This is one of the brightest doors God has opened for JSCC and it has been absolutely amazing! Lea County Correctional facility houses 1200 inmates and is a medium security facility. Among the 1200 inmates we are able to meet face to face with around 125 inmates.
JSCC is allowed to go into one of the pods we call "God's Pod," which holds 60 inmates. Many of these men have completed certain biblical requirements to be allowed to be housed in this particular pod. Not all pods are like this one. Many men are desiring to move into this pod because of the change in behavior it is known for.
To be in "God's Pod" these men have programming requirements that must be completed at a particular date set by the Chaplain. Each man is to complete various amounts of reading in the Bible, outlines of chapters, book reports, research on Bible topics and lessons presented before their peers. Our program believes in order for a person to be restored it will come through Jesus The Christ.
Presently we are able to visit, pray and study with these men on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Lives are being changed, past are being forgiven and generations are being changed because of Jesus!
