Segovia Unit Outreach
Choose to Change
On July 29, 2017, Choose to Change Ministries and The Door CFM were granted permission to go into the Lopez and Segovia Units in Edinburg Texas, and present the message of Jesus Christ. The gospel message was delivered through live music/concert and true-life testimonies by those who have been in the prisoner’s shoes before and by family members who’s had a loved one was in jail.
This Prison Invasion team consisted of several church volunteers from McAllen and Weslaco, several rap groups; Detox, SWAG, and Revelation and powerful testimonies from Evangelist Orlando Salinas, Isabel Salinas, and several others. This outreach had such a great impact towards the prisoners, because it gave them something that they haven’t heard before.
When it came to the testimonies, several prisoners broke into tears. Hearing testimonies from ex-prisoners and family members that have gone through the situations moved many of these men. Several prisoners prayed accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Orlando then challenged the inmates to make a choice to make a difference in their lives and about 95% stood up making that powerful decision. It’s still amazing to see how God moves in many ways.
