As a Judge for twenty years in the criminal justice system, I’ve sent hundreds of people to prison. Abraham Lincoln once said: “I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.”
And I agree. The scripture says, “Mercy triumphs over judgment!” (James 2:13)
Here is your opportunity to show mercy to a prisoner in a very powerful way. You can do it by investing in a computer for a student inmate. This is a very personal gift - a special gift directly from you! And it is an essential tool for each student to get a bachelor’s degree.
For security reasons, they won’t know your name, nor can I share their name with you at this point. But you can be the one to supply a specially designed computer called a “SecureBook” to one of our 25 student inmates. That student will keep his computer as long as he needs it – even past graduation as he eventually serves others as a mentor or Chaplain's assistant or peer counselor.
I’m excited about these computers because they come loaded with Bible software that gives every student inmate a robust Bible study tool! It’s pretty awesome.
With classes starting on October 14, we need 10 more computers to be paid for at a cost of $634 each. Please give an amount that is meaningful to you - $100, $200, $300 or the full amount. Or if God should lead and provide, you can give more than one computer!
I don’t know what God will have you do but I do know we need to have the money in hand by September 15, so we can place our order to have the computers ready for the start of the term.
Thank you for your partnership in life transformation,
P.S. Don't forget to save the date for our fall fundraiser banquet on November 9. You can RSVP by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
