some with an attack dogs. Sitting before us were dangerous criminals, many of them from the MS13 gang, mafia assassins, which was tattooed on their heads. A few of them had become Christians but there were more than 60 sitting in front of us. This was the first time this new 6 year old prison allowed a group to share at the prison. We seemed to be quite an attraction because the prison employees came to see. Lined up against the wall to our left were nurses, counselors and criminologists and social workers. Even the warden came to see. We did a drama and then shared the gospel that resulted in all of the prisoners in attendance standing to give their lives to Jesus. Wow what a transformation! The warden was so thrilled he invited us to eat lunch with him. Now we have an open door to return next time.
We also spent some quality time encouraging the pastors and leaders in Guasave. The church leaders are doing a great ministry reaching neighboring communities and discipling the church members. The ladies had a great time doing a woman's conference in Alamito where they did candle making as a craft.
