Tough Young Men with Brighter Futures

These two brothers live about 10 miles out of town with about 150 other prisoners. The guy on the left is 20, and leads a Bible Study. His brother, 25, is revered as the toughest guy in the prison.

On the day I visited, there was a wrestling tournament. These guys are really talented, and it seems a healthy activity. Outside of prison, they will need more than physical strength to get ahead.

There is a plan materializing to help guys like these find work when they get out. This is the dream of our friend from church who every month brings the hope of the gospel into this prison to men in need of it most. Posted by Picasa
