Marriage Seminar Hughes Unit

Tomorrow we meet up with a wonderful team of volunteers in Gatesville, Texas, to prepare for a “Marriage Seminar” for 33 very special inmate couples.

The Hughes Unit is a very large prison with almost 3,000 prisoners. Many of these men have long sentences. One of the wives coming has not seen her husband in eight years. Two of the wives are coming from Europe. We need your prayers.

WVIW Marriage Seminar

Pray for the wives to have traveling mercies, no child care problems, no financial issues, and no health concerns. Pray the same for the volunteers. Pray the prison will be receptive to us and that peace will reign during the seminar. Pray for favor with the officers and staff of the prison.

The Hughes Unit in Gatesville, Tx is where Worldwide Voice In the Wilderness  held our very first “Marriage Seminar” in Texas in 1995. Since then we have held about 100 seminars in the prisons of Texas, with close to 2,500 marriages touched.

Worldwide Voice In the Wilderness has received two Texas State Governor's Awards for Marriage Seminar ministry in prisons. They are the primary outreach of WVIW.

Thank you for praying and for giving. 

Johnny Moffitt

At Worldwide Voice in the Wilderness we strive to make every one of our Marriage Seminars the most blessed and life changing events you will ever attend. Our mission is to Save Marriages, Rebuild Lives, and Keep Families Together.

From the 3 days of uninterrupted time with your spouse, to the incredible true life stories, every second of the weekend is filled with a huge measure of grace and aimed at life change.

Whether you have been married a hundred years or only one, have the best relationship or you can’t remember why you married your spouse to begin with, this seminar is for YOU!
