Dear ______,

Did you ever watch the Disney cartoon, Bambi? My favorite line of the whole movie is where the bunny, Thumper, tells Bambi, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.”

It’s hard to control our mouths when we are frustrated. Usually when I’m frustrated, even if I try to be nice, my words come out wrong and my frustration shows itself. If we can’t say something nice, it’s better not to say anything at all

Proverbs 17:28 says, “Even a fool, when he keeps silent, is considered wise; When he closes his lips, he is considered prudent (wise).”

Take your words to God before you take them to other people. He will give you His words, which are sweeter than honey (Psalm 119:103).

Praying for you in Jesus’ Name,

Rachael Hartman
Proverbs 17:28 and Psalm 119:103

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.
