In the last year, one of our mission groups started to visit several youth prisons. They discovered a totally new world: young people like them, suffering from the consequences of bad decisions. The understood that Jesus came for this kind of people too.
Here’s what some of them say:
“I believe it’s our duty to visit them and to share the Gospel.” – Calin
Surprisingly, most of the prisoners were opened to hear the Gospel. This reminded me that we’re not from this world and what we leave behind is what matters. – Mogo
“It means a lot that we could visit the penitentiary. I could see God working through us. Those people need God because they have nobody.” – Darius
“Visiting the Aiud penitentiary I could see God hand at work. I never believed before that those guys would be so opened and supporting. Behind the “tough masks” I could see souls that need the love of Jesus, like anyone of us. We talked and laugh with them, read the Bible and prayed. From now on, we can pray for them and wait for the seed to grow in them.” – Oana.
