LETTERS FROM PRISON is a book about the impact one woman had on ministries to those behind the bars of those serving time in juvenile hall, county jails and state prisons. After 40 years of suffering from incest, sexual assault, much physical abuse, mental and emotional torture Jesus set her free and healed her. She gives a short testimony of her life and the instructions God gave her that set her free that she has passed on to many others who have been healed and set free.
Virgalee Brooks was born in Burrton, KS into a family of ten children. She has five brothers and four sisters. She has been blessed with three children and three grandchildren. She moved with her family to California when she was sixteen years old. Virgie has served God through Follow Up Ministries International (FUMI) with her time, energy, and resources for over thirty-four years in various capacities: Office Manager, Team Leader, Event Planner & Coordinator, Bible Study Teacher, Seminar Coordinator, Seminar Teacher, Director of Women's Ministries, leading Chapel Services, and assisting in training volunteers for ministry service. With a passion for leading others to Christ, Virgie became a God Squad volunteer, traveling thousands of miles to serve those incarcerated in sixteen different adult and juvenile institutions between the counties of Alameda and San Diego, from Stanislaus County in California to Cook County in Chicago, Illinois. Virgalee currently lives with her two sons in the Sierra Nevada Foothills of Northern California where she is active in prison ministry services.
Virgalee's favorite scripture verse for living and helping others release the chains of defeat is found in God's Word, the Holy Bible (AMP). Isaiah 41:10, "Fear not (there is nothing to fear), for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.
