This is a copy of our support letter for the Saints. Our team has a goal of finding 10 prayer partners for every member of our softball to pray for us as we play softball and minister in prison. We also have a team goal of raising $4,000. If you would didn’t receive a support letter or want to be on our email list, please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dear Friends and Family,
Most of you know what a baseball and softball fanatic I am! I have been blessed to find a ministry where I can combine my love of the game with the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ! This summer I have the opportunity to play slow-pitch softball in several prisons in Illinois with a group called the Saints Prison Ministry (www.saintsprisonministry.org). There are currently teams in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, and Colorado. Our hope is to play this year and to establish the Illinois Branch of the Saints.
During our trips to prisons, we will play 2-4 games against the inmates and preach the gospel between games. We not only have the opportunity to preach to the men on the prison softball team but also to the men in the prison yard. There are usually 100-500 men who will hear us speak between games! Each inmate we encounter will also receive a printed gospel of John and a decision/response card. The response card gives the inmate an opportunity to correspond with a pen-pal, sign up for a correspondence bible study, and receive a birthday card every year!
