Awesome radio interview last Friday with Manny Mill on Mark Elfstrand’s program, “Let Talk” – here’s the 20 minute “conversation” about Cuba – take a listen.
WHO IS GREATER THAN I?
This was the pointed question that Eugene Tanniehill — sentenced to death in the electric chair — heard very clearly as he sat alone in his death-row cell in Angola Prison.
“Tanniehill, who is greater than I?” — the question came again to the man who eventually would spend 52 years at Angola, in later years becoming known as the “Bishop” — the “chaplain of chaplains” at this maximum-strength prison.
In this powerful video segment, Bishop Tanniehill tells his powerful story of redemption and God’s love that started with that audible voice to a group of inmates at Lake County Jail in northern Illinois, recorded when he visited Manny and Barbara Mill this summer.
Rarely, if ever, are video camera allowed in prisons or jails, so this film is extraordinary in many ways. Please feel free to share with your church, in small groups, with pastors and church leaders, to demonstrate the impact of God’s Love and opportunity of in-prison ministry.
You are about to have a front-row seat on redemption!

“WHEN YOU FEEL GOD’S LOVE, YOU DO WHAT IT TAKES. YOU ARE WILLING TO LAY DOWN YOUR LIFE FOR OTHERS.”
Such is the way that Manny Mill describes what has driven the Koinonia House of Wheaton ministry over the 25 years since its founding in 1991. Join Manny and Barbara Mill on the front porch of the “K House” — the house where former prisoners experience spiritual discipleship, bible study, and life skills training over 12-18 months as they prepare to lead productive lives.
In this video story, Manny and Barbara look back on the earliest days of the ministry, and share their hopes and aspirations from the very beginning.
As we celebrate our 25th year, please share your own stories on this page about the ministry. And share this video segment with others who might be interested in our ministry. Over coming weeks, watch this site for additional stories!
This coming weekend, our faithful, victorious FREEDOM GOD’S WAY team will be at Jacksonville Correctional. Please pray for them radically as they reach out to our neighbors behind those walls.
