Inmate Accepts Christ While Listening to Billy Graham on Radio

‘You’re supposed to be in solitary confinement by yourself, but it was me and Jesus.’ 

Jon Ponder spent 37 years living life his own way—he was involved with a gang, abused drugs and committed crime. After his arrest, the bank robber heard a Billy Graham message on the radio and began a relationship with God. 

Jon shares his story on this episode of GPS: God. People. Stories.
