Testimony from an inmate:
"I thought all Christians were hypocrites and just want to force religion on us. But God began to soften my heart when I realized they wanted to share the Love of Christ and Christmas with my kids. As a mom, this showed me the real caring love of Christ . The thought that they would be willing to provide for my kids when I could not humbled me. I opened my heart to God and accepted Jesus as my savior. Seeing faith lived out and shared through love made a difference."
