About Our Prison Ministry
In our quad city area we are the only faith based organization that does what we do in both of our areas of ministry. We were founded in 2005, since then ahve led many many women to the Lord and even now have expanded to a street ministry to the homeless, leading them to Christ as well and meeting needs.
Please pray that as a ministry we will honor the Lord Jesus Christ in all areas. Pray for our clients! Pray that the finances we need will come in. And please pray for the hurting women in our circle of influence. We want to expand our ministry in the coming years and need the money to open two more houses ( locally) and help the people in Cuenca Ecuador to do the same for exinmates, there is no such thing there in Ecuador.
