As Mark Earley reports today, 50,000 prisoners' children are still in need of Christmas gifts -- gifts that could change their lives forever. Mark tells the story of one family, the Abreus, who experienced just such a change:
On Christmas Eve, the Abreus heard a knock on the door. “There was a UPS guy with a big box,” Mayra explains. It said, “from Jose Abreu.” But how could that be? Jose was in jail.
But then Mayra remembered Angel Tree.
The kids were ecstatic. There were gifts from Dad!
As Mayra recalls: “I cannot describe to you the joy that my children and I felt when we opened [the presents]. I thanked God right there. I cried, and went on my knees. This is when I knew that God loved me, and I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into my life.”
