Christmas Eve at Mat-Su Pretrial

On Christmas Eve, Chaplain Steve Alexander and his three sons Josiah, Seth and Levi stopped by MSPT to spread some Christmas cheer to our prisoner population. We went to each mod and sang Christmas Carols, read the Christmas story, prayed with the prisoners and gave out Christmas goodie bags. The prisoners received a Christmas bag filled with candy, a Christian track and a handwritten Christmas note from Mrs. Helen Riley.  They also received a bag of specially made Christmas cookies provided by the MSPT Kitchen staff.  A great time was had by all and it truly lifted the spirits of the prisoner population!
