SAGU players bless the families of prisoners 

wbb-angel-tree-2013WAXAHACHIE, Texas  --  When a basketball is passed leads to someone’s benefit, the one doing the passing is awarded with an assist in statistics. But when it comes to passing gifts to those in need, the joy of open-handed giving is its own reward.

The annual holiday service project of the Southwestern Assemblies of God University women’s basketball team continues to bless families with an incarcerated parent.

Veteran Head Coach Arlon G. Beadles, now in his ninth season at SAGU, his staff and players purchased and collected gifts that were given to the Angel Tree program being coordinated by a local church.

In conjunction with Prison Fellowship, a Christian prison ministry founded by the late Chuck Colson to evangelize prisoners and restore families through faith-based reentry programs, Christmas gifts given to Angel Tree go directly to the children of America’s 425,000 prisoners.

The Lady Lions team gave their wrapped gifts to Carmen Ingram, the pastor at Palmer Assembly of God church in Palmer, Texas. The town of two-thousand is just twelve miles east of Waxahachie.

The church spearheads the distribution of the gifts as directed by Angel Tree.
