I first attended a Wings for L.I.F.E. party when my son was incarcerated. It was so wonderful to be able to interact with my son and other inmates playing games, singing songs and acting out bible stories. We had fun, acted silly and ate pizza! Since then, I have volunteered for other parties. i'm not sure who gets more out of this - the volunteers or the inmates. It is so wonderful to see families having fun together, singing, doing crafts and SMILING and laughing. There is not much to smile about when you are incarcerated and some of these families have never been in church before. Everyone came away feeling a sense of hope and maybe not is all lost when you are incarcerated.
