Alan is one of the incarcerated men to whom we write letters every Friday. I have known Alan and his family for many years. I brought him down to speak to my classes at Helping Up Mission before he began his incarceration in January 2008. From that day until now, we have kept Alan on our daily prayer list and we write him regularly. Recently, we received the following letter from him. It speaks of his own spiritual walk, truly strengthened by his incarceration. It also speaks of his appreciation for the faithful prayers and notes from the men of Helping Up Mission today – none of whom he has actually met.
You can pray for Alan, too. And…if he has inspired anything in you, you can let me know and I will pass it along to him. “Remember them that are in bonds…” (Heb 13:3).
