Sharing Hope in Jesus

We concluded 2018 by visiting all prisons during December to comfort the inmates with the good news of the hope we have by the blood of Jesus, we met many local and foreigner inmates from The Middle East. We prayed with them and encouraged them. Two of the inmates in the women prison accepted Jesus as their personal savior. Three women committed to start reading the bibles that we gave them.

The year ended with much joy as we said farewell to James, the inmate who finished his sentence and was released. One of our team welcomed him to his house to stay with his family for almost two months until all official documentation was finalized. We are happy to know that he is united now with his family.

Prison unsplashWe are preparing now for the first cycle of visitations (out of six cycles) to visit the 15 prisons all around The Middle East which starts in February.

Some of the women team gathered and packed love gifts to be distributed to inmates whom we will visit in a few days. The love gifts that we give to all inmates we attend include hygiene kit, towels, clothes, calling cards, candy and some pocket money always manage to draw a smile on their faces as they show the love of Jesus practically.

Our team continues to serve with another ministries safe house, conducting a Bible study for the women trapped there and providing them with a home cooked meal prepared by one of our volunteers weekly.

Prayer Requests:

  • Please pray for the prison visitation cycle that will start on February 4th until February 25th. Where our volunteers will visit the 15 prisons in the different regions.
  • Pray for protection for the team on the roads, last year we had two accidents which caused damage to the ministry vehicle.
  • Pray for the ministry at the safe house as we go there on a weekly basis to conduct a bible study and provide a meal to women trapped there until their issues are solved.
  • Pray for the re-opening of a tailor shop that we use for rehabilitating some inmates who are released to teach them a profession that they can use when they go back home to generate income to support themselves and their families.
