I have only been associated with PMA for relatively short period of time. During that time as I help correct the correspondence courses completed by the men and women in prison I have been blessed. I have been blessed in 2 ways one in knowing that I am doing God's work here on earth and secondly by seeing the growth of these men and women in prison. And as I write short personal notes to them I am again blessed by knowing that when they receive it they will again be blessed. It is my hope that as people read these comments they will also be convicted to want to support PMA's work in the prisons. It is my hope that as Christ works in the hearts of these men and women to transform from their former selves into a new creation in Christ, and as some of them will be going back into our society , that they will not be tempted to repeat what got them in prison originally.

When I became an instructor for the Prison Mission I didn't expect the blessings that followed. As I read each lesson, sometimes with heartfelt comments or questions attached, my heart goes out to these inmates who have found peace and hope through Christ. Sometimes they don't feel deserving. I answer that none of us are. Others want to shout for joy with their newly found faith and the new outlook on life. One thing in common is that they are all so grateful for the Prison Mission Association because they know that someone cares about them and their future. Sometimes I will request the appropriate bible be sent that they might better understand. I am blessed when I see God working in the hearts and minds of those who were once lost. Thank you for being God's servants.
