Separation in my mind means a dividing of, a parting of ways. The Forsyth Jail and Prison Ministry closes that gap and allows me to fellowship with God, and have a relationship with my Creator. If this ministry wasn’t in place, I would be in a dark, dark place. My spiritual man would die of starvation. But praise be to God that the ministry allows me to have a relationship with God. The ministry frees the soul and fills up the spiritual needs of individuals.
The chaplains offer a variety services for the men and women in the jail and prison. Last month my 90-year-old mother fell and broke her hip. I was allowed to call the hospital through the chaplain’s offices. If there is a death of a family member, they offer solace to the inmate. This past Christmas I saw 100 kids enjoy Christmas with their dads and receive toys because of the ministry.
Therefore, this is God’s ministry to the community and residents of Forsyth County. Without it, many would suffer. God bless this ministry and all who are a part of it. “Jimmy” – a Forsyth Prison inmate.
