THE CRY FOR HELP FROM JAIL

My name is David, and I recently gave my life to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I struggle with drugs and alcohol. My addictions have led me to be locked up. I’m in jail now, serving three years and seven months. It seems like everyone in here is in here because of an addiction. Would you please help us? Send us something that will help us to learn how to stop for good! Anything that will help: books, studies, pamphlets, flyers, anything and everything you send me I will share with others. It would make a difference! I’m sure of it. So please, let’s work together to help me and other inmates. Thank you, and please keep us in your prayers. And may God bless you! Keep up the good work!

You just read a real letter from someone incarcerated. We are seeking to provide the help that David and other inmates are crying out for. However, we need your help! Your sponsorship will help us supply inmates with the discipleship tools they need to gain victory over their addictions through Jesus Christ.

Help Change Lives

The Recovery Through God’s Truth Workbooks is a series of four phases in the RUInside curriculum. The workbooks will guide the inmate with step-by-step instructions for developing an eternal relationship with Jesus Christ and equip them to deal with the stresses and pressures of life, both inside and outside of an institution, without returning to their addictions.

We are able to produce and ship the full series to inmates for just $10 per inmate. By sponsoring an inmate, you will provide him/her with the tools to participate in the RUInside Program.

We need your help to bring the RUInside Program to six chapels at Avenal State Prison and two chapels at California Men’s Colony. Inmates and staff at these prisons are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the RUInside curriculum. Approximately 600 sponsorships are needed for Avenal and about 350 sponsorships for California Men’s Colony.

Inmate Testimonials

Inmates experience a complete change.

“I was introduced to the RU Ministry. I started attending at first as a means to get out of my cell, but I started listening to what our leader had to say and I started reading the material she gave me. It was as if God was speaking right to me. Suddenly it all made sense and I decided to give my heart to Jesus.”

Patricia, Inmate

“I have a new-found hope for my life. I look forward to Friday nights and being able to help others like me, who have struggled with addictions. I want them to know that they are loved by God and that he doesn’t want them to suffer. I thank God for bringing RU into my life because I don’t feel hopeless, lost and alone anymore.”

Patsy, Inmate

Professional Testimonials

Professionals note R.U.’s extraordinary impact.

“I have never seen a program transform a facility the way R.U. did. The program not only enlightens the lives of the incarcerated that we administer to but also the way the staff interacts with them. In my twenty years in corrections and law enforcement, I have never seen a program captivate a facility in this manner.”

“I have been working with hurting people since 1962 and I’ve seen a lot of patients coming out of treatment programs. I find that Reformers Unanimous’ recovery rates are much better than other treatment options. Reformer’s faith based approach is beneficial to the recovery of patients, as are the learned cognitive behavioral skills.”
