Prison Radios Providing Biblical Education
“We have one of the greatest opportunities anywhere in our nation to share the message of salvation to a lost and dying world in jails and prisons in our area,” said Wayne Dozier, a Faith Radio listener who began a mission of putting “Radios of Faith” into jails and prisons. Wayne said, “With Alabama being number 1 at 193% in over-crowding, the time is now to share!” One inmate shared, “When we see you coming with the radios, it’s just like Christmas! Faith Radio tells us what God’s Word says, what it means, and how to apply it to our lives since so many of us in here struggle with very poor reading ability.”
Listeners in Covington, Elmore, Houston, Lee, and Montgomery counties have responded and collected special donations to purchase radios. We also have been blessed to get “Radios of Faith” in the jails and prisons in North Florida, which is part of the Faith Radio listening area. God is opening more doors in this new year. Dozier told us, “The court systems are asking us to come up with ideas to help in the local community with how to get these great tools in the hands of those who need to hear.” Pray for these special opportunities to share God’s Word with inmates.
