Inmates pray at the Women’s Correctional Institution for Drug Addicts in Bangkok, Thailand. Through the Christian Prison Ministry Foundation, inmates participate weekly in teaching and worship, in this case led by Tiwan, a former prisoner herself who met Christ inside prison walls. Missionary Jack Martin began the Thai prison ministry in 1971. When he retired in 2000, he turned it over to Pastor Soonthorn Soonthorntarawong. By 2009, the prison ministry had reached into 60 prisons throughout Thailand and received commendations from the King of Thailand.
