MAY - Mission of the Month

UNITE - Prison Ministry and Tabitha's House

Prison ministry is still active and vibrant, and has been throughout the down times and up times.  I still appreciate the paperback book donations, particularly Stephen King, Lee Child and other highly popular authors.  I spend about two days a week answering requests from the residents; sending books to the men and women, from the library through inter-office

Still our most exciting function at the jail is our reentry program.  Our Chaplain Jonathan is responding to requests from men and women in residence with us, who want to participate after their release.  He contacts them about their specific needs; training, employment, housing, transportation, spiritual help, rehab, family needs and so forth.  Those who respond are provided with a caseworker and all the contacts they have at their disposal, to make a solution possible so we minimize the chances of their return to the county jail in the future.

At our spring breakfast, former residents get up and tell us about the many successes of the program in their lives.  Praise God!  It is for this program we are requesting funds this month.

Please continue to pray for the reinstatement of Kairos Prison Ministry at Central Prison.  I've spent 23 years serving in this program and it had a remarkable impact on the men there, until COVID.

Again, prayers please for those who are incarcerated (read Matthew 25): 'When I was in jail you visited me'.
