My 6th Parole hearing...
2nd 1 this year

Been telling the story all day...
So 4give me if I sum it up

After the usual protocol we got down 2 the nitty gritty
Which began with Mrs Pierce saying
"Programs have been completed. Conducts have been satisfactory.... N I believe u have served enuff
time 4 punishment! So I'm going 2 give U 3-months n a PRI (pre release investigation). That
means U'll have a meeting with ur social worker n talk with Ur (parole) agent. Once she
approves Ur aunt then we'll look 2 release u in 3 months!"

Trembling I exclaimed, "U won't regret this!"
Thought 2 give her an air hug but settled on giving her an air hand shake! My 1st one.

Rather than go 2 lunch I opted 2 stay in my cell n give credit 2 God 4 this miracle. He ain't have
2 do this but He chose 2! Amen. Not 4 any good in me or any cake I've baked or whatever. Lord
knows I don't always do what I know 2 do,but I'm growing,especially in loving my enemy's! Talk
bout hard work. Anyway thanked god 4 helping my unbelief. He told me I was gone get
3-month with a PRI but I ain't believe Him.Seemed 2 good 2 b tru,so I kept thinking 'maybe I'll
get a 6-month with PRI!"
No way I seen a 5 month decrease! Got used 2 them only taking off a month! But my God
assures me He can do exceeding above all that I ask or think! Ephesians 3:20 another verse
says, eyes have not den nor ear heard nor has it entered into the heart of man the things God
has 4 those who love Him. 1 Corinthians 2:9
Better yet since I fervently prayed on December 12,2020 2 know my exact release date
MARCH 15 been coming 2 me!
What R the odds that because of 2days decision I go back 2 parole in ...
In all likely hood
I'll b released from prison somewhere between March n April 2021

Still wrapping my head around it

Can't wait

Plan 2 run full speed 2 the gatehouse
See u there!

Dear Antoine, 1-1-21
I got your letter and was reading about a parole hearing and was like, oh let me check BtB and wow, that is some good news! And also: Happy New Year to you! Hope covid didn't leave any traces and that you're in good health again.
Warm greetings,
