Hi Pamela. I REALLY enjoyed your talk when you came to visit Pulaski State Prison, (12-21-18). Your testimony was awesome! God has been so good to you. I love to hear praise reports. Thank you for the prayer sheets and daily affirmation sheets. They really help. What else do you do to help out inmates in need? I heard you say you send packages. Let me know. Please thank your entire team for the beautiful Christmas card. I just got it tonight. When you shared your testimony, I could identify with everything you said because I've been there, done that, and got the T-shirt to prove it!! :-) I'm just glad that you came into your right state of mind because it all starts with the renewing of our minds in order to change. I thank God that your life lessons made you stronger. I pray that you stay in God's will for your life. Please email me back when you have an opportunity. Be blessed as well as a blessing. -Joyce
Good evening Pamela! I was super excited when I saw your name pop up on my JPAY account today. It was such a pleasure to meet you the other day, (12-21-18). What was so amazing to me is the love you have for God. I absolutely adore you!! And I pray that we can get to know each other and become close sister's in Christ. I see myself being in your shoes one day. And maybe you can help guide me there. Thank you again for the blessing of your testimony. I cannot believe that you have been through as much as you have been through. I commend you on your strength and I know without God you would not be where you are today. So, all glory and praise to Him. I am so proud of you. and I thank God that we have been able to cross paths. God bless you! - Chastity
Thank you for remembering those of us still behind these walls. It really uplifts my spirit to see you and hear your testimony. God's grace upon your life asserts to the keeping power of God though a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. You do not look like what you have been through. You give me hope of making it when I get out, but right now, I am trying to do as you challenged us in your message, to make good of my time. I am reading my Bible every day, and praying but I was doing that for the past 8 years. Yet, now, it is more meaningful and I can tell a difference because the Lord has cleansed my heart. The change of heart has made me different inside and out. I used to avoid people to avoid getting hurt, now I enjoy fellowshipping with other believers. I used to talk a lot and complain, but now I listen more and have gratitude. Anyways, just wanted to see if this worked. God bless you!!! -Arteria
Pamela, I was so very thrilled to see you and it was hard to obey the instructions of the law, and leave accordingly, all the while, sharing you with others in need of a supportive vessel. I am most happy that you received your birthday gift and loved your banner and matching card. You have been present for me when family had fallen off, and or, went by the wayside, and I will always cherish your goodness in my heart. All you do for me inspires me to pass on goodwill to another straight from the heart. I see the light and realize only today that the Lord truly wants me to be closest with Him who is able to save me from myself, the world, and attack. I am already excited about seeing you on the 18th next month and will be there with bells on. The only way I want be present is that the Lord bless me with a release date, and or, transfer me to a women’s work release center. I love you so very much my beautiful sister and await the day you can pick me up from prison. Very truly yours, — Melissa
Hello Mrs. Pamela,
How are you? I pray all is well. Thank you for the Christmas card. Mrs.Vickie mentioned to me that you may have known someone who is a Housing Coordinator that may can help me find a place to parole out to. I am a repeat offender, and I want to do whatever it takes to stay out of prison. I am trying to do what’s right and seek help. I know if I return to my old address, I will eventually turn back to my old lifestyle and that is what I want to change the most. God has opened my eyes with this sentence and I really want to change. I need help, guidance, with true Christian friends that are willing to help me get on the right track. My counselor said I need to submit an address so she can send it to the Parole Board ASAP, but we first have to find a place to accept me in their program. My 30 day's is about up Jan 10th. Let me know what you can find out, thank you.....LOVE YOU! - Tammy
Hi, My name is Stephanie and this is my story.
Two years ago me and my family relocated from Albany, GA to Atlanta, Ga. In the midst of our journey we became stranded in a drug infested hotel room with no way out. One day we were just trying to feed our family and get through the day, when we were BLESSED. No I'm not talking about with monetary value, but with the presence of GOD. My husband was in Denny’s and began to have a verbal altercation with the manager about our food and money, and that is when Mrs. Pamela, who was just a customer herself at the time, stepped in and assisted with the facilitating of the conversation that ended on a successful note, along with her helping us out...
The thing is that, that day not only were we able to resolve such a minor issue, but we also gained a friend for life.
After meeting Mrs. Pamela, she got my whole family out of the hotel room, gave us make-overs, clothes, food, furniture and most importantly she gave us unconditional love with no judgement. She saved our lives. She would tell us that we were going to reach back and help other families that were going through the same things we were. I couldn’t ever see that, but I felt I wanted to do something to help others someday.
We eventually were able to get jobs, a car, and a apartment, that she helped furnish, and became stable. Everything was going so well, but unbeknownst to me, my journey was really just beginning. After being stable for almost a year, we became homeless again! The questions being asked now are, "How & Why?
Things actually became very complicated, now as I am reminiscing about it. I had just left for maternity leave from mine and was due to deliver in the next three months. My husband was let go from his job, due to a lot of complications with the baby in the hospital. I just kept asking GOD to please make a way for us, and How? & Why? was I again going through this same circumstance.
To make things worse, my husband lost his freedom and here I was alone with four boys a (2mo), (2y),(13y), & (14y) old who is disabled, nonverbal, and is wheelchair bound. Now we are back in another hotel room that I had to be paid for daily. Pamela helped with this also. She came all the way down to Albany to get us to bring us back to Atlanta and help us try to get emergency housing and stable again. That didn’t work out.
So now you are probably asking yourself, "How did she ever survive all of that". GOD, that’s how! Was it a battle to stay grounded in GODs promises for my life? Yes! It was. It's not that I didn't have faith, it was that was I was so broken, that I could hardly hold my head or go through the day without breaking down. I was suffering from post-partum so bad after having the baby, that I actually thought about killing myself a 100 times a day, but every time I had gotten to my lowest thought, GOD would always intercept, and give me that boost to keep going. Pamela would call or I would call her.
I began to close myself up from the world. I was angry, hurt, and delusional. I could not see ahead of the midst this time. I broke down one day crying and I called Mrs. Pamela and I told her all the things that had taken place and the terrible situation I found myself in and she came immediately and got me and my kids. While writing this I am getting emotional because there are no words to describe the amount of gratitude and love that I have for her. She's like the mom I never had. I call her our own personal angel sent from GOD in human form, and I am forever grateful for her being always present in me and my family's life.
Now that, that storm has passed here is where I can tell you about all the triumphs of my tribulations. I am longer homeless. I have a three bedroom home with a yard for the kids, and garage that is just about as big as my house, that I am working on turning into my art studio.
The greatest thing about this story is, I now know why GOD took me through these trouble waters. I was to embedded on MAN saving and not GOD. I had put more trust in him, than I did in GOD. GOD makes no mistakes and everything happens for a reason. GOD had to remove him so that I may be able to go out in the world and minister to other younger women that are in similar or worst situations. I AM the blueprint and I must show them the way, just as Mrs. Pamela did for me.
I AM now helping young mother's in my community become stable, and I will eventually be able to start my own ministry one day soon. I don't have much right now to give but I do have my unconditional love for GOD and I know that he will always provide for us all. All my love, Stephanie
