Letter #33 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.
Last night, I was talking to a friend about the power of our words. What we say shapes what we believe, and our experience of life. Our words are powerful.
Proverbs 18:21 (NIV) says, “The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.”
The Bible also says our tongues are small, but can change the direction of our lives. Just like a ship’s rudder is small, and the bit in a horse’s mouth is small, but both have the power to change direction. In the same way, the tongue is like a spark that can set a forest on fire (James 3:3-5).
Watch the words that come out. They will create your world.
Praying for you in Jesus’ Name,
Proverbs 18:21 and James 3:3-5
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.
