Leland Maples runs the LOOP’s Ministries (Loved Ones Of Prisoners) and leads a Thursday night bible study held in the Rec Room at Life Change Baptist Church in Odessa Texas. The Rec Room message on Thursday, December 11, 2014 was entitled “Christmas – God’s Gift” and was given by Leland. Special music was by Charles Reynolds.
The message referenced the scriptures in 2 Corinthians 9:15 KJV. The message taught these four points:
- God gave a gift
- God’s gift was wrapped
- God’s gift was hung on a tree
- God’s gift must be received
2 Corinthians 9:15 KJV
15 Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.
