Dr. Sam Huddleston, Assemblies of God leader in Northern California/Nevada, recently accepted a speaking invitation at the infamous Soledad Prison. Three chapel services offered Huddleston opportunities to talk about the serious water needs he saw first hand while visiting in Africa. Following his visit to Soledad a check was received for The Africa Oasis Project. A total of $1,000.00 was received in the offerings collected during chapel services.
Rev. Judge Lindsey, a chaplain at Soledad Prison, explained that the residents there earn between $25 and $40 per month. These funds are used to provide for their personal needs. The inmates’ chapel offering exhibited true sacrificial giving from their meager earnings to bring hope to Africa.
