When President Donald Trump ran on helping forgotten Americans, perhaps not everyone realized until his recent announcement supporting bipartisan criminal justice reform legislation that this included those who are most hidden in our society – people in prison. To be sure, those behind bars made poor choices. However, President Trump recognizes we all have an interest in making sure they return to society ready to be law-abiding, productive citizens.
Having organized prison ministry programs for many years, I have seen firsthand that we cannot afford to ignore our fellow Americans in prison and the moral imperative to help guide them to a better life. This does not mean naiveté about the existence of evil, including the fact that a small segment of people cannot be rehabilitated and should never be released. But just as Jesus sent his apostles to the remotest parts of the earth so the gospel might spread its light in all the world, we must act today to ensure our policies infuse hope into the darkest corners of our nation.
That’s why nearly 3,000 faith leaders have come together to support the First Step Act. The core of the legislation would help rebuild broken lives by providing incentives for federal prisoners to participate in rehabilitation programs that are proven to reduce recidivism. Just like in the real world where there is a connection between our deeds and how we are treated by others and the government, this provision of the Act will enable all but the most serious prisoners to earn time towards release to a halfway house by successfully completing treatment programs.
Another provision of the First Step Act would outlaw the shackling of mothers giving birth in prison. While most Americans were surprised this occurred, I haven’t met anyone who thinks it should be allowed to continue. The sanctity of life does not end at the prison gates and just because someone committed a crime we should not strip them of their dignity inherent in being created in the image of God.
It is also partly because all people are unique and valuable that we must take care in making sentencing decisions to consider the specific facts of the case. The person’s life work, including both prior offenses and admirable conduct, must be accounted for so we don’t judge someone solely based on the worst day or moment of their life.
Yet an adherence to rigid mandatory minimum laws means that federal judges too often must impose a sentence that cannot be adjusted based the specific facts of the case. Fortunately, four modest but important sentencing reform provisions affecting nonviolent offenders are included in the Senate version of the First Step Act.
One case that would have been covered by these targeted sentencing provisions is that of Weldon Angelos. He was sentenced to 55 years in federal prison because he dealt marijuana while possessing an otherwise legal gun, even though he never used or even brandished it. In his case and countless others, federal judges, including many conservatives, lamented that they were left with no choice but to impose an unjust sentence in cases involving low-level drug offenders.
Even as we feel a moral command to ensure our criminal justice system reflects our values, it is important to remember that the First Step Act is not an article of faith, but based on proven results in states across the country. Indeed, it is red states most of all like Texas, Georgia, and South Carolina that have proven we can both cut crime and incarceration at the same time.
Part of their recipe for success was expanding proven rehabilitation programs, including those with a faith component, that change the way prisoners think so they develop empathy and focus on long-term goals rather than immediate gratification. The First Step Act invests $250 million over the next decade in such programs, but research suggests by reducing recidivism we will obtain a strong return on this investment.
Congress must act now to follow the President and many law enforcement organizations like the Fraternal Order of Police in supporting the First Step Act. Only by lifting up those who have been forgotten can we all end up in a better place.

Paula White-Cain stands by President Trump's side as he announces introduction of his Prison Reform First Step Act...
Pastor Paula was in attendance at the White House to stand by in support of President Donald J. Trump as he called on Congress to take action and support the FIRST STEP Act, a bipartisan bill that will reform America’s prisons and improve our Nation’s criminal justice system.
“Our whole Nation benefits if former inmates are able to reenter society as productive, law-abiding citizens,” the President says.
One-in-three American adults today has some type of criminal record, and more than 2 million Americans are in prison—including 181,000 in Federal penitentiaries. More than 95 percent of these inmates will eventually leave prison and face the challenge of restarting their lives. Among Federal inmates today, nearly 40 percent will be rearrested within five years of release.
That outcome helps no one. The FIRST STEP Act will make our communities safer by making our justice system work better in three key ways:
Provide incentives for low-risk inmates to receive crucial support services, including vocational training and faith-based programs to ease reentry
House more prisoners in facilities closer to their own communities, allowing for family visitation and greater local support
Roll back certain provisions of former President Clinton’s infamous crime law, reforming mandatory minimums that have led to racially discriminatory outcomes and increased prison overcrowding
Pastor Paula reveals that a letter written to Congressional leaders, and signed by more than 2000 evangelical pastors was delivered to the White House in support of the President Trump's Prison Reform "First Step" Act. This historic act will become the most significant effort at criminal justice reform to be passed in a generation. She proudly says, "I am so honored to work with people from all over on Prison Reform!"

Paul White Ministry provides vital recovery assistance at "Ground Zero" of destruction in aftermath of hurricane Michael...
The destruction of Hurricane Michael is catastrophic as whole communities from Panama City to Marianna and beyond were severally affected. Homes were ripped apart, trees uprooted, schools demolished, churches destroyed, and complete sections of beachfront property leveled. As power crews work around the clock to restore power, tens of thousands of residents of the Pan Handle are without electricity and water.
Paula White Ministries responded quickly and reached ground zero where the 155 miles per hour winds of Hurricane Michael hit landfall at Mexico Beach on October 10th. Pastor Paula immediately dispatched PWM Global Ministries Pastor Todd Lamphere to assess the damage, to assist churches with resources and to set up a distribution channel for survivors. Working with Florida's emergency center, the Salvation Army, Kids Against Hunger and Convoy of Hope, Paula White Ministries has connected churches in the hurricane zone with food, water, and much-needed tarps to distribute to their community. PWM secured 550,000 prepackaged meals that are headed to the gulf coast of Florida.
The recovery process will take a long time and as the rest of the country goes about its business, we cannot forget the people of the Pan Handle. As the body of Christ, we must come alongside our churches and Pastors as they meet the needs of their destroyed churches and homes while responding to the cries of the community.
There are three ways you can help the hurting from the hurricane; First, pray for the people and the churches as they attempt to get back on their feet. Second, Give generously to our special offering to assist churches and families in need. Third, consider heading to the Pan Handle of Florida and assist in the recovery process.
Paula White Ministries, helping the churched help those in need in times of crisis!

Paula White Ministries stays on the ground in North Carolina assisting in devastated regions during long-term recovery process in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence...
Finding strategic partners in devastated regions is critical for any long-term recovery process. Immediately after Hurricane Florence, Pastor Paula White was contacted by longtime ministry supporter and friend, Pastor Ron Barnes of Greater Hope International Church in Lumberton, NC. Partnering with Kids Against Hunger and Convoy of Hope, Paula White Ministries was able to secure over 600,000 prepackaged meals to the economically disadvantaged Lumberton area.
Pastor Barnes took the blessings he had received and then partnered with 15 different churches and organizations to distribute the donated resources. Hurricane Florence displaced thousands from their homes and many ended up in local shelters. Many people lost everything they had for the second time in just two years since Hurricane Matthew. "The gracious donations have allowed us to provide thousands of meals to those who did not know where their next meal would come from," Pastor Barnes said.
The faithful giving of Paula White Ministry partners continues to meet the needs of the hurting and to bring hope, healing, and salvation to those who desperately need it.

Pastor Paula White reveals that President Trump is very serious about his faith...
The Donald Trump that Florida evangelical minister Paula White sees is a good listener, a man who takes his faith seriously while not always being fluent in “Christianese” and, unlike so many of his predecessors, a politician who has kept his promises to faith voters and evangelical Christian groups after he won the presidency with the help of their votes.
“A lot of evangelicals have grown accustomed to feeling used by the political process,” Ms. White said in an interview at The Washington Times this week before heading to yet another White House meeting. “Every politician appeals to us, every one wants to hear us out during the campaign, but then things change once they get into office.”
Mr. Trump, she said, is “just different.”
“He genuinely listened to us, and he genuinely cared,” she said, recalling hours of closed-door spiritual sessions at Trump Tower that Mr. Trump held with a broad array of faith leaders as he weighed campaigns for the presidency in 2012 and 2016. “He wasn’t asking for an endorsement or a contribution. He was looking to hear the heartbeat of the faith community.”
Evangelical voters have proved an unlikely rock of the Trump coalition: More than 80 percent say they support the president. Ms. White said that support has been fully repaid by the administration’s record with the appointments of two Supreme Court justices and a slew of conservative lower-court judges as well as new Justice Department guidelines on religious expression, the relocation of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and the president’s executive order easing enforcement of rules restricting political speech from the pulpit.
“He has always been concerned that the voice of people of faith be heard,” she said. “He campaigned on it, and then he acted on it.”
“America woke up to some truly extraordinary news today, that Pastor Andrew Brunson has been released by the Turkish Government and is finally coming home! On behalf of all Americans, especially Christians, we give him and his family a heroes welcome and we pray they would quickly adjust to life back in the United States. I also want to commend President Trump, Vice President Pence, Secretary Pompeo, Ambassador Brownback, Senator Tillis, and all the other officials who made Pastor Brunson’s case a priority and worked diligently behind the scenes to makes this day a reality.”
Pastor Paula meets at White House with Faith Leaders, the Vice-President and Senior Officials...
On October 9 Pastor Paula convened over 130 Pastors from the state of Florida to the White House for a one-day listening session. Pastors from the 1-4 corridor came to the nation’s capital to discuss policies that affect the countries future and American’s way of life. Ministry leaders from many different denominations and organizations had the opportunity to ask representatives from the President’s administration questions ranging from health care, prison reform and reentry, education, the economy, and religious liberty.
The event featured seven agency Faith Directors that work closely with Pastor Paula who gave insight into the faith initiatives of each of their agencies. The ministry leaders were able to ask questions to the Directors of the Faith and Opportunity Initiative from HUD, FEMA and the Departments of Commerce, Agriculture, Education, Labor, and State. The event allowed the organizations represented to have a personal contact in case they needed assistance in funding or to navigate through governmental issues they are facing.
The event was highlighted by a visit from Vice President Pence who expressed the appreciation from the President and himself on the powerful effect ministries have on our communities, the prayers of God’s people for them and for Pastor Paula’s tireless efforts in bringing God’s people together at the White House.
Paula White Ministries participates in U.S. Department of Agriculture's Communities of Faith and Opportunity Summit...

The summit brought together communities, government agencies, educational institutions and faith-based organizations from nine different states, including Puerto Rico to discuss best practices for making rural communities stronger through collaborative and strategic partnerships.
Todd Lamphere, Pastor of Global Outreach for PWM, spoke to the delegation of 150 community leaders on the importance of directed engagement with the faith community and the power that comes through a partnership with the President's inter-agency Faith Directors. Pastor Lamphere shared the lessons learned and the synergy created from PWM's deliberate decision to connect churches to resources in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria on the island of Puerto Rico.

Pastor Paula White-Cain believes faith is a powerful force multiplier...
This principle was in full display September 11-13 when Pastor Paula White-Cain led the White House Office of Faith and Opportunity Initiative and a delegation of its experienced faith directors from HUD, VA, Agriculture, Commerce and Labor to Puerto Rico to meet with the island's faith leaders. The event was coordinated with the Faith Office of the Governor and attended by the faith directors from the island's 78 municipalities.
Over a three-day period, Pastor Paula and her DC faith team went nonstop listening to the stories of communities affected by Hurricane Maria and doing site visits in the cities of Ponce, Canonovas and Toa Alta. Each site visit included a listening session meeting with the mayor and the cities administrative team.
Pastor Paula and her team were invited to the Governor's Mansion for a private meeting with Gov. Ricardo Rossello. The governor was honored to have a delegation from the Center of Faith and Opportunity Initiatives in Puerto Rico. The goal of this historic visit is to produce long-lasting relationships that will help Puerto Rico experience its best days ever. As the Governor's director of Faith based office Hector Alberterio said, "This visit has made us feel that we are not alone, and we have friends who care enough to grieve with us, see for themselves our needs, and help is get back on our feet."
Pastor Paula and PWM are dedicated to helping the hurting and restore the beautiful people of Puerto Rico.

Paula White Ministries Brings Christmas to a Puerto Rico Orphanage...
Paula White Ministries teamed up with Teen Challenge Puerto Rico to bring Christmas in July to an all boys orphanage in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. The PWM team of 36 members from New Destiny Christian Center donated 2 days and 330 man hours not only painting 2 buildings (one 4 stories high), but also spent quality time playing, laughing and sharing the love of Jesus Christ with these precious children ranging from 5 to 12 years old. The day was filled with food, bounce house fun, basketball, soccer and fun activities with the boys of the orphanage,
The disadvantaged boys were elated at receiving the many donated new gifts ranging from toys to clothes - most of the children could not even carry their bounty of love by themselves. The highlight of the day was seeing every child receive the greatest gift given to man as the children prayed to ask Jesus to come into their hearts!
Paula White Ministries continues in its commitment to meet the needs of the hurricane-ravished island of Puerto Rico and to fulfill the Matthew 25 mandate to help the hurting for Christ Jesus. Pastor Paula thanks you in advance for your kind help in this arduous endeavor, your generous gift will not only help those less fortunate than yourself, but will reap rich rewards for the kingdom of heaven.
Pastor Paula on Jesus, Immigration, and Critics...
Last week, I did an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network describing my visit to a Health and Human Services grantee, Youth for Tomorrow, that does amazing work with unaccompanied immigrant minors. I did the interview to raise awareness amongst CBN's Christian audience for the heartbreaking crisis of child trafficking at our southern border. As just one example, an unthinkable 85% of children at Youth for Tomorrow are victims of human trafficking.
Sadly, instead of inspiring compassion, the interview became yet another unnecessary partisan distraction.
Pastor Paula Sponsors "Project Shine" for Refugee Children...
Pastor Paula participated in the Youth For Tomorrow (VA) Project Shine event, which she co-sponsored, for refugee children ranged from 10-17 years of age, including 55 boys and 49 girls (several of the teenage girls being cared for were pregnant). The faith community came together with Pastor Paula to provide compassionate aid to these refugee minors housed at the care center. Uniting together with leaders from several local ministries, Pastor Paula, participated in "Project Shine", a refugee mission initiative that provides refugee minors with a day of fun, enrichment and hope.
Throughout the day, Pastor Paula, showed forth the love of Jesus to these unfortunate children as she served as an active particpant in serving the children authentic Central American food catered in and gifting each child with a backpack filled with school supplies and a duffle bag stocked full of toiletry items, soccer shirts, socks and shorts. She also sponosored an exciting children's soccer clinic, complete with a soccer gift pack for participants. Most importantly of all, she hugged each child and spoke words of encouragement and God's love into each ear of every child there.
Pastor Paula recently co-sponsored and organized a "Project Shine" event at "His House Children's Home" (FL) , for refugee children ranging in age from 5-12 years old, many of whom are undersized for their age due to prior malnutrition. Throughout the exciting afternoon, the children were loved upon and joined in play by the many caring volunteers from Paula White Ministries and several local church organizations. The children were able to spend the afternoon carefree, playing for several hours in a massive inflatable water park set up just for them to enjoy. Paula White surprised the children as a Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Truck pulled up to the water park playing delightful music. The children cheered as they surrounded the truck, which offered them unlimited ice cream flavors and yummy toppings. Suffice it to say, a copious quantity of smiling did abound on this day!
The director of "His House Childrens Home, Silvia Torres, had this to say about the event: "Dear Pastor Paula, You are such a great blessing! Thank you for all you did to coordinate the event. The children had the most amazing experience with the water slides, bounce house, face painting and yummy ice-cream from Ben and Jerry’s. It was an unforgettable time they will cherish forever. We are thankful for the amazing group of volunteers that came from Paula White Ministries to support and spend quality time with the children".
Pastor Paula Tours Migrant Children's Detainee Center...
Pastor Paula White, senior pastor of New Destiny Christian Center, in Apopka, Florida, and faith advisor to President Trump recently toured a facility of undocumented immigrants in Virginia. She related to CBN News at how she recognizes now that these centers are being falsely narrated in the mainsteam news media.
"The center was amazing," Pastor Paula said. "Not just three square meals, but psychiatric care, clinician, medical care, chapel, events, schooling, language, and love." White said this experience was life-changing. She said," If we are going to be compassionate. We have to have stricter border security and laws."
Pastor Paula wants people to understand that all of the children she met with at the facility had crossed the border without being accompanied by either a parent or guardian - in fact, they were being trafficked by criminals and owe a monetary debt to the border smugglers.
Pastor Paula further related that she has commissioned her church members team to sponsor and volunteer for more faith-based events for the children. "We are bringing backpacks, school supplies, just showing them the love of Christ," said White. White is also working with other churches, to get them involved in this complex issue.
