Dear Brother or Sister:
Rahab saved herself and her family by her faith. She went on
to become the great great-grandmother of David and,
eventually, an ancestor of the Messiah. But she never lost
the stigma of her sin. Down through history, she was still
called “Rahab the Harlot.”
Stigma is an issue every convict released from prison faces.
Some are released only to return to their old ways and,
eventually, to prison.
Others find Christ as their Savior while in prison. They
grow in His grace through correspondence courses, chapel
services, dorm Bible studies, and faith-based programs that
reach into the prison to help them. But when you are
released back into society, you will face rejection, often
by the very people who are best equipped to understand that
a sinner can be saved—and changed—by grace.
Philemon Fellowship International exists to help the
prisoner, who is serious about the Lord, find local church
fellowships that will keep him accountable and help him
become a useful citizen and effective Christian. We also
desire to help the church build relationships with prisoners
by providing Bibles and other materials to the prisons.
Would you like P.F.I to help you get connected to a
loving fellowship in your home town?
Please let us know your release date, the city you will
return to and the type of church you like; if you consider
yourself “a faithful and beloved brother” (Colossians 4:9).
Please, also send us any prayer requests you have now.
Brothers and Sisters in the body of Christ will start
praying for you today.
