Come Go With Us- Be a “VOICE”
EMERGE Life Events
Prior to Covid-19, inmates suffered a great deal from isolation. During Covid-19 the loneliness of isolation increased tremendously, causing a greater need for restoration and healing.
In July of 2020, Emerge, was granted permission to send evangelists to minister to inmates, staff, and families, through onsite prayer at different correction facilities in South Carolina. August 21 thru August 23, in a coordinated effort, 15 “Voices” with Emerge traveled to Columbia SC. During this time, they participated in intentional and focused prayer for the inmates.
We provided composition books, notebook paper, stamps, deodorant, snacks and sodas for 250 juveniles. Not only did we provide for August, everything was doubled, and we provided that which would have been given in June. We saw a mighty move on God.
Four (4) juveniles received Christ. A female adult facility came off lock down as we prayed on Saturday. Also, on September 1 all chaplains, teachers and life coaches returned to work!
Regardless of the method of ministry, our “Voices” will return for our quarterly Emerge Life Event, March 5-7, 2021.
ADDICTIONS & JAIL MINISTRY
In 2020, our Emerge Skills4Life seven (7) week Christ centered addiction program and Community Assessment & Re-entry Empowerment (C.A.R.E.) programs were scheduled to begin in North Carolina and Lousiana Detention Centers located in many different counties and Parishes. Meetings to resume progress on these programs post Covid-19 restrictions, will begin in June 2020. Please continue to pray for those who suffer from addiction, isolation, and separation from support groups. Overdose and suicidal deaths have increased during this pandemic; please pray for all family members and loved ones affected.
