a letter from Brooks Co. Jail, 2017
Mr. Ken, you and your staff have really and truly been a blessing for me. I’ve come from a rough background, and sometimes I feel like I’m the black sheep of my family, but getting back in – tuned with God’s Word I feel amazing. Truth be told yeah I still get angered about certian things, but I don’t let it control me. I pray, ask for forgiveness and Say “Thank you Lord” repeating it over and over.
I’m currently here in jail on a violation of probation for not reporting, but really how I see it God brought me here to help me to stop violating myself. I had got to the point where I didn’t care about myself just wanted to get $ and get some “weed” … but by the grace of God my mind has been renewed. I think about what Jesus had already done for me and pray for forgiveness and ask him to keep me mentally strong as he has emotionally and physically.
Lord’s will soon I will hear something from my probation officer soon but Mr. Ken I wanna request a prayer for my loved ones — …. …. … … … … … because I love them dearly and I only hope the best for them. I’m gonna continue with these studies even after I’m out so everytime I complete be looking forward to a letter but God bless you and the whole ECS. I love yall goodnight.
your brother in Christ

Mr. K. G.,
Thank you for the giant print reference Bible. Its print size, cross references and concordance makes it a very reliable hard to beat Bible. Thank you so very much.
In the last set of study answer sheets, you asked if I had gotten in touch with my victim’s daughter since she’d forgiven me for taking her father’s life. Yes, I have. It took a while, but my sister was able to find the daughter’s address. I let her know that her finding peace had been in my prayers for years. I thanked her for her forgiveness, which I had truly never expected nor felt I deserved. I also congratulated her on her making a family of her own and wished her the best that she truly does deserve. There has been no further correspondence between us, which is understandable, but I feel that she and I have made peace with each other because the Lord saw fit that we should. I truly appreciate your concern, comments, and questions.
God bless and keep you and your ministry safe and well. Thank you for allowing me to participate in it.
In Christian Faith,
