Dear Mama-Jo, . . . I like laying bricks, it's relaxing. And when I get done with the class I'll be certified in masonry . . . . I will never stop writing or praying for you and your family. Honestly, I hope to one day bring my momma and my son to meet you and hopefully attend a service at your church if y'all will have me there. You have had truly one of the most positive effects on my life and you've almost been with me since day one. What you call a ministry has become a life preserver with a line tied to it for me. I wrote back to Ian . . . . How is Sibley doing? If you happen to see him wish him the best . . . . Have you heard from Joseph?-- Sorry this is so late, Aaron
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!
