I consider myself and other Christian deputies’ as partners with the chaplains and churches that frequent our jails. We are all seeking to fulfill our purposes in Christ by being salt and light in the darkest of places. Ministering behind the jail walls has been inexplicably rewarding. Though I have been cursed at and spat on, frustrated and angered, and my patience has been tried on many days, it was through those fiery trials that I have learned to love some pretty unlovable people. I have seen the young and old come through the prison system, some men, some women; many drugged and drunken, suicidal and homicidal; depressed and hopeless . . . many lost.
