Why support prison ministry?
"The Benefits of Supporting a Faith-Based Restorative Justice Prison Ministry"
At Life on the Rock International, we believe in the transformative power of faith and the importance of supporting offenders as they work towards rehabilitation and reintegration into society. That's why we offer a range of faith-based restorative justice programs, including prison ministry, to help offenders heal and find purpose in their lives.
But what exactly are the benefits of supporting a faith-based restorative justice prison ministry? Here are just a few:

Mission to Mexico
In December of 2021 from the 17th - 19th Life on the Rock International took a mission team into Ciudad Victoria Tamaulipas and had services with a children's ministry led by Pastor Pedro and his wife Adrianna.
Then on Saturday Missionaries James Guerra, Ronald Corrigan, Roberto German Diaz Castillo, Raul Gallegos, accompanied by others entered into a maximum security prison at Cedes Victoria which translates into English as "You give up Victory". The team were then green lighted to take the gospel to every offender in every area of the unit. Our ministers visited, the Chapel and held services there preaching and teaching the gospel, they went into the lock-down areas, general population living quarters, inmate visitation areas, and every other within the prison to share the love of Christ.
On Sunday they went to a church in Ciudad Victoria Tamaulipas, and had an amazing service and touched many lives.
During the mission trip James reported that the team had to travel down a very dangerous highway and there was an accident on the highway that claimed 4 lives.
Please keep our missionaries in prayer and please help fund these missions into Mexico.

Missionary James G.
On Saturday October 17, 2020 we (Evangelist Ronald Corrigan and Missionary James Guerra) set on to Matamoros, Tamps. MX to do a park rally event for the community. We arrived at the park early and set up a stage and Arturo Corpus brought food (Rice & Beans) for people that would come to the event. The band would be there at 4:00 PM so we had time to walk door to door around 2:00 PM. and invite families from the community to come out and join us. Well, they did! We had over 100 people men, women and children come to the concert. We had testimonies, Music and preaching of the word of God. All hamburgers and hotdogs for the crowd. Seven people raised their hand to receive Christ for the first time and prayers were given at the alter for healing, restoring relationships and salvation. PTL!
On September 20, 2020 International Minister James Guerra relocated from Dallas, TX to the South Texas area known as the Valley. Here's a short video of his new digs and his new ministry which will focus on going into Mexico and the Rio Grande Valley area of South Texas.

Life on the Rock International Missionary James G. took a team into Pacho Viejo Prison in Veracruz Mexico during the COVID-19 Pandemic in July of 2020 to deliver hygiene kits to the indigent offenders most needing these supplies.
We want to thank our supporters whose kind donations have made it possible to be the hands and feet of Jesus in these most dark places.
James and a ministry team of Pastor German Diaz, Pastor Arturo Corpus, Chaplain Gerardo Jurado, Elio Ollivares, Professor Hilda Gaytan all entered into the Unit to deliver peace and hope and love with the offer of the free gift of Salvation.
They passed out Spanish Bibles, Spanish Faith to Faiths, Spanish Karla Faye Tucker, ministry tracts and other materials donated by our supporters.

Recovery Rehab Center
Even though being in the middle of a COVID-19 pandemic, Missionary James Guerra took a team into the Reynosa, Mexico, Recovery Rehab Center and visited both men and women as they delivered Bibles, ministry tracts, the Karla Faye Tucker Book, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the least of these. Matt 25:36...
Everyone present in the Rehab center who was able to hear the Gospel message prayed the prayer of Salvation. About 40 residents were present and all were glad to have visitors and the materials that were handed out due to the restrictions imposed during this time in the world.
A blessing to all who attended and the ministers and missionaries were certain of God's favour and protection during this time. Please consider the help that you may give by supporting the work of the ministry both internationally and locally.

Volunteer growth in 2019
The number of Volunteers at the beginning of 2019 that we had taken into a prison ministry service were at about 50, by the end of 2019 Life on the Rock has taken over 120 volunteers into the services at the above mentioned Units. In 151 services at 12 different Prisons, over 70 Volunteers visited approximately 2400 offenders in the TDCJ/MTC Units presenting the Gospel and making calls to Salvation available through our Worship/Ministry services.
If you are compelled to go into the Earth and present the Gospel to the least of these, feel free to contact us and let us know where you are from and what you would like to see Life on the Rock expanding the ministry into by becoming a ministry partner.
We give all the praise honor and Glory to Jesus Christ. When we go into the prisons and have services with the offenders, if we leave and they remember nothing but Jesus Christ who redeems and transforms lives, then we have had a successful event.
At Life on the Rock, "It's all about Jesus!!!"
