    Megan is such an amazing woman! Even in the most appalling prison conditions she just accepted it and got on with being a witness for Christ and I’m quite sure the Holy Spirit had her/his reasons for placing her there. The other prisoners, and we automatically think of “prisoner” in our prejudiced minds as someone who no longer has any control or power to make decisions – almost like a non-person perhaps – must have benefitted from her joy in just being there for Christ. There is always a silver lining and doesn’t it shine forth in Megan’s face! 🙂
