Thumbs up East Louisiana Kairos Outside Testimonial

I attended a Kairos Outside Weekend Retreat as a Guest a little over four years ago. And I have been involved with the ministry ever since.

At first, I was hesitant about going because I didn't know anything about the people that would be there or what we would do...but once I got there on Friday evening, I never once regretted my decision to go!

Initially, I thought people would be asking me about my boyfriend (what prison is he in? what did he do? how long does he have?) and prison this, prison that ...but I was so wrong. There were grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, girlfriends, etc. from all different backgrounds, races, ages, shapes, and sizes. Every one of them had been hurt or had some sort of trouble in their lives but they also had a reason to be happy and they freely shared that happiness and love.

Louisiana has the highest incarceration rate in the country and yet we all feel like we're alone on this journey. Kairos Outside provides a safe place (confidential and non-judgmental) for us to share our lives with each other.

The purpose of the weekend retreat is NOT to condemn or conform you but to show you Christ's love through our support and encouragement. We want you to know that you are NOT alone

I just wanted to share this with you all, so you know that when I invite you to attend, it's not in vain. I wouldn't invite you to participate in something that I didn't wholeheartedly believe in. So please consider joining us one Weekend, you won't regret it
