"Touching Hearts and Changing Lives with the Gospel of Jesus Christ"

On December 17th, the Evangel Prison team was able to take the love of Jesus to the Madison Girls Correctional Facility. We were welcomed with open arms from the girls and the officers.  They were so happy to see us.  The team sang Christmas carols, read the story of Jesus Christ’s birth, handed out Christmas bags with stockings filled with socks, candy, cakes and cookies.  We were able to give out an Action Bible to each girl.  The girls and officers loved the Bibles and said they had never received such a nice Bible as this one.  The girls and guards were so grateful for everything.

On December 25th, the Evangel Prison team was able to take the love of Jesus to the Audubon Boys Correctional Facility.  We were welcomed with open arms from the boys.  We were honored to serve them a great Christmas meal of fried chicken, ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, broccoli casserole, homemade biscuits, salad, and pumpkin and pecan pie.  We had lunch and fellowship with them.  The

Christmas bags we gave them contained seek and find crossword books, socks, cookies, candy and an Action Bible to each young man.  They were very grateful for everything.

It’s an honor and a privilege to serve and spread His love to these precious young men and women.  Praise the Lord!
