In December Prison Outreach of Ecuador hosted a Christmas dinner inside one of the male prisons in Quito. The ministry distributed 250 toiletry kits that included toilet paper, toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, and detergent. They also provided a meal for the children of the prisoners, whom they minister to each week through Bible teaching, games, and refreshments. POE’s gospel workers lead Bible studies and pray with inmates, pointing many to a life of redemption when they receive Jesus Christ as Savior. The ministry plans to build a Bible Training and Rehabilitation Center that would serve ex-prisoners from all over Ecuador, giving them solid Bible training and teaching them vocational trades so they can obtain jobs or start their own small businesses. Pray that local authorities will issue a building permit so construction can begin.
