Prison Chaplain Says Gospel Could Save Entire Generation

All it took was three words to stir the heart of Lyn Turner and move her to act with compassion toward her fellow man.

Mrs Turner had been deeply impacted by the words of a friend, who questioned why she would want to minister to prisoners, as “they’re only crims”.

Over the last four years she has been bringing the Gospel to inmates as part of Inside Out Prison Chaplaincy in southeast Queensland.

She told Eternity News that if prisoners are shown understanding and love, their attitude and perspective on life can be changed dramatically.

Chaplain Turner says when you break the crime cycle within a family and a person comes to Christ, you can potentially save an entire generation.

She says while it does take time to listen, encourage, support, and explain the Bible to prisoners, the reward of seeing lives changed makes it all worthwhile.
