Summer Refresh 2020
We had an amazing opportunity to make a difference in many lives at 15 prison units in Texas that lack proper cleaning supplies or a simple cup in order to hydrate. In the unit Hannah was in, there have been many positive cases of COVOD-19. In prison, there is no way to socially distance, or to follow basic hand washing recommendations.
Even though we are all being quarantined, and strongly encouraged to wash our hands, disinfect, and hydrate in order to stay healthy, these are measures unavailable to women in Texas prisons.
By providing soap and cups, we were able to meet a very large need in a small way and provide very pertinent items. We took five different trips and delivered these items during the month of July to 9000 ladies. And you helped us gather the soap and provide finances to purchase the soap and cups.
We have received many thank you letters stating how much of a difference this small act of kindness made in these women's lives. They are scared like many others are due to COVID. But these ladies also know they will not get the care they need if they do contract it.
Women in Texas prisons have been on lockdown for many months now, which means they have to stay in their beds. Plus, they don't get to talk much with family because visitors are not allowed and phone calls are very limited. This means that more than ever, they feel forgotten and alone. Some of you helped us by writing letters of encouragement too. These letters and the gifts, reminded these ladies that they are not forgotten. Some wrote saying the gifts and the letters stopped them from ending their lives. Really! The gifts made such a huge difference.
Many others have signed up to be a part of our Bible Study Program. So, again, this small gift made such a big difference. Thank you for helping to make this happen. We are so grateful for you.
Donations can be made directly through our website or by mail.

Thank you so much for partnering with us. We couldn’t do this ministry without you!
For every $10 donation, we will send you one of these water bottles. Please let us know how many bottles you would like, as many folks like to donate without receiving a bottle.
OUR MINISTRY IS BASED ON THIS VERSE
Remember those in prison as if you were bound with them!

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