“I’ve been doing time for 28 straight years. I watched my son grow up through visits and photos. Your program helped me send love through Prison Fellowship Angel Tree. With your help and my family’s love, it helps keep my son from following the same path I followed like my father before me. So thank you! Thank you for more than just the resources, but for your help and kindness.” –Jacob, Incarcerated in Texas. #PFAngelTree #incarceration #family

“Camp has so many benefits for developing personally, physically, emotionally, and overcoming obstacles. Sometimes Angel Tree camp pushed me to do something I was afraid to do. But I’m thankful now. It was so wonderful being pushed out of my boundaries in a safe place, with counselors and camp friends surrounding me. When you’re at camp, you have people to support you and catch you when you fall.” #AngelTree #PrisonFellowshipAngelTree #camping #kids

It was a good day, indeed.

From our Prison Fellowship Angel Tree sports camp in San Antonio today: This little boy showed up this morning crying and had to be coaxed out of his mother’s arms to go on the football field. By the end of the day, he was referring to the teenager in this picture as his best friend. The teen was part of Cornerstone Church football and volunteered his time to help on the football field.

“My grandson left a very large, mirrored door in my garage and later decided he didn't want it. I noticed a workman with a large truck in my neighborhood, and offered him $20 to remove the mirror. When I tried to pay him, the young man said no, he didn't want it. I went home and remembered the Christmas gift program you run [Angel Tree]. So I went back and told him I’d like to send the money to your program and told him what it was. Very quietly he murmured that HE had been one of those children without a parent who was in jail. He had tears in his eyes and thanked me. I didn't tell him I sent $50 instead of $20. Now we're friends!! Your blessings go far and touch many hearts—connecting strangers and healing wounds. I'll remember you next year!! God bless you all.” – Patty

General information

An estimated 1.7 million children have a mom or dad in prison. The number is huge – but so is the opportunity. Angel Tree is a ministry that reaches out to the children of inmates and their families with the love of Christ. It seeks to transform the lives of these families and to reconcile them to their Heavenly Father and each other. In Matthew 18:5 Jesus said, “Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.” There are children right in your community who are among the most at-risk children in the nation. Angel Tree provides an opportunity to connect with those families and begin ministering to them at Christmas and then continue through a variety of year-round ministry opportunities.
