Dietrich Bonhoeffer‘s ministry to the students of Finkenwalde continued after the Seminary was closed by the Gestapo. Many of these students were soldiers in the German Army. He wrote letters and sent packages to them.

Bonhoeffer’s ministry to the brethren of Finkenwalde continued in these packages and in frequent letters. That Christmas (1940) he sent out ninety such packages and letters; it seems that he had to type the letter over many times using carbon copies to make it a bit less  draining.
