Setting The Captives Free

Yesterday was our second visit to the Faith Based Unit at Gatesville Correctional Facility. We went thinking we’d be bringing a lesson and encouragement to the 33 ladies¬†incarcerated¬†there. Boy were we wrong! They are the ones who blessed us and knocked our socks off with their joy, freedom in Spirit, praise and testimonies of God’s goodness and mercy. We go every Wednesday night from 6:30 – 8:30 but they don’t want us to leave and neither do we. We have to tear ourselves away before the guards come and take us out. The peace, joy and unity these women share is inspiring and convicting. They will be¬†discipled for 18 months then are released back into the main prison population in pairs as “missionaries”. Please pray for these women as they grow in the knowledge of God and for our team as we minister acceptance, grace and restoration to them.

Hebrews 13:3 Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
