“I recall one day, after years of incarceration, filling out a form and thinking the date I had just written on it seemed familiar for some reason. Then, it hit me. It was my birthday.” –Robert Souza
Both Katie and Robert recall how, when facing their long sentences, time became a test of endurance. Birthdays and holidays lost all significance. Mail call was special, when there was something it in for them. KSM receives hundreds of letters from inmates every month and we attempt to answer every one because we know how important it is to recognize them. Many inmates are active Partners for the ministry and give tithes and offerings, usually in postage stamps. Inmates send us artwork and stories and teachings they author. We have a group called, “Prison Prayer Warrior Team” whose members have dedicated themselves to praying and interceding for KSM. Once a quarter, we send them prayer directives. To our Inmate Partners and Prayer Team, we send a newsletter, with updates for the ministry and a short teaching by Katie. And, of course, we ship hundreds of free copies of “The Captivity Series; The Key to Your Expected End” every month.
