What We Hear From You!
I've read and seen a lot
on the Manson murders, and therefore have
heard of Charles Watson several times. I
do believe that he's truly sorry for his
role in these crimes, and has accepted responsibility
for his part in them. God has awesome powers,
and one of those powers is to turn those
who do not believe in Him into His worshipers.
I wish Mr. Watson all the best in his efforts
to continue to spread the Word.
I know that Mr. Watson
may never know about this message but I
wanted to say that his testimony is very
powerful indeed. I know Mr. Watson regrets
that he took part in the Manson family,
but God took a man who committed a heinous
crime and turned his story into a beautiful
testimony of God's unconditional love and
grace! A prayer for all prisoners that they
too may be saved through God's grace! Praise
God and our Savior Jesus Christ!
Hello, My name is Jennifer.
I recently served (well, almost served)
on a jury for a murder trial. I truly believe
that God put me there for a reason. I have
not been able to stop thinking about how
many people, children of God, are forgotten.
Society says that we are defined by our
actions, but that is not what the bible
says. We are defined as children of God,
imperfect children who have been saved becuase
of Gods grace and sacrifice. I dont want
for any inmate to think that they have no
life left and that they are unworthy of
Gods love. The truth is that none of us
are worthy, but we still have it.
Hey, this is an awesome
website! I recently watched something on
the history channel about Charles Manson.
It is awesome the way the grace of God works!
I love Brother Watson's studies and know
that he is doing such tremendous work for
Jesus! Thank you God bless you guys keep
up the good work! we will be praying for
I just want to say hello
and let you know that I loved reading through
this website. I also am a christian and
rejoice that Charles Watson has become such
a strong man of God! It's very exciting
to know that he has been so faithful to
the Lord all these years. Please let him
know that I'm praying for him and the continued
success of his outreach prison ministry.
Thank you and God bless!!
If anything, reading Watson's
testimony makes me realize that I must not
judge who gets eternal life and who doesn't,
for that is up to Jesus. It helps me to
lose the anger I've had for years for his
horrible acts. I can't help but believe
he is sincere because he has confessed and
denounced Manson. Wow, if it can happen
for him, it can happen for anybody, right?
The good he has done is to show young people
what drugs, anger, insecurity and a lack
of having Jesus in their lives can do to
them. I pray that young people will turn
away from drugs and look to the cross! God
is so amazing.
Just watched the tex watson
story and the end was very emotional i just
want to say that Gods forgiveness is very
unlimited & if we confess our sin he
is faithful and just forgive us of our sin
& cleanse us from all unrightousness.the
apostle paul killed and had the early christians
jailed.he was there when they stoned stephen.Then
one day he was on his way to damascas and
he was met by jesus ans jesus ask him why
he persucuted & he ask him who are you
he said iam jesus whom you persecute.After
that paul was a changed man & went on
to be insipred by God to write i believe
16 books in the new testament.So Grace can
go alot alot farther than we ever think.
So long in Christ Daril
Just a normal working class
christian. I came across your web site while
taking a break from working on the graveyard
shift. Charles story is very inspirational.
Thanks for the time and effort to do the
witnessing you do. (not only to prisoners)
Mr. Watson's life is a
testament to the love of Jesus Christ and
that He can turn all things for His good.
I have just come across
all this news about the Mansons. I just
read Mr. Watson's testimony and I can't
tell you how much it has blessed me to see
how God has changed this man's life and
how he is not wasting his time in prison.
He has made more of an impact in prison
than he would have if he had of not been
arrested. It's not very often you see a
person with such bold faith and so evident
in his life and testimony. Please tell Mr.
Watson thank you for his bold testimony
and for his sharing his faith with countless
millions of people. This is the kind of
testimony that speaks volumes, and the kind
that gives others hope in their hopelessness.
This has made my day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Something good did come out of all that
evil and wickedness. I remember watching
the movie on TV when I was a youth and I
remember being so oppressed. Now I can have
something good to think about the whole
situation, God's goodness and saving Grace.
I will pray for God's perfect will in his
and his family's life. Terri - Fairmount,
Some years ago, I'd heard
that Mr. Watson had become a Christian,
but, until now, had no way of verifying
it! Therefore, I am quite thrilled to actually
see the truth of his conversion to Christ!!!
I am in the process of someday acquiring
a PhD in Restorative Justice which is a
method of helping people find an alternative
to a life of crime via reformation as opposed
to undergoing punishment ONLY! Chuck Colson's
prison ministry incorporates this viable
and proven approach! My very good friend
works as a part-time chaplain in the federal
and state prison system of Pennsylvania.
Since Charles cannot read this email, please
tell him, in your own words, of my joy in
learning of how God has restored his life
and given him a Divine Calling in ministering
to fellow prisoners around the world; and
that I'll be remembering him in prayer on
a regular basis as a newfound brother in
the Lord!!! Sincerely in Christ's Name,
James - Auburn, MA
May God continue to use
you to spread His word to everyone in prison.
Please stress to them that it is never too
late to ask Jesus Christ in your heart.
Thank God for your minisrty. May God continue
to give you His strength and grace to tell
everyone about Jesus. God Bless You! Kayla

I always am in prayer for
Watson and his prison ministry..What was
meant for evil God turned to good.. Back
in the day my mothers boyfriend defended
charles manson for publicity only and as
a young teen I was exposed to this case.
I was full of such joy when This man Charles
Watson was saved and forgiven and snatched
from the pit of hell. I am with Charles
Colsons Pen pal to an inmate and appreciate
your missionary web site. Very uplifting..
Thank you Rev. Anne
I just wanted to say that
I recently read a "Where Are They Now?"
article about the Manson Family, and the
"Tex" part caught my eye. I, too,
am a born again Christian, so I checked
out this website. I think it is so amazing
that our God has brought you out of such
bondage! What an incredible testimony you
have--it's good to know that even though
you are dutifully carrying out you sentence,
you are a shining example of Christianity
in one of the darkest places!!!
Charles & I were neighbors
for a time in 1997-1999 in Bldg 6 @ MCSP.
He is absolutely right on many topics he
has written. I grew up as a firm believer
in the death penalty. As I spent my last
two years of my sentence on that yard, I
could see that there were some men that
had actually manifested a change in their
heart sufficient enough to cause them to
live a life so obviously different than
their previous one. Although Charles and
I were not "close", I believe
that he was one such man. As a result I
no longer am a proponent of the death sentence
and a believer that change is possible.
It is through individuals, like Charles,
by living as an example, that God can change
men. I paroled in 1999 and through God's
grace have not re-offended or returned to
I just wanted to leave
this message saying how surprised I was
to hear that Mr. Watson is now a Christian
and what a blessing it was for me to read
through the website and see how some good
came from such a horrendous crime that terrorised
us all. I know Mr. Watson will never see
this, but I wish all the best for him and
pray that God continues to work in his life
and those around him. Thank you God for
even the smallest of blessings! Rachael
This is the first time
I have ever researched anything about the
crime in which Mr Watson was involved in.
I just want to say I admire Mr Watson for
upholding his actions and is now at peace
with Christ. I do wish him and his family
I just wanted to let Charles
know that I am in prison ministry and that
I have used his testimony on forgiveness
to the ladies who come out for church. The
Lord has used his testimony to administer
hope in the lives of the women we deal with
and I'm just writing to say thank you, God
bless you and be encouraged Charles because
the Lord is still using you greatly here
in Pa. Bless You brother.
