Annie Howard

In 1991 she was awarded one of President Bush’s “Thousand Points of Light” awards for her Prison Fellowship volunteer work in the Kentucky Correctional Institute for Women.

Holds choir practice in the prison chapel, has an evening Bible study, hosts a dinner for 6 volunteers in her home–all in an evening!

All the women at the prison know Annie. They know she doesn’t get paid to do this. They know she loves them. It doesn’t matter to her what they have done. She treats them all equally.

Its dangerous work. She feels the presence of Satan. She feels the battle for people’s souls–like a battle between darkness and light!

The award Annie received from President Bush is a heavy medallion with a stylized candle on it. Its on a gold chain, designed to be worn around her neck. Not the sort of thing you’d wear to the grocery store.

But Annie doesn’t need to wear a big gold candle for people to see her light. They know she represents Jesus. They can see Him shining through her.
