Mr. and Mrs Jonathan Bond of Young harmony
I hope that I am not oversteping my boundries by writing to you, but I wanted you to know that God is using you to change lives. I am in the state pen in Nevada, we are required on sunday to attend either a church service with a local pastor or we can as a whole choose to watch a christian video. On one certain sunday, about 30 guys went to the church service and the other 394 inmates decided to watch this music video that someone had mailed. The video was called magnify. We watched mainly to say that we had done the church thing that is required. but during that church thing, somethning amazing happened. while you were sharing your testimony about how god brought you through your car accident, everyone was completely quite, and when you started singing a song about starting over. I know that I was feeling the presence of god and I began to hear people crying, then shouting and as I looked around people that I have never seen acknowledge god were on there knees. there were people standing with hands raised to god. that prison suddenly felt like a castle. god himself came to visit us at the bottom of the hill. thank you for letting god use you. lives are being changed.

I won’t keep you any longer, but I would love to hear from you sometime. maybe even see you in 5 years or so *a little prison humor

Never under-estimate the POWER OF GOD! Everywhere you go, HE is there! SO KOOL! I just wanted to share blessing this with you.
There are a couple of things that I would love to ask of each of you, if possible.
1) Please take a moment and check out our schedule at We just may be closer to you than you think and would love to see you.
2) Pray with us that our current radio release, My Life Is In Your Hands is used greatly to remind the church that we should trust HIM with everything.
Your prayers are greatly needed as we do what HE has called us to do. Thank you for both standing with us and kneeling for us.

Your friend
Johnathan Bond
