    Thank you Hope for sending this. As a church secretary in years past I was amazed when a request for help from a convict was just not answered. Too many regulations, too much time required. It felt hopeless. Since then God has given me examples of his loving care to them. Thank you, God, for your helpful message.

    I would like to take part in training and work with prison ministery. I live in Parker, CO and have several correctional institutes near me. My church is Trinity Lutheran Church in Franktown, CO. I have been a MS Lutheran all my life. Dyed in the wool! My mother was a German war bride and came to the United States a good Lutheran. I am a retired United Flight attendant. I work part time but want to serve the Lord in this capacity. Please contact me. Thank you, Ginnie Ellis
