Michelle had been affected by TDCJ since 1993 andfor almost 20 years, rarely did she ever speak of her loved one who wasincarcerated. For many of those years, the isolation was deafening and caused herto do anything and everything to avoid being noticed. In 2013, Michelle wasinvited to attend a Kairos weekend and the flood gates opened. She hasbeen involved with the ministry since then.
If you know of someone else in Paris andsurrounding counties, that have loved ones in one of the TCDJ Prisons, pleaseinvite them to attend our meeting. Our meeting is free. You are NOT alone, we are here for you.
