I am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude to you.
What a comfort it is to know that people genuinely care without expecting something in return.
Many times here in prison the devil tempts me to wonder if God loves me. Then there is a little light shining in the darkness.
That is you, your prayers and encouraging words.
I am so blessed to know that people we’ve never met have that much concern for others.
This has to be from God. It’s the common bond we share in Christ which gives us this love for each other.
I would ask for you to pray for God’s man to be found to fill the vacant chaplain’s position here.
Also, please continue to pray for me.
This is very very lonely here. The separation from my family crushes me.
Here are some verses in closing,
Romans 12:12, 13, 15
Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
