Omar met Christ in prison, later became pastor of the prison Assembly of God group, and upon release formed a ministry to reach out both to the imprisoned and those released. VOM in Mexico started within the prison ministry, and found men who responded from their hearts with compassion and concern for others imprisoned simply for following and sharing Christ! Omar continues to support VOM in Mexico through prayer and offerings. Other VOM staff are also reaching into prisons in high risk states and seeing a similar response. With the increased violence in Mexico, the Body of Christ and believers are increasingly at risk because of their Christian faith… not just in Indigena communities, but also where there are radical insurgent groups and those who find their livelihood threatened by the presence of revival and changed lives.
