Franco Santoriello shares his powerful testimony with the prisoners about how his life was radically changed by the grace and mercy of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For 3 years Franco was in prison himself and he understands how hopeless these men and women can be, especially if they do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Franco’s empathetic and compassionate heart for the incarcerated is evident as he shares his heartfelt life story with the inmates.
