Accra, 13th June 2015 – A delegation of missionaries from The Jesus Is Lord Crusades (JILC), an evangelical mission based in the United States, paid a visit to inmates of the Nsawam Female prison on Saturday, June 13 , 2015.
The purpose of the visit was to share with the inmates the word of God, and encourage them to keep hopes and dreams alive even under the circumstances they have found themselves.
. Evangelist Marian Anim, founder of JILC, reminded the inmates of the woman of Zarephath whose faith in God and obedience to the prophet Elijah saved her household from famine. She encouraged them to ignore negative perceptions people have about them, and to focus on enhancing their personal and spiritual lives.
The JILC delegation also presented the ladies with bibles and gifts of sanitary items.
According to Evangelist Marian, the gifts were to remind the inmates that they were not forgotten. “We parcelled each gift with the women in mind. It is symbolic to their inner beauty which is made manifest outwardly. We believe they have been as inspired by our sharing, as we have been encouraged by their individual impartations into our lives.” She said.
The prison outreach was organised as part of activities leading to the ongoing Heart of Jesus Evangelism Conferences which begun in Accra from the 16th and will end on the 20th of June. The crusades will also take place in and in Ada from the 25th to the 28th June, where the team will organise health screening exercises for townsfolk. The Conferences are designed to touch the hearts of Ghanaians and develop in them the passion to share the faith with others through evangelism.
