MAILBAG Leland loved his Lord and served him faithfully. Many will miss him. We celebrate his life and his new life with Jesus. Don Gibson Thank you for letting me know. We will certainly be praying for Linda and the family.  He had a great impact in the kingdom of God. He will be sorely missed! Pastor Ivy Shelton I will be there to pay my respects for sure.  Not a greater man I know concerning the care for the down and out.  I’m sure his crowns were waiting on him and he gave them right back to Jesus.  When I grow up, I want to be just like him!!! Steve Southern I figured this was coming soon.  I cannot explain how much I loved and admired him. He turned on so many lights for me in scripture. At the moment I think of his son, Michael and the lightning bolts Leland found in his Bible in the first chapter of Ephesians, after he was killed. I cannot imagine the greeting line in heaven for Leland; he touched so many lives. Jerry & Diane Scott I am SO sad!!! But I know who is in control and His strength is going to carry you in the days, weeks and until He takes the rest of us home. Very sorry we can’t be there. Buck Wilcox I’m so sorry. We loved Leland, all of us.  Love you and are continuing to pray for your peace and strength. Scott & Sumer Curry & Family Leland left a remarkable handprint on many lives for Christ. Denton Taylor “Special thanks to all of you that sent words of comfort, encouragement and strength.”

REC-ROOM MESSAGES ON THE INTERNET In 2003 we began a weekly meeting we called the REC-Room (REC meaning Re-Entry Chapel.)  Through the LOOPS in-prison seminars we learned that many people who became Christians in prison were prone to return to the old life after being released.  Since most of the new Christians were not from church backgrounds, they had no idea of what to look for in a church.  With the help of some ex-inmates we started a weekly meeting that was to be a bridge to local churches.  The meeting consists of refreshments, music, a speaker and fellowship.  Along with presenting the gospel, we worked at finding employment opportunities, vocational training, transportation and financial assistance. Northside Bible Church in Oklahoma City asked us to tape these programs and they are now placing them on their website, RightDivision.com.  You can find the programs under the Leland Maples Audio Lessons link: https://rightdivision.com/contributors/leland-maples/lessons and at https://vimeo.com/channels/loopsministry
