One of the women who I met for regular Bible studies was Michelle. I’ve noticed a huge change in her attitude towards life and other people, and she was baptised in the prison by the Anglican Bishop of Tasmania. She is now doing a survey of the whole Bible on salvation; she works to a very high standard embracing very powerfully the concepts of the Christian faith.
As workers in God’s field of Prison Fellowship we build upon the foundation of the many people who have ministered faithfully before us, and reap where they have sown. We give glory to God for increasing favour and opening doors as His love is spread abroad within the Prison walls and beyond.
Please pray for opportunities for the gospel to impact the lives of women in prison, and for meaningful connections with mentors and local churches providing family and post-release support. Pray for husbands, wives, carers, parents and children this new year – that they may be supported and cared for and come to know Jesus as the one who renews all things.
