Special screening at NLC!!


Sunday, July 9, 6pm

This documentary film features NLC's Jesus Ruiz, former prison inmate, leader of the Latin Kings (Lowell, MA), and now Servant of Jesus Christ! Brother Ruiz serves NLC as an usher and Bus Driver, and he and wife Wanda head up "Off The Streets Ministry" an outreach ministry via Common Ground Ministries at the Cafe on Winter Street, Haverhill, each Saturday.

"Beyond the Wall highlights one of the most critical issues in criminal justice reform: the many prisoners returning to their communities each year where they face tremendous challenges and barriers. The film follows five formerly incarcerated men who are attempting to rebuild their lives on the outside with little support from the U.S. criminal justice system. Through this compelling and personal account, the film vividly shows their struggles and strategies for survival beyond the walls of jail and prison." (

All invited and encouraged to spread the word! Following the screening of the film, Brother Ruiz and follow advocate, Louie Diaz will share their dramatic testimonies of the life changing power of Jesus Christ!
