What Students Say

  • I wanna thank my mentors – past, present and future. I look forward to your uplifting and encouraging words. Tonight, I add you in my prayers. Thanks to a mentor for suggesting the book of Daniel – what an awesome story! Thanks to another mentor for suggesting the book of John – this was my first introduction to the gospels! I suggest it as a starting point to new and developing Christians. I said this once and will say it again – I no longer just read my Bible – it holds a conversation with me. My best friend is the living Word!

    Tyrone, BC
  • 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
  • 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
  • I cannot say it enough how thankful and grateful I am to have these courses in my life. As I work on turning my life over to God more completely and consistently, I pray that I absorb the Lord’s wisdom and His will!

    Brent, 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
  • 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
  • I now realize that me coming to jail saved my life and I have learnt so much about our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Now I have a purpose in my life. I want to help others and bring joy in their lives too and show them how great it is when you trust God in all your affairs.

    Daniel, AB
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • As I do more Crossroads lessons, I learn more about myself and the ways that I need to work on myself — but more importantly I learn more about God and how to allow God to live through me.

    Mark, ON
  • This ministry opens doors to many hearts. Men sit in their cells, around tables, in their houses and even at work, working on these devotions. God’s seeds are being planted. May we see a great harvest for the kingdom of the Lord.

    Terry, SK
  • 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
  • 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
