One of the comments we hear the most in letters from inmates is, “my family has forgotten me, but I received the Saints birthday card and you let me know that I am not forgotten.” Certainly, this feeling is even stronger when a prisoner receives a handwritten letter from a Saints Pen Pal who has taken time out of their daily life to share the written word with them!
Whether it be to encourage them from God’s Word, talk to them about a problem they find themselves facing inside the prison walls, or just to banter about current events your letter makes a difference for that inmate.
Thank you to those of you who are faithfully serving in this part of our ministry, but we are currently in need of additional Pen Pals; we find ourselves with a waiting list of men and women who very desperately would like a friend to correspond with. If you feel God tugging on your heartstrings to make a difference in someone’s life, perhaps that someone is a person you may never meet!
Please go to our website to complete the Volunteer application and look at the Pen Pal Guidelines or call the Saints Prison Ministry office at 1-609-845-3197 and ask for Janice. She will answer any question you might have and get you started on your Pen Pal journey. You can impact the life of an inmate who really needs to connect with someone and hear more about Christs’ love for them!
Please Find Me a Pen Pal
Thank you for the birthday greetings…”Happy Birthday from the Saints Prison Ministry”! It means more as I get older in age! And I always want you to mail me the New Creation – I read it every time and they have become a part of my life. It is part of my spiritual study to feel the joy of the faith that is inside of me. I love the Lord God and have Jesus Christ as my Savior. I would appreciate a pen pal for mail fellowship; someone to write about a relationship in God’s love. I get lonely with no to write about life on the outside of prison. Please find me a pen pal.
