Hello, Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here!
I have been working with members of the Mennonite community and they provide services to the incarcerated population in Colorado.
To my chagrin, there were a few political concerns and they were not allowed in for a while.
We do not have the same belief system, (I don’t believe in the Trinity),but I will tell you what, they know how to create structure in a prison and ensure positive outcomes.
There was a void when they were not in the prison and they were missed.
In my capacity in the prison, I ensured I was the first to go and ask for them to return. We should never have kicked them out in the first place.
(If you are in my prison leadership and you disaprove of my opinion, eat a rotten otter.)
Anyway, on a personal note, they are a wealth of information and have given me advice on all of my agricultural endeavors.
In addition, they have a nifty chain of thrift stores. Some of them sell chocolate covered coffee beans. I mean, shopping for mom, coffee for dad… Wow, just wow.
Well, got to go for now. If you are ever in Colorado, Meet a Mennonite. 😁
