Berean Prison Ministry,
Hollow (hello) i have recive the bible from you. And i want to thank you from the bottom of my heart it was a blessing to me. I was wondering what i could give yall. I have any money. So one way is to let yall know that i will use it other is to give yall a small testimony to let yall know what God had done. let me start with my name is Rey i am 40 years old and i am doing a 6 year sentenecs (sentence) well i was a gangamember from that i started selling drugs with this time i have shoot 2 time in the back shoot other time in the am and stambed (stabbed)2 time in the leg and when i got shoot one weekend the next weekend got shoot again. and those were the times i was hit there were many more times now you tell me that that devil was trying to get me. But my God was there all them time he wouldn't let the devil take me then i didn't know that i was looking for something to fill what i was messing (missing) inside. I tryed everything belive me. And i belivie that if God tooks care me all them time and i me all them time he haves something big for me. I thank (think) God put me in here for me to leancen (lean or learn) to him i was always on the move. Now that i have thanks (things) have been changing. I know when God is ready to let me go i will be a new man from the in side out God talked to me can you belive that me who would thank (think) you my God loves me. I can ask him the smallies things and i turn around and someone will come and tell me what i just asked him. I would just thank (think) it was luck. No i would just ask something just to see everytime God is good well i have to stop doing it my way now i am doing his way. I am in a maximum secretly (security) prison and there is a lot of anger Hate saness (sadness?) here I can feel it all the time around me but with all that is going on i feel love joy pices (peace) i tell God i don't want to be here i did like you God does it's not time to me to leave yet so senck (sent) me to a trusty camp. So that's were i am at right now. That was just a lil of my testimony so thank yall and god bless you. Please let your ministry know that they are making a diffenc (difference) ! Thank You Rey
The second letter was much easier to read, printed up very neatly:
I got your address from a friend, and I helped him do his bible study so we could play Spaides, a card game. I found the study very interesting. Will you please send a large print Bible to me? I'm 52 years old and my eyes are growing dim, Also will you send me the Bible studies?
P.S. Thank you, and God, Bless you.
The last letter for today:
Dear Friend in Christ
I really appreciate the bible you was kind enough to share with me. I would sure put it to good use. I have been a son of the Lord for almost four years now. I have to admit that it is hard being a child of God and living in the same image of his son Jesus Christ. And living by his laws which he put before us AMEN.
I would love very much if you will add me in your prayer. I'm always asking the Lord to free me from this prison and gives me another opporturity to go out in the world. And let everyone know that Jesus Christ died on that cross to save us of All of OUR Sins. I wish you every success in your walk with the Lord Jesus Christ.
May God bless you and let his light shine down upon you and your loving family etc. Your brother in Christ Charles
