The 2018 “Free to Praise” event
“Set me free from prison that I may bring Praise to your name. ” Psalm 142:7
It was a night of spiritual transformation and at our annual Christian Library International fundraising dinner and silent auction. We joined with about 350 other Christians who are passionate about Jesus Christ, the great commission, and prison ministry for a time of praise and fellowship.
We were inspired by the testimony of former inmate Mickey Park.
His autobiography, Stepping Stones to Freedom, has led many inmates to Christ through numerous copies CLI has distributed to prisons nationwide. Park has shared his testimony many times as part of his personal calling to prison ministry. His testimony promises to touch your heart and serve as a reminder that anyone can be redeemed.
