Today was one of the coolest experiences that I have had since I have been back. I went to the prison for visiting day and took a little boy who´s mom is in prison and then 3 other little boys. It is cool that this little boy who was taken away from his mom when he was a tiny infant and has never known her is now saying I am going to visit my mom and running to her when  he sees her.

First big news... Mel is now a Christian!

We started talking with another guy and I am not sure what he has done to end up in prison but he told us how it was a good thing that he ended up in prison because know he knows Christ and he gets to hear The Word preached where he didn´t when he was not in prison. He was reading a book about Heaven and Hell and he told us he was happy now because he KNOWS where he is going. 

We talked to these men for a few minutes until a mens group that I am not familiar with came in and had a worship service. They had tamborines and that is it but it was the most powerful worship service that I have ever been a part of. Just to see all these men worship and the woman hold her son and worship it was simply amazing! It was so loud in that little chapel that the kids were covering their ears.

After the worship they gave a little message and then ask if anyone wanted prayer to be set free from their past. This is where it got crazy I thought maybe a few people would go up front but all but a few people in the whole prison went up and prayed over. It was great to see the new life in their faces. One of the boys with me looked over at me and said ¨WOW¨!!! I am so thankful that I got to be apart of this day as well as all the children and Grace loved it she was right up front clapping and dancing her little heart out. 

 I am so excited to see what the Lord is doing and is going to do in the lives of the people in the prison!!
