Are you searching for strong and faithful Christians? You will find some of them in the Central Prison of San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Not in a monastery, not in a mega church, not in a Bible school. I was in that prison once, teaching for our training program, and was impressed with the quality of character of the leaders of the prison church. Yes, they have a captive audience (no pun intended) but their ministry goes beyond the prison walls and reaches into the families of the inmates and their siblings. The church's ministry towards the elderly (who are literally abandoned by their families and the whole world) is a prime example of Book-of-Acts-church ministering the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ in the most genuine and practical way.
Our team in San Pedro was thrilled with the opportunity to schedule a showing of the movie War Room (if you haven't seen it yet, we highly recommend you see it!) around the holidays last year! Here are some pictures that will take you inside and give you a glimpse. Continue to pray with us for our work in the prison so that the light of Christ and His redemptive power will rescue and save more inmates!
