"Book Cart Ministry" at Kane Co. Jail
The Kane County Adult Justice Center in St. Charles does not have a staff Chaplain, so 10 volunteers have teamed up to provide one-on-one Pastoral Counseling, and Christian literature to the general population. On the Book Cart are Bibles, tracts, Christian Books, Bible Study materials, and devotionals.
All the Book Cart materials are donated. Currently, we have a good number of English Bibles & books, but a GREAT NEED in this vital ministry is for Spanish Bibles and books. We have many inmates who's only language is Spanish, and many more who may have some English skills, but their "heart language" is Spanish.

Manuel - for guidance, strength & understanding that God will change me.

Ray - to return to the free world as a better Dad.
