After two long hours of roads filled with pot holes and several “puddles” we finally arrived at the prison. It was never on my “bucket list” to go to prison, but God had opened a door and we wanted to see where that door would lead….
Walking through the gates, surrounded by barb wire with a watch tower hovering above us, it reminded me of how precious freedom really is. Sometimes we are in prison in other ways…maybe your prison is fear, regret or worry.
The 400 men and 11 women we met today changed the way I viewed prison. Just like all of us, they’ve made mistakes. All the messages and prayers had a single theme. They were there because of bad choices that they made, but today is a new day, we all have the free will to do what is right and true. God has a plan for their lives, a good plan…trust Him and seek His face.
I left today with a heart full of gratitude and for Tim another opportunity to share the Jesus Film in the near future…God is good, faithful and true.
