For the bulk of the past 10 years, I’ve been on one side of Angel Tree®. As a writer for Prison Fellowship® on a national level, I get to hear and write about all of the amazing things that happen during December and beyond, as children and incarcerated parents around the country reconnect through gifts purchased and delivered by volunteers.
Earlier this week we shared the story of Michelle Payette, volunteer Angel Tree® Area Director for New York. Today we bring you a story from Veronica Huang, an Angel Tree volunteer from Michelle’s church, Grace Chapel of Clifton Park.
The letter that arrived at Grace Chapel was unexpected.
Bill Cameron describes his life in and out of prison as "a vicious cycle" of incarceration—a cycle he struggled to break.
Success is more easily achieved when you have supporters who genuinely care for you. Just ask Bobby Lopez. In this week's Prison Fellowship® Insider, Bobby shares how Prison Fellowship's InnerChange Freedom Initiative® helped him become a new man.
One of the most endearing stories Chuck Colson shared is found in his book Loving God. He wrote of Myrtie Howell—a 91 year-old woman he met in an “old folks’ home” in Georgia.
Myrtie was born poor, had only one year of schooling, and was married at age 17.
I’ve taught a Bible study in the local church for over 25 years. Once a week I would arrive about 15 minutes early, get my materials out, and chat with any of the women who came early while we waited for the others to arrive.
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to go into prison?
Prison Fellowship is introducing a new video series where viewers can see what it is like to take a message of transformation to men and women behind bars.
“Prison Fellowship Insider” will provide a chance to look behind the scenes of the ministry.
