Goals:
  • 1. To brighten the life of an inmate by encouragement and scripture through mail.
  • 2. To witness and give hope to someone who thinks others have forgotten them.
  • 3. To share the Joy and Love of Jesus Christ.
Principles:
To provide encouraging mail to inmates who do not receive mail.
(Many inmates feel their families and friends have forgotten them.)
To send the inmate an uplifting card on their birthday.
To encourage, and witness the "Love of God" to inmates through cards and letters.
To plant a seed of God’s Love and to reassure that there is hope.
To share poetry, art work, and testimonies, from other inmates in a monthly newsletter.
To provide Bibles, where possible, to inmates that request or need one.
(Co-ordinated through the Chaplains Office.)
To increase the call of men and women reached in our prisons.
To deliver, where possible, devotional booklets to inmates who need encouragement in dealing with individual issues.
(Depression, Anger, Drugs, etc.)
