Plane State Unit, Dayton
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
, and Bill Everts, our director. Charity Fyke from Oaks
, a Christian Halfway House and program for re-entry
in Humble assisted and we were joined by two other volunteers, Mr. &
Unit Chaplain Dr.
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
some highlights from the event.
We send a heart-felt thank you to Chaplain Hrebik, our volunteers
and partners for this blessed event.
