We have a very special “welcome home” post today!
Mark L. has been in prison since 10/1/1994 … and was released today. 20 years, 1 month, 13 days later.
This Class 20 graduate was actually granted parole earlier, but he **declined** it and opted to stay in prison. Why?
Because Mark had been chosen as one of 10 servant leaders (prior PEP graduates) to transfer to a new prison to help us launch a new program near Dallas, Texas. Mark “had a job to do and wanted to see it through to the end.” Read more about this here; Mark is also pictured below.
Thanks to Mark’s servant leadership, around 40 other inmates recently completed this new program in PEP. And today … after 7,349 days behind bars … Mark is free at last.
Welcome home, “Sweet Homey the Clown”!
