Hope on the Inside Results
The day was cloudy and rainy, yet over 200 adults and children--representing over 60 churches--came with rain gear and umbrellas to pray outside the Forsyth County Jail on April 22. Their presence and prayers didn’t go unnoticed by the inmates. Tap-tap-tapping on the windows from inside let us know they saw the people standing on the streets surrounding the jail praying for them. One inmate said, “When we saw you outside yesterday, we gathered in a circle and prayed for you, too.”
The next day 60 volunteers led retreat activities that opened doors to share the love and forgiveness of Christ to over 400 inmates. More than 85 inmates made professions of faith and over 200 received prayer!
