January 18, 2013 

MERCED — There is a spiritual revival going on at the John Latorraca Adult Correctional Facility on Sandy Mush Road in the El Nido area, James Sanders, chaplain for the Merced County Jail Ministry, believes.

Sanders said easily 15 to 20 percent of the prisoners at the county's jail facility are Christians and another 20 percent are interested in the Christian message. He visits the jails nearly every day.
