Many of you have been aware of the tragic story of the false conviction of my niece, Hannah Overton. She has been in prison now for over three years and that ordeal has been going on for more than four years now.
Many of you have been lifting prayersup to God Almighty for His intervention in having Hannah released from prison. Hannah has ministered to many fellow inmates and to others outside prison with her encouraging letters.
Hannahís is a story of a woman willing to serve God through the hardest of circumstances, and a story of the Body of Christ coming together with much support and prayer for a sister in Christ who is in need. God has provided mightily for Hannah and her family through His people throughout this whole ordeal. God is to be praised!!!!
We have gone through the appeals process and are now at a point where we believe it is time to take our appeal to the Governor and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles. We are asking you for your support now by printing one of the attached letters, filling it out and signing it, and putting it into an envelope with a stamp to be mailed.There are two letters attached for you to pick from, one more formal, one less formal. You could pick which ever one fits your personality and your relationship to Hannah. We would also encourage those of you that know Hannah personally, and want to, to write your own letter.
The letter should be mailed to
Governor Perry and the Board of Pardons and Paroles
PO Box 60207
Corpus Christi, TX 78466
These letters will be collected and taken, unopened, all together to the Board of Pardons and Paroles. Feel free to share this email with others who you think might be willing to send a letter for Hannah. Also feel free to post this email on Facebook and send the attachment(s) to anyone requesting it. Some of us are going to set up tables at our churches with printed copies for people to sign that we will then mail for them. (a poster is also attached to help with this)
