Who We Are
AAJM is a free literature distribution ministry of Mark & Gloria Chapman. In December of 1980 Mark murdered the former Beatle John Lennon. Mark recommitted his life to Christ in '82 and wrote his testimony. He also wrote a short story about a man who meets Jesus in prison.
In 2012 we also started the Hungry African Prisoners Project to help raise funds to feed prisoners who get very little food in Africa, starting with Kenya.
Our mission statement is "Helping prison ministries put Jesus between the bars." Our vision is to have Mark's testimony and short story translated into many different languages so that inmates in countries around the world can read about the life-changing love of Christ. Whether God uses our materials to plant seeds or reap a harvest, our desire is to bring inmates closer to Jesus. It's all about Jesus.

A 3rd tract about Mark's sharing Jesus at his 7th parole board hearing in 2012 is also available.
