Volunteers shine beacon of hope on MBCC inmates

MCLOUD, Okla. -- There is light seeping in through the fractures of incarceration. The non-profit group Prison Fellowship brought a night of hope to Mabel Bassett Correctional Center. 

Teresa Stanfield is a former ODOC inmate who now has a passion for prison ministry. She’s now the Oklahoma Field Director. Stanfield said, “It’s been life changing! I would have never dreamed 10 year ago that I would be standing up here in front of you.”

Prison Fellowship was created to have an enduring impact on inmates. Volunteer that bring Holy hope to cellmates, who in turn share it with families and communities where they will eventually return. Volunteer pat Mills said, “When I see the faces of the so many of the inmates and I see their hearts, and they don’t want to be here. So many are people who have committed a crime or sin and have regret so deeply. And they want to go home. We feel if a person’s heart changes, the chances of them staying home is very great.

Pat and husband Stan mills received the national “Charles Colson Award” for faithfully serving Oklahoma’s incarcerated for 30 years. Stan Mills said, “That’s how we know God is not done with us yet because we woke up this morning.”

Prison Fellowship is devoted to offenders who desperately crave hope and want to be released from the prison of guilt and shame. According to Mills, “I feel God gives me words to say to water. We have led some people to the Lord. Somebody else has done all that watering and all that planting. We are so honored to see somebody come to the Lord.”

A two hour prison revival – planting a lifetime of restoration.
