Softening Hearts Hardened in Prison

Roy Lormis, Joyce Meyer Ministries Prison Ministry 

This was another amazing year for our Prison Ministry team. To date in 2012, we visited 156 prisons in the United States and distributed 215,000 bars of soap, bottles of shampoo and copies of Joyce’s books to inmates. We held 132 services in the prisons and were able to lead 10,767 inmates to the Lord!

We recently visited all 50 prisons in California where we saw a lot of thankful men and women. One man in particular, in the High Desert facility, comes to mind. He showed me an empty shampoo bottle he had from our previous visit in 2002. He had kept it as a reminder of someone caring enough to visit and giving the inmates gifts. He couldn’t get over the fact we were back again with gifts for everyone. He just lit up with smiles and tons of thanks.

Our heartfelt thanks to the partners and friends of Joyce Meyer Ministries – your support allows us to travel the world sharing the message of hope and healing that is freely available to everyone through Christ Jesus. Together we truly are better.
