An American delegation visited the Tripoli and Baabda prisons for women giving gifts to prisoners.
During the event, Sister Joy gave her testimony in the prison courtyard in front of all prisoners:
I was homeless, often roaming around in the streets seeking a shelter where I could sleep or a compassionate person who would give me a piece of bread to eat.
For years, I knew what it meant to be hungry, thirsty, cold as well as emotionally and morally drained. I tried to fill my emptiness with drugs, alcohol and outrageous acts that led me to prison, where I spent ten years of my life. It was there that I came to know the Lord as my Savior, and surrendered my life to Him.

Sister Joy invited the prisoners to accept Jesus as their Savior! The impact of her words was quite evident on the faces of her audience.

It has been a trend every year. The Evangelical Council is accompanied by Grade 10 students from the Beirut Baptist School (BBS) and Rabieh Evangelical school. It is nice to see that these young teenagers cared enough to leave their school and come and spend quality time with them. The interaction is quite unique and memorable for both students and prisoners, with the former learning many a lesson from the mistakes of those who are now behind bars.  Both schools have been keen on raising active community-focused generations who are sensitized to the needs of the people around them. We need more such initiatives in our country.
