Plane State Unit, Dayton

We were blessed to baptize 75 women incarcerated at the Plane State unit on Saturday, June 4, 2022. Participating in the event were four Less Than The Least volunteers: Pastor David Humphrey, Stephanie Balfour, Denise Sowders from United City Church, and Bill Everts, our director. Charity Fyke from Oaks of Righteousness, a Christian Halfway House and program for re-entry in Humble assisted and we were joined by two other volunteers, Mr. & Mrs. McDonald.

Unit Chaplain Dr. Kevin Hrebik held a class before the baptisms to make sure the ladies were all aware of what baptism is and is not. Pastor David opened the meeting in prayer and Chaplain Hrebik went through the class presentation. The ladies were asked to recite the relevant verses and they participated. Several of the Plane State choir members and some future Oaks of Righteousness residents were baptized. The unit choir is led by Stephanie Everts, a LTTL volunteer. Chaplain Hrebik also announced to the ladies that they will be enrolled in the Starting Point class sponsored by LTTL Ministries, starting Friday June 10 from 3 - 5 pm. The class will use the Starting Point book from United City Church and will be taught by Stephanie Balfour and Denise Sowders, Less Than The Least volunteers and members of United City.

There were shouts of praise and cheers as the ladies cheered on their fellow inmates getting baptized. We hope that you will enjoy this short video with some highlights from the event.

We send a heart-felt thank you to Chaplain Hrebik, our volunteers and partners for this blessed event.
