After an invitation from the prison warden, a team of 15 Diospi Suyana staff members visited the prison in Abancay on Saturday. They treated 120 inmates and gave out the medicines free of charge. Dr Zeyse performed 13 operations under local anaesthetic.
All the prisoners watched a christian movie about a prison in Louisiana. The message was clear, “God is everywhere – even in prison!”. Like many times before, Stefan Höfer organised the whole event perfectly. The prisoners got a clear glimpse of God´s love through the hands and words of the team.
Jesus said ”The king will say to those on his right, ´Come you blessed of my father……I was hungrry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you took me in……I was in prison and you came and visited me.” (Matthew 25:34-36 in excerpts).
