Here are some comments we received from people that are taking the correspondence courses:

  • A note from a female Asian prisoner in Texas: Dear Familynet. First, I wanted to thank you for providing me this lesson and all the course lessons I’ve been study. I’ve learn so much from all of this. I try in the best of my ability to use all of what I learn to practice on my daily walk with our Lord Jesus Christ. I’ve peace with my incarcerated because God is my helper, he has been my blessing and He has shown me that he loves me so so much. That he sent his only Son to die for my sins, so that I can receive forgiven. I am thankful for my circumstance because in this trial of my life, this has bring me through Christ and this is the best thing that happened to me. God has reveal himself to me in so so many ways, and He is an awesome God, always good to those who fear him, trust in him. And I’ve learn that I can do nothing apart from Christ John 15:5. I can do all things through him who gives me strength. Phil 4:13. My priority is put God first in my life because again I’ve learn that God is in control of everything in this world and that includes me. I believe that God has a perfect plan for my life and I am ready to do whatever he want me to. I’ve choose to walk b faith! My hope and future is in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is my God, in who I trust. Again, thank you so much for allowing me to participate on this Bible course. May God blessing be with your ministry and you and your family. In God’s hand, in His love. Respectfully
