Youth Prison Outreach "Drug Free"
"Drug Free", a KidsQuest drug prevention show, was performed at the Youth Prison in Pattaya on Feb 25, by a KidsQuest team sponsored by World Vision Thailand.
After the powerful drug prevention message, an evangelist from a local church came and ministered to the prisoners, who were from 13-17 years old. About 250 (of the over 600 prisoners) prayed to receive Jesus and were given Bibles. The church group will come each week to the prison to teach them.
A group of Thai government officials were present at this outreach. Later, they approached us to thank us and invite us to do outreaches at more youth prisons in other areas. Over 80% of Thai youth prisoners are in jail due to drug related crimes.
