Prison Ministry

This was truly a life changing outreach. Puerto Rico will never be the same!

One of the highlights of the trip was a service at Vega Alta Women’s Prison. Here at least 28 inmates received Jesus. As we shared with them we saw the power of God move mightily. Many of the women were broken and weeping openly before God. There were many women in this facility who are pregnant.

We also visited a youth facility in San Juan. Here we met a seventeen year old boy who was recently sentenced to 200 years for a triple murder. There was another young boy who was sobbing when we met him. His mother was a drug addict and used all of the family's money to fund her addiction. With no money left and fearing his little brothers would not have food to eat, he stole some bananas in an effort to provide for them and was arrested. We were able to minister to both of these boys, as well as many others.

Over 16,000 lives were touched by the generosity of this ministry, its partners and volunteers. 4,300 people gave their lives to Jesus!

Words can not express my gratitude for the opportunities given to us. What a joy to see the lives of so many touched by the hand of God. Many will have a brighter tomorrow and a whole lot less sorrow in the future. As long as people can change, the world can change. We are making a difference together. THANK YOU!
