly Father and the love He has for me and that He forgives me even though I am not perfect. She has taught me that He is a forgiving God and her energy gets me so excited about learning the Bible. I love her testimony and all her stories. She is so solid in the Lord. She makes me want to put in the hard work. And she allows me to see that the rewards the Lord promises are all worth it, worth the struggle! Ms. Renee has so much knowledge and patience and understanding and she loves me. She will love you, too! She will not give up on you. She will share her story. She will teach you the Word and be excited about it, all of it, even the stuff that is not so good.
N.S. I first started going to Bible study in February while I was at BTC. I lost my faith. Every time I would go into jail, I would slowly find it, but would leave it at the door when I got out. I have found my faith again, and it was when I started to go to Bible study at Centre. I have not missed one study there and I learn something new each time I go. I am not only getting fed the Word of God, but she teaches it so it is easy to understand. And I feel like I am part of a family. Renee is a truly, genuine, caring person. When Wednesday comes, I look forward to class. She has brought me joy with her teachings. By walking with Jesus, I am building a relationship with God. I am being remembered, God has never given up on me. He is going to bring me all the way, not half way. I have faith I am going to continue to grow in the Word of God when I am released.
K.G.I. I have been coming to Bible study every Wednesday at Centre. I have learned so much about the Lord and have grown so much in the faith because of this group. I love it so much! I have learned to fully put my trust in the Lord with everything. I pray now! I have never, ever prayed before and now I do. I have a strong relationship with the Lord and I truly feel that this group had helped me grow so much. I recommend to everyone that they come to Bible study. I cannot express my gratitude enough for this ministry. I have so much hope now and I BELIEVE!! I give thanks for Freedom Prison Ministries.
M.N. When I first met Ms. Renee, I was broken hearted and lost from my addiction and my poor choices. She filled my heart with hope and knowledge of the Lords love. I have yearned for a way out of the drains of my lifestyle choices. Renee has a very intimate way of teaching the Word through her own trials and victories and incorporating Scripture to apply it to each and every one of us as Gods children. She is so passionate and dedicated to helping all who wander lost on their journey. She dissects the Word and Jesus family tree and really gives a soul the building blocks to become an amazing Christian. Renee has compassion for every member - never judging, condemning or turning one away because of any of their past. I am a healing, better person for attending these meetings. I never leave feeling like an alien in my struggles. There is a family feeling. God blessed me through Freedom Prison Ministries and Mrs. Renee Zahn.
