In this twenty-second episode of the Detention to Redemption podcast, I interview Ahmed Karim Handfield, from Fayetteville, Georgia. Karim is a former correctional officer and currently involved in prison ministry as a rap artist, singer, and song writer who was converted from the Muslim faith by the love of Christ. He has performed at over 400 functions in places such as New York, Maryland, Alabama, Georgia, and the two cities of Dakar and St. Louis, Senegal in West Africa. He currently raps at different events in Georgia and abroad while touching the heart of God’s people right where they are. He has opened up for Stevie Wonder, December Radio, Classic rappers Heavy D, and Big Daddy Kane.
Karim shares with us his testimony of how he received Jesus as his LORD and SAVIOR and how he feels that his assignment from GOD is to promote the Gospel with simplicity and understanding without compromise. He talks about his experiences as a correctional officer and how that has shaped his ministry today to the incarcerated. Karim’s passion to make a positive contribution to communities all around the world and especially to those in prison will inspire you to engage in prison ministry!
