Spotlight: Changing lives behind bars

NAIROBI, Kenya — In this East African nation, prison officials yearn for someone to help offenders “learn to change their conduct — cursing, lying … stealing, sexual immorality, gambling,” longtime missionary Charlotte Hackett said.

She believes the New Life Behavior course is an answer.
