What Is Syndeo Ministries Up To?
We are so excited about all that is happening at Syndeo Ministries. Lots of progress is being made on the bunkhouse that will house 25 women transitioning out of prison, who will become a part of Syndeo Discipleship School. Skilled laborers from different churches are coming to Syndeo Ranch, and are helping us to build as funds are donated. The building is dried in, and the siding is going up. We are currently putting in the air conditioning system. Next phases are spray foam insulation and plumbing. If you are interested in helping with construction or funding, please let us know. We can definitely use your help.
Groups Working with Syndeo
College groups, women's groups, and youth groups come to Syndeo too. We always have stuff to do. The ministry is growing by leaps and bounds, so if your church is looking for a stateside missions outreach, feel free to contact us.
Summer Outreach Opportunity
It's summer, and that means it is time once again for our Summer Refresh Outreach. This year, plans are being made to distribute water bottles and cooling towels to 8000 women. Whew! That's right...8000. There is no air conditioning in the metal prison units, which makes the Texas heat unbearable, and causes many health issues. Along with lots of volunteers, we will be going into 13 different units in Texas, delivering these items to make life a bit more bearable. Churches all over the nation are helping us to raise funds for this project. Would you like to help? If you would like to be a volunteer, a three hour training by Texas Department of Criminal Justice is needed. Write to us and we will connect you with a volunteer team member. If your church can partner with us in fundraising, we would so love your help. Individuals are welcome to donate too. Click here to donate online.
Speaking Engagements and Conferences
What an honor it has been to be a guest speaker at a number of conferences. The "Innocence Network Conference" in Atlanta where hundreds of exonerees gather for encouragement, and the "Surrender to His Grace" woman's conference in El Paso, were just a few of the gatherings we had the pleasure of participating in. Anyone interested in having Hannah and Larry speak can just email us, and we would be happy to schedule an event with you.
Quarterly Bible Studies to Women in Prison
Did you know we provide Bible Studies to ladies in prison? Hannah started a Bible Study with two ladies and now there are over 750 women who are involved. The studies go out to every woman who requests them about three to four times a year. Each woman who participates also receives a handwritten holiday card with Scripture and encouraging words for 5 holidays during the year. Since this has grown so quickly, churches have signed up for particular holidays, and do the holiday card writing. It's a really neat opportunity!
Pen Pal Program
Speaking of opportunity, how would you like to be a Pen Pal and help us disciple these ladies through Syndeo Ministries' Pen Pal program. We need a lot of help here! If you are a woman over 18 years of age, you can sign up on our quick sign up page. Once you do, you will receive the guidelines in an email. After you return the email and agree to the guidelines, you will be connected to your Pen Pal. We would also love for you to do the Bible Study your Pen Pal is doing. It's a great way to disciple, plus it gives you ideas of what to talk about.

1. bound in chains; to a prisoner, as a prisoner
2. bound, connected in heart, as all believers should be
