Pathway to Freedom Ownership Transfer
After more than 28 years leading in-prison ministry, it was time to transfer ownership and leadership of "Pathway to Freedom (PTF)." We are pleased to announce that the We Care Program ministry has graciously accepted the mantle of ownership of PTF. Their ministry began in 1970 and has been heavily involved in PTF in both the men and ladies facilities.
We Care Program has assistant chaplains in many Alabama state prisons. My prayer is that PTF will be able to expand under their leadership to even more prisons, disciplining even more men and women to be committed, Christ-followers. Please visit their website at www.wecareprogram.org.
May God bless you as you seek to obey His will for your life.
We are nearing completion of the first Landing Zone site in Central, AL. Our critical need is installation of a mini-split HVAC system for the resident trailer. We have created a GoFundMe page, where you can donate and help us get this need met. You all know how hot Alabama summers can be. This button will take you to our funding page.
You can also follow this second button to our site for Central. It will show you the latest updates.
A Personal Reflection by Jim
"Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth, shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert." (Isaiah 43:19)
The chill in the air was no match for the cold terror that gripped me as I entered the receiving area for Staton prison. Chain link fences with razor wire and locked gates now kept me separated from the life I knew. This new, unfamiliar world loomed over me as an invisible "Goliath" taunting me with fear and bone crushing despair.
The Marvelous Wisdom of God
Your tax deductible donations are used for curriculum and supplies used inside the prisons as well as our transition facility. Our newest project involves developing a microgreen re-entry farm for women graduates of the in-prison program to live and work after their release. More to follow soon. God bless you.
Compassionately reducing recidivism by helping individuals while incarcerated to develop a foundation of spiritual wellness and providing post-release connection to community resources and support groups, thereby promoting responsible and productive citizens, stronger families and safer communities.
