I visited the prison in Bowling Green, Missouri, tonight and wanted to share this story. Rick, a member of our group, said he received some money from a friend recently who deposited it in his prison account. So he bought up bunches of candy and held on to it. Then on Christmas Day he went into the yard and handed the candy out to strangers.
Yesterday one of the strangers came up to him and said, “You know, that was the only Christmas gift I received this year—thank you!”
Rick sets an example for me. He’s one of the poorer guys in prison and yet, in addition to his great smile and deep insights, he found something else to give.
