Who doesn’t love cookies? Cookies have been an integral part of the Kairos of San Diego prison ministry since the first weekend held decades ago at the R. J. Donovan Correctional Facility. Over the years, administrative policies have changed and last year was no exception, however by the Grace of God the policy to allow homemade cookies into the facility appears have been granted once more. There simply is no substitute for homemade cookies!
In the past, the response to our appeal for cookies has been incredible! Generous donations of cookies came in by the tens of thousands. The candidates were blessed by this overwhelming show of love and it helped open the men up to receive the Gospel of Jesus Christ. These men who have very little in this world, who have been cast aside by society and in many cases alienated by friends and family, experience the agape love of Jesus. So much of this experience is because strangers care enough about them to offer of themselves and bake them cookies.
We are asking for your prayerful support once more. The upcoming Kairos Inside weekend will be held March 27th through the 30th. Please consider this an open invitation to you, your family, and your church community to bake dozens of cookies for the Kairos weekend. Our goal is 3,500 dozen cookies to be shared between the two prison yards where we will be ministering.
Please package the cookies in clear, zip-lock freezer bags. Please place no more than two dozen cookies in each bag (if using one gallon freezer bags). Please DO NOT use tinfoil or wire twist ties (the cookies will be thoroughly inspected by the prison staff and this could delay or prevent entry).
WE WILL BE COLLECTING COOKIES ALL DAY IN THE LOBBY OF THE ROCK CHURCH POINT LOMA ALL DAY MARCH 23RD. THIS WILL BE THE ONLY DAY/TIME WE ARE COLLECTING THE COOKIES.
Every participant in this ‘cookie ministry’ will be blessed for the King will answer, “Truly I say to you: whenever you did this to these little ones who are my brothers and sisters, you did it to me.” Matt. 25:40
