Have you ever thought what a blessing it is to be free? Free to even make simple decisions like whether to leave your home in the morning or not, what to do or what not to do, what to eat, or when to sleep? You may not have thought about it, but there are people who would give anything to have that kind of freedom: those in prison. A group that is mostly forgotten and disregarded.

In December 2021, a team from Dream of a Child organisation, in partnership with Biblica visited the Kamiti Youth Correctional Centre in Nairobi, Kenya. It is an all-boys juvenile prison. They met 133 inmates aged between 18-21 years. They went through the four journeys in the Reach for Life Bibles, with each inmate receiving a copy of it. The sessions were very engaging and by the end, 30 of them gave their lives to Christ.

The objective was to give hope through God’s word, music, and laughter. Dream of a Child provided music and entertainment after 3 days of training, as the boys graduated to become Peer Mentors. Some of them wrote down their testimonies as on the picture below.

The Bible in Romans 12:2 says, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” From the testimonies we received, it is clear that the Word of God did help these inmates to see where they went wrong and were ready to change. We pray for their lives and journeys in Christ.

He placed us in families, with friends, and in communities so we can share the good times and bad times of life together. The Bible affirms the value of our human relationships—… Read more
