We have just completed prison outreaches on both the North and South Islands of New Zealand where we visited twenty prisons and gave out a total of 9,045 hygiene bags to the inmates. We saw many of the inmates reading books that we gave them from Joyce. The gratitude from the inmates and the wardens was incredible. We were treated to a full Maori song and dance routine by the inmates, which the leader stated was to honor Dave, Joyce and us for thinking of them. The prison manager told us that this has never been done to this extent before and he was totally surprised. What a privilege it is to be able to visit these souls and show them the love of God and offer them the freedom that only Jesus can give!
