Dear Rob McGrath,

Hi my name is Ken. I just finished reading your story in a book called "Free at Last". I am currently at a RRAC, just starting a two and half year sentence. I did meet you and your wife when you were here in jail. What you have is what I want a life to be FREE. I started drinking and taking drugs at the age of 11 years old, I am now 42 years old and broken down inside. I have a wife who is an addict and three children ages 16,12,6 , whom I missed so much. If you could please help me I would be so ever grateful to you.

Thank you,



My name is Christopher and I am currently being held in custody at FRCC, Pending Parole. The reason I am writing to you, is because I have been looking for a Christian base program to help in my recovery. I have always believed in God, but never felt strong enough to apply his inspirations beyond being broke and helpless.

Since my Incarceration I began to read the Bible and contact Christian Ministries for correspondence courses. I prayed regularly and have made my mind about what I would like to do with the rest of my life.

I have heard so many good things about the "Good Shepherd" and I want to be a part of your program hoping to grow and help in the recovery of others in your program. I am finished with crime and drugs and need your services, your help, support and resources to move forward in my life.

Can you please be kind enough to help me, I need your help. I can assure you that I am not just another person pleading for your help, and take your services for granted.

God Bless and Thank you.

Dear Rob McGrath,

My name is Alan, I'm 31 years old. I am a drug addict, alcoholic and I've lived a life of drugs, gangs, and street crime. My whole life has been nothing but chaos, drama, loneliness, sadness, anger and humiliation. And because of my careless drug use I am also HIV and Hep C positive.

It's been roughly 14 years, I am separated from my wife and son because of my lifestyle choices I've made. I have been in and out of youth detention centers, jails, recovery houses and treatment centers, but always end up back in a negative circumstances.

I am sick and tired of the lifestyle I've been living, I am sick and tired using drugs and alcohol, of being helpless and hopeless. I am sick of having broken dreams and making broken promises. I want a stable lifestyle and happiness back in my life.

I read your story in the book Free at Last and I loved what you had to say. I would also like to start helping people like myself one day. I really would like to have you as a spiritual adviser in the near future and we could be friends. I need people like you and God to help me change.
