Prisoners Set Free by Jesus in Urdaneta Jail

Pastor friend on left and Wyman outside entrance of Urdaneta County Jail where we will participate in their weekly Bible study and praise fellowship.

We are in the group photo with some of the inmates. They all found Christ while incarcerated and awaiting trial for their crimes.  Do you see how young they are?! The Lord set them free from sin and condemnation and made them children of God.  They have placed their faith in God for whatever the future holds for them and their families.

Before we left, we prayed for the warden that God would bless him in his work here at the county jail.  The Philippines is a God-fearing nation.  On their 20 peso it says, “Pinagpala ang bayan na ang Diyos ay ang Panginoon (Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord),” which comes from Psalm 33:12. This statement can be found above the seal of the Republic of the Philippines.  Unlike in America, there are open doors to speak to and pray with students and administrators in public schools and provincial universities.  We have also had the liberty to do marketplace preaching with loud speakers in Pozurubio.
