The Prisoner's Journey®: Stories from around the world
"Despite being locked up, my soul has been freed in Christ."
If you know a little bit about our prison ministry, you're probably aware of our partnership with Prison Fellowship International (PFI).
Together with PFI we have developed The Prisoner's Journey®, adapted from the Prison Edition of Christianity Explored. This transformational evangelism and discipleship programme puts God's word in the hands of prisoners around the world.
The Prisoner's Journey® aims to reach one million of these prisoners with the Gospel by 2020.
Here's a selection of the amazing testimonies they shared with us in the latest quarterly report:
"I thank God because in this prison I got to know how much God loves me. I was able to have an encounter with Jesus through The Prisoner's Journey® programme.
"After that I found a reason for living. I began to acknowledge my attitudes of anger and resentment and realised that I alone am responsible for what happened to me.
"I feel a constant need and hunger for the Word of God and I can not stop telling others about Jesus Christ and how good it is to study and know His Word.
"Jesus is generating a change that is noticeable every day in this prison yard."

"I thank my God for everything, because I have learned a lot from what I did not understand before. But now I know that Jesus came and why he came. Now I understand that my life without Christ has no meaning. [...]
"Jesus is the Saviour of the world and He is the one who gives life and everyone who believes in Him will not be lost but will have life together with Him.
"This course has made me free. Despite being locked up, my soul has been freed in Christ."

"Here in the prison, I have been hearing women singing to the Lord.
"I heard and felt something and when I heard of The Prisoner's Journey®
, I registered for the course.
"Slowly I have been changing day and night. I thank God to have been imprisoned because here I have been blessed to know Jesus Christ who died on the cross because of my sins. Otherwise I could never accept such change in me if I was on the outside."
I have been blessed to know Jesus Christ who died on the cross because of my sins.
"I understand God is real and that He loves us no matter what our past is. The videos in the course helped me realise I can live in the present and accept God into my life.
