GIVING CODE: ACM1739
THE NEED: $3,000.00
About the project
FIELD: Commonwealth of Independent States (former Soviet Union)
COUNTRIES: Ukraine, Russia
Many of the men and women who go through the programs at Nazarene rehabilitation centers in CIS countries are coming out of prison. Several of the former prisoners, after coming to faith in Christ, feel called back to jails to share the Good News. In CIS, prisons are filled with people who have been lingering in the system for years without hope. Prisons lack the basic human needs, including adequate clothing and toiletries for hygiene. All funds raised will be used not only to provide Bibles to prisoners, but also to provide items to meet the basic needs of these men and women.
We are ministering to people who have been jailed through the Word of God. Over the past year, a number of inmates from four prisons in Ukraine and one women’s prison in Russia have received spiritual and material support from volunteers visiting and ministering to them. With small donations, NCM CIS has been able to partner with those volunteers to provide some support for the basic needs of inmates. Volunteers visit prisons two to three times a week, and more than 50 inmates have joined the worship services held inside the prisons.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
$25 will provide Bible and christian literature for one prisoner
$50 will provide used clothing and toiletries for three prisoners
$50 will help provide necessary medications for an inmate
$100 will help cover costs of organizing outreach event inside prison
