Jesus provided his followers with an excellent example of ministering to those who are in the greatest need of salvation: the poor, the outcasts, the orphans, the captives.  This week Kevin’s guest is Roger Ziegler, who for the last 15 years has been following Jesus’ example by taking the Gospel to R. J. Donovan Correctional Facility.  There are over 2.3 million prison inmates in the United States, and over 100 thousand in California alone.  Roger works with Pastors to Prisoners, a ministry dedicated to reaching as many of these people as possible with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

God has undoubtedly been working through the efforts of Pastors to Prisoners, touching the lives of more inmates every week.  In addition to Roger, Kevin talks with two men who were personally impacted by the ministry: Freddy and Ralph.  Freddy joined the LA street gang the Crips in 1973, and ran with the gang’s founder Tookie Williams.  His lifestyle of drugs and violence landed him in prison multiple times for a total of 21 years. Ralph struggled with an inescapable drug addiction for 35 years, spending 18 of them in prison.  Through Roger’s ministry, these men both found the one thing that could permanently change their lives when all else had failed: a relationship with Jesus.  Today they both act as living testimonies to the power of God, ministering to others who are just as broken as they once were.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed,”  —Luke 4:18
