Letters For Inmates

August 8, 2011

Well, I need help again! The three other times I’ve asked people to send letters to inmates here many of you have responded. I was s-o-o-o-o-o blessed to see the response! Some of these guys get no mail, no visits for months or years! This system destroys lives, families and civilizations. God’s Word and His law is perfect (Psalm 19) – Duh!

Inmate Michael Write #21627-047 is a friend here that has not gotten any mail in a l-o-o-o-n-g time! I get a pile every day. He saw me in the chapel and I could see the sad look on his face. He said, “I sure wish I had some mail.” I said, “Are you serious?” He said, “Yes! I’d love to get some mail.” I said, “OK! Lots of folks who love the Lord have responded to requests to encourage inmates so I’ll see if I can get you some mail.”

In light of our command to fulfill Matthew 25:34-46, please send Mike some mail—any mail. Church bulletins, a single gospel tract, a simple note saying, “I’m praying for you.” I don’t know him very well other than he is divorced, has three children, is lonely here, and is from Nebraska. Pray about it and if God leads, send him a letter. It may be you in prison one day. Read Matthew 24. The scripture Galatians 6:7 may be really handy! Keep close to the Lord and win souls!

    Dr. Hovind,

    Not long ago, months only, I came across your website, DrDino.com and was totally blown away with your enthusiam and knowledge and wit in teaching creation vs evolution. I must say, your videos enlightened me in many ways and helped me with struggles of dealing fossil evidence of evolution. I learned a lot. It is only today, that I have continued doing some research and sadly found that you are incarcerated and being moved to CO from GA. At least in GA, you were close to family and loved ones. Why are they moving you? Something else just crossed my mind and I wanted to write it. Your faith is very strong, I respect that. You have your critics, as we all do. If one becomes a leader, you will have your critics. Stand up in a crowd and you will catch some tomatoes. With that said, your website and teachings continue. I have met many people that spent time in jail or have a mission to minister to those in jail. (They are a captive audience of sorts.) I respect your requests for inmates to receive mail. That is an honorable and respectful thing to do. What I am curious about is if you are able to reach any of these inmates with your message and thought on creation vs evolution. Like you, I have always had a hard time taking a single tooth or bone fragment and calling that the missing link. What I could not get past was the obvious fossil of animals and “science” stating that the rock is x millions of years old with carbon dating and other tools. Your message is powerful and right on. I will have my children watching the videos soon and perhaps inspire them. The two teen boys I have do not like me draging them to church. I am trying. In closing, since you are where you are, how are you making the best of the situation and allowing god to work through you and this situation to continue you teaching. Hopefully you will continue to have internet access and can readily communicate with family and friends. All my best.

    Dear Dr Hovind,
    I would like very much to write Michael and you nut don’t have an address to send the letters to. Please e-mail me one and I will get letters out right away.
    Please pray for my Grandson, Tanner he is 6 years old and was diagnosed with Dushanes Muscular Dystrophy about 1 1/2 years ago. He looooves dinosaurs so much.He talks about them all the time, He is so smart. Please pray for him and My son who blames God for Tanners illness, he loved God and now he’s hurt and I want him to love God again. Thank you
    Love in God.

    Dear Dr. Hovind,

    During the past 24 years I have worked in prison/Penn as a correctional officer. I’ve seen the best and worst…and not just from inmates….In the last few years I found your seminars/website. I was blown out of the religious water so to speak when watching your vids….At last someone who put the word of God in a form anyone could understand. My soul was opened. I believe God uses your mind to spread his word. Even when I found out you were sent to jail. He is using you to forward the saving of lost souls.
    In the last few years I have shared your vids with other officers. What was really eye opening was founding your vids in the inmate library. Life has changed in many ways due to your stonewall logic. Which has been used by myself to debate others to see God’s truth! Not man’s.
    I pray for you and your family. Prison is a whole other culture that the public may not understand.

    Thank you for expressing the truth as it should be seen an heard.
    Jesse Campos

    Hello Dr. Hovind,

    First, I’d like to say I’ve been watching your green, red, and blue VHS tape sets for over ten years. I purchased all three sets way back then, and just played the “Childrens Video about Dinosaurs” tape last night for my 6-year old son and his friend Brady.

    I am a firm believer that evolution is wrong, and am dumbfounded at how many people buy into it. I am also sad to see how mean evolutionists can be. They attack people like yourself with such venom.

    I was heartbroken today when I found out you are in prison. It does not change the truth of creation, but I’m sure the evolutionists had a field day.

    I will be praying for you, your wife, and your children. My hope is that you will be able to be back with them soon, and that your drdino ministry will continue to grow and win people to the saving knowledge of Jesus.

    -Jeff

    I hope Dr Hovind will see this message. Hi Dr. hovind. My name is Marlon Malone, an I live in the Caribbean island of Barbados. Its a true honor to be able to speak with you . I truly thank the Lord for all the work youve been doing and have done over the years in your ministry. I came across one of your seminars two years ago and i have been transformed by your message. Ive since then used the them to lead people to the Lord.. and my friends and I have all been blessed to see Gods work come to pass. Im 27 and im now a youth president in our small church here in Barbados. If u ever see this message, be blessed Dr. Hovind! The Lord is with you indeed!! Continue to praise him like Paul and Silas!!. It would be a priviledge to meet you someday in person! My wife and i would love that. I think we could learn so much from the man behind it all. May our Lord Jesus be with you always. You are indeed one of my greatest inspirations! My blessings be upon you. Amen. I hope u can respond. It would be an honor sir. ~ Marlon Malone

    This has gone to far! Taxes are Illegal, the Government is a fraud! Get this Christain man out of jail! He speaks the word of God, and look what they do to him. I am baffled, ashamed of our systems in the world. Dr. Kent Hovind, if you ever get the chance to read this, I am so sorry for everything you have had to go through. I am so appauled at how this happened. Satan really does have armies even on earth. It is a disgrace, and God is watching everything they do, or say. I pray that you have found peace behind bars, it is such a shame! I am so very upset. Just because you preached, gave great gospel, some how some where they will find to crush any who speaks Gods word. They will be judged in their own ways. Money is evil, full of greed. Just because of taxes you are in jail? This shows how evil money really is. I loved watching all of your shows. You have proven Evolution to be a complete fraud. You made many crumble just in the name of God. They fear what they dont know. They will fear God when Judgement comes. This is a scandal, a fraud from the goverment! They fear God, so they use an excuse of money to throw one of Gods men behind bars. Now I dont care what you have done, Jesus doesnt either, for he knows your heart is true, strong. The goverment should have better things to do then this. They are so lazy they have nothing better to do, then to pick the strong and try to throw them down. They see you as a threat! I wouldnt doubt it if this was some sort of set up. I pray Jesus will make them shudder. Putting a brother of God in jail, is like breaking a birds wing so it wont ever fly.. We all know a birds wing can fix in time and fly again. I cant wait till you get out to prove, and show them you wont ever stop being a strong faithful man. You have givin me hope in so many ways for my Christain faith. You are an amazing man Dr.Kent Hovind, God knows it too.

    MAT 23:25 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you
    hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside
    they are full of greed and self-indulgence.

    I pray for you Dr.Kent Hovind, I also pray for the ones who put you there. They need more praying for then most.
