Communities where Christ is least known

Foreign prisoners in Lima

Peru is the second-highest exporter of cocaine in the world. An estimated 200 foreign men and women are in prison, having been arrested as drug mules. Peruvian prisons provide the basics: a mattress and meals. Inmates must buy or rely on family to provide toiletries, towels and sheets for their beds.
Mary and her small team of volunteers visit the foreign, English-speaking women in two prisons and provide humanitarian support for these women who are far away from their homes and families.
There is only one English-speaking evangelical prison ministry in Lima, and it is more than 20 years old. Inmates often have had difficult lives, but they share a common need for Christ. We visit weekly, study the Bible together and meet with those on parole, sharing the gospel and offering a relationship of trust and friendship where Christ is the centre.
Every few years there is a shift in what countries the prisoners come from, as the women are targeted in their passport countries by the drug cartels. Recently, there has been a change from English-speaking to Spanish-speaking countries. There is a need for an evangelical Spanish-speaking prison ministry in Lima, as well as an English-speaking men’s prison ministry.

Prayers

Pray for Mary and her prison ministry team, and for more men and women to join them.
