What Students Say

  • I believe the Lord brought me to jail to show me my past life and how wrong it was. He did it for me.. for the best. He wanted me to come to him. It’s been a long walk but I’m not tired. I know He is with me and He’s guiding me. I have completed Tier 1 and Tier 2 courses and I’m eager to start Tier 3 courses to learn more about the Lord.

    Darya, ON
  • I am grateful for these lessons and I am glad I’m truly becoming closer to the Lord Jesus. It feels good getting letters from the Crossroads’ mentors. I love the feeling I get when I see a Crossroads envelope!

    Rob, AB
  • Thank you for teaching me. I know it’s all God that teaches me what I need to learn but you guys definitely help God’s message get to me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am towards God and Crossroads.

    Eric, AB
  • I would like to say thank you very much for everything you have done for me. You have been there for me, for my bible study and just been there for me. Also you have been making my relationship with God much stronger and have given me hope.

    P, Saskatchewan
  • What an amazing journey this has been so far! Thanks to Jesus, we not only know more about what God is like, but we also have a way of forgiveness through a relationship with Jesus Christ. We can know the One who made us, and we can spend the rest of our lives experi- encing His power and enjoying His love. Thanks so much Crossroads and mentors for your help and encouragement along my journey.

    Darrel, ON
  • One day I picked up a Bible and started reading. Then I started doing the study courses. I ask God for help every morning, I give Him thanks every night, I help others without looking for anything in return. Life is good!

    Christopher, ON
  • Thank you very much for your words of encouragement and insight. You are all doing a terrific job and I thank-you from the bottom of my heart.

    John, ON
  • I want to thank my mentors and all my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus at Crossroads ministries for all their support and encouragement. The letters sent to me by my mentors inspire me. I believe these studies have truly helped me establish myself in God’s Word and also made me a better person.

    Warren, BC
  • While studying the Bible through Crossroad’s Bible study, I have learned that I am never alone. God is always there with me through my happiness and grief. Tier 1 helped me better understand what the Bible means and how it can help me in my daily life. In Tier 2 I hope to further my knowledge!

    Jenny, ON
  • Crossroads not only helped Jesus reach me and bring me closer to Him, but their Bible studies, artwork, poems, and mentors all helped bring me peace. Through Christ, with the help of Crossroads, I am a better person and am growing in Christ each day. I love being a Christian and I love my Lord, Jesus Christ. Thank you, Crossroads.

    Michael, ON
  • When I came to jail, I hit rock bottom. I was very sad and depressed and full of anxiety. After being in here for about a year, I was introduced to the Crossroads Bible Studies. I became a Christian in jail and it has helped me a lot. I believe God led me to Him.

    Meranda, BC
  • My financée is willing to give her life to Jesus and begin living a happy beautiful life. She’d like to start the Bible study courses. She needs a Bible and everything to begin her studies. Thank you for helping me change my life and now for helping her. And thanks for allowing me to continue my growth and relationship with God.

    Scott, ON
  • I am thankful for Crossroads and I believe that these studies have truly helped me establish myself in God’s Word and also made me a better person. I am thankful for my mentors and their support. The letters sent to me by my mentors inspire me. God bless you all.

    Warren, ON
  • My friend gave me a Manga Messiah lesson after the chaplain gave him 2 of the same lessons. These lessons brought me hope when hope was lost. In my time of sadness, I look forward to doing these lessons. I look at my faith with new eyes. The past is gone and I will not hold on to it — I am moving forward.

    Chris, QC
  • These courses are great and I am learning a lot about the Bible through the Crossroads studies. Also, thank you for the letters you send me. They truly help and I learn quite a bit from each one.

    John, AB
  • The phrase “being born again” means to me that I am recycled… renewed… reborn… that I got a fresh start… a restart… I am new again… a new you…another shot at life!!!

    Tanner, BC
  • I was blown away to see this questionnaire. Not many people want to help an ex-criminal, but I’ve noticed over the last few months that God truly works in mysterious ways. Thank you for reaching out to me and trying to help a brother in Christ.

    Joel, AB
  • Thank you for taking time out of your own time and caring enough about my life and salvation. Knowing that there are others who care, makes me feel not alone. I think Crossroads is a great program and
    I look forward to finish all the courses, even after I get out of jail.

    Jason, AB
  • Working on the studies, Great Truths of the Bible and Survey of the Bible, helped me grow spiritually by setting a habit of prayer. It influenced my Christian identity and allowed me to constantly be witnessed by others. The letters and courses coming to me in the mail had other inmates noticing how often I had “outside mail” and how I was always reading in the Bible. God put me in a position of being forced to depend on Him, which I am hugely grateful for – I owe God everything!

    Kyle, AB
  • Your letter means so much to me. I placed it in my Bible where I can read it every day. Keep up the good work. I appreciate it so much. Your letters are a boost of confidence for me that someone is out there praying for me and my family. Thank you.
