    Governor Candidate Dr. Robert Ornelas and Hip Hop Group The S.O.G. Crew Support Angel Tree

     
    California Governor Candidate Dr. Robert Ornelas and Thump Records/Universal Hip Hop Group The S.O.G. Crew support Angel Tree and Calvary Chapel Montebello. Hundreds of people attended the event and enjoyed the festivities. There was a puppet show, hip-hop concert, arts & crafts with a special encouraging word from Dr. Robert Ornelas.

    Every child has a story. For 2.7 million American children, that story is filled with the abandonment, loneliness and shame that come from having a mom or dad in prison. For many, it may also include following their parents down the same destructive road to incarceration.

    "It was a huge blessing to spend the holiday with the kids of Los Angeles. We have been a part of Angel Tree for years encouraging the children with our music and message. We were very grateful to be invited by Sandie Meza and Calvary Chapel Montebello to this beautiful Christmas event," said Dr. Robert Ornelas

    Angel Tree, a program of Prison Fellowship, reaches out to the children of inmates and their families with the love of Christ. This unique program gives your church an opportunity to share Christ’s love by helping to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the families of prisoners.

    “When you partner with Angel Tree, you can have confidence that your gift will be used widely and effectively to minister to prisoners and their families. I support their efforts and encourage you to do so as well,” stated Rick Warren, Senior Pastor of Saddleback Church

    Prison Fellowship believes that no life is beyond the reach of God’s power, and they envision a future in which countless prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families, are redeemed, restored, and reconciled through the love and truth of Jesus Christ. They equip local churches and thousands of trained volunteers to spread the Gospel and nurture disciples behind prison walls, so that men and women become new creations in Christ – not repeat offenders. Prison Fellowship prepares Christian inmates to become leaders of their families, communities, and churches once they are released back into the community. They support inmates’ families, helping them become reconciled to God and one another through transformative relationships with local churches.
