Why Christians Should Reach Out to Prison Inmates

Ad Feedback

Two stories of international tragedy made headlines around the world last week.

A huge fire in a Honduran prison killed more than 358 inmates, and a prison riot led to more than 40 deaths in Mexico.

Both of theses stories are the latest examples of the need for global prison reform.

One ministry is trying to bring about such change, while also reaching forgotten prisoners with the Gospel.

Ronald Nikkel, president of Prison Fellowship International, spoke about the problems within prisons worldwide, on the CBN News Channel Morning show Feb. 21.

See how his ministry is taking on the problem of prison overcrowding, and why he feels Christians should reach out to the needs of prisoners.
