Testimony: Reverend Pat Shelton

by The Gideons International on August 21, 2015

For 27 years, a Gideon visited Pat Shelton in jail. Each time, the Gideon told Pat, “Jesus loves you, and I love you.”

One day, Pat decided to read the Bible the Gideon gave him, and God changed Pat’s heart. Today, Reverend Pat Shelton leads a prison ministry that has seen over 500 prisoners surrender to the Lord. Watch Reverend Pat’s story about the power of compassion and persistence of Gideons who serve the Lord through jail ministry.

I had the privilege of personally talking to Pat at an Pastor appreciation luncheon two years ago. A powerful testimony that only God could have changed Pat into the person he is today. I praise God for what he did in Pat.

What an awesome testimony to what Jesus can do through faithful, persevering Gideons, but most of all, through His Holy Word!

Men of compassionate heart = souls for Christ. Who Loves Me? Yes his name is in the bible.

Who Love’s Me? Pat reflects what nearly all trouble folks are asking today. The last
tragedy in Oregon, the shooter, no girl friend! Who Loves Me? We gotta press on.

Great work has been done by the GIDEONS pastors should always give a upper hand to support this ministry because many are being transformed by His word. may the Lord bless Gideons wherever they are.
