For making it possible,that we could go to this prison in some faraway place, 1800 inmates are incarcerated in this Supermax prison, 547 I believe is the number of people that are housed in the solitary confinement units within this prison, We can only estimate the value of this one person through the cross of Calvary, May our own lives contemplate today the freedom that we have been granted Through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ... from a solitary confinement cell...

Minivan Needed, Matching Donation Made
(March 27, 2013)

We have been so blessed! We've recently received funds from Switzerland to assist in purchasing a minivan for this ministry. We are looking for a recent model minivan in good condition, which will allow us to travel many miles visiting men and women in prison, as well as churches across the country.

If you feel inspired to help match the funds we've received please let us know. Any amount will be a blessing!

Also, if you know of anyone with a good quality minivan with low mileage that would be interested in donating, we'd be happy to talk with them.

Once again, thank you for your support and prayers, and may God bless and keep you!

Inmates at the White County jail received a holiday surprise when "Christmas Behind Bars" visited them on Wednesday afternoon singing Christmas carols, handing out snacks and spreading inspirational words of hope.
Christmas Behind Bars is a Christ-centered ministry focused on bringing the gospel to inmates. They have traveled all over Indiana and soon Virginia stopping in jails and prisons to send a bit of hope to the inmates during the holiday season.

Semi Trailer
(February 15, 2013)

We want to thank our sponsors for helping us to acquire a refrigerated semi trailer. It’s a 1997 and is 48′ long. We praise the Lord for helping make this possible. This will be especially important in the warm weather for keeping the granola bars from melting. We also want to thank Snider Tires for painting the wheels and replacing two tires at no charge.
