Bringing a message of spiritual freedom to a Taichung prison

Jeffrey Groft

During the Christmas season our troop of 22 volunteers from four branches of The Family International in Taichung paid a visit to a famous prison in central Taiwan and prayed with over 400 people to receive Jesus into their hearts as their personal Savior. Not only did the inmates receive Jesus into their hearts, but they also received colorful Christmas posters sponsored by Activated Ministries. These posters helped to give all the inmates a beautiful and concise message of Jesus’ gift of love and salvation in Mandarin Chinese that they will never forget!

Our teens also put on a musical performance at the prison, which was over two hours long and required four hours in prep on location. But it was well worth it to see the happy faces of the inmates and prison authorities. The presentation consisted of our band “Nubeat”, a skit called “New Life” from our skit crew, and a 23 minute dance performance by our singing team.

On behalf of all our volunteers, we’d like to thank Activated Ministries for helping to make our Christmas presentation complete through their sponsorship of 1,600 Chinese Christmas posters.
