Gret Glyer lives in Malawi. He met a man there named Prince. Prince goes into a prison regularly to meet with murderers. Why? To do what Jesus did – turn them into disciples. And Gret asks the question, “Why don’t we do that back home?” It’s a great question – why don’t we?
So awesome and encouraging to see disciples making disciples! Loved the singing at the end – makes me miss Africa and worshipping with them!
Mystery…faith…acknowledged fear and compassion action are quadruplets for the gospel of Jesus. Things too tidy…often mean we are reshaping holy hope into institutionalized and packaged products. Its like creating genetically modified foods hoping to add “more” to something that with care and good stewardship could be more than enough. To answer the prescient question posed in the video it might be found in the rationale for a product on the cleaning aisle of any grocery store. “Tidy Bowl.” That’s an oxymoron just like “jumbo shrimp.”
Awesome to see this. If anybody get’s this – there are prison’s all over the country with people looking for answers and hope. Not all of them will receive it, but many will.
If this is something you desire to do, be prepared to face yourself. You will be surprised what surfaces when you start opening yourself to broken people. You can’t help them look at their brokenness without also looking at your own.
Oh yeah, and judgement, criticism, pride… we all have it. Prison is for sure one place that will expose that too.
It is hard, hard work. And sometimes you wonder if you are even making a difference. But when one person get’s it and get’s free – finds new hope and new purpose in Christ – that matters.
Great insight, Kim.
Beautiful, inspiring, convicting, and sadly true. Lord help me to love people enough to disciple them in Your way.

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
