Millions of men and women around the world today are in bondage to drugs (including alcohol) or bound inside prison walls. We seek to help them with the redeeming, restoring and rebuilding love of God.
Setting Captives Free
Ministering to Prisoners
Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body (Heb 13:3 ESV).
Many of the prisons in the developing world are appalling places where people are sent—without due process of the law—for political, religious, or ethnic reasons. Disease and hunger often run rampant due to lack of government infrastructure or funding. Tragically, people are sometimes thrown into these kinds of prisons by those in power who just want to be rid of them, confident that prison is a sentence of death. In the midst of these hopeless conditions, however, the gospel of Jesus Christ shines as a bright light offering hope, healing and salvation.
In partnership with qualified indigenous ministers and chaplains, a growing number of prisoners and ex-offenders are learning that Jesus died for all sinners. When they turn to Christ, they experience His power to change their lives and become His followers.
We support a complete restorative justice model that encompasses the following five areas of ministry:
- Restoration and forgiveness for the families of offenders
- Restoration and forgiveness between victims and offenders
- Aftercare and re-entry into society
Salvation is coming to many hearts that are open wide—hearts that belong to suffering prisoners living in some of the world’s worst conditions.
Prisons in poor nations are often hellish places where inmates receive little or no food, medicine, clothing, or other basic necessities. Pictured above is a Burmese prisoner with hand and feet shackles receiving baptism.
Helping Addicts Break the Chains of Addiction
And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit (Eph 5:18 ESV).
Drug addiction is an international curse causing great pain and despair among all people groups of the world. Many are in prison today because of their addiction to drugs or alcohol. In fact, for a large percentage of people in prison today, drugs or alcohol played a major role in their incarceration.
We support drug rehab efforts in the US and other parts of the world, working to spread the Gospel of Hope to addicts. The only answer for breaking free of addictions is the power of the Holy Spirit. With the help of our partners—generous contributors like you and indigenous ministers—we are working to:
- Bring hope to the hopeless
- Bring liberty to the oppressed
- Set captives free
- Make disciples
- Restore families
There is Hope! With your help we can help many men and women to break the bonds of addiction and experience the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus commanded us to “make disciples” and taught us that a heart of love and compassion will minister to the “least of these”. Thank you for helping us do that!
We are currently making a difference in the U.S., Cuba, Mexico, Cameroon, Kenya, Rwanda, D.R. Congo and Myanmar. As the Lord opens the doors, our efforts will expand into other countries.
