  • A prisoner in IL writes: Hi Bob and Maureen, Happy 2019. I’m super glad that you guys thought right. I did like this 4 lessons and I want more. About the drawing on the Christmas card, I did not do it. But I know somebody who did it and I just did the Bible verses. Please keep sending lessons my way. I still got til 2031 to go home unless Jesus come first. . Thanks for the Christmas card and the names of the other people that wish me Merry Christmas. May God Himself Bless all of you.
