wherever we go into the dark, we bear the light of Christ’s love. Millions of Christians are doing just that.

ANNIE HOWARD is a case in point. In 1991 she was awarded one of President Bush’s “Thousand Points of Light” awards for her Prison Fellowship volunteer work in the Kentucky Correctional Institute for Women. She help choir practice in the prison chapel, had an evening Bible study, and hosted a dinner for six volunteers in her home---all in one evening! All the women at the prison know Annie. They know she doesn’t get paid to do this. They know she loves them. It doesn’t matter to her what they have done. She treats them all equally. This is dangerous work. She feels the presence of Satan. She feels the battle for people’s souls---;like a battle between darkness and light.

The award Annie received from the president is a heavy medallion with a stylized candle on it. It’s on a gold chain, designed to be worn around her neck. But Annie doesn’t need to wear it for people to see her light. They know she represents Jesus. They can see Him shining through her.
