My name is John Redcorn & I want to achieve total fitness. I work out every day & I exercise my mind with my case manager, Kristen, going over things with the packet with what I have to achieve. Also I wanna get back in touch with my native heritage, which is Cherokee. I’m going to go to the native pow-wows. They do it their way, I do it mine. I stand in for any colors. Jesus gave me a second chance to live for, pretty much smarten up. My favorite color is blue. My favorite guards are Deb, Florida & Duddly. (I don’t mean to single anyone out.) My cellmates are Uncle Dok and my brother Rage. I like Reece Witherspoon, too. He’s a good guy. And my ex-roommate Chad Nazer, & Jeff “Sparky” Tyler is cool too. And Cody over there at sermon. Eric Munson’s crazy. He’s a good guy. I wanna say “Hi” to my folks. Frank & his situation – man – I feel for him. When I get out I wanna send a special prayer to each & every prisoner & to everyone a special thanks. I’ve learned a lot. Amen.

The times when you feel you’re going to fall flat on your face.

I worked for months on end trying to put stuff together. I worked night and day. The day came. My nerves were jumping all around; I didn’t know how I got myself in this. Everyone is telling me, “I can do this” Then it is over and everything went off without a hitch.

This is how things went this week when I had to preach. My first time with a group full of men. I have always preached to teens and young kids. (No, I am not an offender.) The youth is the future of this world so that is why I work with them more than adults.

But I thank all those who supported me on this matter. I feel with everyone’s help, we as a church family here at MCC can grow and make it through this time of trial.

Yesterday me and another guy were going to the gym. When we got to Sallyport, the other guy (which was Rage) wanted to pray to get good hoodoo going. We got in the stairwell & we were away from the other guys and we prayed quickly.

But when we went upstairs Officer Mango in Sallyport control held us back. He’d seen u s on camera & was asking us what we had been doing. Praying, said Rage. Mango told us not to do it again that it wasn’t chapel. Definitely the last time he said. I thought it was stupid. I guess he doesn’t like praying. Maybe he’s a Satanist. Rage said that since we got shit for praying it was like persecution & that made it worth even more hoodoo. It’s stupid that Mango hates Christians. If he prayed, maybe Jesus would help him lose weight.

I love you, Erin! Pick up the phone!

I am sorry about the mess I have made of my life —
I want to turn away from all the wrong things I have ever done,
And all the wrong things I have ever been —
Please forgive me for all of it —
I know you have the power to change my life and turn me into a winner.
Thank you GOD for getting my attention long enough to interest me in
Trying it your way.
GOD, please take over management of my life and everything about me.
I am making this conscious decision to turn my will and my life over to your care, and am asking you to please take over all parts of my life.
Please GOD move into my heart —
However you do your business, fill my heart with your love and Holy Spirit,
And let me know your will for me.
And now GOD, help your self to me and keep on doing it. I am not sure I want you to, but do it anyway —
I rejoice that I am now part of your people, that my uncertainty is gone
forever, and that you now have control of my life —
Thank you and praise your name —
Amen.
