Returning Hearts Celebration

Dear Friends,

On behalf of our staff, our partners around the United States and beyond, and the over 10,000 incarcerated men and women that we served this past year, I want to thank you for your prayers and support this past year.

I would like to give added thanks to all of our friends who were able to answer the call of our Give to Restore end-of-year campaign. Your generosity, along with all the other donors throughout the year, are setting us up to have another transformational year of ministry. To date, we have raised more than $113,000 since the campaign started in early November – with almost $9,000 toward Give to Restore!

Take a look at what we have been blessed with in 2024.

  • We are extremely excited by the dozen new facilities reached in Arizona this past year and hope to see similar growth in Utah, Illinois, and North Carolina this next year.
  • After three years of absence, Lifeline Global has been invited to return to Angola State Prison to conduct a Returning Hearts Celebration. 
  • That same week, we will also be represented at the Texas Chaplains Association meeting where we hope to continue to grow our ministry. Did you know that Texas has 64 prisons with over 135,000 behind bars? Hopefully, you will join us prayerfully in reaching a greater population in this state.
  •  The following month, we are with our partners in Georgia for RHC at Walker State Prison.
  • Please be praying for our work in California – especially as it relates to Folsom State Prison. It has been an eight-year journey, but we hope to see some Malachi Dads graduate in 2024 from this population.

Join us in prayer and support as we push down on the ministry accelerator this year. If you know of opportunities available to Lifeline Global in a federal, state, or county facility near you, please let us know at

Here is to a blessed New Year.

In His Name,
Dr. Romney Ruder
