Review for Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc., DeBary, FL, USA
I served as a volunteer on a Kairos Prison Ministry event and I got to know one of the inmates well enough that the "mask" of being a strong, tough guy came off. By the end of the Kairos Weekend event, with tears in his eyes, he said that every single male in his family - father, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, and cousins - every one in his family was incarcerated. He was serving his third time, but this time he met the Lord through the Kairos experience, and something was different.
So, he said, all his family males were incarcerated, but now, he was going to break the cycle of incarceration and brokenness so no more from his family would end up in prison. I couldn't imagine how, with his background, that he could realistically think that he could make a difference in his family like that. I'll never forget his reply. He simply turned and looked at me with those tears in his eyes and said "But it is different now because I know Jesus, and He will restore my family and He will use me to do that."
It is so incredible to see the Holy Spirit working through Kairos Prison Ministry to redeem broken lives that society has locked up and thrown away the key, but the Lord hasn't forgotten them.
