What a Difference a Day Makes

I received an email from my dad and he told me about a program that he was involved with in a Louisiana prison with Awana's. It is a program where they bring the children of certain inmates in for the weekend. They have special services, crafts, games and different things for the kids and their father's. I have worked with two different organizations doing this type of thing and it is so rewarding. You become attached to the children quickly and it is so hard at the end of the day when you have to take away the child from their father they hardly ever see. My dad said that one of the inmates asked about me and remembered me because I was playing ping pong with his sons and it made an impression on him because I didn't even know his kids, and that was about three years ago. You never know how your actions can affect someone's life. One act of kindness can made a difference in the life of other's.
