In our newest Changed program, Akkarin Puri shares how his sister’s steady influence and God’s love has transformed him from an angry prisoner to a joyful guitar maker.
Akkarin says as a teen he was in and out of detention centers where he developed even more bad habits and a drug addiction, then he went to prison.
Akkarin’s sister was desperate to help her brother and turned to the Lord. She prayed for her brother and told him about Christ. Akkarin surrendered to Christ and prayed to be released from prison for a new start. The Lord answered Akkarin’s prayer in a miraculous way.
The Christian Prison Ministry Foundation provided vocational and biblical training for Akkarin during a critical time in his life. He developed new habits and received training as a guitar technician.
Akkarin wants to help others who are seeking God. He says, “I assure you that God is 100% true and real. I can’t keep it to myself. I have to tell everyone and give hope to all who are searching for Him.”
