My name is Chaplain Karen Hale and I am the Administrative Chaplain here at Maryland Correctional Institution for Women.

Grateful for your Generosity,

100 Spanish "Bible Questions Answered" were shipped to Chaplain Ramos, please read letter below:
"I've been using the English "What the Bible Says" and giving Bible studies to the prisoners (up to sometimes 40 inmates in a class), but I have run out of Spanish "Bible Questions Answered" booklets. Is it possible to please send me some in Spanish? These books are a great blessing. I love these books because they give you the whole Bible truth and the inmates are enjoying them.
Thank you so very much and may God continue to bless your ministry for what you are doing."
God bless, Chaplain Ramos, Yuma, Arizona.
"I am currently at a work release program at Turley Correctional Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We are Christians, some of us new, and would like to have some of these books sent to us. Not all of us have jobs, and as for myself, I only work 3 days a week. Half of that goes to TRC. Then 1/4 goes to fines and savings, then the rest is for food and transportation. So any of these books you would like us to have, we would greatly appreciate having them mailed to us."

Dear Friends at U.P.M.I.,
My name is Shawn. Along life’s’ road, I made some bad choices that landed me in prison. I had lost all hope… until a friend told me about the one almighty, “Christ Jesus”, who would forgive me and had died for me and all sinners.
About a month ago, I got your booklets, “Bible questions Answered and Keys to Happiness.” I want to tell you how much a blessing they are and how much they have helped me on my spiritual journey. I have been learning more and more every day. Could you please send me the books “Bible Answers and God Still Answers Prayer.”
Yours in Christ,
I have a copy of “Prophets and Kings” that I am currently reading and I also have a copy of “Desire of Ages” which I have read. I must say the light I received was totally transforming. I believe that Mrs. White was truly a gift and prophet of God. I am so grateful for you and her! My prayers go out for you and may God bless you and your work.

I thank you all so much for helping me out by sending me material that enables me to understand the Lord Jesus Christ better. All of you encourage me to do what is right so I can get back to my family. If ever you doubted whether you were helping anyone, know that you are helping me.
My birthday was last year and I just turned Fourteen (14). I have been locked up for sixteen (16) months. I want you to know I am truly trying to live right and everyone of you inspire me to go forward. Thank you for your Love!

Dear Carolyn and Richard,
A person that was getting out left me the book “Bible Answers” and I am now on page 501, the chapter titled “Perfection of Character.” This is an awesome book! I read it every night before I go to sleep. The Bible is difficult to understand, but this book breaks things down where I can understand it. I’ve learned things about God and the church I did not know. To sum it up, it has given me a new outlook on life. It has got me to really thinking about life and I am finding new meaning in it. I was raised with a good religious background, but this book has really opened my eyes.
Our Prayers are with you and may God Bless.

Dear Brothers in Christ,
First of all, I want to thank you and thank God for providing me with the Bible course “What The Bible Says.” I found it very fulfilling and rewarding. It really answered many questions that I had and the literature that I also received along with the course was a blessing.
Thank you and May the Lord keep blessing this ministry through you!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
First, I have an ear infection and you don’t get good medical attention here. However, I sit for hours at a time doing my studies and it seems to make my ear stop hurting. Secondly, I appreciate your wide range of Bible books for scriptures. In fact, I have reacquainted myself with many books I had forgotten about in the Old Testament. I simply did not read that as much as I read the New Testament. Also, the study as a whole was very informative. I have one request. Can you please return my study so that I may use them for future reference? There are many things in there I did not know and they were in the Bible all the time. This study has made me aware of my need to read my Bible more each day. Even if I don’t know all the cross references and similar scriptures, there is so much to be learned by reading it each day. For that I thank you, but mostly I thank God that He used these studies to open my eyes to a lot of things. God loves me so much. He has taken such good care of me in here and He is here with me each day giving me hope and most of all He gives me comfort. As unworthy as I am, that makes every little thing He does for me that more special. I am incapable of loving Him the way He deserves to be loved, but I tell Him every day how much I love Him with all my HEART. He is my father and I am His child and that’s all that matters.
Again, I thank you for the love.
Charles – Dallas, TX
