Giving Hope to Inmates in the UK

Jack Elledge - Office Director, Joyce Meyer Ministries United Kingdom 

Joyce Meyer Ministries United Kingdom office, in partnership with Abundant Life Church of Bradford, Love Life Ministry and The Message Trust, visited 13 prisons in the northern part of the United Kingdom and distributed 6,000 hygiene gift bags to inmates. Fifty-two inmates gave their lives to Christ through services held in three prisons.

We were able to do something, which to my knowledge has never been done before on this scale in this country. We were able to bring hope to many who had lost faith and confidence that people on the outside still cared about them. We had the opportunity to share the love of God and bring hope back into the lives of men and woman who felt forgotten. This outreach will have a lasting impact not only to the inmates that we ministered to, but also on all of those who gave their time and heart to reach out to those in need.
Hand of Hope is the missions arm of Joyce Meyer Ministries. Our goal is simply to help as many hurting people as we possibly can, to alleviate human suffering and to help Christians grow in their faith.
