“President Holder and I were in deep prayer over bringing a new missions opportunity that every individual, church and ministry in our Fellowship could engage in. The partnership with Prison Fellowship International on the children of prisoners project was born out of that prayer. As the Global Director of missions for this Fellowship, my heart and the heart of my church beats for God’s global kingdom — and we as a church family already support a lot of missionaries and activities. But when we had a sponsorship Sunday, dozens of children were sponsored from countries all over the world. The generosity in the hearts of my congregation is unending. And it is in yours too. Your church, your ministry, your soul will be blessed by engaging with the Fellowship community around the country in this shared effort.”

Director of World Missions, The Fellowship Network

“Our church has had it’s heart break open for these children. We held a sponsorship Sunday in January. We were amazed when 59 of our congregants sponsored a child of a prisoner. I knew I needed to see what these children were living through every day, but I couldn’t imagine what we would experience when we traveled to Colombia. The love and care and the presence of God in the staff, the call on their lives – I was blown away. The trials of these families and children is beyond comprehension. I have not come home the same as when I left, this mission is truly after God’s own heart.”
