PRISON

JESUS CHALLENGED HIS DISCIPLES WITH THESE WORDS: …”WHEN  I WAS SICK, AND IN PRISON, YOU VISITED ME…” ….MEANING HIMSELF! AMAZING – JESUS IDENTIFIED WITH US AT OUR WORST.

Maforga teams go most Sundays to visit the prison and bring gifts of food, soap and occasionally medical help to them. Many prisoners come to us after their release and there is not enough rehabilitation for them…there is a great need for them to be helped.

At Christmas and other holidays and Kees Tanis with the discipleship school often organizes a festa (feast) for them, they go after church and take some of the children with them. It’s an eye-opener to see the prison “cells” – the prisoners really appreciate the attention and prayer. The children sing to them – a welcome sound, as music brings healing and enjoyment with it.
