July 2021–Encouragers and Insiders of the Month!
This BIRTHDAY Mattered! INSIDER Ms. Jessica, Denver Women’s Correctional
“Thank you so much for the birthday wishes, it was very heart warming and the message that went with it brought tears to my eyes…not bad tears but good ones. I needed that truth to be revealed to me, so I was very grateful for that. Ms. Debbie, I’ve made some bad choices and I’m not proud of that. I just need a second chance to get out and be there for my family. My son is only 17 and he’s out in the world with his little family, his baby boy is due in July and they are out there on their own. I need to be out there to guide him, help him and provide for him. He has done so good, but he’s struggling so much. I’ve made some bad choices and I’m not proud of that. I just need a second chance to get out there and be there for my family. Jeremiah 29:11 says ‘ I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
These QUOTES Matter!
ENCOURAGER Ms. Hazel: 18 assignments since 2018
“I am encouraged more than ever before because this virus is causing us to “call on the name of the Lord Jesus” even more!!! Our faith is being increased because we’re getting to know Him better through “prayer”…talking to Him about our needs and problems, and situations; then “expecting” Him to do it for us…and meet every need on our behalf! Hallelujah!”
INSIDER Mr. Marcus, TX/LA Border
Marcus closes his letters with:

This SURPRISE Matters! DONATION from INSIDER Ms. Candace before release
“Today, I’m so blessed as I sit here writing you and Ms. Karen (Encourager), I’m graduating Therapeutic Community today! And I received your farewell (Mizpah) letter yesterday! I was so wondering where I was going to tithe and I was praying & asking the Lord, to show me, and it’s on my heart to send this to Encouraging Word. I feel so blessed at this time in my life. I couldn’t feel this way without the help of your ministry. I want to thank you very much. I should be out on the 16th of June. I’ll send word. God Bless.”
This THANK YOU Matters! INSIDER Ms. Kimberlee, LaVista
“I just want to say thank you (Ms. Debbie W., Encourager) for being an amazing and great support. I have been accepted to the half-way house, so I leave next week. You were a great encouragement with all the letters and stuff. God Bless You! Always-Kimberlee (written on her personal, hand made card)
This WATERCOLOR Matters to Us!
