Armando Acosta Founder of Immanuel Motorcycle Prison Ministry tells his story about his life and the assistance of Chaplain Fernando Charles II as they both visit prisons to share the Gospel.

About Free By The Truth Ministry

Mission

We exist specifically to provide a compassionate recovery community for returning residents (men & women coming out of prison) who are willing to take responsibility for themselves and to learn to make good choices while striving for success.

Vision

The vision of Free By The Truth Ministry, Inc. is to be part of God’s plan to reconcile the world to Himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. II Corinthians 5:19 Our mission is to create a community here in San Antonio of the formerly incarcerated and their families who will help each other to lead abundant lives in Christ. Our plan is to help men and women by showing them how to Love God, Love People, and Disciple Others.

What We Believe

It is through my own experience with my encounter with God, how His truth has been revealed to me and has Set Me Free! I have seen the same experience in others who have come to know God in their life. How does this happen? I have been asked when I talk about our main verse for our ministry name. “How does John 8:31-32 apply to me? I say it this way, I’m a christian but i am still afflicted with the sin in my life”, I still struggle and wrestle with sin every single day. The bible tell me that I am a sinner. (Romans 3:23) But I strive to live my life to follow Jesus everyday. We can do this through the power of God.

John 8:31-32, “Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings”. “And you will know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH will set you FREE”.

The reason why people are going through so much in their lives is because they are not adding both verses together in their life. Jesus was talking to believers, Christians or followers of Christ, that if they remained faithful to his teaching, they were truly Jesus’ disciples. In verse 31 Jesus used the big word, “IF”, this is huge because we have to make a choice in our life if we are going to follow Jesus or we are not.

This goes for us as well, if we remain faithful to God he will remain faithful to us. We must choose to follow Jesus and when we do the truth of his word becomes real in our lives.

John 15:5, “I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing”.

When we know the Truth of God’s Word, our mind is open to understand what God’s will is for our life. And we are changed and no longer want to be the same, but live a changed life.

Romans 12:2, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will”.

When we choose to follow God, he changes us from the inside out. This ministry is so important. I have seen how God has changed the lives of men on the Prison Unit. Because of this relationship with God, They no longer want to go back to their old life of crime, drugs, sin, and things they used to do. So please join me and let’s together share the love of God with others, so that God can change lives, save families, and mend broken relationships and keep them from going back to prison.

Episode 99 | Music Artist Keedren Boston

Published

By

Back again today is Music Artist Keedren Boston!

Bio:

Husband, Father of 4 children, Youth Pastor, Educator, actor, comedian and Urban Gospel artist, Keedren Boston, often referred to as “BossTon” began his music career as an R&B singer/rapper but soon laid down the secular mic to pick up the cross. “One day”, Keedren says, “I woke up and realized that I could only remember darkness…It’s hard to see in darkness period, but there’s no darkness like being spiritually blind and that’s what I was.” This marked the beginning of a new and Christ centered life for Keedren.

Keedren is definitely known for his “out-of-the-box” ministry amongst the people in his hometown of San Antonio, Texas and various other cities around the state. Keedren has been blessed to minister across the U.S. and out of the country as well. He has shared stages with artists such as Deitrick Haddon, Earnest Pugh, Wes Morgan, Tasha Page Lockhart, Keith Pringle, Lee Williams and various Christian Hip Hop artists. BossTon toured England in 2009 and 2010 ministering through music to the youth and young adults for the “Christ Up Kingdom” UK Tour. He also ministered throughout New Zealand alongside his great friends from the UK. That trip, “Best of Both Worlds Mission & Tour” (2014) included Pastor Greg Husband, Pastor Paul and Jacqueline Davis. Also included on that tour was one of his best friends, (brother-in-Christ) Greg “Puntin” Cooks.

His freshman album and single entitled “Not About Me” quickly became his mission statement in his commitment to God and his ministry to the world. With the release of his sophomore album entitled “He Changed Me” Keedren felt led to write about how God has changed and delivered him from the ways of his past, and how God is able to do it again and again for anyone who will believe and accept Christ into their life. Keedren is set to release a new EP entitled “Walk On Water” that hopes to inspire others to step out in faith, put their trust in Jesus and get out of the boat of their comfort zone and do what may seem like the impossible; that is to “Walk On Water”. He, along side his wife serve as the Chldrens Pastors at Christian World Worship Center in San Antonio, Texas.

Keedren continues to travel and minister from city to city and outreach to outreach spreading the message of change and salvation through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is easy to see the transparency and genuine passion that flows naturally through Keedren’s gifts. He is truly on a mission to see the souls of men and women saved and to inspire and encourage those who already are saved to keep the faith and continue to trust in the one true and living God.

Today’s guest is Myunique C. Green

Book: To Mend a Broken Heart

Description: “I just want to write the words as I feel them bleeding from this old heart of mine…”

Bad memories are never really forgotten. Just suppressed under the mountain of lies we’ve told ourselves, so that the painful ones are easier to bear. I remember a lot, and my life has been emotionless for a long time. I recall watching as my mother was beaten bloody in front of me, and then, as if I were old news, I was cast away. Until now, I’ve been patching the holes in my heart with band-aids; but I’m ready to feel again. So that true healing can finally begin.

Women are wonderfully made with a heart that can easily accommodate and deal with several life challenges. While some can outlive or outgrow these negative experiences to become better adults, others are not so lucky and usually live their lives in the shadow of their past experiences and memories. Dedicated to the girls who turned into broken women, To Mend a Broken Heart is a guide to growth, healing and learning to love again. Now a TOP 100 Bestseller in Love & Relationships, Self-Help!
