NEWPORT-Members of English Creek Baptist Church recently
provided inmates at the county
jail with "indigent packages" containing a toothbrush, toothpaste,
comb, deodorant, and bar of soap, plus sweets, and even a rare treat of a
McDouble cheeseburger from McDonald's.
Church member Andy Tritt said this was the second year
English Creek Baptist Church has handed out treat bags at Christmas to every
inmate. This year, they handed out 191 treat bags.
"This is a ministry to let them know that even
though they have made bad decisions in their lives, there are still people who
love and care about them very much," stated a church press release.
