Friday, 12th: Inmate Asgia-Ji H… wrote: “Last year in December, you sent me a fantastic study ‘My New Life in Christ’ and a little booklet ‘A Basic Study of New Testament Scriptures’. I have been using them for myself as a reference to help me as I’m teaching others here in prison. I have seven students currently but with moves, it fluctuates constantly. My case has been reopened based on factual innocence. Once I am exonerated and freed from here, I am going into ministry for the rest of my life to serve my Lord. Most of the people around will be LDS and FLSD. Your studies will be absolutely perfect for them, to guide them into the truth they have been led away from.” (he is in Utah)
