From the Mission Field
The Forgotten Man Ministries (FMM) of Livingston County were very grateful for the gifts our church congregation provided to continue their important ministry at the Livingston County Jail. Jail Chaplain Allan Reiman remarked that he needed t-shirts and socks as a part of this ministry to provide for those incarcerated individuals who part-take of the Christian services provided by FMM. In fact, last year 60 inmates made a commitment to make God present in their lives. This is so very important because unless these individuals make a change in their lives the outcome can be devasting for those they leave behind, those forgotten. Of those, 80% of children who have a parent go to jail will also see the inside of a jail in their lifetime. This parenting model has got to be transformed. And we hope to do our part in supporting that change.
The medical care for individuals incarcerated is a tremendous expenditure for our county. Consider those individuals who enter the jail with diabetic needs, asthma, high blood pressure, arthritis, heart problems, and even infectious diseases. To prevent the spread of germs within the jail, the Livingston County Jail is kept at a cool 68-degree. Therefore, providing inmates with a t-shirt layer and socks helps to provide some measure of relief to combat the cool environmental conditions.
Our mission goal in support of the FMM was to provide 100 t-shirts. We superseded this goal and not only provided t-shirts, but also a check for $132 to go toward purchasing socks.
One exciting new program recently launched by FMM was the “GRO Pod “concept, God Reforming Offenders. This 12-week program teaches biblical life principles to a voluntary group of inmates. They are housed in their own pod or housing unit. The search is currently on for a coordinator to run this specific program at the Livingston County Jail. We are happy to support this ministry as part of our church’s ongoing missions’ projects. Thank you for your generous donations on behalf of the Fowlerville First United Methodist Church.
With Many Blessings,
