A “compact prison” in São Paulo state

SÃO JOÃO DA BOA VISTA, Brazil (BNc) — From this city in the eastern region of São Paulo state, inmates in four state penitentiaries are hearing the gospel of Christ.

José Domingos de Pádua, evangelist with the church in São João da Boa Vista, said that Bibles, correspondence courses, and DVDs have been sent to the state prisons in Marília, Serra Azul, Balbinos e Flórida Paulista.

In the Balbinos prison, baptisms have occurred thanks to the studies sent there.

José Domingos asked for prayers for the prison ministry that has developed, mainly through courses sent by mail.

He also offered to share with interested churches in Brazil how these prison ministry efforts began.

    Thank you Randal for these short, yet, informative windows into the world around us. Setting the captives free! Imagine that. Truly, our world needs Jesus. These windows also give us knowledge to pray for these ministries and whom to pray for. To God be the glory.
