March 14, 2016

The last day of a Saints Crusade is always bittersweet.  There is a combination of not wanting to leave the teammates that you have bonded/fought/cried/teased/battled with all week.  It is also tough to know that our first prison visit in Illinois is still 2 months away and that this will be the last time to wear the Saints uniform and share the Gospel in a prison yard for a while. …
