Letters From Prisoners That Will Move You


I have chosen your ministry to start sending my tithes to every month from now on. I can’t even begin to express how grateful I am to receive the Seeds of Hope devotional every month. When I first requested it from you, I told you that I am living in the faith based dorm which is normally a 2 year program but because of Covid-19 all of the Texas prisons have basically been put on lockdown. No volunteers are allowed on the unit so there is no church and no faith based classes for anyone on the unit, hasn’t been since March 13. So our program has been put on hold and the last 5 months has not counted toward our 2 years. Things have gotten a little crazy in here but overall I think that the unity in our dorm has really gotten stronger. We’ve started our own Bible study groups and have put together game nights for everyone. You send me 20 devotionals every month and when I passed them out last month, I wasn’t able to give one to everyone that wanted one. If you can please send me an additional 10, it would be greatly appreciated. If you are not, it’s okay, I understand. -S

-------------------
God put it on my heart to send this donation to you. We in the prison system love and appreciate what you do. I pray your ministry stands for generations to come. I know $10.00 isn’t much but it’s coming from my inmate bank. I figured anything would help. God bless. -Z 

------------------

We say "Support What Matters" because we see letters like the ones above every day, as inmates ask for more material to share. You can help supply a prisoner with a year's subscription to "Seeds Of Hope" for just $15. Please contact us at 912-685-2222 and let us know you want to invest in this ministry and the souls of the often-forgotten ones. Your return will be eternal.

A Couple More Letters

I am writing to inform you that my room number in my unit has changed so I can continue to receive the “Seed of Hope.” I have received the Seed but by the time the prison mailroom locates me it’s almost the end of the month. That’s all for that issue and thanks for the Seeds of Hope. They really mean a lot to me. Being in prison isn’t easy but they help me and when I receive mail from y’all I get excited because I don’t feel forgotten. “Remember those in prison as if you were there yourself. Remember also those being mistreated as if you felt their pain in your own bodies.” I truly feel this from you all. Thanks for everything you all provide during my time in prison. My birthday has just passed July 15 and I’m 38 and feeling great during this pandemic. Continue to keep not only me but everyone in prayers because being in prison they have very little concern about us. Once again thanks for the Seeds and your prayers.

Below is an excerpt from a letter from a prisoner whose tithe consists of sending stamps, which are hard to come by for him.

A Gift For Paper Craft!


Look closer at this image... click on it to view full-size! There's more to it than meets the eye... it might look like it is made of wood, but it is made from paper! An artistic and innovative friend of the ministry created this and sent it to us, with the following note... "I thought I would send your ministry one of my paper crafts I do. God blessed me about 10 years ago with the talent to craft things from paper. In turn, I send them to others to bless them. I appreciate the devotionals each month. May God continue to supply the funds to keep spreading His Word. In His Service, -Bobby"
The framework is all paper and the "glass" is a plastic dried peanut container. Isn't that unique?
We appreciate hearing from our "Sower Family Inside," and we appreciate YOU for making it possible to send them our material each month. Each year's subscription is $17, and we couldn't do this without your gift. If you are not giving yet, won't you call now about supplying one or more prisoners with a year's subscription? Call 912-685-2222 and talk to Lynn or Larry about it.

More Requests

A friend of mine gave me the Sowing and Reaping. I’ve read through the articles and found them very interesting. This is something I want to become a part of. Would you please send me the Seeds of Hope and Sowing and Reaping paper and anything else that I can receive for me to get to know my Father? I’m a prostate cancer patient and I’m going through the changes of this deadly disease. I was told by the doctors it’s not curable because it has passed to my leg and leg bones. I’m struggling here every day so please pray for me and keep me in your prayers. I don’t have any money or anything to send. I borrowed a stamp to write to you.  -W

I have been receiving your monthly letters and Seeds of Hope. I am so thankful for them. I do not remember doing any Bible studies with y’all. If you do have any, what would it cost me to receive Bible studies?  I am president of the Holy Ghost Riders Ministry here in prison. I am teaching bikers to turn toward Jesus for their life’s issues. They do not have to be in a biker gang to receive love. Jesus has enough love for all of them. I currently have 125 men who have changed their lives over. I would like to receive your Bible study to help me in my walk and to help others. -C


I appreciate the letters and daily devotions that you send me. When I’m done with them, I send them to my family. They said they like reading them too so thank you and God bless. I have moved so can you send them to my new address? T 

I just wanted to say thank you for sending me the Seeds of Hope every month. I have learned so much by the Seeds of Hope. I thank God for people like your ministries for having the compassion for an innocent man that was wrongfully convicted so I just want to say thank you very much. C 

Larry, Thank you so much for the gift you sent for Christmas. It touched me. I hope you and your family are in the best of health and in spirit. I also want to thank you for taking the time each month to send me the Seeds of Hope booklet. I put it to use each morning. God is good! I enjoy reading the pamphlet as well. Days in prison are hard but when you have the good Lord in your life, it becomes better. I’m living proof. God has kept me strong all through these nine and a half years. You have to play your part though. I try my best to. I have all my life and I am 36 right now. Thank you for the inspiration. May God bless you and your loved ones. Faith, Hope and Love … But the greatest of these is “LOVE.” V 

I want to thank you for sending me another inspirational book “How Good is Good Enough” by Andy Stanley. It amazes me how people can think that by showing the outside world their “good deeds,” they can get into heaven. The Lord wants you to “be humble” and not a braggart. I also enjoy receiving my monthly copy of Seeds of Hope. I am hoping that in early February I will have my surgery to remove the cancerous tumor and make a full recovery.  Thank you for your support and everything Guido Ministries does. R 


I only got four months to go before I get out of here and I’m going to need a place to live and not on the streets. Thank you and God bless you and I love you. My max date is June 2020.  R 

I am currently incarcerated. I have found several of your Seeds of Hope booklets. I pick them up and read them every time I find them. It doesn’t matter that they are out of date. I really enjoy them so I am writing to ask if you could find it in your heart to put me on your mailing list. I have no family on the outside helping me so I would not be able to pay for a subscription. I would like to say thank you in advance if you can do this. If not, I understand and will keep my eyes open for any more booklets I can find. E
