Our B90 prison initiative was launched in 2017, and we were amazed at the rapid response from several prisons for the B90 materials. Hunger for God’s Word among prisoners has increased in America. Men and women are experiencing genuine heart-change and new purpose for their lives by simply reading through the Bible, because God reveals Himself through His written Word.
Over the last two years, Scripture Awakening has been given grant monies to be directed to prisons and transitional ministries in Texas. God has opened numerous doors, presenting us with opportunities to reach inmates for Christ Jesus. We have begun B90 classes in 19 prisons in the state of Texas alone … with more to come!
