A PRISON MINISTRY BORN IN THE HOLIDAY INN HOTEL NEAR THE AIRPORT, NASHVILLE TENNESEE

 

On another business trip Robert Noland again checked into the Holiday Inn near the Nashville airport. “This time my marriage was really in trouble and I had no idea what to do about it. My wife and I had been in counselling, but not much was changing. I was mostly away from home, and, more than anything, I missed my three daughters. That evening, I was very troubled about separating from my wife, and very concerned about what would happen to my children. Although I was not particularly religious, I was very distraught, and I began praying about my worries and about my children. I believe the Lord spoke to me and suggested I look in the nightstand beside the bed. I did, and found the Bible that had been placed there. “I read. I found that God’s servants will suffer, but that they will be free of their pain as they go on to do God’s work. Right then and there, I felt the Lord’s presence. I felt relieved of my pain, worry and guilt as I surrendered my life to God.

“My divorce was bitter and hard-fought. Nevertheless, I was able to stay in close touch with my children. I recovered financially, never missed a support payment, and gave each of my children the education they wanted. I became involved with a prison ministry and also enrolled in a home study course. I have completed a master’s degree in theology. The first Kairos Prison Ministry weekend took place in Maryland. As the state chair of the organisation, I have plans for two other prisons and the families of the incarcerated. God truly has worked a miracle in my life. “God does not call us to be successful; God calls us to be faithful. Thank you for being faithful to your call to place a Bible where it was needed. “Your brother in Christ. The Gideons International
