Inmate Letters

I would like to thank you for all of the birthday cards you have sent me over the years and the concern and care that goes with them. Although I have never written back to thank you before this, it has really touched my heart to know that someone cared enough to remember me, especially since some years yours is the only card I get for my birthday.

I have been incarcerated for approximately 34 years now. My parents have long since died, and the only family I have left now are my sister and her son, so it is very nice to hear from someone else in addition to them. Thank you for caring.

Thank you so much for the Bible Studies I’ve done with y’all. After doing these Bible Studies I feel like I have a new life now. I’m a child of God and the Holy Spirit is working in me. I did enroll in Crossroads Bible School as you suggested and I am now working on their lessons. I study the Bible every day, go to church every week, and pray many times a day. I feel my faith life growing and I look at things much different now.

I wake up each morning with a positive attitude, I’m happy, and I love my life. I have so much love in my heart, I just hope and pray that I find a safe place to go to when I am released. I am putting it all in God’s hands because as long as I trust in God, he will never turn His back on me. I still have 18 months left but meeting y’all was the best thing that has ever happened in my life. Thank you again, and please keep in touch.

Thank you for not only the birthday card, which made me feel very special, but also for the information that was included with it. I enjoyed the pastor’s message and it was all very encouraging. I embraced every bit of it and read it multiple times, meditating on it each time. Within the near future, I will submit some of my artwork for you to include in that newspaper. I don’t consider myself an artist, but the guys here say I draw pretty good so maybe you can use it. Again, thank you for the birthday blessing and keeping me in your thoughts.

Thank you for the birthday card –you are very good people. May God bless you with good health for many years to come. I am 68 years old and have been down for 35 years so God is good to keep me healthy this long. I would have wrote sooner but I had to trade my dinner tray for the envelope and stamps to write to you and one other friend who sent me a birthday greeting. Both of you are appreciated very much because I don’t get any other cards or letters except your two on my birthday. My sister don’t write to me and she is very busy working and taking care of the house. They don’t have much too so they can’t send anything. I’ve got no money in here but God is good and I survive by exchanging some of my food for things – I don’t need that much to eat anyway. Say “hello” to all the brothers in Jesus and maybe you can come play ball here someday.
