Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Psalm 82:3

What if there are children who will suffer somehow because I failed to obey God?
What if my cowardice costs even one child somewhere in the world his or her life?

The Itinerary: Going to Prison

VO has a newer ministry they've been working with. It's called Sixty Feet. It's a Children's prison. It's not what you think.

Apparently there is a section of the "prison" for children from 0 - 12 and one for teenagers. There are about 120 children in each section. I put a link to the right about this ministry. God has already moved some rather large mountains to say the least! Why the name "Sixty Feet"? You'll have to read the story behind the name for yourself :o)
