CHUCK COLSON PRISON MINISTRY

THANK YOU , BETTY, FOR SENDING ME THE INFO ABOUT CHUCK COLSON'S PRISON MINISTRY........I GOOGLED IT, AND CAME UP WITH LOTS OF COMFORTING INFO....YOU ARE SUCH A BLESSING TO ME, TO SEND ME THIS, AND MAKE ME AWARE OF IT, IN A TIME OF NEED..........I HOPE OTHERS THAT READ THIS JOURNAL, WILL CHECK INTO IT.

READING ABOUT THIS, AT THIS PARTICULAR MOMENT IS VERY IMPORTANT...IT TAKES THE STRESS OFF THINGS FOR ME RIGHT NOW...........LATER, WHEN I FEEL UP TO IT, I MAY EVEN TAKE ON A PEN PAL.

I KNOW HOW IMPORTANT MAIL IS FOR THE PRISONER..........I SENT JIMMY HUNDREDS OF LETTERS AND CARDS, WHILE HE WAS AT BAYSIDE PRISON.......AND HE SENT ME THE SAME..........ONCE, THE FELLOWS THAT WORKED IN THE MAIL ROOM, JOKED THAT I WAS GOING TO CLOSE THE MAIL ROOM, WITH THE EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF MAIL I WAS SENDING!

JUST LAST WEEK, I SAID TO JIMMY, "SHOULD I THROW AWAY ALL THE ENVELOPES YOUR LETTERS CAME IN.....I HAVE BOXES FULL, AND HAVE STARTED PUTTING HIS LETTERS INTO AN ALBUM.

JIMMY RESPONDED, "YES, FRAN , THROW THE ENVELOPES AWAY.  DON'T BE LIKE ME, OBSESSIVE ABOUT YOU, AND WANTING TO KEEP EVERTHING ABOUT YOU"...............WELL, THE BOXES OF ENVELOPES ARE STILL HERE, AND I WILL KEEP THEM....BECAUSE I AM OBSESSIVE ABOUT HIM, TOO.

I'M PRETTY SURE HE CAN WRITE ME LETTERS FROM CRAF......AND I'M SURE HIS LETTERS ARE ALREADY ON THEIR WAY......

That website is wonderful and I'm sure will help you be at somewhat of peace. I'm still praying for you and Jimmy.

glad you found some comfort in that ministry, Fran. I want some day to have the time to write to prisoners. I'm writing to a senior lady in a retirement home right now, but one day when I have more time....
