Dear Sister Griffee,

I pray that this letter finds you doing well, and the ministry God has blessed you to facilitate.  As always, I’m praying that God will continue to do great things through your ministry. 

I’m a living witness how your ministry has encouraged me through many troubling times.  I’m sowing a love offering into the ministry and pray that I’m able to continue as God gives me the ability to do so.

May God continue to bless you and the ministry.

Brother Clarence

Dear Sister Griffee,

I would like to thank you for your continual support of your teaching of the Word of God through your newsletter.  I have learned a lot.
I will try to put them to practice daily.  Thank you again.

Sister, I will keep you on my prayer list, and I will pray for you three times a week.  I hope the Lord grants you abundant mercy and grace to spread the Gospel all around the states, and into the world.

Praise the Lord!  May God bless you and your ministry to reach out, not only to inmates, but also into the world to those who need the Gospel, for God desires that everyone be saved.

Please pray for me that I may be able to send my donation to you for the ministries.  I hope to hear from you again. 

With my respects, Chanyun

Greetings, I hope and pray that this letter finds you in good health and good spirit.  Amen.

First of all, thank you; and thank you so very much for mailing me, very regularly, “My Brother’s Keeper”.  I greatly appreciate that!

I 100% believe that if I keep reading your great spiritual material, then I will grow more in spirit.  Please keep mailing me “My Brother’s Keeper”.  Thank you so very much for your love and kindness towards me and the other inmates.  God bless you and your loved ones.

Love through Jesus, Simon

Dear Sharon and Alan,

I’m writing to thank you for the newsletters you’ve sent me throughout the year.  They have been a blessing and encouragement in my daily walk with the Lord. 

Your newsletter, “My Brother’s Keeper”, Volume 23, Number 4, Fourth Quarter 2018, was quite a beautiful and stern message, which I’ve got to share with a brother who fell under the “pride” spell.  I loved every bit of it and will keep it in my repertoire.

I want to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a joyous and prosperous New Year.

Thank you, Freddy

Dear Christian Ambassadors,

Clearly, we are commanded to love our neighbor as ourselves.  We are told that our love is not shown in words alone, but in actions of love and deeds.  Jesus stated as a principle in Matthew 25:35 that to clothe, feed, and visit the stranger was to do it as unto Him.

In my own life I have experienced the love, care, and provision of many wonderful Christians, especially while in prison.  Most of them were not rich or influential people, but humble, loving saints.  We don’t have to be rich and powerful to show the heart of the Father.  Even from prison the Lord has enabled me to help many families and individuals financially, spiritually, and lovingly in their times of need.  I would not be the person I am today if the Lord had not put such loving saints in my life.  I am eternally grateful to God and to them.

I express gratitude for everyone, including you at CA, as you’ve labored to bless us in prison. 

God bless you! Roger

Dear Sharon and Alan,

Season’s Greetings in the joyous name of our precious Lord and Savior of men, Jesus Christ.
I want to thank you all for being my covenant missionary partners, and for always finding me (as I have been transferred 4 consecutive times this year).  On to my next assignment and witnessing for our most high Majesty!  It’s purely my honor and my personal pleasure in accepting my mandate.

I want you also to know just how much you both have been an uplifting spirit to me in my times of doubt, and the steadfast encouragement that this ministry has instilled in me after 13 years.  To thrive yet forward and continue to fight the “good fight of faith”.  I am due to be released to a halfway house next year.  Please keep me in your prayers.

But I could not rest until I had the golden opportunity to share with you, just how much the last “My Brother’s Keeper”, and the December 2018, Letter and Spiritual Growth Lesson, “Thou Art Worthy, O Lord” by sister Sharon K. Griffee, [meant to me].  It really stirred my spirit in ways and to such depths that I actually shed a real tear!  You certainly know exactly how to evoke my soul to be led by the Spirit and the Gift of Christ Jesus, being at the very God Head, over and of my life.  Please sister Sharon, continue to allow Him to use you!

I pray that in the coming years that we all will continue to let our glorious inner illuminating lights to shine ever so brighter before men, women, and children, who need to be led out of the dampest and darkest places that hold them captive.  In Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.

Your brother in Christ, Robert

Dear Sister Sharon,

I wanted to say thanks for your newsletter and for allowing me to put poems in, off and on, since 2015.  It has helped me to express how I have been making it through this time in FMUCC.  Thank you very much.

Zephaniah 3:17 (NLT) – “For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”

God Bless you, Kathryn
