A Day in the (Prison) Life of Kent Hovind
Written on January 19, 2012
Five years ago today I was sentenced to ten years in federal prison — three of them for praying for a man on the radio and five of them for taking our own ministry money out of our own ministry bank account to pay the ministry bills! Whoda’ thought it could happen in America? It actually might be funny if it were not happening to me!
The case is still on appeal at the 11th circuit as well as motions to the district court. I still maintain my integrity and innocence as did scores of Bible characters like Joseph, Job, Paul, etc. God has been s-o-o-o-o-o good during this time of captivity! I see now why He often let the heathen take His children into captivity or prison even though they had done nothing to deserve it. (See Jeremiah 37, 38, Ezekiel 1, Daniel 1, etc.) This whole experience has changed me in a thousand ways (all good I hope) and I pray I will be even more useful for Him when I get out. The time to read, pray, meditate, rest, and write is great! (I’m rested Lord! Can I go home now?)
Anyway, many have asked what a typical day for me in the prison is like; s-o-o-o-o-o, here is the schedule of a typical day in my prison life:
- 4:00 am Woke up and listened to coasttocoastam.com radio show for 30 minutes. I’ve been guest on that program a few times. They have a wide range of folks as guests and often it is good stuff! I often wake up between 3-5 am and listen to part of that program.
- 4:30 am Back to sleep for an hour and a half of the sweetest sleep of the night!
- 6:00 am Up, dressed, and walk to chow hall for breakfast and to drop off outgoing mail before 7:00 am.
- 6:45 am Met one of the 20+ new inmates arriving at the prison to help orient him to where things are and what he is to do.
- 7:10 am Shower and clean room.
- 7:30 am Meet with several of the new converts I am discipling for daily Bible reading. Read Genesis 24 and had a great discussion! That is one of my favorite chapters! The father sent the servant to the far country to get a bride for his only son. Sounds like God sending the Holy Spirit to earth to get a bride for Christ! That will preach! (See “Where’s The Bride?” DVD.)
- 8:00 am Sign in at education even though I don’t teach till 1:30.
- 8:05 am Spent more time showing the new guy how the email and phone work and gave him a quick tour of the camp.
- 8:25 am Print out labels for tomorrow’s mail. We are only allowed to print five labels per day.
- 8:30 am Answered letters back in the room.
- 9:50 am Check and answer email and drop off about a dozen letters to mail. Walk a mile and work out with small weights to rebuild my torn rotator cuff from softball injury while I was in Edgefield, SC almost two years ago! You’ll find out when you get old!
- 10:15 am Back to room to rest till lunch call. (I love and practice Psalm 4:4!)
- 10:45 am Call to lunch. Fried Chicken. Food here is pretty good! NOT as good as the wife can cook though! Miss THAT BAD!
- 11:15 am Back to dorm to read and rest. There are no bars or fences here and we are free to walk to other buildings on the prison camp compound most of the day.
- 12:00 pm Send and receive email again and go to law library to type on various projects.
- 1:00 pm Took a short break to walk half mile and work out shoulder again. It is a beautiful day today — 60 degrees, very sunny and WINDY! Typical high desert weather.
- 1:10 pm Back to typing projects.
- 1:30 pm Teach GED math class. This is both a blessing and a real eye opener! Many others have documented the planned, deliberate decline in the American public school system so I will simply add my voice to say, “Wow! What a problem! What a lack of learning!“
- 2:30 pm Go to commissary to get my shopping list of little things needed here. The BOP marks up everything sold to inmates 30%. (Search the web for who profits from this!) Most guys get paid $.12 per hour which equals between $6 and $20 per month. I make $17 per month for teaching in the GED classes. Not bad for fifteen year’s experience and five post graduate degrees! (I thought Abe Lincoln fought a big war to stop slave labor. Somebody needs to notify these folks!)
- 2:50 pm Worked typing legal paperwork. I’ve been trying to get my legal files that were kept in Edgefield, SC when I was taken out of that prison nineteen months ago! The prison in Edgefield still has not sent them to me, and now the courts claim that I was late filing my 2255 motion! More bureaucratic insanity!
- 3:15 pm Checked and answered email.
- 3:30 pm Went to gym for Mail Call. I received 12 letters! What a blessing! See Proverbs 25:25. I wish everyone got some mail. Call the Creation Today office for a list of men who need encouragement via mail. 850-479-3466.
- 3:45 pm “Town Hall” meeting in the gym for the Assistant Camp Administrator to tell us some of the guys are not keeping their room clean enough. I know a great way to solve that problem — send us all home!
- 4:00 pm Line up for Count Time in the dorms.
- 4:10 pm Read mail and take a ten-minute nap!
- 4:45 pm Supper time.
- 6:00 pm For over four years I have been working on another degree. The last requirement is the writing of another dissertation. I have been writing this during the past several years. I was about 90% finished, and was having it mailed back to me for the final proof and additions before I submitted to the school. The mail room here sent the rough draft back saying that because I did not take the courses offered here at the prison, I could not receive it. For the last six months I have filed papers back and forth with prison officials requesting that I be allowed to be given all my mail. I could write a book on the ridiculous obstacles the prison officials have put in my way but then, Nehemiah, Moses, and a host of others had problems to overcome as well. It sure seems like someone, maybe Satan, does NOT want this information to be printed! The dissertation is based on II Peter 3 where the scoffers are ignorant of the creation, the flood, and the coming judgment. I’ll keep trying!
- 6:30 pm I did something I VERY rarely do — I watched the last half of the movie shown in the chapel on Thursday night. It was “Angels in the Outfield.” VERY STUPID! Now I remember why I don’t do this!
- 7:30 pm Had Bible study with several of the young converts here. Wow! It is great to watch them grow in the Lord! God has let me lead about 15 men to Christ in the last two months! Creation Today has a list of their names. If God leads you, please send letters, one gospel tract and KJV Bibles to these men!
- 9:40 pm Back to the dorm to check email.
- 10:00 pm Count time — again!
- 10:20 pm Read till sleepy.
This entire prison system is a HUGE waste of time, energy and money! Why would America host 5% of the world’s population and yet host 25% of the world’s prisoners? Hmmmm? Maybe because the politicians and judges are allowed to own stock in the prison industries? There are lots of simple suggestions to fix this problem in The Kennel by Elijah Green that is posted someplace on line. When I become king, I’m shutting this place down! Do you honestly think that the politicians and justice department employees who profit from this prison system that destroys families will vote to scale it back or shorten prison times? See I Timothy 6:10 for the answer! There is plenty of legislation proposed each year to help fix the problems, but it almost always dies in committee.
Meanwhile, I’ll just keep winning souls and discipling them like the Lord commanded. Please pray Acts 12:5 style for my release and for the growth of these new converts. As usual I have lots of paperwork in the courts that could set me free.
