Jesus' Work in Heaven: Intercession
"Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.

Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."
- Hebrews 4:14–16 (NASB)

Eternal Security of Believers
"And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.

- Revelation 22:18–19 (NASB)

Rejoice Transforming Ministries cares about women in prison.

  After a Christian Family Chapel missions’ presentation called “Prisoners for Christ”10 years ago, Ina Blume (she got married in 2009, now DeGram) was invited by Bill Wright to join him and his wife to share the message of hope in the confinement units at Lowell Correctional Institution.  Bill at the time was a volunteer and has now become Senior Chaplain at Lawtey C.I., Lawtey, Florida.

  That prison visit in April 2000 was an inspiration to Ina and she ended up establishing a women’s prison ministry 9 months later that would be totally dedicated to Lowell C.I./Annex.

RTM’s goal has been to saturate this prison, now approximately 2,800 inmates, with God’s Word in as many creative ways as possible: 
Christian based movies
Monthly mailings include:
          Bible study, "Ask Ina", Let's Look At God's Word/Skit page, 5 Scripture cards
Writing contest
Mentoring through personal visitation
Bible Study processing
Monthly (more in depth discipleship) for new believers
Weekly prayer group
Email prayer group

We are also in the beginning stages of reaching out to our life sentenced women.  Many are already strong believers who hunger to have a purpose
for living. 
We are a non-profit (501C3) ministry completely dependent on donations. 
The prison keeps growing larger which means we need more funds to
continue reaching the whole population. 

How can you help?

         Wednesday morning prayer group.

RTM  Mission Statement

RTM's purpose is to share the gospel message and to pray that all the inmates at Lowell Correctional institution/Annex would come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior.  This would result in Lowell becoming an all-Christian prison.

And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." - Matthew 28:18-20

And He said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day, and that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And behold, I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high". - Luke 24:46-49

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth." - Acts 1:8

By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. - I John 4:13-14
