Books Last Forever in Prison

October 7, 2022

Here’s a fragment of a letter from a prisoner who came across “An Anchor for the Soul.” He grew up on a farm near a small town with only 3 stop lights. Somehow he got on drugs and now is in jail waiting to go to prison.

This letter is significant because he sent it to the church in Oak Park. That means he read a copy of Anchor printed no later than 2003. We know that because every edition after 2003 contains the KBM address. The letter itself is touching, but it also reminds us that “books last forever” in prison.

Pray for this man and for others like him. Prison walls can’t keep out the Holy Spirit. We’re glad to be a small part of the big thing God is doing in prisons across America. Your generous giving and your prayers make this ministry possible.
