At a recent visit to the Akuse Prison to dedicate ceiling fans
and horn speakers for Bible listening within the prison, inmates were full of praise for the Bible listening program
Theovision International has instituted there.
Read some of the interesting testimonies some of them shared during the visit.
A Prison Officer reported,
“Bible listening has contributed in no small way in changing lives at the prisons”. These were his words
Bible listening has led Randy to Christ. He also had this to say:
“When I was convicted and sent to prison, at first, I felt very bitter and hated anything called church, but now I never miss any church activity. Thanks to the Bible listening, I have received Jesus into my life and His word is my guide and protector. Even here in prison I have begun to witness to some of my colleagues and hope to continue even after I am released.”
Praise from Nepal ~ and a prayer request
Hi my name is Anita, I am a young girl from Brahmin family, I am still Hindu, but I truly trust in God. I have the Bible with me and read it. I have not been baptized yet but have received Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I have not been able to go to Church but I hate worshiping idols. God has fulfilled my heart. Some times I struggle being a girl from Brahmin family because when I share the good news of Jesus to others, they ridicule me, it hurts me. I would love to use my time doing God’s work, please pray for me.
“I felt abandoned and empty when I first entered the prison but the word of God I listen to daily has brought me hope and comfort.”
Bright on his part said:
“I used not to even read the Bible but during one of our Bible listening sessions at the Prison I heard Paul admonishing his son Timothy to study the Scriptures and that touched my heart. Today I read the Bible and also witness to my friends in the prison.”
Mary, a resident of the Delakop village in Ghana, Africa says:
"In this village, we were in darkness. All we did was work on the farm, eat and once a week take our farm produce to the local market to sell. When we fell sick we consulted the fetish priest for herbal treatment and sometimes we were e village who, in her own initiated into idol worship so that the gods would heal and protect us. Our lives were woven around farm work, the ancestral gods and the fetish shrine in the village. But when the audio New Testament in the Ewe language was brought to us and we listened to God's Word regularly, I realized that I was lost and if I did not repent I would go to hell. One day, as I listened to how Nicodemus, a prominent man got born again, I became so challenged that I gave my life to Jesus Christ. Now I believe I have been delivered from darkness into light.”
