Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I hope and pray you had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed the blessings of family & loved ones as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. 2016 is right around the corner and with that, Kairos Neal Walk #35 will be held on April 14-17th . Our first team meeting will be next Saturday on January 9th @ Hillside Christian Church South Campus

6901 Bell Street (the same location as Casey Cameron’s team meetings)

The team meeting will start @ 8:30 am and be over by 1:30 pm. We will have a lunch break around 12:00/12:30pm. Here are some things you can do in preparation for the Kairos weekend and first team meeting

• Invite prospective new team members to enjoy the blessing of serving on a Kairos team, family members, small group members, co-workers. Pray for God to give you wisdom on who to invite, we all should have at least one person(s) in mind to invite. Sometimes we assume we will have a big team at the Neal Unit but this is not always the case & we need new & former team members to serve including YOU!

• Pray for the team, team leadership, the brothers in white that will be on weekend and the brothers in white at the Neal unit in and out of Kairos. As many of us know this has been a season of change as this will be the first Kairos since Chap & Warden Bakers retirement.

• Please make every effort to make the first team meeting and as many team meetings as possible as we unite together with the common goal of sharing the love and forgiveness of Christ Jesus with those affected by incarceration.

Contact me for the team application you can complete prior to the team meeting. If you are a new team member and not an approved TDCJ volunteer you will need to compete the attached TDCJ volunteer application. We will have both of these forms at the meeting as well. We will have pizza and salad for lunch and some breakfast items as well as coffee and other drinks. Please bring a small donation to help cover the cost of lunch.

I look forward to serving with each one of you- If you have any questions at all please contact me directly
