PRISON FELLOWSHIP LETTER WRITING TRAINING GUIDE From: TREFLYN JONES 17 Feb 2012 (18:32)
I attended the PRISON FELLOWSHIP MINISTREIS LETTER WRITING GUIDE held at UCB headquarters in Stoke on Trent. I had no idea as to how the meeting would be run or how the content would be delivered.

The meeting started with a video presentation based upon the true story of two offenders who were imprisoned in different prisons for a crime they had commited together. Very powerful.

The AGENDA:-

The Importance of Letter Writing
What we expect from you and what you can expect from us
The letter writing process
Security Issues
Letter writing tips
Ending contact with a prisoner
letter writing agreements

The course was extremely well structured and presented and all delegates were provided with every opportunity to participate in brainstorming sessions.

There were delegate packs which contained information on all aspects of writing to prisoners.

I would thoroughly recommend that anyone who has an intention or a calling to become a letter writer to those in prison to attend this course.

One of the delegates was an ex-offender, now a reformed character, a born again Christian. He described how it felt as a prisoner to receive a letter. When you are in prison and you feel that the entire world hates you, despises you, makes you feel you are worthless. A kind worded letter brings them new hope, true honest communication from a person who doesn\'t judge them. We all need that kind of encouragement.

Writing letters to prisoners also provides awonderful opportunity to evangelise and to show love and compassion towards another person who has broken the law and been imprisoned. Not an opportunity to write them a sermon! - an opportunity to extend them the love that Jesus extendxed to us when he went to the cross and died for all of our sins.

If you feel that you would like more information about the next course, get in touch with PRISON FELLOWSHIP MINISTRIES or contact STEPHEN HAWKINS who is a memebr of TaskJesus. Look him up in the members area.

If you want to get involved in Prison Ministry, we would recommend that you get in touch with Stephen Hawkins, he can tell you more about the many many opportunities that PRISON FELLOWSHIP MINISTRIES offers.

Thank you for a great meeting Stephen.
