Saint Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church, PO 37, McKinney TX 75070 Dear in Christ Demetrios:
I have written a general letter to all the guys I hope to see in prison. You are still one of them! I intend to get permission to get to see you and schedule regular visits. You know how hard this is. I have not forgotten you! Is there no chance you will transfer back? If so, I will get with the permission stuff. Here is the general letter I sent our today. The only changes in it were that I gave unit specific information only to those in that unit.
Through no particular effort on my own, there are a lot of you that I will be seeing regularly, God helping me, in three different prisons. After a lot of struggles getting my schedule changed to allow prison visitation again, finally, after several months, my schedule is set. I want all of you to know that I pray for everybody on my prison dyptichs (the word means list – a list of names for prayer), every day, and just today, based on some new information, I have a lot of new names. I have never forgotten any of you, and have made many attempts to get my schedule changed, due to my unfortunate need to also work in a secular job whose days changed. It has been a long time, but I have been pushing to get back all of that time.
