As prison ministers with Love and Compassion Ministries, we visit teens at a juvenile correctional facility called Crossroads several times each month. Sometimes we think we become more blessed than the kids. This past Christmas we were all blessed beyond measure!

Christmas at Crossroads 2010

Crossroads Correctional is a Juvenile Camp for teens.

When you first see them, some look tough, some act mean.

But most of these kids were mislead right from the start.

Once you get to know them, you’ll see warm fragile hearts.

When we visit the youth we stay for two hours or three.

But our Christian spirits may be all the Jesus they see.

This year Christmas Day was scheduled as God’s Special time.

As Christians we had to see them, despite their past crimes.

It was a blessing that day, because all came to God’s throne.

No one was left behind; no one was left alone.

The smiles and the joy were present all over the place,

as we all sang and prayed to experience God’s Grace.

The staff that was there seen many miracles multiply.

The Spirit was so powerful it gave the devil a black eye.

It was the best Christmas for everyone, especially the boys.

For this was a Christ-filled Celebration without any toys!


Reference: Ezekiel 11:19-20 Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in My statutes and keep My judgments and do them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God.

John Michael,

A wonderful, uplifting write. God Bless You for the good you do in Prison Miinistries. I know of a young man in jail that was completely turned around by a preacher from PM.
Peace and love to you.

These kids don't need anyone to give up on them. Glad you visited them and ministered to them at this time of year.
