Letter #20 to a Woman in Prison

Letter #20 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.


Dear ______,

Have you seen the popular way to paint furniture nowadays? It’s to make it look “distressed.” There are all sorts of “how to” and Do It Yourself articles and videos on the internet and in magazines to teach us how to make “an instant antique.”

The distressed look is also popular when it comes to jeans and hairstyles. Do you know someone who has bought a brand new pair of jeans that has perfectly ripped holes in them? You can actually learn how to fix your hair in a “messy bun.”

What’s the deal with messy and distressed being popular? Maybe it is because life isn’t perfect, and we don’t feel “put together” inside.

No matter what we look like on the outside, there is only One way to put our lives in order, and that is by lining up to the Word of God. When we find our lives in distress, we can turn to the God of order who can pull us back together again. Allow Him to turn your stress and distress into peace.

1 Corinthians 14:33 says, “For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.”

Praying for you in Jesus’ Name,

Rachael Hartman
1 Corinthians 14:33


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.
