45 Men Baptized inside Arizona State Prison – Kingman
We had an absolutely amazing night last night down in Kingman, AZ where 45 men took the next step in their faith by getting baptized. They chose to go public with their faith in an environment that it isn’t easy to do. Choosing to follow Jesus in prison doesn’t only take courage, but it takes a strong, burning passion with conviction that Jesus is the answer to our future.
One gentleman walked up to us during service. This was our conversation.
“How you doing sir, I just want to say thank you for what you guys are doing here. This is incredible. Four months ago I lost my wife and it’s left a huge empty hole in my heart. About 2 months later you guys came in here and started this. When I walked in the room I didn’t really know what to expect, but all I felt was all of this love and it filled the hole in my heart. So I just wanted to say thank you. I’ve been in and out of prisons all over the country the last 30 years and I think this is the answer for all prisons. So many prisons need this. I have been searching for answers from God in many different religions for the longest time, and I always was left feeling empty at the end of the day. I have read all kinds of books on all the different religions just searching for answers.”
We asked him “Where are you at with your faith today?” He said, “I accepted Christ a little while back, and I chose to get baptized.”
We then asked, “Are you still searching for answers?” He said, “No. I think I found my home.”
