Letter #17 of 36. Each woman who attends the prison ministry weekend will receive a handwritten letter from each volunteer. Please pray for us as we prepare for the weekend.
Do you like to write? I love to write. It relaxes me. I communicate the best through writing. I love reading too. I love stories.
Writing can be very therapeutic. Even creative writing. Try writing a story the next time you feel lonely. Create characters, let them talk, and live out their drama on the page.
What are your characters like? What do they say? What happens in their lives?
Stories are important. We communicate life by sharing our stories. We share life lessons and principals for living through our stories.
Jesus shared stories. The Bible calls those stories “parables.” It was the easiest way to get a message across, touch people’s hearts, and make an impression they would not forget.
We can share our testimonies through our stories too. Sharing out testimony brings victory. Try writing your story and sharing it with someone. You never know how it will impact their life.
Praying for you in Jesus’ Name,
I’m raising money to help pay for this weekend. $150 will pay for one female inmate to attend the Kairos prison ministry I’m volunteering at.
If you would like to donate to the prison ministry, it needs to be in the form of a check made out to: KPMI (which stands for Kairos Prison Ministry International). In the memo put: Pulaski, GA. You can mail it to me, Rachael Hartman, at: PO Box 501, Bloomingdale, GA 31302. If you want a tax credit, include your full name and address on a note and they will mail you a tax receipt.
Thank you so much for your support and prayers! Every $5 goes to pay for a meal for one of the inmates that weekend. The meal will have a tag with your name on it. And we will have a paper chain link that will also have your names on a link to show that you have prayed for and invested into the weekend. Praise God for what He will do! Please keep me in your prayers as I will be speaking on Obstacles to Accepting God’s Grace, and sharing part of my own testimony in the process.
To add your name to the prayer chain (which will be visualized with a paper link chain – your name will be on one link) please leave a comment below. And please pray for Kairos #40 ~ Pulaski Women’s State Prison in Georgia. Kairos weekend happening August 25-28, 2016.
