It’s official! The Prison Ministry Fund has joined together with the Drug Rehab Fund to create the Prison Ministry & Rehab Fund.

By combining these two funds we can reduce administrative costs and maximize the effectiveness of your contributions. Our contacts, who have been ministering directly on our behalf with disbursements from these two funds, have very similar goals and challenges. And many drug addicts end up in prison, while many inmates are in prison because of drug-related crimes.

When I heard that awful detail, I couldn't help but notice the scar under his left eye. Lalo confessed that was one more night when he contemplated suicide.
