Dear Christian Friends,

We are a group of Christians reaching out to the lonely men and women in prison. Most of the inmates contacting us have already accepted Jesus or they are seeking God. All of them are lonely, discouraged, and rejected; in need of a caring friend.

Jesus has a special place in His heart for hurting people and He calls us to minister to their need. In Mathew 25:35-36, Jesus says “I was sick and you visited me; I was in prison and you came to me.”  Then He explains “In as much as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to Me.”  In Luke 5:32-32, Jesus says ” Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.  I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”  Please also read Psalms 107:9-16, Isaiah 42:7, and 2Cor.5:17.

“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

“He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ Mat 25:44-45
