Who We Are
Prison Letters has been operational since 1990. We are a correspondence Ministry and have a newsletter which we send to all who request it. We take stories, poems, testimonies and artwork from inmates to compile our newsletter and also put the inmates work in tract form. We also give Hope through Jesus Christ to those incarcerated and their families.
Our Vision is to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ reach each inmate. When incarcerated you need the connection to the outside world and through letters and liturature we build a bridge between the free world and the inmate.
We also are looking to a brighter future where we can reach more inmates with a card, letter and a smile.
Types Of Activity
We have volunteers who faithfully write to inmates. We send cards on special occasions and also send to the families of those on Death Row and Lifers a small gift. Artwork that we obtain from inmates goes to make keychains, plaques and is sent to family members.
We Minister in jails and prisons only through correspondence except in special cases.
Our magazine (newsletter)Our Newsletter is free. We do accept donations of stamps, paper and monetary to help with the distribution. Our Newsletter goes out 4 times a year and consists of 4-5 pages. It consists of articles, artwork, information lists, questions & answers, poetry and a devotional. Most done by inmates themselves.
Books we have publishedWe are in the process of putting our first Poetry Book together. Any inmate can send poetry to be used in this book. We accept only poems that will uplift or tell of life in prison. We base everything we do on the Word of God.
