Visitors of the Latter Rain Assembly, who visited the prison on Easter Friday to donate some items to the prison and encourage the prisoners, were treated to an exciting performance by the band.

Keeping themselves engaged with music will help them live positively and avoid bad association, while also helping with depression.

Their initiative is a good one. It will surely serve as a catalyst for other better things in the future.
