Experiencing God’s Power in Prison
From across the United States approximately 50 volunteers excitedly gathered recently to conduct the Journey to the Heart program for the incarcerated. Four correctional institutions welcomed the workers. Of the four prisons, two were adult male facilities and two were female facilities, totaling an estimated 190 inmates. This outreach and discipleship not only positively benefits the inmates, but it also impacts the correctional staff.
At one of the facilities, the warden with both assistant wardens and the colonel came to greet the volunteers and inmates who were participating in the Journey. They came during a video message about overcoming bitterness, and these top officials chose not to interrupt. To our amazement, they stayed and listened until it was finished.
At the end of the video message, the warden not only expressed a deep appreciation for the Journey volunteers and their service, but also continued by sharing that God had used that message to speak to them.prisonjourney.com.
