This day was very emotional for a variety of reasons; One, because it was the last day and two, because there were about 100 people from the outside yelling, cheering, clapping and showing authentic Agape love for all of us. If that doesn’t make you cry, I don’t know what will. I don’t think that one inmate didn’t cry. It is amazing how much Agape love helps a person; helps them to have hope again. Helps them to see that even though they are broken, have sinned, have fallen, that people still care and love them. It was amazing!
It was sad, because we didn’t even really get to say goodbye to all our Kairos mentors. That stank really bad. They are coming back on May 14th, but over the weekend we had grown very close to them. I have seen some genuine changes in inmates on the block. It is amazing. I hope that we don’t get discouraged and keep supporting and encouraging each other.
So the conclusion of the weekend was: Accept God’s grace, love and forgiveness and spread his love to others. “Christ is counting on you!”
