Proclaiming Liberty to the Captives

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed…” (Luke 4:18)

The San Fernando Christian Community Jail Mission Team has been active for almost two years. And God has been faithful by giving us a glimpse of His works behind the scenes. In prison, one’s life would seem to be put on hold. The inmates see nothing but a dead end street ahead. But God’s light can penetrate and obliterate any darkness. His love cannot be deterred by prison bars.  That is why volunteers sacrifice their Monday mornings to bring hope to the hopeless and the Truth that Jesus died for them, too. They bring the Good News that with Jesus, there is another chance at life. Even when confined within prison walls, they can be set free.
