When I asked Mrs. Holland when we began contributing cards to "Christmas Behind Bars" she chuckled as she tried to remember. We have been contributing cards for quite a long time, starting after we found out about the ministry at an ASI convention.
So why have we done it for so long? When I asked Mr. Montague he said “I think that it helps us think of those who are not as fortunate as we are: they don’t have, in their present state, the freedom that we have. They probably don't have family and friends writing them. For many of them, their lives are at risk on a day to day basis. No one is thinking about them as often. So for us, it gives the opportunity to think about what they might be going through.”
