New Developments at
I Was in Prison.org

As the New Year of 2012 begins, the Florida death row and solitary confinement ministry of I Was in Prison.org is in its 14th year.

It should not be surprising that it is time to make a big move. It has been said that God speaks to us through our circumstances and in trying to follow His leading, we have discerned that it is time to relocate the ministry office.

I Was in Prison.org has rented a ministry office in Tallahassee, Florida that is co-located with the offices for the staff of the Bishops of Florida in the downtown area. The new ministry address is:
I Was in Prison
201 West Park Avenue, Ste 301
Tallahassee, FL 32301
The cell-front ministry at death row and solitary confinement in Raiford and Starke will continue as before. The non-profit ministry will be seeking to raise funds for a new desk top computer and printer and for the office rent and office expenses.

Your loving support and encouragement are key to making all these things possible. We thank you and look forward to continuing to work with you in partnership in His service.

Excellent book on the topic!,

(Review from Amazon.com)

The Biblical Truth about America's Death Penalty is a must-read. It deals with Biblical standards of Capital Punishment and then compares them to the system used in America today. It is the best-researched, most faithful to scripture, and most evenhanded analysis I have ever read concerning the Death Penalty. Whatever your persuasion on the issue, this book will teach you a great deal. Recinella is a trained lawyer and committed Christian who now volunteers part-time on Florida's death row. He thus understands law, the Bible, and the system of execution in America. I challenge anyone who supports the Death Penalty to read this book.
