What Do Others Have To Say

About Using The Challenge News Paper?

How does it help them to share a message of hope?

Vance Pitman

Written testimonies from readers/users of the paper:

- From Prisoners
"As I look into the mirror I find a stained image. One who has spent many a moon in his own bondage as you can tell by the return address. I needed to tell you what your newspaper has meant to me. To say this will cause me to drop a few points in my “gangsta” hood, but so be it. Reading what so many souls were saying about God well, it seemed as if I could hear them speaking into my soul. It made me wonder if there is life or hope for someone like me. I don’t deserve it as I’ve left nothing in my wake but heartache and pain. My only claim to fame-crime. I have wasted 40 years of my life. You have taken a harden man and given him hope. Your newspaper has made a difference in at least one life. You’ve given me sunshine where there was once so much darkness. I am not asking for you to feel my pain but simply to remember my chains." - Prisoner D. in Alabama

- From Chaplains
"I received the Challenge News Paper today. Without a doubt it is one of the best new papers that I have received at this Chapel. It is well written and gives inmate’s activities which they enjoy and need. Thank you for sending it and please send it to us on a regular basis."
Alan “Bo” Hammock, Senior Chaplain Suwannee C.I. Annex

- From Missionaries
"On Wednesday we handed out 11,000 papers in the downtown part of Cordoba and another 8,000 papers at the end of the Ecuador-Brazil game. This game also started at 9:45pm (ending at 11:15pm) but everyone liked the idea of being up past midnight handing out the Challenge paper."
- Will Herndon, Score Missionary

- From Christians
"I took my daughters for ice-cream. We placed a couple pf papers on tables then sat back and watched people pick them up to read them. I am not confident in sharing my faith but we were so excited to see how we could share the paper so easily and people could hear about Jesus." - Joel, Everyday Dad

- From Pastors
“We distributed copies of the paper to Peace Makers Fellowship church and at Kolweny Market. We had distributed 8,000 copies within less than an hour. People rushed to get the paper. They came on motorbikes, bikes and on foot just to get a copy. We bless the Lord as many people have called us just to testify how the paper has blessed them.” - Pastor Paul Dondoh in Nyakatch, Kenya
