Hope for those in prison

Changing hearts, Changing lives, changing the prison atmosphere, changing the world


“What Satan intended for evil,  God is using for good”

The men are locked down 23 hours per day, but…

Normal secular education and training programmes are on hold, but…

the men, no longer able to go the Gym on Sundays, are staying in their cells watching Christian TV often for the first time.

residents have more time to engage in their own spiritual education, revaluating the past direction of their lives, and finding new hope, as they read relevant Christian literature (especially testimonies of personal change). slid under their doors by the Chaplains.

Men cannot go to the Chapel to their normal bible study, but…

The Chaplains cannot hold their normal Sundays services, but…

the same men are spending time reading about Jesus in their Bibles, and studying by themselves.

they have time to have more deep ‘God conversations’ with unchurched residents and staff then ever!

Kairos volunteers cannot go inside to talk with the men, but…

they are ‘outside’ talking to their friends about Kairos, and making recruits for the future.
