Sunday, 27th: “I just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving Day to you all at Bible Studies By Mail. Thank you for all the hard work you do for us who are incarcerated.

Monday, 28th: “I just wanted to thank you for your prayers. All I did was ask for your prayers and you proved to me that Christ was working through you. I didn’t give you my family history yet, but by the grace of God, you mailed me study booklets that would help me relay the info to my brother who is dealing with addiction issues. So, thanks from the bottom of my heart. Love, Priscilla P…” (She began studying on 9/28/2022.)

Wednesday, 30th: “Dear BSBM, I’m not sure how I got placed on your mailing list, but I’m very pleased all the same. I have recently returned to the fold. Jesus is in my heart as my Lord and Savior. I look forward to further studies to help me grow in my relationship with Christ as well as have a greater understanding of God’s plan. I would request prayer for my wife Julie K…, who is in this facility also, unjustly accused of accessory to a crime she had nothing to do with. Please help me pray she doesn’t pay for mine. All my gratitude, David L…” (Fellow inmate, Eugene C…, wrote and asked us to mail David studies on 11/3/2022.)

Pray David submits himself to God’s will day by day; pray he requests Bible studies for Julie too.

Thursday, 1st: “I signed up to receive your studies about six years ago. (Actually, 4 years and 4 months ago.) I can’t remember how much I completed. I was renting a room in a house and I had earned some certificates. I took ill with double pneumonia and Covid-19. Nobody thought I was going to live because they lost me in the ambulance. I was in ICU for 3 weeks. I only know this because my doctor told me. When I was hospitalized, the house I was renting a room in caught on fire and I lost everything. I would love to start your studies all over again! Patricia Z…” (She restarted on 11/21/2022.)

Thank you, Jose A…” (Sent on 11.23.2022) Praise God“Just as the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me.” (John 6:57)!
