Dear UPMI
I happened to see your book "What the Bible Says" I find this as an excellent tool for evangelism in India. 
Would you please allow us to translate this book into some Indian languages? Can you please fund us to print this in India languages and evangelize India. 
I am a Pastor from India and our ministry is known as Voiceofgospelministry.org. We are a church planting and training ministry. 
Look forward to hear from you. We will do the translation work free
Waiting to hear form you

Shawn

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,

Shawn

Dear Friend,

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.

Forever Thankful,

Leonard – Carlisle, IN

Dear Family,

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!

A Son,

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.

Thank You,

Charles – Paducah, KY

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!

Sincerely,

Pablo – Beeville, TX

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.

Dear Prison Ministries,

I am writing to thank you for the books. I am very grateful that your ministry is able to help some of us who are in prison. There are some people who just don’t or won’t help people in prison. I just want to thank you for being there for me and others. So once again I thank you. I will keep you in my prayers and hope that you will do the same for all of us who are down but not out with the love of people like you.

In Christ Love,

Kevin

Dear UPMI,
My name is Gonzalo. I have come across your book The Desire of Ages and am still reading it. It is one of the greatest books I've read so far and I will recommend this book to anybody. I believe that God has spoke to me through this book and it makes the bible so much easier to understand. Thank you.

Your brother in Christ,

Richard Bland Retires

Dear Friends of UPMI,

After much prayer and reflection, Richard Bland, UPMI founder is announcing his retirement after thirty-three years of service. Richard will continue to support the mission by occasionally meeting with prisons, churches, organizations and other groups. The dedicated UPMI Team and Board of Directors are happy to step in and continue this powerful work and look forward to the opportunities, challenges and blessings before us!

We are happy to announce our newly appointed Prison Ministry Director and Chaplain, Antonio “Tony” Hall who has been an integral part of UPMI for over thirty years. Tony and the UPMI Team will be available to meet with schools, churches and prison ministry groups to provide training, workshops and seminars.

The vision Richard held for UPMI at its humble beginnings in 1980 has largely been fulfilled and over seventy million Bibles, Bible lessons and spiritual literature have been distributed free of charge to prisoners throughout the world. The UPMI World Headquarters is located in Verbena, Alabama. This campus holds our media center, offices, warehouse and nine volunteer housing units. New programs and projects, many of them designed to provide training for ex-offenders are daily touching the lives of those within our communities while providing effective witnessing tools for those interested in developing satellite ministry groups within their churches and organizations. A few of our projects such as the Adopt-a-Prison/Prisoner (www.upmi.org) and Verbena Hills Farm (www.verbenahillsfarm.com) are reaching not only into prisons, but also within our communities with Christ-centered teaching and healthy living outreach programs. In addition, our Miracle Broadcasting Media Center is another avenue that is available to churches and organizations seeking to present the Gospel message through radio, television, CD or DVD.

We pray for a blessed retirement and express our heartfelt gratitude for Richard’s service and sacrifice. Richard is—and will remain—a strong promoter of UPMI. His belief that every man, woman and child must receive the Gospel message has created a legacy that will reverberate throughout the world for years to come. All love offerings given as an honorarium on behalf of Richard will be used to further this gospel outreach.

We praise God for His tremendous blessings. As the result of the extraordinary generosity of our faith and prayer partners, UPMI is debt free, allowing us to fully focus on sharing the Word of God throughout the world.

We thank you very much for your kindness and partnership throughout 2014.

May the Lord continue to richly bless you as we co-labor together in His vineyard for His soon coming!

In His Service,

UPMI Team and Board of Directors
