    John, I appreciate receiving your monthly letters via mail. Don and I were with you and Steve to the Holy Land about 5 years ago. Don passed away on October l9, 2010 from prostate cancer with bone metastasis. It surely is lonesome without him, but I know we will be together again in Heaven. He was the Best Friend and Husband anyone would ever want. May the Lord continue to Bless you in Your Life and Ministry. Sincerely, Sandra L. Smith

    John, I talked to you in Shipshawana, Ind. Sat. night and mentioned a song that would be well suited for prison ministry, it was sung by Johnny Cash & written by Billy Joe Shaver,
    “You just can’t beat Jesus Christ” is the title, you can find it on MySpace & else where on the internet.

    • Dave, Thanks for the heads up. It would be a great prison song!
