I have to admit, I was really nervous about him being here. He was not incarcerated for a violent crime, however, I'm sure 23 years in prison didn't help him become a better person IMHO. I know that he had bad experiences there and he was not a model prisoner. Anyway, he stayed for hours and didn't seem to want to leave. I could be totally wrong, but I was worried that he was looking for an invitation to stay. God forgive me but I am scared to have him stay. I made a few phone calls and found the building address where his sister lives, but there's no guarantee she will take him in. I felt so guilty sending him out with maybe no place to go tonight, but I am scared to have him stay with me or my mother.
Please pray that his family embraces and supports him through what I'm sure is a very uncertain adjustment period. Please pray that he is able to get on public assistance or finds a job so he doesn't wind up back in prison. 23 years is a long time and I am concerned he might be institutionalized. Please also pray that he sees where the boundaries lie within the family friendship. And please pray he finds God. Thank you all in advance.
