Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly [is] great, but the laborers [are] few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest - Luke 10:2.

By Raymond Cantu


Please pray for the continuation of this ministry as Raymond went home to be with our Lord and Savior in August 2015


Raymond Cantu has been doing prison work for many years. He started out as a volunteer with Johnny Gonzales Prison Door Ministries and now has branched out on his own. This ministry goes into Prisons in Texas once every other month for the weekend preaching the gospel to those incarcerated. it is amazing to see how the Holy Spirit humbles the lives of troubled souls bringing many to their knees seeking forgiveness and redemption from sin. This is a ministry for anyone. Volunteers range from those that were ex offenders, parents and children of offenders, or just the basic run of the mill lay person seeking to fulfill all of Jesus' commandments which states we are to visit those imprison.  

Raymond truly has a heart and passion for the lost and welcomes all volunteers who have integrity to do the will of Jesus behind bars locked in for the weekend with those who have lead a wayward life. 


"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

The Raymond Cantu Prison Ministry is an amazing opportunity to see many souls come to Yahweh and others renew their relationship in a powerful way. This ministry takes groups of 20 plus individuals into Texas prisons for evangelism. The group goes in on Saturday and Sunday from 7 am to 6 pm each day. We minister in music, testimonies, the preaches word, opportunities for prayer and two-by-two sharing in a supervised environment although none are allowed to leave the prison once admitted for the day. Guards are present at all times and by following the directives of the prison it is a safe environment to evangelize in.

We serve nachos, Kool-Aid and cookies to the inmates. Individuals are encouraged to bring their musical instruments or accompaniment cds. If you have a skit or a talent that will be conducive within the confines of the prisons it will be welcomed. I would imagine praise dancing would be great and perhaps worship flags but those need to be explored with Raymond Cantu. The volunteers come from all walks of life. Some are ex-offenders, some with children incarcerated, other have experienced abuse and very traumatic situations. The volunteers range in age from teens to grandparents. This ministry do not share religion only the gospel. In other words denomination will not be an issue.

Here is the link for the ministry info. The application is available for each outreach. The first time on outreach one can go as a special volunteer but after that you must submit an application with the Texas Department of Correction for a half a day training. This ministry only cost travel to and from the prison and hotel room for the two nights. Four persons usually stay in a room so it is cost effective. You can usually hitch a ride with some one if they are in your area.

I hope that you will consider joining this ministry. Outreaches are every other month. Feel free to contact Raymond if you have questions.
