Hi "Freedom" in Jefferson City, MO

Do you know if there are many in your area that are dealing with incarceration issues in the family? We are getting ready to start looking around for a location to come set up one of our Helps Center Outreaches for the Women and Children who have been left behind by a husband that has been sent to prison. Trying to gather as much information as we can as we want to setup in the areas that have the most need.

Thank You,

That is a tough one. How much longer does Reginald have before he can come home? What would the family be saying if he was already out? Sometimes we cannot let others run our life for us.

Kimmy, we will be keeping you in prayer. This can be a difficult time until you husband gets back, but it can also be time to get even closer to God. If you stay in His word, seek His Kingdom first, He will be there for you. We have an awesome story from someone we know that went through the same thing. She had not worked in 14yrs when her husband unexpectedly got wrongfully sentenced. They were strong Christian people but it turned out to be a blessing for them both as they got to experience God in their life on a daily basis. God on the inside of the prison and God on the outside with her. She got a job in housekeeping but what she made was at least $800 per month short on paying their basic expenses every month after getting rid of everything the could. But God showed up every single time she called on His name. There were time she would open the door and a $20 would be blowing by in the wind. Some people may thing $20 is nothing but to her at that time it was like 20 million. She did nothing but read the Bible, only watched ministry programs on TV (and I mean Only). She was seeking His Kingdom first and He was providing. Never was one utility bill late. Not even one day. She always had the bills paid and always had food and school clothes for her daughter. Sometime it came down to the last day or even last minuet, but He always came through.
Look to Him, He is your "only" strength and your "only" source during this time.

My husband has received his orders to report to Butner, NC Nov 1st. I am still overwhelmed because the last year and a half in court has been a nightmare. We are both strong Christians with a good, supportive church. There was no crime, just what the prosecution deemed "intent". There were no damages, no harm and no restitution but he and 2 other workers in an office received 10 years. All are Christians, all have been married for over 30 years, all have supportive families and churches. We continue to stand on the Word God gave us and pray that this will strengthen, not destroy our family.

I was wondering if there was a place in Albuquerque, nm set up for women/men with spouses in prison. My husband is actually in jail right now, and although it is hard for us we have grown to love eachother more and could not be closer to God. I am working through a degree in christian counceling for married couples and would really like to help families in my area. I do not have a lot of experience but I was hoping by sharing my story I can help other familys get through such a painful expereince. Any recomendations?

Lora in Albuquerque;

We don't have a Helps Center in the Albuquerque area at this time. However, if you would like to send in your story we can share it with other left behind women in the groups we do have and post it on one of our websites and broadcast on our Internet Radio Stations that are focused to provide Hope and Encouragement to those passing through some difficult storms in their life. Keep God first (Seek His Kingdom first) and He will help you through this time of trial you are passing through with your husband. You guys will have an amazing marriage when he gets back home if you both will keep in #1 in your life.

Be Blessed,

Dear Hurting, I am so sorry to hear your struggle. I too am struggling. I know that many say they are innocent when they are not and then- there are those who truly are innocent, as your husband--as my husband. We too live in a small town but we did have a good lawyer. We were all pretty confident, but the jury was very odd--spookie almost. It took only 18 minutes to change our lives. There were many errors made during the trial. But I have found that the law isn't always fair as I was brought up to believe. The term "innocent until proven guilty" is not the reality of the law. The reality is the law determines whether you are guilty or not before trial. They can put stipulations on your bonding out. To such an extent that you pay for probation $45.00 a month, when you have not even gone to trial. You pay for a monitor $300.00 a month and you haven't even gone to trail. Plus you pay for your Bnd. You have no previous record...not considered. The phone cost while in jail is $4.00 for 3 minutes. It is a business. BUT, I must tell you it is a faith building experience. If you are a Christian keep in mind who you are and who He is. You and your husband work as a team- let this build your relationship. Get involved in a good local church that has a prison ministry, not all do. I hope I have helped you if just a little. Just remember, you are not alone..Christ knows all about it and about you. Believe it or not, He cares.

Is it Jackson County TX?? Same thing for me.. my man did not do the crime either, and here I sit paying the price with him, emotionally, financiall, and so is his young son. Many people just ASSUME that if you get convicted that you must be a bad guy and guilty. My man had never been in trouble a day in his life, NEVER arrested previously, he was a pawn in someone elses scheme and took the fall. I am so understanding of how it feels. It's bad enough to be with someone who's doing time, but to do it knowing that they are innocent, and an innocent kid is suffering. There are many people in jail that are there because the cops, the DA's and society want someone to put away so that they have chalk up another "win". I personally think that EVERY cop, EVERY Lawyer should be REQUIRED to spend 30 days in prison to see the gravity of what they are doing to people, make them think about it before failing to do the proper investigations. There are counties that are VERY corrupt, and the way that they STAY in power is to prove how good they are at convicting people, which means convicting innocent people. When you KNOW that they did not do the crime, because you were with them and know they didn't, it's very hard to watch them get sent in. In TX, the distances to the prisons can be insane because it's a huge state.. my drive to visit is over 12 hours.. for a 2 hour visit behind glass. My heart is broken too, I understand.

Hi Sherwoodforest;

It is sad but our justice system is not even close to being perfect. We are hoping we can help and make a difference. Our main focus is on the left behind women and children who we consider part of the Innocent victims. We do have programs planned for the incarcerated once they are released and back at home. We want to be there to help them with their Fresh Start as well. We have plans of opening our Helps Center Outreach Centers all across the United States in areas that has a large left behind incarcerated population. We need help doing this so prayerfully local businesses and individuals will get behind us and help so we can provide the support needed and then work towards bring awareness to how corrupt our justice system actually is.

Be Blessed,

My husband is innocent, indigent, sold out by lawyer who took all the money we could beg and borrow but did nothing, sentenced to 10 years - longer than his life expectancy, sent 3 states away. I'm left with all the debt. Both of us have serious health problems, I'm killing myself trying to keep things together, hold him up, try to see him, and find a way to help him. But there is no help. Too much to do, taking care of everybody and everything. Terrible demanding job where they won't pay me fairly because they know I'm trapped. I cry all the time, can't sleep or eat, can't afford to turn on the heat. He's been gone 3 months, I've had $4 to spend on food during that time. I still have life insurance for a few more months. If I died, there would be money for a lawyer, but they are all corrupt, just wanting money. I keep praying and telling the kids God is faithful, that He loves justice, and that God has promised and Daddy will be delivered, but He hasn't and I'm dying. Where is HE?

My husband went in on a trumped up charge and now our boys (4 and 5 yrs old) are going crazy! They miss him and don't understand why this has happened. On top of it I am going to college and juggling all this on my own. I need scholarships and help with my rent and bills. If anyone has any resource advice please let me know.

My husband and i are in the same boat. He is in shock we both are. As Christians who have been serving God and doing the right thing suddenley these false accusations about his buisness came up and he was arrested and no one will help. No one cares. I'm now 30 weeks pregnant alone with a business to run and no help. I'm working 14 hours a day. His lawyer wont talk to me and they put him in a jail 2 hours away. They say the FTC Goverment is sueing him for they way he worded his advertising so it will be considered fraud and he will be sent away for 25 years. He had a great product and always gave returns so we are lost. He had a A with better buisiness beuro and sold grant books as a way to help people afford college. His heart was in the right place. The FTC took all of his stuff his car, money, everything. Now they are locking him away, for what? I guess advertising? I'm alone with no lawyer that will go agianst the goverment.
