Ministry to our friends, the prisoners of Kalungu

How did our friendship begin? It is very interesting. My first contact with Kalungu Prison was through the prison warden.

There were 25 prisoners who came. They dug well and did the planting. One of them said, 'When we come to work for you, we are not abused. We are not called thieves or murderers. Often people run away as we pass by. They don't want to associate with us. But you are different. You seem to love us.'
