"…the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor…."

Inmates are at the heart of what we do. Reaching out to them through Bible Studies and Fellowships transforms them; their hope for a better future is restored. We’re able to do this through volunteers, ladies and gentlemen from various churches. Annually, we hold a training for volunteers to inform and guide them about the Prison Ministry. On January 29th, 7 volunteers showed up for the training. 

Ellen Eva Ssuubi, Wells of Hope’s Executive Director shared with the participants about how the organization was founded, its overview and it’s interventions. She encouraged the participants to exercise their calling (say reaching out to the needy, teaching the word of God). She urged them to reach out to inmates with love.

She added that Prison Ministry was started basing on the Bible; Isaiah 61:1 (The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners) and Matthew 25:35-36 (For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.)

Pr Mark Kato, Wells of Hope Scripture Union leader shared the importance of exercising God’s calling. He said that it’s an act of obedience to God. 

The participants were excited to learn about Wells of Hope and most especially the Prison Ministry.
We’re truly grateful to all the participants and their churches for responding to this cause of reaching out to inmates.
