I stand with Adopt an Inmate as an adoptee, meaning a letter-writer. Here’s why:
I set out to write women who are incarcerated because I wanted them to know that they are not alone. I wanted them to know that they are loved and supported and that their stories and lives matter because, the truth is, we heal with love, not isolation. But what I’ve gotten in return is a gift far greater and far more precious than any I can offer.
The letters these women, these now friends, send me are lessons in life. I am moved by the strength they hold, the endurance they convey, the powerful rumblings of faith that seem to lift themselves up off the page. These women are my sisters in spirit, guiding me.
Adopt an Inmate partners with Watermark to match up local volunteers with inmates in Texas on our waiting list.
Through the Noteworthy ministry at Watermark Community Church in Dallas, Texas, volunteer pen pals encourage incarcerated men and women through letters and cards throughout the year. Noteworthy pen pals have the unique privilege and opportunity to contribute to the discipleship of inmates, helping them understand what it means to follow Jesus, both on the inside and when they begin a new life on the outside. They have the simple but powerful opportunity to love and encourage them with the truth of God’s Word.
