We may be unable to visit those in prison, but we are able to write them a letter of encouragement and fellowship.

Write a letter to a believer in prison today!

One day, about ten years ago when it was time to check our post office box in Hillsboro, Ohio we found about five or seven letters in the mail. They were from prisoners. We still don’t know how they found us, but they did. Just from us simply replying to those few letters in the mail has brought more and more prisoners to sending us letters, requesting for our free books, tracts, the HalleluYAH Scriptures and some have even gotten our DVD’s in our prison library! It is amazing what Yahuwah has done in this Ministry (


We here at F.O.Y. spiritually feed those that are hungry in prisons. The prison ministry is greatly growing, we mail to many prisons all around the country. What started out as a couple letters has turned into hundreds! HalleluYAH! Yahuwah is calling all His people from where ever they have been brought forth!

HaShatan, has tried to hinder this very important work of spreading the Besorah (Good News) to the lost sheep behind bars. On this page we have added just some (there are more!) of the brethren that would be greatly blessed if you could write them a letter. Just tell them that you found them through the Followers of Yah contact directory online.

Even if it is simple a short letter saying hello, it would greatly be such an enormous blessing to these brothers in prison. You shall be blessed abundantly for ‘coming’ (writing) to these brothers in prison…

I have been a Jehovah’s Witness for about 3 years and then disagreed with some of their history and then became a Mormon with alot of my spiritual needs still being unmet. I believe it is right to use the Sacred Name of our Elohim and understand the true meaning our Bibles and also the Feast Days must still mean something to us who believe in Yahushua Ha Mashiach.

I am 43 years old born half Persian Jew half Latino, sadly both parents had drug problems and they ended up losing me and at that point I believed I was lost. I grew up in a Catholic home with people I knew weren’t blood relations I was restless and somewhat rebellious myself and ended up the same way my parents did drugged out and in prison. I felt something has been missing in my life for so long. I’ve really been hungry to learn about my Jewish roots I talks occasionally to the prison rabbi but the prison here isn’t really understanding when it comes to our religious experiences. We spend a lot of time alone in cells and I’m taking this time to read as much as possible. I would love to be placed on a contact page and written to by other Jews.

   I’m 24 years old and I am using my time in prison to develop myself mentally and physically. I’m looking for someone that is mature in their faith but willing to accept truths even if they go against long held convictions. I would prefer a man or woman pen pal. I would like to have a woman’s prespective on the questions I have concerning the holy Scriptures and life in general.

I am a light skinned black man. My interests unclude anything to do with ancient history that covers Egypt to the Middle East. I do alot of reading and writing. I’m currently in the process of learning a language called Gocez [handwriting it too hard to understand what language he wrote]. If anything I’ve written sparks any interest, please feel free to write.

Hello, My name is Chad Lee. I am 41 years old and originally from Wisconsin. I have spent the last 25 years rebelling against the L-rd’s instruction. Due to my rebellion, I ended up in here! Prison.

But this is the door the L-rd opened for me to save my life.  Praise YHWH our Messiah!

So now my life is in the Lord’s hands and if His will is what I am striving for.

Hopefully he will surround me with new friends of the Yahveh believers.

Prayer Request:
Pray that Yahveh keeps His right hand on me leading me in the right direction of His will for my life. I also want to ask that His light shine through His believers to draw the last back to his loving arms.

Thank You,
Chad Lee

My name is Michael Baker. I am 40 years of age and I’m in prison serving 20 years to life. I’ve been incarcerated since 11-7-93. I have been a believer since August 1998, I love our father Yahuh and His only son Yahushua Messiah. I love Torah and I love the complete word of Yahuah.

I am currently not in correspondence with anyone and I lost both parents in 2008. I would really appreciate meeting sincere brothers and sisters in the faith, even it is only through mail. People tell me I have an amazing testimony, but my life is simply an example of the Power of Yahuah in a persons’ life. I would love to share it with others. Please respond soon.

Love in Yahushua,
Brother Michael Baker

    I would caution any women writing to men in prison to be — very careful! Especially if a man specifically requests females to write them. Our Messiah told us to be “wise as a serpeant” because there are some who would use our faith as a tool to manipulate us. With that caveat I now commend this ministry for reaching out to those in prison. This is an excellent opportunity to encourage and strengthen the body of Messiah. Our Father is able to reach us when we are humble and prison can bring a man to a place where he is able to listen to YHWH call out. I plan on sending a few letters and see where the Ruach HaKodesh leads. Shalom.
