Heather Allred is one of our facilitators who volunteers her time behind the walls serving the women. She shares with us a glimpse of not only what God is doing through her to touch the lives of the women but also what He is doing in her. She is about the Fathers business and we can be sure that when we are serving others that we will be blessed beyond what we can think or imagine.
"We were BLESSED to have a new music machine provided by Northstar Church! The ladies REALLY enjoy the worship music during the service. They all made small thank you cards to send to Northstar to show their appreciation. We take for granted that we have access to music of our choice anytime we want, but their options are very limited and the music they hear on Tuesday nights is healing balm to their weary hearts. After service, some of the ladies talk with me and a couple of them showed me during the last few weeks that THEY HAVE KEPT EVERY WORSHIP LYRIC SHEET WITH SERMON NOTES ON THE BACK FOR OVER A YEAR. It was encouraging that perhaps they are keeping the precious treasures of Gods' Word inside their hearts as well. I sure do love these ladies. I would still come to the prison even if they didn't appreciate what we do, but what a blessing to serve women who are so grateful and sweet. I was born to love and serve these women. They are my people."
