Record Number of Inmates Turn to Faith in Christ

Daughters of Destiny leaders witness a surge in conversions, interest in life change

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 

Novemeber 11th, 2010, Colorado Springs, CO-For more that 30 years, Mel Goebel has been going into prioson to share the gospel. Throughout the years, he has seen men and women transformed. But what he is seeing now is just plain amazing.For the first time, Mel and his wife, Annie, who head Daughters of Destiny prison ministry, are witnessing women inmates come to Christ in record numbers. In the past year, more than 20,000 inmates have attended Daughters of Destiny evangelism events, and nearly 7,500 have made decisions for Christ.  

 “What a holy privilege to watch God move in this ministry,” said Annie. “There’s an excitement and fervor for God. In the past, 7%-10% of the inmates at a facility might attend our meetings. Now we’re seeing 30%-90%!”

We are experiencing revival in women’s prisons throughout the U.S,” said Mel. “We see a movement of repentance, and as a result the women inside are passionate to share their faith with others in prison.”  

Daughters of Destiny ministry includes a Full Circle ministry modeled by what Annie and Mel experienced in their lives. Currently, approximately 850 trained volunteers provide on-going ministry in 25 states for 3,711 inmates in 203 detention facilities and for 3,488 women who have been released from prison. This Full Circle Ministry then encourages women back in their communities.

More than 1 million women in the United States are incarcerated,” Annie said. “Many of these women are young wives and mothers. The majority of them want to change, to make better choices when they return to society. They need to know that God changes all who ask Him.”

Mel & Annie have a remarkable story of redemption. Both committed their lives to Christ while in prison over 20 years ago. Today, as husband and wife, both transformed by Jesus Christ and given a new destiny, they serve to empower hundreds of thousands of women of faith. Together they are placing a net of God’s grace across our country for women in prison and upon release.
