Great article and well written, had my attention. I have also been in prison, to entertain on Family Day for prisoners and their guests. The first time getting approved and on the "count out" was very interesting. later I was able to write and send encouraging information and be a fiend, so needed.
Keep up the good work.

This is a well done report of your experience in prison ministry. I can see it being used to recruit others to join you.
I think you did an amazing job of telling people what the real deal is on the inside...the blank faces, the hopeless faces...the broken faces. I was once one of those broken inmates, and church services always made the monotony of rigid routines and boredom bearable. In fact, prison is where I met precious Jesus and gave my life to Him--and it was through people like you that He used. So, people like you pay off--big time! Thanks for your work. And thanks for your story. It was well written, poignant, and effectively communicated.
Ministering to inmates in prison is a tough ministry. I am reminded of where Jesus said, "I was in prison and you came to me" (Mat. 25:36). Thank you for sharing.
