Re: “Faith of our felons

I was an inmate at McPherson for 2 years back in 2006... I also participated in the pal program and can attest to it's ever changing spiritual endeavor!! Carolyn was awsome along with the other ladies you read about in the top of this story!! Although I am not happy with my past decisions I'm happy to say I'm blessed beyond measures to have been able to spend time with these women along with chaplain Dewitt!! I am from New Mexico and how I ended up in Arkansas, to have been put in such a far away place from my family and friends was more of a blessing than a curse!! I met a few God fearing women that taught me more than I could have ever learned anywhere else in the world and I'm indebted to them for teaching me all they knew!! Sometimes I think back and wish I could drop by just to say Hi and let them kno my life has never been the same and that what they're doing in the pal program is amazing!! God has allowed even the women who will probably never be free again to live with such freedom and it shows!! I kno the program is real and that it works!! I lived it!! I let it change me and I am grateful that I can share my insight with people from New Mexico... Some look at me funny others attentively listen..
Maybe someday I can go back to Newport and fellowship and sing the all the beautiful hymns and songs of praise they were so eager to teach me with the ladies I once did almost ten years ago!! <3
God is good, and loves us all! Free bird or Caged!! :)
