CORONA VIRUS IN PRISON
Over the past several months I have watched the news and talked to friends and family as the "new" virus swept through our country. The stay-at-home orders were given, and besides limiting movement and canceling all classes and chapel services I wasn't really affected.
The beginning of June all inmates and staff were tested for COVID-19, and the results came back negative.Visiting started back up, movements increased, and things were starting to feel more "normal" when a staff member tested positive.
While writing this there are thirty-eight cases: six staff members and thirty-two inmates. This can be a scary time. Tempers are short and people are irritable. Satan wants me to be fearful and focus on "what-ifs," but I'm just going to take one day at a time and trust the Lord.
"Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name."
