"The need of Mexican prisoners is so great" said Tom Flaskerud, founder of the Freedom Team. "Many prisoners we see don't have basic personal hygiene items. We would like to be able to meet the basic personal hygiene needs of these new Believers as well as their basic spiritual needs. With the 'Champion for a Prisoner Project' we hope to give every Prisoner who prays to receive Jesus Christ a bar of soap, toothbrush, tube of toothpaste, roll of toilet paper, and a Spanish New Testament."

In the last 12 months the Freedom Team has traveled to Mexico several times and conducted 26 Mexican Prison Power Explosions. The Team's messages were blessed as over 4,000 Mexican Prisoners recorded decisions to follow Jesus Christ.

You can be involved in the 'Champion for a Prisoner Project' by purchasing a bar of soap, a toothbrush, 8 oz. tube of toothpaste, roll of toilet paper, put them in a zippy bag and send them along with $10.00 to the Freedom Team. With the $10.00 donation they will purchase the Spanish New Testament and deliver the Champion Kit to a Mexican Prisoner who will be receiving Christ. If you prefer, send a $15.00 donation for each Champion Kit and they will purchase these items for you.

The 'Champion for a Prisoner Project' provides basic hygiene needs for these new Believers and conveys the truth that they are not forgotten. For those who have a heart for Mexican prisoners the Team is encouraging people to have a 'Champion Night' by inviting their friends over and putting together Champion Kits.

The Freedom Team, founded in 1982, uses physical skills and feats of strength to illustrate the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. The last 12 years the Team has been specializing in Prison Power Explosions within the Pacific Northwest and has now expanded into Mexico's prisons. "We have conducted Mexican Prison Power Explosions in Nogales, Magdalena, San Luis, Puerto PeƱasco, Tijuana, Ensenada, Mexicali, and Hermosillo, Mexico. God has given us favor with the Prison Directors and leaders in the Mexican prisons" said Team spokeswoman, Carla Flaskerud.
