Michigan at the Earnest C. Brooks Correctional
Facility sharing quilts with kids who have a dad
in prison. For the 3rd time this year we joined
Forgiven Ministries and Prison Fellowship of
Michigan to bring HOPE and healing to families
affected by crime. I entered the prison on Friday
morning with 56 quilts collected from our
volunteers and 61 quilts collected from a church
group from the Detroit area. The 23 dads had
an amazing selection of quilts to choose from.
First, I was able to share my testimony with the dads--I shared with them about forgiveness, HOPE and God's plan of restoration in my life and in theirs. I am not exactly sure what I said but I do know that the Holy Spirit spoke through me and touched several of the dads--especially a few that are in prison for murder.

|He picked the Lions quilt--too bad they can't win a game :)|
|This dad had two preteen girls who loved bright colors--he made two excellent choices!|
|We prayed over the quilts before they packed them away for the next day.|
Once again, a HUGE thank you to those of you who sent a quilt to us over the past few months for this program. God is using these quilts for his purpose and it is more beautiful than anything I could have ever imagined!!!
