Aaron has been part of Saint Dismas Prison Ministry for 9 years! He's come a long way and has formed connections to our community through being a pen pal. His writing, grammar, spelling etc. have improved a lot. Having someone to write and receiving mail is a big deal. He was encouraged and finished high school while in prison.
People in prison are not allowed to write each other. They form connections and then they are separated. The Department of Corrections moves people around all the time. I check our mailing list before every mailing and update addresses. This last time, I think I had 10 (out of 45) who had been moved. I can't send letters for them, but can send "shout outs", letting them say hello and encourage each other.
Thank you for your support!
