St. Paul writes that our Savior wants all men to be saved and know the truth. St. Matthew writes that when we minister to those who are thirsty, hungry, naked, in need shelter, or sick or in prison we minister to Jesus Himself.
A group of men and women from our Genesee County Orthodox Parishes write to inmates in prison and it can change a life - ours and theirs! We are corresponding with about 15 inmates (most of them here in Michigan). We are also visting a few where possible.
One inmate responds: "... the church my family were members of for four generations ... severed ties with me as they have no prison ministry ... OCPM showed me a faith I could cling onto before I let it slip away. My eyes teared up upon receiving your letter ... I will require much prayer and counsel ... I have become callous in shame and non self forgiveness ...".
Several others have been paroled and are being assisted on the road to Christ by the sacrificial acts of loving family members and Orthodox Christians in our own community!
