Kairos’ on-going, prison-ministries commitment throughout the US: CaJaKenn@Yahoo.com Work with the men & women in white. “The team I was on consisted of two groups: the outside team & the inside team. The outside team was about 22 men & women. We each paid $125 to participate & that included our motel room for 4 nights & our meals. Most of the women were wives of the inside team members. Some of the men in our group were former offenders who want to help but are not allowed in the prison. I worked alongside a murderer & a heroin dealer, both who had served many years before being released. … Our jobs were to prep & cook the meals, then assemble the food … for transporting to the prison … [we] read all the letters that were sent from former Kairos participants who are still incarcerated … write 42 letters of encouragement; make runs to the store … We got up at 4:15 each morning & left the work place (the Methodist Church at Gatesville) about 8:30 – 9:00 each night. … The inside team — about 34– were all men … completely selfless … 7 of them were clergy, & the others were all walks of life: retired folks, business people, small town folk & city folk… I probably will go again next year. The experience was hard, both physically & emotionally, but it was worth it to see the changed lives ….”
