Dixon “Report” from Gary Reynolds

I am very fortunate to have volunteer ministry partners who often visit prisons with me.  Earlier this week, a team of guys went with me to Dixon Correctional, in Dixon, IL.  Gary Reynolds is one of regular in-prison participants, and here’s his reaction to our time being with our inmate neighbors.

Personal Cards for Inmate Neighbors

From time to time, we have a “card writing” party at RTO. Tonight, we’ll have cards on the tables so everyone can write a personal note of love and encouragement to our inmate neighbors.
