I pray this letter finds y’all in the best of health physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. As for me, I am blessed – and I received a beautiful birthday card and the New Creation today! I want to thank all the Saints who mail out every one of these cards, every year. Thank you for my card and y’all are appreciated! The card made my day!
I’ve been incarcerated since I was 19 years old, and I just turned 44 this month. I’ve learned so much wisdom, understanding, and knowledge from God and His Word, and the Saints like y’all. Continue to let y’alls light shine everywhere you go, May God bless y’all and keep y’all always. He watches over you!

It is always pleasant to hear from you guys on my birthday. I receive each one of you to be my birthday gift from heaven! Since the day I first met you at Belle Glades CI you haven’t given up on me. This is what God’s loyalty means, which you have demonstrated toward me while I’m in prison – thank you kindly for that! I’ve just turned 55, praise the Lord, and you are my truest friends in the Lord. I appreciate al the prayers and encouragement that come in the cards throughout the years and the prisons I have seen you at. God bless!

I’m very blessed to have friends like you in my life, friends that are real. Thank you for thinking of me and remembering my birthday. That shows that you really did read the little card I filled out that day and you kept it! I remember you all because you came at a perfect time in my life to encourage me when I was waiting on a response to my appeal. I was 17 years old when I was locked up and now I’m going on 20 years in prison. I’m hoping to go home to my mother this year, she needs me because her health is bad. Thanks for everything you do!

I hope this letter reaches you in good health and God’s blessing. I’m writing this to my friends at the Saints because I have received my parole and will not be in prison on my birthday this year! I have appreciated the love and dedication that you have shown for me over these 10 years. Your cards meant so much to me when I felt forgotten. I hope to be able to continue to correspond with you when I get home.

Thanks for the birthday card. It means so much to me because I don’t get no mail or nothing from the remaining living relatives I have on the outside – they done left me for dead. But I still pray for them because I can only do what’s right and let God handle the rest. Thanks again for your love and care for me. I ain’t giving up because I know God hears me when I pray.
