YOUR CRY HAS BEEN HEARD
YOUR CRY HAS BEEN HEARD is a wonderful collection of letters, and poems. A must read for those serving in the prison and jail ministry, as well as those incarcerated, or have a loved one that is. The stories will bring tears of sadness as well as tears of joy to your eyes. What some of these men and woman have gone through, and how God captured their hearts and transformed their lives, is nothing short of a miracle.
For those of you that serve in the pen pal ministry, you’ll find God’s reassuring words that your work is not in vain. Many of the stories tugged at my heart in a way I was lead to write some of the “authors” to let them know how much their words inspired me. And oh how profound many were.
I’ve enjoyed reading YOUR CRY HAS BEEN HEARD so much I’ve purchased several copies as gifts to those I write to in prison, as well as leaders in the prison and jail ministry. One woman has already used one of the stories as a teaching lesson at one of the jails she volunteers at. I’ve copied a story or two to send to someone I knew would be touched by the insightful words.
Within the pages of YOUR CRY HAS BEEN HEARD, there’s a little something for everyone. Thanks Ms. Michael for putting this wonderful book, together.
