This was a great day for her because she had not seen him for almost 5 years. She said she had to stop going because she could not stop crying after she visited him. Fred had no idea that we were bringing her to see him. Normally inmates get a few minutes to see family through a screen and are forced to yell at each other because of all the noise from the background.
However, Wells of Hope has such a professional relationship with the prison staff that Laura and her son got to sit in an office, face to face for two hours. It was pretty awesome!
During each grandmother visit, Steve and Gina go to the prison hospital to talked and prayed for patients who are sick and depressed. During the prayer time, Gina was able to lead two men to the Lord and pray with them. Please continue to pray for these men, their children and families left behind.
We are so amazed at how God works through us,after the visit the inmate was transferred to a very far off prison where it is difficult for the grandmother to reach. Hadn’t she visited her son then, it could have been very difficult for her to visit him in the future.
