We have been involved in prison ministry going on 8 years. I can't believe it's been that long. I know I said it before, but when we committed to 2 years, I really expected to be moving back to PA 2 years later! The south just kind of grows on you and we have a wonderful church family here who made us feel so at home!! I really like the small town atmosphere!
However, each year, it gets harder and harder to raise the support funds we need. We finally realized that it might be helpful to let others know, monthly, what is going on in the ministry, what our needs are and what God is doing in our family's lives, so you know how to pray....or give. :P Not sure why we couldn't see that sooner!?? ;) So, this year, we are going to send out a monthly newsletter, with a section dedicated to the work in the prison and a section on family happenings.
If you would be interested in receiving this e-letter, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and give us your email address (or post it in the comments if you are comfortable with that). We'd love to have you partner with us in prayer, just as much as financially! There are some great things happening in the local FL prisons! And our family can use prayer as we work through some health issues and just in seeking God's will for our future!
We would love to send out a printed newsletter, but at this point can't see putting the $$ into postage, so we will start with email updates. IF you know of someone who would be interested in receiving the letter, but they don't have email, let us know that as well. We would be happy to send a few snail mail! :)
The first letter, which will cover January, should be finished by the end of the week....yeh, we are a little behind! :P Thanks for taking an interest in the prison ministry!! :)
