SPOTLIGHT VOLUNTEER

Joy Lindsey

Joy Lindsey has been part of the FFM team for almost a year now.  She began her volunteer work with the McCracken County Regional Jail Team and in in recent months began working with the West Kentucky Correctional Complex Team. 

For decades, Joy felt led to volunteer with the prison ministry.  However, the right opportunity did not present itself until hearing Lee Rust speak about FFM.

Joy loves working with the inmates and seeing how God is working in their hearts and lives.  “I realize that God is giving me an opportunity to be useful.  He is using me to make a difference in the lives of some of the inmates.”

In addition to Joy’s volunteer work with FFM, she is a part-time secretary of West End Baptist Church and is a member of First Baptist Church of LaCenter in Kentucky.

BLESSING TO THE MINISTRY

Do you remember those guest performers Captain Kangaroo and Ed Sullivan used to have on? You know, the ones who would spin plates on top of lots of sticks…That’s what Lisa Crossett reminds me of.

Lisa is the indispensable officer who works in the Control Center at WKCC and is responsible for signing in volunteers as we enter the facility at Fredonia. When the group arrives there are often three more things going on, all in a small space. The snack guy is there, checking in; inmates are checking out to go to a medical facility and others are coming on to the compound from the minimum security section for some reason; other officers need a special key for something: it’s a circus. Then, eight or nine volunteers from Freedom Forever arrive to sign in...


LIFE VERSE

The spirit of the Soverign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor.
