Gangs terrorise El Salvador, making it one of the most dangerous countries in the world. Once someone is involved in a gang, leaving is not easy and former members are often threatened with violence and even death.
The Bible Society of El Salvador reaches out to gang members who find themselves serving time in prison, supporting them and helping them to discover the God of the Bible. There is an opportunity for any prisoner expressing interest to attend Bible School. During their studies, prisoners are often changed as they encounter Jesus and hear about the forgiveness and the new life he offers.
