Annie is the first prisoner I ever met face to face 2 years ago.  She made me feel so welcome in prison.  She is a beautiful person inside and out. 

My heart was saddened this year when I learned of my friend, Annie, being in the infirmary. Annie knows the Lord and loves Him dearly.  She will be seeing him face to face very soon and experiencing true freedom for the first time in a LONG time.  When I looked into her eyes I saw the look of death...but she is ready to meet her Maker.  She has had both kidney's removed and when I asked the Asst. Warden how you live without kidney's , she answered, "You don't."  The Great Physician will bring ultimate healing to Annie's body one day very soon and I pray that she goes in Peace.  I thank God for allowing me to look into her eyes and put my arms around her for possibly the last time this side of Heaven and to whisper three little words...I love you.  Please pray for Annie......she will be breaking free very soon and running into the arms of Jesus.

There is a freedom of worship behind bars that very few people in the free world ever experience.  These ladies have lost it ALL and they have nothing else to lose so they give their ALL to Jesus.  I have to ask myself why don't I express my freedom in Christ when I worship Him...why do I act like I am bound by chains???   I want to break free and let my passion for Him be evident to those around me.  What about you...are you free in Jesus?  Have you surrendered your ALL to Him??
