Jailbird Evangelist!

Peter Slany is a young man from Teen Challenge, a Christian drug/alcohol addiction rehabilitation centre. Before entering the program, Peter had been convicted of a crime, and a couple months ago, he began his jail term. He was a little nervous about going to prison, he had given his life to Christ and was afraid of slipping back into that old lifestyle. But, now we see that he has done the exact opposite. While in jail he feels himself growing closer to God, and he even led one of his fellow in-mates to Christ! Peter's last name, Slany, means "salty". We can see that he is living up to his name by being salt and light, even in prison! Please continue to pray for Peter as he continues his sentence.
