I have been meaning to write to you and let you know that you have touched me in a special way, even sometimes I tear up! I just want you to know I really appreciate you thinking of me every year. Often you are the only one I hear from, and that means a lot! I just wanted to take some time out to let you know this – please forgive me for not writing sooner. I love you all!

I would like to thank you for all the cards you have sent me over the years, they were very uplifting. I have received good news…I’ve been granted parole! I still have to wait 120 days for the process and approval from the higher-ups, but I’m going home! I still can’t believe that after being locked up for 41 years, I am going to be free. But I put my faith in God a long time ago and let Him handle it and He did! Once again, thank you for always being there for me.

My name is Lance and I have always meant to say “thank you” for your cards, visits, and work. A long time ago I prayed really hard, reciting the 35th Psalm beforehand, I can honestly say God spoke back to me and I received the miracle of salvation. I’ve since lost everything these 16 years in prison. I know I’m on a list, but even so you remembered my birthday. When NO ONE was left to say anything encouraging to me, you guys did. Thank you.

Just a short note to say Thank You for the cards I’ve received. I tis always nice to be remembered, especially by Christian brothers and sisters. I’m doing pretty well on my end. I got involved with a logistics class and I get a certification for completing it. The certification is good for 5 years and I get out before then, so it should help me get a job (or better job) faster than many ex-cons I’ve heard from. Thank you for thinking of me, my friends. Take care of yourself and be blessed.

I am respectfully writing, in the name of Jesus and His love. Your ministry has sent me several birthday cards, but I have never written back until now. But God intends His people to team up to encourage each other as well. The apostle Paul urged the Thessalonians to encourage one another and build each other up (I Thess 5:11). God has put us – ministries like yours and people like me – into each other’s lives for support; we need each other to keep walking the path of life in Jesus. So, on behalf of all the many men and women behind bars, fences, and walls today…THANK YOU for your prayers, visits, services, and support. We don’t always acknowledge your thoughtfulness as we should, however I know many who deeply appreciate your genuine love in Christ.

My last letter to you said I wanted to go where God wanted me and do what He wanted me to do. Well, he answered, and I have been moved to SCI Mahanoy. I truly believe I am on a mission here because it is far more open than my previous prison was. Church services began again the end of August and I realize now how much I missed it! I also had the opportunity to go out to the Big Yard and they have started letting out more than just two dorms at a time. Things are getting better – as you can see I am on the Word Processor again in the Law Library! Maybe we’ll even get to see your basketball team again this winter!

Well, we are still on modified lockdown here but getting a little more movement lately. We are getting 90 minutes of rec time, 3 times each day now and we are allowed to walk to the chow hall and actually sit to eat the meals ( we were getting meals in our cells). It’s all been a good thing because it is great to be able to get outside and breathe the fresh air. We’re able to be out of our cells for various reasons from 6am to 9pm, except for count or an incident. So at least we aren’t just caged animals like we were for over a year. Thank you for remembering me; your Thinking of You card came at a great time. Peace and Love! – Name withheld, an inmate in the Federal Bureau of Prisons I wanted to let you know I appreciate your Birthday cards, thank you, I only have a few family members left so I only get a couple. So your cards are meaningful. Again Thank you.
