Visit to the prison

One of the local ministries is a group of men from the center who visit the
prison twice a month to bring Bibles, pray, and minister to those who need
the gospel. This year for Christmas we were able to bring a meal for the
incarcerated men. The prison's typical diet is rice with some canned tuna
twice a day, so a meal of vegetables, lamb chops, and baked goods was a
highlight for the men.

The top picture shows the men listening to a program. A local church from
PNG did most of the food preparation and also led some singing.

The middle and bottom pictures also show the prisoners during the program.
A number of speakers addressed the group, challenging them in their faith
and sharing various Bible passages.
