Louisiana State Penitentiary "Angola", The Louisiana State Women's facility, and Avoyelles Parish
This most recent trip to Louisiana was very exciting. I was accompanied by my friend and Country music artist, Marty Raybon. Marty and I spent three days at three different state prison facilities. I was able to teach the men and women at both Angola and the women's state facility who are involved in the seminary program. I have had the opportunity to teach and preach in these three prisons for the past few years and look forward to the time I get to spend with the inmates. Marty was along to share in both song (concerts) and testimony. We also had events at the Avoyelles Prison where we have been able to go for the past few years as well. The inmates are in desperate need of God's love and grace. I spend time counseling and encouraging as well as teaching and preaching. We have seen, on each occasions, salvation decisions and evidences of spiritual growth. God is doing something very special at these prison facilities and it is being replicated at other institutions around the country.
