REMEMBER THOSE IN PRISON
Prisons are cold and isolating places. Separated from all that they have ever known or loved, men and women behind bars struggle with feelings of guilt, despair, and hopelessness. As they pay the price for past behavior and poor choices, they long for a time when they can be restored—healed from the wounds of their old lives and reconciled to the ones they have hurt.
For 40 years, Prison Fellowship has been working to bring about healing in the lives of prisoners, their families, and their communities. With the help of corrections officials and volunteers, we seek to make prisons places of rehabilitation where justice is served, lives are transformed, and healing can begin.
In fall of 2015, Idalee and Prison Fellowship teamed up to produce a music video documentary in a Houston-area prison. Idalee came in for a couple days, and joined with a band from inside the prison to perform the song for the general prison population. The audience of incarcerated men had an amazing time—they loved the song and they loved talking with Idalee and his production team. The crew recorded the men's stories of searching for healing in prison, and the brokenness that many of them still feel.
HELP US HEAL THOSE BEHIND BARS
Prison Fellowship exists to bring healing to prisoners and their families. Through in-prison programming, events, mentorship and support for those outside the bars, we seek to restore those impacted by the cycle of crime and incarceration. We invite you to learn more about the work Prison Fellowship is doing by signing up for our weekly newsletter, filled with stories of transformation, updates on advocacy opportunities, and stories of men and women learning what it means to be healed and restored.
