I'm hoping that caught your attention! :)
I need a quick turn around on this and need your answer by tomorrow.
I've been asked to speak at a Women's Prison on December 4th
and I get to bring some girl friends with me to help out.
(Sorry guys, there will be other opportunities for you too.)
One of the sweetest things about this prison is the inmates we will be serving are pregnant. Not sure exactly what you would do-- probably just greet and talk to the inmates as they come and go. I know you all have busy schedules and the holidays are crazy, but I can't encourage you enough to free up your Saturday if you can.
Here are the details:
Saturday, December 4th
Dickinson, TX (about an hour drive0. We would meet to carpool.
We'd probably be gone 10-2ish. I'll get those details soon.
SEND ME YOUR LEGAL NAME AND DRIVER'S LICENSE #
BY SUNDAY to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can make a final decision after that.
But the State has to have the names to do clearance checks before you go.
If the thought of this scares you. You aren't alone.
I was so anxious the first time I went.
Here's a blog I wrote afterwards: "The Day I Went to Prison."
As far as your safety goes-- you are probably safer there than you are now. :) There are guards every where and these ladies are really sweet. It is a minimum security prison.
Email me if you have any questions. Feel free to spread the word and/or ask other girl friends to come with you. I just need all the names, Driver's License Numbers by tomorrow.
Also, if you can't go but would love to go another time, check out C.H.A.R.M Prison Ministries.
