BALSAM GHUT, Tortola, VI- Ex-inmate of Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP), Alcedo Lettsome has sought to bring hope to prisoners at the local penitentiary.

Using his turn at the microphone during the ongoing evangelical services at HMP in Balsam Ghut last night, August 11, 2020, Lettsome said he is no stranger to the struggles at the prison.

He said: “I’ve been in the struggle, I have been behind bars, and somebody give me a chance.”

“Days I wake up tears in my eyes, I lose my mother, lose my family, but somebody kept me together. I bring a little hope to you all, tell all you don’t care what happens, hold on, don’t give in, hold on! Because somebody loves you. Somebody cares a lot about you, when the rest of the world walk away, that person will come and take care of you,” he stated.

Lettsome was one of the speakers of the one-week nightly services which comes to an end on Friday, August 14, 2020.

Prove society wrong!

Meanwhile, Pastor at the Agape Total Life Centre, Dr Lucia C. Woods also ministered to the prisoners.

“Many of you in here are gifted, talented, but instead of using your talent for God, you use it for the power of darkness. Many of you have heard only the negative, many of you have heard that you will not amount to anything good, cursing you by saying all kinds of negative things.

"You don’t have to follow the negative, come up higher than you are because God has said you are a chosen generation. You can prove that you are not what society says!” she exhorted.

Apart from preaching, Pastor Woods prayed for the inmates and the management of HMP.

The theme of the evangelical services is: "Salvation from darkness to light, are you ready for what comes next?'

    Hi. I love this. Yes while the prisoners are incarcerated for many reasons, we are all sinners. Let us as a society by God help and guide them to a better way. They also must desire passionately to seek redemption and a better way of life through Jesus Christ.

    That was a very good idea to have that evangelistic service at the prison.
    Only God can help us when everyone else turn their backs on you.
    Hope some of the inmates took that service serious.

    This is very nice to have evangelical services at the prison for we all need to be ministered to.. very proud of you cedo.God is more than able to change the heart of any man-Saul in Acts 9. Is an example of God’s Amazing Power and He also did it for many of us he could do it for them as well.

    Romans 13: 11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
    12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light... this Word isn’t just for them but for all of you reading these blogs that do not know God as your Savior.. we must continue to pray the God Minister to the hearts of man.
