April Update on the Pen Pal Program


Written by Steve Hawkins, KM

“ … I was in prison and you visited [wrote] me … “

Pen Pals continue to provide a desperately needed connection with Christ and the outside world for so many of our brothers and sisters who are serving time inside the walls. While you and I are returning to a new normal everyday life freer of restrictions, those inside still suffer from severe isolation and loneliness. 

Each week we receive new applications from men and women anxious for confirmation that they haven’t been forgotten or abandoned. Just days ago we heard to words of Dismiss “Lord, remember me…” . While we are Christ’s workers here on earth, let us assure those insider the walls that they are not forgotten. It only requires a few minutes of your time each month to make a difference in the life of those we serve. Won’t you join us?
