wonderful family and friends to support me. - Ebby

I came to your service Christmas-time for the 1st time expecting to find something real. I prayed
and believed and that prayer request came to pass. Thank You...from a Muslim!

I was so messed up in the head I started liking girls in 6th grade. I then got into a relationship with a
woman who put a needle in my arms and beat me also this last 8 years because she wouldn't let me
go. I have walked through these prison walls hoping to find a companionship but I find God...I let
my walls down in Jerico, everything I had been carrying around with me that hurt me so, I let Him
have it. I learned now by God's compassionate and unfailing love, I can cry and feel. He has brought
me to a place I've been trying to get to for a while and that's with Him! - Tina

He has put a wonderful woman and man of God in our life. I want to thank Him again for Sister
Doris and Brother Larry that they have taken their time out to come and give us the Word of our
God. I myself, and the other ladies here in Lockhart gets many a blessing out of the Word; not only
the Word but the truth from the Word. There's no sugar coating on it or anything - just straight up
Word. - Linda

God bless you and keep you. You have saved alot of souls through your ministry. Keep up the good
work. Love - Latresa

At the age of 32, I realized I have tried everything but you God. On December 30...as I sit in
church, I hear you tell me I need to follow the voice of Brother Larry Sample as he speak right to
my heart. Although my flesh tried to not listen to Sister Doris as she prepared me for this moment,
the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said Yes!, my child, it is I whom is calling you. So I went up and
gave myself to You Lord. - Tracey

Our names are Pamela and Cynthia. We are currently incarcerated at the Lockhart Unit. We have
become fast friends and sisters in Christ in the short time we have known each other. We have a friend
here with us who is also a part of our sisterhood and her name is Karen. Karen's husband had
developed gall stones that passed through and severely damaged his pancreas which landed him in
the I.C.U. (Intensive Care Unit) His pancreas levels were well over 500, while the norm is under 100. He
had difficulty breathing and heart problems and infections that antibiotics could not cure and was being
fed intravenously. The doctors exhausted all options and there was nothing left they could do, and they
didn't believe he would live. At this point he had been in the hospital for 3 weeks and lost 45 pounds.
Cynthia and I had started attending Bible Study with Pastors Larry and Doris Sample. They are an
extraordinary couple. They put so much love and passion intoi what they do for the Lord and for us.
The Holy Spirit is evident in the both of them. They have such a tremendous amount of faith that is so
contagious and we could see that was the case with all the ladies who attended service. We knew by
their testimonies that God was working miracles amongst them. We knew that we had to get Karen to
attend service with us and she did. Karen stood a proxy for her husband and we all prayed over her.
You see we know a mighty God who is also our Chief Physician, our Protector, a God of miracles, grace
and unlimited favor. Nothing is too impossible for our God. The Lord says in Matthew 18:19-20,
"Again,
I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my
Father in Heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there I am with them."
Glory be to
God. Thank you Lord Jesus, because just a few days after we prayed for Karen's husband he was
released from the hospital and today he is back to his normal daily routine of life, taking care of his
infant grandson. I just want to first and foremost thank God, the Samples and all our faithful sisters at
Lockhart. - 7/2014

Pastor Larry & Pastor Doris...The pamphlet you all send me I am so thankful for the articles you all
write. It's like I am acting out each character. Every newsletter have several main points. It makes you
think how blessed I am and where I came from to this day. I learn to put God first and everything else
falls in place. I thank God moreso when things are going wrong, than when things are going right. Your
Mom is awesome. Your mom lives a Holy life. Your mom got the kind of forgiveness that heals a
wounded heart. Your mom was the very first that taught me about putting 512 before a local telephone
number. Merle loves her family dearly. She has a hearty laugh like a parrot. You all are obedient to the
Lord, you all open many hearts with love and forgiveness. Thanks for being part of my life. Darla 2014

I just want to say that you both inspire me to be a better wife, mother and over-all person. Thank you
for your prayers and service. I made parole Yea! Love Pamela 2014

Pastors Larry & Doris - you always write such many, many articles on Jesus . You show me our time to
honor God. Learn to be good and faithful servant of our Lord, cause we are a representative of God.
Learn to be compassionate and merciful. When I'm devastated, in hateful and selfish ways, I learned
the redeemer Jesus Christ will forgive me if I ask Him for forgiveness. I thank you kindly for your
knowledge of the Lord. Darla

shown. - Pullins

I love you guys and I pray for continual blessings and glory for the both of you. Never think that you are
not appreciated. I was yearning for fellowship outside my dorm when I arrived here at Lockhart, and I
found it the first night that I entered your service. I have kept notes from each Bible Study that I have
attended so I will re-read those notes and follow-up with scripture to keep myself spiritually fed. Keep
doing the work of the Lord because your ministry is a blessing to so many people. - Tammy

I have been coming to the Sample's service for 11 months, 2 hours a week. During this time I have
learned more about the love of God, than I have all my life. I am 43 years old, and for the first time in
my life, I have an intimate relationship with God. He is raining down blessings and performing miracles
in my life. The Samples are so anointed! God speaks strait through them. They taught me how to pray,
forgive, and have faith. God bless you - love Fonda
