Death Row Ministry in NC, TX, FL and TN

On the 6th of March, 2015 I traveled up to Virginia's death row to minister to two of the men there in the ice and snow!  I am happy to say because of all of this faithful "showing up" I added two more of the guys when I used to go on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month. Sadly one of my beloved friends was executed. But I thank God that Virginia ABOLISHED the death penalty! I will still visit my friends in Virginia even if they are now in two different prisons!
Since November 2016, I have been seeing two of the guys on NCs death row as well almost every Friday of the month. I now have many friends in NC! I typed every word of Paul Brown's book, "I Woke Up Before I Died." I am typing up another manuscript for another book one of my friends is writing. I am hoping to visit one of my friends on TNs row in Nashville, TN. He has not had a visit in over a decade.
I also write to men on death row in NC, TN, PA,FL and TX.

Your continued financial support is needed in order to keep this ministry going. I also need your prayers as I go as I want Christ to go before me, behind me, and all around me. I always go with prayers for the families of the victims in my heart, But I also go with the unconditional love of Christ knowing that a single act does not define any of us. I have been transformed by listening to their stories and spending time with my friends.

The nuts and bolts of it:
All the money I receive goes for travel expenses to and from the prisons I visit. It also pays for stamps for ALL the letters I write. And finally, video visits are now all the rage, but they are a costly item - but, it lets me see my friends without having to travel. I never take money for my time even though I am unemployed. I really appreciate every dollar! SO THANK YOU!!! My friends thank you too!
