Forty-six inmates of the recently-commissioned Nsawam Camp Prison have surrendered their lives to Christ.
The multifaceted camp prison, which was constructed by The Church of Pentecost and handed over to the Ghana Prisons Service, received the first batch of 50 inmates on January 8, 2023.
To the glory of God, 18 of the inmates accepted Jesus as their Lord and personal Saviour during the first church service organised at the camp on Sunday, January 15, 2023, and were baptised in water.
Twenty-eight others rededicated their lives to Christ. An intensive prayer session during the service saw some inmates renouncing their old way of life, fetishes and plans of exacting revenge on some targeted persons upon release.
The Nsawam Camp Prison is one of two correctional facilities constructed by The Church of Pentecost for the Prisons Service to support the efforts of government in reforming prisoners.
In the facility is a chapel, which focuses on refining prisoners with the word of God. The church building also serves as a classroom where prisoners receive formal education.
The facility also has a workshop where the prisoners are trained in skills acquisition so that they would be able to work to support themselves and become responsible members of society when reintegrated.
