We will never know this side of heaven how the Holy Spirit will use our seed-planting to bring multiple harvests resulting in countless lives touched by the Good News of Jesus!
We are often asked why we choose to do prison ministry. Charles T. Studd, missionary to formerly unreached people in Asia and Africa, said it best:
There are so many creative ways to minister and work in the harvest fields! God can and will send out anyone to be His voice, hands, and feet!
Those offenders to whom FIJM teaches Christian discipleship principles while they are incarcerated have demonstrated a true desire to follow Jesus. Their successful re-entry to society is the key. But "hand-outs" are not the answer. Won't you help us give them a good "leg-up" instead?
