What do we do when situations in our lives seem, not just challenging, but completely hopeless? In this week’s conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Ronnie Olivier. Ronnie served 27 summers in the notorious Louisiana State Penitentiary known as Angola. He has recently released his memoir, “27 Summers,” which shares his journey to freedom, forgiveness, and redemption. Together, Ronnie and Jason explore how we can find Jesus, even in the midst of the most hopeless situations. Ronnie also shares his experiences at the most dangerous prison in the U.S. and how he went from incarceration to restoration, not only as a Christ follower but also as a minister of the gospel.
