One of our Tri-Cities Women's Jail Outreach students said this about Christie* who has been locked up with her the past month:

"You know, Christie has really changed from the person I knew. She's calmer and gets along better than before. When we get all worried, she just tells us which verses from the Bible will help. She is confident now, and I know that when she leaves for prison soon, she will be ok."

We will follow Christie as she makes her transition to prison life—encouraging her with discipleship newsletters that include a personal note on each one. She can continue her correspondence courses and call us collect occasionally. It is a pleasure helping her grow strong in her new life.

*Regulations require us not to use our student's real name... but we are free to tell her story. Be watching for more true stories from behind the jail and prison walls.
