Prisoner Seeks Christian Correspondence

Kayla Buchanan is from Avery County and is the mother of 3 children.  She is 31 years old, and has been serving time in Federal prisons for a few  years with a few years left to serve.  She is currently incarcerated in Aliceville, Alabama and has lost touch with almost everyone who meant so much to her in her life. She is a Christian, is intelligent, hard-working, loving and kind.  She is finishing her electrical course this month and she has earned her GED.  She would like Christian fellowship through the mail and it would be a blessing to her to hear from you.  And she is a blessing to all as I can attest to from my getting to know her through my Prison Ministry Jesus for Prisoners.
