What These Former Inmates did to thank Cops sends BlackLivesMatter a Brutal Message

By

“I want to just be able to put Christ on display,” said Torrance Wilson, a former inmate & member of C.H.A.R.M. Prison Ministry. 

“We’ve always made things dirty in life whether with family, with relationships, because we were outside of Christ, as a sign of being clean and washed and made new,” said Tommie Anderson, a former inmate & member of C.H.A.R.M. Prison Ministry. “That’s what we’re doing on display today is actually cleaning up what’s dirty.”

“I knew it wasn’t their fault. They had a job to do. They had a family like I had and so the Lord just really softened my heart towards law enforcement, and that they put their lives on the line each and every day for us,” Wilson said.

About 40 former inmates braved the heat and sacrificed their Sunday to give a small form of recognition to law enforcement by washing their cars.

“It’s a service they wanted to provide to us,” said Houston Police Captain Michael Faulhaber. 

Faulhaber says it’s touching to see their transformations.

Ex-inmates washing police cars? What a great idea! About 40 former prisoners wanted to show their appreciation to law enforcement, so they got together on Sunday to wash their cars. One of them said, “We’ve always made things dirty in life whether with family, with relationships, because we were outside of Christ,” and now he said they were doing this “as a sign of being clean and washed and made new.” That’s fantastic. The change these men have gone through is possible only by faith in Jesus Christ and through His transforming power.

The Bible tells us, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new” (2 Cor. 5:17).
