Cookies for Prison Ministry Update

A couple of you wondered in the comments about how we got the cookies delivered and how to do something like this.

Someone at our church coordinated this for us - so I just dropped my cookies off at church during the Wednesday evening service. However, you might appreciate knowing about Kairos Prison Ministry. The cookies we took were for this ministry and they have programs nation-wide.

They are so serious about the cookie baking, they provide guidelines, recipes and all kinds of helpful info for your baking. If you click on Locations - you can choose your state and be taken to the personalized web page for your state ministry locations.

It was interesting to note that the prison where Brittany's mom was listed as one of the participating ones when I checked another state. You just never know how this will bless a family even down the road!

What a great idea. Our church has recently had our eyes opened to the realities of life in prison. A dear man from our church was convicted of a serious crime (we all believe he is innocent) and has been in prison for 2 years. Thankfully, his conviction was just overturned, (Praise the Lord!!) but I certainly have much more heart for those who are in prison and the loneliness they experience.
