12 Baptized at Women’s Correctional Center

August 22, 2023

MUSKOGEE, OKLA. – Recently, a remarkable event took place at the Dr. Eddie Warrior Correctional Center in Taft, Okla. Twelve inmates were baptized through the compassionate efforts of the dedicated prison ministry crew from the Muskogee Seventh-day Adventist Church. The joy that filled the air during this momentous occasion was palpable, and it moved those who witnessed it to express their own desire to prepare for the next baptism. For more than three decades, members from the Muskogee church have faithfully ministered to the women at this facility, guiding them toward truth and spiritual transformation through the sacred act of baptism.

Jack Stout, Judy Paden, Judi Stout and Tom Sullivan are the steadfast members of the ministry team. Unwavering commitment has played a pivotal role in bringing about this meaningful and life-changing event. They have taken the powerful verse in Matthew 25 to heart, “I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

For more than 31 years, many lives have been changed through this effort, including the lives of those of the volunteers. One of the team members says, “Being involved in the prison ministry has changed my life. It has made me more compassionate toward people from every walk of life, and I’m so grateful that God has given me this opportunity to witness in this way!” Please keep this ministry in your prayers. We pray that God will bless us with many more lives changed!
