Prison ministry continues to transform the nations jails. Revival began in Olmos high-security prison, with half of its 3,000 inmates now believers, and spread to 200 other institutions. An estimated 25% of prisoners are Christian; one prison, Cristo la Uníca Esperanza, is the only completely evangelical prison in Latin America. Around 250 pastors work in prisons.
