Thursday, 11th: “1/23/21 Hello, thank you so much for answering my previous questions. I am growing in my faith. Sadly, it took my evil ways to show me God’s love for me. God never ran from me. I ran from Him. As someone who has suffered the fear of abandonment for many, many years, this is a GREAT feeling to know He will never leave me! It literally brings tears to my eyes every time I think of it. I live in a large room with 72 other inmates. My bunkie is an atheist and says I am stupid to believe in God. He has noticed how much peace I have and has commented about how jealous he is. He is surrounded by misery, fake friends and uses drugs to handle his misery. I try to evangelize him and those of other religions. We have several Muslims here. Any insight on how to handle these issues would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, William S… (sent a bunch of helpful literature on 2/2/21)
