Our hearts go out to all those who have been victims of crime. It is getting harder and harder to find someone in this day and age that has not been a victim of some type of criminal activity. We pray that in some way this site will minister to your heart.
I don't know a single Christian prisoner, out of the thousands I've known, who doesn't feel a genuine concern for their victims and families of their victims. Those who do not deal with their guilt and shame are held in bondage to their past. It is our calling to minister liberty to them.
Ideally, we'd like to see victims and offenders come together as victors with a vision to reach the world for Christ. But realistically, many victims and offenders are not ready for reconciliation in Christ. We have our work cut out for us to reach out to those who are hurting. We'd suggest contacting the late Chuck Colson's Justice Fellowship for information on reconciliation programs.
Our friends and us are in prayer, on how we can reach out to victims. We'd like to suggest links to victim's organizations. If you would like to recommend an organization, please let us know.
