  1. Kairos Prison Ministry International Communities,
    As you know there is a crisis taking place around the world of which we pray diligently for this virus to go away as swiftly as it has occurred.   Things are changing rapidly in the US with many places of gathering, including our church gatherings, being cancelled due to COVID-19.   The CDC is recommending all large events (50 people or more) are cancelled or postponed for the next several weeks.  We also know they are saying the higher risk persons are older adults and people with serious chronic medical conditions.  Recommendations are for regular 20 second hand washing, social distancing, and self-quarantining if potentially exposed to the virus.
    Most of the State Department of Corrections have stopped access to the facilities for a time period.  A few are leaving it to the local facilities but most of these are also halting visitors and volunteers from coming in.
    Therefore, until further notice, Kairos Prison Ministry International is suspending all Kairos events and meetings.  This includes State meetings, Team meetings, Continuing Ministry events, Advisory Council meetings and training, and Weekends. The State Chapter Committees, Advisory Councils, and teams can meet via conference call, skype, and other electronic avenues in the meantime to discuss Kairos business, pray together, and continue to plan for the future.  We feel it is better to be safe and concerned for our volunteers, their families and those we serve at this time. The next AKT training is late April and we will make a decision on that in the next couple of weeks based on the situation.
    We will reopen as we decide it is safe to do so and based on the coordination with each State Department of Corrections.   We will monitor with the Kairos State leadership weekly and evaluate the situation daily.   We prayerfully hope this all ends soon and all Weekends can be rescheduled later this spring or early summer and Continuing Ministry resumed soon.  
    All communication should be to/from your State Chair related to your specific situation and I will be communicating with them.
    As of now we anticipate Annual Conference will take place in late July.
    Please continue to be in prayer and remember “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”  Philippians 4:6 
    God is in control!
