Seeing someone in prison can be disheartening for anyone especially if it hits close to home. Generally, prisoners are only given a limited amount of time to receive visitors. This can be critical to an individual’s need for human contact, which can consequently increase the risk of depression. During these times, it is important to show inmates how much we care and encourage them to lead a path of redemption. It’s been scientifically proven that the more compassion, attention and love an inmate receive, the higher chances they have of being reintegrated into society as new individuals. They completely emancipate themselves from their former decisions and actions in life. “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.“ Acts 3:19
What to talk about when visiting someone in jail?
While visiting an inmate for the first time can be intimidating, the bible says that we shall love thy enemy therefore we must reserve judgement. It also states that in order to be forgiven of our sin, we have to forgive those who sinned against us. We must let inmates know that second chances exist as long as they repent and humble themselves. Rely on our highly spirited team to provide assistance and information on visiting an inmate.

Interpersonal connections are needed in order to build self-awareness and have a sense of belonging in society. It is important for us as human beings to display our compassion even to those who are estranged from us in order to give inmates a sense of hope. Always believe in the word of God for he has not abandoned us and will forgive those who have asked for forgiveness.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9 Everyone who has done wrong in the past has a chance of redeeming themselves and deserves support.
