Church missions committee
I was privileged to meet with our Faith Baptist Church missions committee this past Sunday night to share developments with the Prisoners for Christ missions service. I really enjoyed sharing how ministry to inmates is remarkably cross cultural as the practical worldview of this incarcerated people group is so different from what we deal with on a daily basis.
I hope to hear back from Joseph, now serving time at the state penitentiary in Walla Walla, after he was found guilty for a Alzheimer's nursing care death in Federal Way. His last letter stated the case is reopened for further investigation. I am also corresponding with Josh in Shelton, John in Monroe, and Scott and Jason and Clallam Bay.
On Wednesday nights, I join Dwight at the Regional Justice Center for a service in the D-unit. As I shared previously, the RJC has been reduced to 525 inmates as a precautionary step as the Green River valley prepares for potential flooding.
On Friday, November 20, Katharine and I will be attending a donor appreciation dessert up in Bothell. At that dessert event, "His Harmony" from our church will be recognized for 15 years of ministry with PFC.
Then, the next day, Jim Dixon and I will be headed back to Forks for an appreciation event and service at Olympic Corrections Center.
