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!
