Review for Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc., DeBary, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've been a volunteer for 3 years now and have never had a more fulfilling Christian experience. I have seen men's hearts change in the course of a weekend experience where they encounter Jesus (maybe for the first time). Then, after the weekend, there is continued support and discipleship. It is what Jesus asks us to do! ❤️

Review for Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc., DeBary, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Watching the participants is like watching a microcosm of the entire Christian experience. As Christians sharing Jesus we usually only get to see a portion of this. We plant a seed here, we assist in a harvest there (mostly from seeds we never planted ourselves). Yet, that is not the case on a Kairos weekend. Thursday begins with men who are guarded (figuratively and literally) , timid, unsure what to expect, doubtful, untrusting, some only there for the cookies. By Sunday, these same men are joyously singing to God, embracing each other, loving on each other, expressing a closeness to Jesus that they never knew. There is laughter, tears, forgiveness, and joy. It is like watching time lapse photography of a flower growing, starting from the seed...pushing through the earth...reaching toward the light...and opening into a beautiful bloom. It is miraculous!
