    I was shoulder to shoulder with Carl in Wabash Correctional Facility as we watched the Holy Spirit introduce men to Jesus, break curses that had enslaved their families for generations. Our God knows what he’s doing, but I’d always expected to have another chance to lead more souls to our savior with Carl. I miss my brother, but to God be the glory – Carl doesn’t miss this world at all.
