Letter To Prison Ministry

If anyone can contact John and help him in his Krsna consciousness, this would be greatly appreciated. If you want more information please contact Shyama Priya at the address below.

Dear Shyama Priya (ISKCON Prison Ministry),

I hope that everything is going well for you. I have been chanting my rounds on the japa beads that I made. I have received my parole, my out date is August 3. I'm going through a reentry program. The prison system just started doing this in an effort it stop recidivism.

I will be sent to Kalamazoo. I wanted to go to Detroit, so I could visit the temple, but didn't know anyone there, so they wouldn't parole me there.

I was wondering if there are any devotees living in the Kalamazoo, Michigan area? I would just like to have some association while I'm on parole.

My contact information is:
John Ruess #233364
Macomb Correctional Facility

New Haven MI 48048-3002

Your Friend, John Ruess
