A great message from Trent Garrett, leader of Team 56, which begins team formation tomorrow at First United Methodist Church.
Good afternoon everyone,
On Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 9:00 am in a nondescript room at First United Methodist Church in Baton Rouge, LA, many of us will begin preparation for a Weekend Event designed to allow the Participants from Main Prison at Angola to witness Christ’s love through the servitude of Christian volunteers, Team #56.
During this event, Participants are given the opportunity to experience a religious awakening or renewal, to accept God’s call to a life of Christian witness, and for service to one another during their stay in the institution and beyond. After the Weekend, the Participants are encouraged to establish strong Christian communities within their institution.
I look forward with eager anticipation to the journey to fulfill “The Purpose of Kairos Inside”.
If any of you are willing and able, please bring an item of nourishment with you for our scheduled team meeting. We have many things to discuss. I understand that there are some changes that have been implemented on the national level that we are being asked to adhere to. Please come with an open mind and a willing spirit.
Keep in mind that this ministry is not mine or yours, it’s the Lord’s!
