Contact Killer In Prison

My Niece killed a man, so I was told. I have never had a relationship with her. Should I contact her in prison? I am afraid to do so.

My wife and I have been visiting a woman on death row here in California for seven years. It is not scary at all. This woman has come to faith because of the close friendship she has with my wife.

Kella...Thanks! My husband and I have many friends who are ex-felons who are now servants of Christ. One is a preacher whom God delivered from prison when he was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for murder.

Good advice Susie

Robyn...I would advise you to pray for your niece and leave her alone since you admit that this is only curiosity on your part. God also forgives murderers.

Hi, not to be argumentative, but I don't think all of us are called to prison ministry. Some of us have been hurt very badly by crime and the scars are still there. But yeah, if God is calling someone to go, they need to--but we need to use wisdom and make sure it's God's will or we could get in serious trouble.

My niece's mom died in 2001. Her mother was my half sister. Her dad committed suicide a few years before then. I would like to contact her but something in my spirit says no. I think I am more curious about her than anything. I don't want that curiosity to get me into trouble. I was also told she has a temper like a bulldog. I don't want to be her next victim. Possiblity.

Hi, Robyn . . . first I would say get rid of the fear, then see what is clear (o: God bless you! I think that's good that you care enough to consider this. "fear of death" is bondage (Hebrews 2:14-18), "There is no fear in love" (in 1 John 4:18) So, in any case, we need to lose that fear. "And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful." (Colossians 3:15)

We are told to be ministers of the gospel in the prisons too. But most of the time we don't worry that a person will get out and think they have a right to come see us or live with us, so be prepared.
You can find people to minister to her too.
But as a christian "I think" your obligation is to take the message.
be blessed

You have been told that your niece with whom you have had NO relationship killed someone and is now in prison because of it. You are afraid to contact her. Before you start assuming that she is in prison for murder, I suggest you check to see if that is really the case. You can search by typing in "(name of state) inmate search". Example" "Kansas inmate search"

As a prison minister, I can tell you that she needs all the encouragement and support she can get until she is through this ordeal. She also needs Jesus. There are many ministries going into prisons. If you are concerned with her, I suggest you contact the Prison Chaplain. If you are just curious about her, I suggest you leave it alone.

It would be a Christian thing to do is to reach out to her, and also hear her side of it all and also while she is there if she doesn't know Jesus Christ now is the perfect time for u to tell her about him. And also Jesus said to love your enemies that includes her too, no matter what she has or hasn't done.

Robyn. No more tip-toe-ing is my motto. Yes absolutely, and no doubts about it contact her, YOU may be her only ''SALT'' LIGHT, in the darkness of her life, and when all is said and done, standing at the throne of God on the day of judgement, when God says to you, Robyn, Did you love your cousin enough to tell her about me, you won't need to be ashamed, you can say YES LORD I DID.
