Diesel Therapy, Again: Part Two

Diesel Therapy Again
My Journey from Jesup, Georgia to Florence, Colorado

June 11, 2011

Hey all! What a time this has been! I’m in Tallahassee for two weeks until they fly me to Oklahoma for an un-designated amount of time in that human – transfer center. Then, not to Pekin, Illinois, but to Florence, Colorado! The excuse given for my move was that the Jesup camp was overcrowded. Ironically, I met five men today who are on their way to the very same camp in Jesup that they just moved me out of! All five of us they moved from Jesup have cases pending in the courts. Could that be the reason behind the move?

This transfer center in Tallahassee is nice. There is a large, open room with lots to do from 6am – 10pm. At night, we are locked in quiet two-man cells. After nine months living where I was in the dorm only five feet from the microwaves and sink and doors, the quiet was strange! I loved it! The coveralls they give everyone in the transfer centers are not comfortable at all and I lived in them for four and a half months at the county jail and for fifty days while in transit last time. My first day here, I was put in a room with a very nice guy who works in laundry. He gave me shorts, extra oranges to eat (I LOVE oranges!), a real pillow! and other odd stuff I needed. God is good! Pretty good library and food here, too!

My first night here, they had a Bible study with about seven guys. I attended and everyone introduced themselves. The group leader asked if I would lead the study last night! I cried. They told me both in Edgefield and in Jesup that I was not to lead any Bible studies even if it was only with one other person! I’ve been taking in for months with no outlet. I felt like the Dead Sea! What a blessed release to share my faith and teach the Word of God again!

The counselor in Jesup had told me my first week there that if he wanted to, he could send me where I would never see my family! (Some people need a job mowing grass not dealing with people.) All the inmates including me avoided him but I must have gotten on his radar somehow. Hmmmm? I feel certain it is a Genesis 50:20 thing. We’ll see the Romans 8:28 of this one day. I just reread the words to the song “Farther Along”. Wow! Perfect fit for my case! I continue to file motions with both the 11th Circuit court and the District court.

I’ll do my best to keep everyone up to speed as I hear what is happening. There are about 80 guys in this dorm so it is a whole new mission field for two weeks!

Thanks for your prayers.

    Dear Dr. Hovind,

    You’ve been on my mind lately. As the Holy Spirit leads I think and pray for you. I trust you are keeping well in your current circumstances and I can see from the above that you are being used in a very special way by the Lord. Several years back I received your 7 DVD set on Creation Science. I have been reminded recently how that set of DVDs and your faithful ministration of God’s eternal truths blessed me deeply at that time. My mother had recently passed in the United States and I was not able to go and see her or be part of her funeral. I have been living and working in South Africa for over twenty years. I cannot tell you how I was comforted by your teaching and words at that time. Your teaching deeply comforted me and bolstered my faith at a very tough time in my life.

    I pray that you are blessed and strengthened in your inner man daily and that your current circumstances would prove a special place for new depths in Him and His love for you. Be blessed dear Brother in Christ.

    Yours faithfully,

    Hello Dr. Hovind
    I have watched all your creation videos about a hundred times each and I was wondering if you are allowed to receive mail?

    Hi Kent,

    You sure do move around a lot! I liked the idea of knowing you were just a 45 minute drive up the road from where I live (Waycross) but I suppose God has bigger plans for you than Jesup, GA! I attempted to get on your visitor list and your ministry mailed me a form to fill out which I completed and submitted to the Jesup facility but I suppose it was lost in translation or you already had too many visitors on the roster already. I hope you are doing well. I’m glad you are finally back in the “zone” and doing what you do best, Preaching the Word of God to the Lost! Have a great move and hope to see you back in Dinosaur Adventure Land in no time!
