Restoring Broken Families to Wholeness in Jesus Christ
Rivers of Regret
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
The Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor;
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives. Isaiah 61.1

Meet Virginia SandersonWhat can one person do? Virginia’s compassion for prisoners is borne out of her generosity of faith in Jesus Christ. She has stepped forward to give of herself because of the immense love God has poured into her. Through tragedy, trials, and tested perseverance, she tells an unforgettable story of how each of us is needed to do our part. What makes Virginia unique? She would say: only Jesus.
Faith the size of a postage stamp. Sometimes money for one stamp or one Bible or one encouraging card helps communicate the love of Jesus. Virginia sees the simple needs that will have profound impact.
What does Jesus see? Whatever you do for a prisoner, Jesus considers it your gift to Him, according to Matthew 25.
All prisoners and their families have stories of heartbreak. Not all prisoners are criminals. Not all prisoners are evil.
Brother’s Keeper Ministry is about doing simple things to bring the Light of Christ to prisoners and their families for lasting change.

“Coming back here has really been hard on my children and me. My 11 year old son is with my mom and is very angry. I am seeking the Lord like I never have before. I’m tired of sin in my life that has robbed me of my youth and children. The Lord is showing me another way to live and I know He is with me.” P.D. Chowchilla
“I’ve been in and out of jail and prison most of my life. I ran from God each time through my stupidity and fears that I can’t explain. In 2004 I accepted the Lord as my personal Savior and my belief and acceptance still stands strong.” V.D. Tehachapi
“I couldn’t stay out of trouble and was arrested for a gun and drugs. So much for doing things my way. Now I spend time in God’s Word and it has shown me how God changes people on the inside. I have found a better way – God’s Way.” O.H. Tehachapi
“I’ve come back to the Lord after many years of backsliding and self-delusion. I know the Lord loves me and protects me daily. I was shot 5 times and survived. I’ve known in real terms the love of our Lord since that time.” Imperial
“Thank you for all you do to make our day go by with the Word of God. It opened my eyes and I see what life is all about now. I know I made mistakes and I thank Jesus for dying in my place.” Avenal, CA
