Sample cover to reach this community
A wrap-around cover featuring road signs that represent our human desire to know which way to go. With so many chances to go the "wrong way," this cover suggests graphically that there is "one way" that works. Text is "Finding Your Way."
Men and women in our prisons are often secluded and feel alone. While some have support systems in place, many do not and need others to come to their aid. Meeting these people in some of their darkest times, while they are dealing with their guilt, shame, and pain, allows for such a rich opportunity to share the hope and love of Jesus Christ.
We've found that many prisoners find the forgiveness, comfort, love, peace and joy, that they never thought they could receive, when introduced to the Good News of Jesus Christ. League members sharing their faith boldly and armed with the scriptures in Pocket Testaments, have and continue to make a huge impact in changing lives of those in prison.
Prison Ministry-related Story
“I have been doing prison ministry in a juvenile prison facility for 36 years. There is a lot of turn over. It really helps to give the youth a Bible after they have made a commitment to follow and serve Jesus Christ for the rest of their lives. We are able to help many of them see that they are where they are because they did not pray to Jesus first, were not doing everything for the sole purpose of pleasing Jesus, and this is not what Jesus would have done. The Gospel of John answers so many of life's questions. I tell those that have committed their lives to follow and obey Jesus that after they have read the Gospel of John I will give them a New Testament. Many times the staff request a Bible or Gospel of John as well. The LORD is able to reach 10-12 youth many weeks. They are only there while waiting for court, so there are always new ones that I have not talked to.”
