Letter from Parolee (names protected)

Hello Joel and Cindy,

First of all I pray that you and your family are doing well. I miss all of you soo much. I just wanted to let you know that I graduated last Sunday from my CAADAC Certification Program and I am officially interning at Salvation Army Rehabilitation Program as a Drug and Alcohol Counselor. By the grace of God. All praise and glory are His. Gods favor has blessed me abundantly. I am now registering for my second semester at RCC for my AA. Not bad for only being home 6 months. God is Good! I am still praying for my children, God is preparing their path and I believe I dedicated them unto Him they are His children. What is soo awesome is that I am interning at a Christian facility where the Lord is the center of their recovery. I have to intern 255 hours and then I am a Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor. Yay! I miss my sister [still incarcerated at Rainbow] so much! You all are in my prayers.  I am thinking of calling and asking for permission to visit. Please send her my love and blessings. I also pray that [ ] is attending service and let her know I have a seat next to me at church and NA/AA/CR Meetings. My faith is continuing to grow and my love for the Lord is power.

I have so much to share with you, maybe one day we can get together for lunch so you and Cindy can pray for me. Every day on my way to school or Internship I play that CD “For was and is and is to come” and I think back to where I was sitting when you played that video and I feel empowered by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. HE REIGNS! Love in Christ, [ ].

Hello Joel and Cindy,
I pray that all is well with the family and life.  Jesus is so awesome and I am so grateful that he has been with me every step of the way.  I have accomplished so much in this past 10 months and I give Him all the glory and honor and praise.  I am currently working as a Case Manager/Counselor at a drug and alcohol facility.  I was so blessed to be hired on at one of the best companies in this industry.  I work full-time with full benefits and a complete employee packet with perks.  I am still going to school (10units this semester) for my Master’s in family therapy.  I have managed to stay focused with structure and blessing in my life.  My two oldest daughters are pregnant and are blessing me with two more grandchildren.  [   ] continues to be my home fellowship and Pastor continues to bless me.  I miss you all soo much and look forward so that I may come and visit Rainbow Camp with your church.  Joel and Cindy, I want you to know that you two have been such a big part of my life and a positive impact on spiritual walk as well.  You have my phone and please call me whenever we can get together.  If I am at work or school I can’t answer so please leave a message.
Now, as for my bestest bestest friend ever, I miss her so much!  She is in my prayers daily and I know that God is bringing her to a place of restoration and healing as He did me.  Please, let her know that I love her and she will forever be my sister in Christ and I still plan on picking her up and taking her to the airport.  I cannot wait for her journey to begin.  God has so much in store for her as well.  God is AWESOME and every day I still play that song “Who was and is and is to come” and it reminds me of that video you played.  Joel, I do believe that God’s healing came through your prayer shawl from Isreael.  Cindy, I do believe that my freedom in Christ came through your flags and Megans music.  Praise God and God Bless.  I also pray for Marilyn and everyone that ministered to me.  Thank you all so much.
Your sister in Christ,
hello my beautiful sister in Christ.  It is so nice to be adopted and not aborted!  AMEN!  I am always so happy to receive any emails from you.  You are so often in my prayers.  I love helping people at my new job.  I am a counselor/case manager at a treatment facility for women who are alcoholics/addicts.  I pray that God uses me in a mighty way to make an influence in their lives and the lives of their families.  I love our Lord and am so grateful that he never gave up on me even when I did.  As the holidays come up, my thoughts and memories are at Rainbow Camp, a place that saved my life.  I remember worshiping the Lord with all of you and realizing that He is King.  I miss [   ] and pray for her also.  I know God is doing mighty things in all of your lives as well as mine.  God’s favor!!!!  We are His children and He reigns forever!!  I hope to see you again
soon and be blessed by your beautiful spirit and presence.  Please keep in touch and remember I am forever grateful for the prayers and ministering you and your family and our family in Christ did for me…
