I just received your letter today and I am so thankful for your presence in my life. Your birthday card and well-wishes made my heart full of joy. Thank you so much for what your ministry does for prisoners. I especially enjoyed reading The New Creation and the word search you included. May God bless your hearts and those of your ministry’s volunteers.

I pray that this letter reaches you all in health and good spirits. And that our Lord is with you always! The reason I am writing this letter is to give you thanks. I thank you because every year for the last eight years I have gotten a birthday card from you – and every year it brings a smile to my face! It lets me know that someone out there remembers me. If no one else ever sends me a card, I know without a doubt that I’ll get one from you. So once again I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a beacon of light the week of my birthday each year.

I would like to thank your basketball team for taking time out of their lives to come to North Central Camp and spend time with us. The game was a blast, even though you guys stomped us, but the halftime was a special one. The story that “Q” shared with us really spoke to me because it was real talk, straight from his heart. Then when Kyle took the mic, I felt like I was the only one in the gym and he was speaking directly to me! I wasn’t even going to play in this game but something kept pushing me to go to the gym and get in the game. Now I know it was our God that wanted me to go and shake hands with some mighty fine men! Keep up the good work and God bless you all.

I got it in my heart to write to you and just say thank you for your visit. I really had a wonderful time playing softball but I had an even better time just talking and hearing your stories. All of the guys that came that day will forever have an impact in my life. I can’t thank you enough for all the love and compassion that emitted from each of you. I can’t express how much of a class act you were. I hope and pray God continues to use each and every one of you and I know I will see you in heaven one day!

I so appreciated the New Creation letter you sent me, especially the article called, “O God, please don’t let Jesus come today”. I cannot even come close to expressing my gratitude. You folks are definitely doing God’s will with the dedication that you are putting towards reaching out to prisons. Whether you know it or not, you have inspired the brothers here at Chillicothe to reconsider their walk of faith, or even if they have one. It was especially wonderful to see black men doing something so positive (Ed. note: he is referencing the SPM basketball team that visited last March). Where I’m from all we get credit for is stabbings, stealing, and running out on our babies – so please keep inspiring people and speaking the Word with your testimonies and talents!
