I Was in Prison, and You Visited Me
Recently the Consul of the Embassy of Brazil approached Pastor André Muller, who works closely with LHM's ministry in Uruguay, with a special request. A number of Brazilians are currently serving prison sentences in Uruguay and receive no ministry care or other support. The Consul has asked LHM—Uruguay to provide the spiritual care these inmates so desperately need. Equipped with Portuguese-language materials provided by LHM—Brazil, Uruguay Director Gabriela Silveira and Pastor André will visit these prisoners wherever they are incarcerated and share the Gospel and the love of Jesus with them. Gabriela invites LHM and its supporters to stand with them in prayer as they begin this powerful outreach. (Visit for more information.)
