Face to Face; Eighteen-year-old Keith Blackburn put his .25 caliber pistol to the side of Misty Wright’s head and pulled the trigger. The bullet went through her gum, through her esophagus, and severed her carotid artery. He left her for dead. Miraculously Misty survives and after only serving a nine years of a twenty year sentence, Misty learns her shooter is released from prison. After suffering from severe PTSD, Misty files a restraining order against her assailant. In a second chance encounter, Misty realizes Keith doesn’t even know who she is. 

Their story will leave you speechless. 

Eighteen years after the shooting, Misty contacted Keith. “I said, ‘I know you know who I am. I don’t want to fight. There’s nothing to argue about at this point… but it’s what God does that will make you raise a Hallelujah! …but I need you to know I have forgiven you so I can move on with my life,’” said Wallace.

Join us for a 3 part series and hear an amazing true story of how God reconciled two strangers after a brief, almost deadly encounter; one the victim, the other the offender, through the power of forgiveness.

Forgiven Ministry; Scottie and Jack Barnes… It was a cold winter day in January when we left the grave of my father. I remember saying, “If God could ever use the story of his life, I would share it wherever He wanted it told. Ten years later, I was invited to visit our local prison unit. I shared my Dad’s story and was amazed how God chose to use it for His glory. I saw inmates weep and identify with the words I spoke. I saw the Holy Spirit of God begin to soften those hardened hearts. When our local unit closed, I prayed, “Lord, help me find my place in your work.” Immediately, God opened doors for me to share my testimony in prisons, churches and children’s homes.”

Scottie grew up with an absent father who was incarcerated in prison. Mr. Pennell was a kingpin in the mafia.  Scottie was an only child and the daughter of an inmate. Her childhood was vague of memories of her father, except the brief times her mother would take her to visit her father in prison.

Forgiven Ministry’s Mission: Bringing the Good News of God’s love and forgiveness to those behind bars.Our mission is to meet the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of the children of inmates, the inmates themselves, ex-inmates and inmates’ families, with the result of healing wounds inflicted by crime, redirecting lives, and restoring these individuals into the community as productive citizens, parents and family members. The Holy Spirit is ever-present behind those iron bars. Reconciliation, love and forgiveness are major factors and beautifully orchestrated when the inmates children enter a prison for a One Day with God Camp with their incarcerated parent. Behind the cold steel razor wire and iron bars there’s a party going on and you hear praise and worship music, while games are being played, and lives are being changed, forever. The laughter of the fathers or mothers echoes in the hearts of the children and their parent long after the party is over. The memory s will never fade.

Etta Caver –  from victim to advocate…
Etta didn’t know about violence when she was growing up, but the unexpected murder of her mother began a tragic life journey through two different domestic violence relationships.  When she tried to leave, she ended up in the hospital, and kept going back as the violence escalated. “Nobody gave me sound advice or information on how to be safe,” she said, and she soon ran out of hospitals because she wouldn’t go back to one a second time.” Etta had taken her last beating.Just to be sure though, she had her 11-year-old son snap a photograph of her pummeled face. It was the only picture she ever allowed of herself. The image wasn’t for evidence against her abusing boyfriend. It was a reminder never to go back, never to allow this to happen again. Not by anyone. “There are a lot of people who don’t understand the dynamics of domestic violence. They don’t understand why you just don’t leave,” she said. “But that is the most dangerous time for a victim. They’re so vulnerable.” Knowing what she does now, her sister Kimberly said she cannot imagine the strength it takes to admit what happened and share it with others. Etta advocates for those suffering in silence in domestic relationships. You can reach Etta through the STACIE Foundation at info@staciefoundation.org.
