The head of Kairos Prison Ministry International is hoping to come out ad visit with them and answer all their questions. help pray for a date of God's timing.
We still need a financial secretary and treasurer. Our faithful servants would like to pass on the torch :)
What would you do if your husband, father, son, daughter, mother or any loved one, through some bad choices, found themselves imprisoned. Thousands of women from around this country are dealing with this very issue right now. They are alone, scared, ridiculed by society and feel they have nowhere to turn. They are mentally, emotionally and spiritually serving time alongside their loved ones. As a result, Kairos Outside Prison Ministry was developed to meet these women’s needs.
Our next Kairos Outside Weekend is tentatively scheduled , but we are building up our team. Many hands make the work light.
Please pray for us. We are building our teams and Advisory Council. We have about 15 ladies waiting to be guests. Come join us as we share God's love. We will be training our leaders and team to prepare.
If you would like to to attend the weekend as a guest or serve , please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are thoughts to consider as you seek God’s will on how you would like to participate.
Be a Team Member. Serve the whole weekend, perhaps as a table leader, palanca (agape) coordinator, table server, kitchen helper, giving a talk, serving as spiritual advisor, serving as musician and song leader. Only women can serve in the community room, but men can serve in the kitchen and as day angel.
Be a Prayer Partner. All Kairos activities are covered with prayer. You can be a part of that prayer effort by signing up for prayer coverage.
Be a Day Angel. There are many opportunities for outside support for part of a day and not the whole weekend. You can help by driving guests to the weekend, setting up rooms, cleaning up, preparing a meal, helping child care, managing databases, emailing other friends, finding candidates/guest, picking up needed supplies.
Be a Missionary Supporter. By your financial support, you can send another team member to serve or sponsor a candidate/guest to this weekend.Another easy way is to sponsor a participant's meal. Your first name will be put on a small note to let them know that someone cared enough to sponsor a lunch or dinner. The cost is $10 and you can sponsor as many meals as you wish. Just mail the donation to our address.
Be a Word Spreader. We can come and do a talk at your church or organization and hand out literature about our ministry.
Contact us for literature to post in your church or office or organization.
