Prison Ministry, Johannesburg

_thumbnail_Frank.jpg In Johannesburg we work with soon-to-be-released prisoners. These prisoners have had nothing to do except eat and sleep, so they are extremely thankful that we provide face-to-face interaction and classes. We use the 12 Foundation Stones Bible course, linked with a correspondence course, which the prisoners complete on their own time, and we have set up a library for them with Christian books. The prisoners are manifesting positive behavior changes and a desire to reach out to help the other prisoners with spiritual counseling. We are also able to host special activities for the prisoners, such as Christmas parties and Bible films.
