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, February 16, 2017 was a special message by Leland Maples entitled “Perhaps”. Special music was by Life Change Baptist Church Band.
