Favorite Bible Verse: Heb 13:5: Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Hey everyone!
So, my name's Viktoria and I'm, as it is said above from Germany. It isn't very common here in Germany to be a really strong and enthusiastic Christ. Therefore, it's time for the truth! Well, I am not really german, the other way around. My mother language is polish. Now you may understand me. I spend my whole heart and passion for God. As well my talent in music. Every sunday is sacrificed for God.
But now more about my person! I play the piano and guitar, love to read books and good films. If somebody knows me, he'll/she'll say, that I'm a loveable, determined person who always cares for others.
I would love to find somebody to write with, not just emails but also letters! Sharing each other's life, with all it's highs and downs, exciting moments is fantastic.
May God bless you. ( :

Gender: female
Age: 43
Status: not married
When saved: 2004
Country: Philippines

Date: October 21, 2014

Favorite Bible Verse: Romans8:28-all things work together for good for those who love God and who are called according to His purpose

I am Marites, a single parent of six children.

I grew up in a dysfunctional family. I was sexually molested at the early age of 4, on top of being emotionally, verbally, and physically abused. As a result, I became jealous of good relationships. I was envious, covetous, insecure, self-centered, confused, selfish, gossipy, angry, and very bitter. I always thought that the world was so unfair and that I was always the victim.

My mom was a full-time nagger, my dad a 24/7 gambler and part-time womanizer. My mom was always in fight mode, so my dad was always in flight mode. As early as six years old, I was often left to take care of my two siblings. My mom had high expectations of me because I was the eldest, and I had to know how to perform all the household chores aside from caring for the other children. I never had a childhood myself, acting as the mother to my siblings and taking on all that responsibility. I had to think of my siblings’ needs before my own.

I was ten years old when our business went bankrupt. My mom suffered from depression, and my dad left us for another woman. I was forced to work in order to feed my siblings and face all my mom’s creditors. These creditors were enraged, cursing me for the bounced checks that my mom issued; I received many threats on her behalf.I

In school, my parents were always absent from parents’ meetings. I felt neglected and unloved. I tried to excel in academics, but my insecurities prevented me from having good relationships. I seldom smiled, tried to get attention through angry behavior, and wanted everyone to be miserable like me.

Even though I was studying, I was still forced to wake up before 4:00am to go out and work, or else a heated flat iron on my lap would wake me up on my lap, or lashes from a rubber rope would give me stripes all over my skin.

I rebelled by getting pregnant at 17 to escape from the responsibilities passed on to me and to avoid my molestors and my angry, abusive mom. I was forced to get married out of a superstition that staying unmarried would bring bad luck to the family, but I thought marriage would be my escape. I didn’t know it would be worse than I ever thought. I became a battered wife, beaten black and blue everyday by an irresponsible and alcoholic husband. I had nowhere else to go, so I stayed and tried to be strong. My family advised me to avoid having a broken home.

But after five years, I couldn’t take any more. I was hospitalized with almost broken spine and skull, hematoma (bruises) all over my body, and an X mark on my face. I almost lost all my fingers in self-defense, grabbing the knife that my husband had used to destroy my face.

I hid myself from him and lived in fear of being killed. Many guys offered me a good and comfortable life; I became dependent on relationships and jumped from one to another. Then, I gave in to a married man and became his mistress. He was a surgeon and so very able to provide. He was very gentle and took care of me. I thought we really loved each other; he considered me and the four children we had together his 2nd family. I thought everything was okay.

Although I knew it was immoral to become a mistress, I felt my actions were justified because my family was getting financial help. I believed that if I didn’t ask for counsel from anyone — who cared? Everyone makes mistakes.

I never prayed; I knew God as judgmental and perfectionist. He would just punish me for my sin and condemn me to hell. Why should I pray if it will just go to the trash? It was a waste of time and effort for me. I expected to just pray on my deathbed and confess to a priest with my last breath.

I used material things to pretend I was happy, but deep in myself, I was screaming for help. I tried everything to overcome my emptiness: going to casinos and bars, shopping, and engaging in sex and pornography. I also went to a psychiatrist because I suffered from depression.

But God loves me so much; he heard my silent cry. I heard the gospel in a moment of boredom and found myself thirsting for more. I attended Christian worship services and then accepted Christ as my Lord and Saviour.

The problems did not end right there and then, though. I felt convicted and suddenly had the fear of death. It gave me sleepless nights. I became dependent on sleeping pills to buy just three hours of sleep.

And, I couldn’t give up my comfortable life. My greatest fear was to become poor again. I could afford to live simply, but I couldn’t compromise my four kids’ future. My two older children from my previous relationship came back to me, bringing the total to six kids.

One night, I had an anxiety attack. I couldn’t breathe. I knew I was dying. With my last breath, I cried out to God and begged for another chance to live. In return, I would straighten up my life.

God is good and listened to my prayer. I was so afraid and confused; I didn’t know how to start fulfilling my promise. God then talked to me by showing two roads in a dream. I had to choose. The first road was very pleasing to the eyes and filled with flowers. The second road was so dark. But there, Jesus would walk with me and uphold me each time I fell.

I talked to the surgeon and tried to end the relationship. I asked him to support the kids and set me free, but he refused because, he said, we were his second family. On God’s prompting, I called his wife, and he became extremely angry with me. He believed I had replaced him with another man and threatened to take our 4 kids from me. I was jobless then (2004) and had a four-month-old baby and children aged three, five, six, 12, and 14. I was financially incapable of raising them all. I cried and asked God to help me have the custody of my children; I would lose my mind if they would be taken from me.

I was already attending CCF then, and God spoke to me through Jeremiah 33:3 — “Call unto Me and I will answer and I will show you great and mighty things you do not know.”

One day, the surgeon and his wife visited the four younger kids and brought some stuff that they needed. I thought everything would go smoothly. On the contrary, it resulted in a heated argument and then violence. I was brutally battered in front of my five-year-old son. I was slapped, had my head hit against the wall, and almost choked me to death. The wife boxed, kicked, and poked my head. Thank God I was able to cry for help.

The couple escaped and filed a case against me to protect their reputation. They claimed I beat them both. I never thought of filing a case against them and just reported the incident to the police. God led me all throughout the process, from the police to the hospital, securing all the evidence I needed if anything happened.

It is not easy to follow Jesus. I asked God, “Why did You allow them to hurt me, when all I want is to follow your command to stop being a mistress?” I really couldn’t understand.

My five-year-old son blamed himself for being so small and unable to help me during the attack. My kids suddenly stopped talking and were all traumatized by the fear of losing their dad and the comfortable life they were used to.

At CCF, I learned to pray and read the bible. I drew my strength from the Scripture each time I felt low. I learned to sing praises all the time, even when we had nothing to eat. God said that life is more important than the food we eat and clothes we wear. I finished reading the entire bible in less than 6 months. I discovered the mighty works of God and that He is so forgiving, merciful, loving, and faithful to His promises. I applied the Word to my life.

Then, I tested God’s pomise in Malachi 3:10-12. He promised to return all my tithes and offerings pressed down, shaken together, and running over, and he would open the windows of heaven and bless my health, work, and home. People would call me blessed.

I gave my tithes from everything I received. I heard from Pastor Joby Soriano the story of a farmer crying while planting his very last seeds, trusting God for the outcome. I had my last Php 1,000 with me at the time and put it in the tithe box. That meant my kids would have nothing to eat. But I planted it as a seed. I said to myself, “If I keep the ₱1000 in my wallet, it is not enough, even for a week. But I will plant this and trust God to provide for our needs.”

God’s promise is true. He opens the windows of heaven. If I prayed for milk for my baby, three months’ supply of milk for my six kids will arrive, specially delivered by a stranger. I even had some to share with the needy. I was jobless for two years, and God provided for me and for my kids. I never begged nor asked from anyone else. I just applied Philippians 4:6-7; I told God all my needs through prayer and thanked Him for His answers.

There was a time when four of the kids got sick almost every week. I begged for a bottle of medicine from their father, but he refused to help. I cried to God and said, “I know You can change his heart, but you hardened it. Although it’s so painful, I will still thank and praise You because I love You.” Then, my 4 kids were miraculuously healed! I realized that God was teaching me a very powerful prayer: 1 Thessalonians 5:18 — “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

God burdened me to give love to street children through the Backstreet Kids ministry. I believe teaching them about God’s love and loving them will help prevent them from becoming criminals someday. God also taught me to be compassionate and called me to become a caregiver for the sick. I volunteered in a hospital and shared the gospel at the same time. I also used to criticize men in uniform and call them names. God led me to participate in and volunteer for the first batch of the Philippine National Police – Purpose-Driven Life ministry. God opened my eyes and helped me to see that these men and women risked their lives for our safety in exchange for a small salary and few benefits. So now, I look at them with compassion and respect.

I was happy but not completely joyful. I still needed some healing.

Court proceedings troubled me. I shook in fear and couldn’t eat. The surgeon and his wife wanted my downfall. The court had decided in my favor before; now the couple was using their money and connections to reverse the decision. I trusted God to be my defender and lawyer. The case they filed against me was dismissed, but the cases filed by the police continued (the doctor was charged with violence against women and children. His wife was charged with physical injury). I could not afford to hire a good lawyer, so I was advised to dismiss the case in exchange for support for my kids. God told me to give up my rights, forgive them, and fully trust Him, so I obeyed.

I realized that if God had not allowed the couple to physically attack me, there would be no record of their violence, and I could have lost custody of the kids. Not only did God answer my prayer to keep my kids, but he also provided for them. The couple would be obliged to give support in exchange for the dismissal of the criminal cases.

God’s thoughts and ways are different from ours. The court order was delayed for two years because the couple had taken the documents. I kept quiet and handed it all to God. We were driven away from the house the surgeon had bought for his four kids with me. People advised me to fight for my kids’ rights and stay put in the house. But God said, “Let go and trust Me,” and I obeyed.

In 2006, I joined a D-Group, and soon, many people were praying for me and the kids. God blessed me w/ a good job. I learned many things about His faithfulness and how to be a good mother. My kids recovered from the trauma, by the grace of God, and with the help of Sunday school teachers who patiently and lovingly taught them about their loving Heavenly Father. My kids are now talking again and excelling in school. (God bless you, Sunday school teachers!)

I thought a tall and handsome guy would be the answer to my prayers, and I planned to remarry. But God said, “No,” so I obeyed. God himself provided for me and comforted me each time I longed for someone. God revealed Himself to me as the best Husband and Father of my fatherless children.

God said to me, “You cannot give what you don’t have,” and led me to join the Glorious Hope program. I knew there was something in me that needed healing and recovery. The program helped me to see my defects and strengths. All my life, I thought I was a victim. Now, I had learned to forgive and accept my past, not with bitterness, but with a thankful heart, allowing God to heal me. I prayed to God to make a way for me to be able to ask for forgiveness from the couple I had harmed by being a mistress.

But then, I was framed. The dismissed case had been reopened; the couple still wanted to reverse the court’s decision. Still, God is so good. I was able to attend the hearing and took the opportunity to humbly ask the couple for forgiveness. I was mocked, humiliated and unforgiven. But God covered me w/ His loving arms, comforted me, and kept me still; I didn’t fight back. By the grace of God, I was free from the curse of unforgiveness. I did my part; the battle was the Lord’s. Fear left me; I fully trusted God to defend me against all their plans to hurt me and my children. I simply chose to trust God and forgive.

Once again, the case was dismissed! And the couple has been compelled to give the kids financial support.

Now, I am happy and content serving God with pure joy. God’s plan and timing is perfect. I have no regrets. I thank God for those hardships. Those trials made me strong and fully dependent on God.He is using me now to encourage the weak and the hurting. I share the gospel to the beggars,street children and to every person and situation. i want people to experience the good life that God offers if we have the right relationship with Him. I am being used by God to do counselling/lifecoaching people to recover from their past hurts and pains through the comfort and healing that Christ Jesus has done for me. i continue my studies to equip myself in leading people to Christlikeness. i currently lead encouragement groups composed of singleparents and singlewomen and equipping the saints in making committed followers of Jesus.
God is giving me a burden to build a house of refuge for the homeless and lead them to have a grateful heart for Jesus. to encourage them that there are many things we have to thank God for. i believe that if God ordains, He sustains.

please pray with me that i will be faithful to run the race and continue the fire of serving Him for His glory alone. He is so faithful to His promises — he held me up each time I fell, just as he had promised in my dream — and His word shall stand forever.

I am still a work in progress and need a lot of prayers. My prayer is for God to use me, lead me, and guide me where to go and what to say. I pray that I can glorify God and do what he wants, that even after my death, I will never stop glorifying His name.

God is so good all the time! He revealed Himself to me as my provider, husband, Father of my fatherless, healer, defender, lawyer, peace, refuge, rock, strength, and comforter. He is my everything!

Truly, as Romans 8:28 says, “All things work together for the good of those who love God and who are called according to His purpose.
all the glory be to our awesome God!

photo Name: Cassie
Gender: female
Age: 22
Status: not married
Birthday: September 10
When saved: yes she was
Country: United States

Date: October 17, 2014

Cassie has been transferred to a different facility to finish serving out her sentence. She made me promise to post her new address on this site because she has recvd several letters from people around the world that saw this ad. To everyone that has written her, thank you so much, it meant the world to her to get these letters. Anything that can help put maybe a little smile on her face makes me happy as well as so appreciative. The good news is I will at least be able to visit her in this new facility, the previous one, the ladies in jail weren't allowed to have visitors except once every few months. I was able to see Cassie only twice in the last seven months. I know everything happens for a reason but sometimes it seems to be a little more than I can bear. Just when I start thinking that God will send some sort of sign that he is with and guiding Cassie and I make it thru the day. Cassie did tell me that before she left the last jail, she was teaching a bible study class once a week to several of the other ladies with her. When she told me that I was well surprised and then thought I wonder if this is Gods plan for Cassie to preach, no matter what ensues I am so proud of her. I think all the ladies that I saw my two visits were all feeling not that good about themselves because of the substandard way inmates are treated. I have learned that it is so important to treat all people with equal respect and especially if they have an addiction problem. I will quit rambling and post Cassies new address and thank you again for taking time from your life to brighten Cassies. I have been so amazed but the kindness of so many strangers during this time.
as of October 18 2014 Cassies new address is
Bossier Maximum Security Facility
Cassie Cumpton #70637 A202
2985 Old Plain Dealing Rd
Plain Dealing, LA 71064

I am posting this for my daughter who is currently in jail for drug use. Cassie was baptized two years ago in June. Two weeks after that her life started to change dramatically. I don't think she was mentally prepared for the devil trying to get her back and away from God. She started using drugs and was arrested for possession. When the devil is at work he is very conniving and for a new Christian it was extremely hard for her. She has never given up her faith or belief but she ended up scared of serving time and ran. She was rearrested two months ago and is in local jail. I am single mom of two grown daughters and that's the extent of our family, I am the only one who is writing her and she needs other Christians to reach out and write to her. She has already made trustee in jail and is very sincere,caring and kind person but she doesn't think a lot of herself (Devil still is trying his best) When I am able to talk with her on the phone and she tells me she got my letter she always thanks me for writing her and tells me that is what she lives for in jail. She keeps asking about her "Friends" and if I had told them the address to write. I think she is learning a very adult lesson in true friends are very hard to find. Cassie is sober now after two years and is relearning to deal with life and her emotions without chemicals. Any moral support in the form of letters would do so much to help her and positive people and positive influences is what she so needs in her life. Cassie probably is going to have to spend either one or two years in jail and that breaks my heart but she is dealing with it very well and keeps telling me this is Gods plan for her. If you can please take the time and write to Cassie and be a reinforcement for her Christian beliefs. I know your letters will bring a smile to her face and as her mother I would be so greatful. Her address is
Webster Parish Jail
Cassie Compton
410 Main St

Favorite Bible Verse: James 1:16-18

Hello to you. My name is Troy and this is my first attempt at seeking a pen-pal. I am serving a very long sentence and am 2200 miles from home. I am only in contact with one sister and one Christian friend. I spend my days reading Scripture, seeking my purpose in life, exercising, and listening to music. I just finished writing a prison cookbook with 207 recipes. I am in the process of having this published. God has moved many mountains and helped me to accomplish many things over these last 4 years. I am seeking a pen-pal that loves God and self. I would like to establish a friendship with someone that can help me smile and remind me that I do exist. The hardest part of doing this time is feeling as though I've been forgotten. Your letters will be a huge help to me and my walk with Christ. I will be honest and answer all questions and letters. Thank you for reading my ad. In closing, I'm wishing you God's best.

Date: October 23, 2014

My name is "Lenny", and I Presently incarcerated, but I should find my way to freedom by the end of 2015. I am very interested in meeting new people and will respond to almost anyone. But my most enthusiastic responses would be to women, especially if they are from the Philippines, Thailand, or some other Asian country.

I like music, photography, and I have begun writing a book/screenplay. But most of all I love art. More than anything I am hoping to meet women who has graduated from an art school, but rather someone who has a little bit of natural talent, who loves to draw. (Or paint) At the very least I am hoping to meet positive people with a creative side. I have barely scratched the surface on the things I want to learn and do artistically, I would love to meet someone who wants to learn as well. If this is you, then write to me at: Leonard Orcutt; P.O. Box 43, MA; 02056 U.S.A.
