BATON ROUGE, La. — Over four decades, the inmates of the Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women have counted on Glenda Tate.

Tate, 73, began volunteering with the South Baton Rouge Church of Christ prison ministry more than 42 years ago, leading Bible studies on Tuesday afternoons and worship services on Sundays.

“We were always there,” Tate said of her visits to the prison. “We didn’t cancel at the last minute. When the attendance got down to one inmate on Tuesday afternoon, we still went.”
