Prison ministry is one of the areas of diaconia, the mercy ministry Jesus commanded His Church to do. The Halfway House in Novosibirsk is a center that gives aid to current and former prisoners and their families. Ex-convicts receive assistance in their re-integration in society such as doing legal paperwork, finding a job, restoring their relationship with family, and other areas. Project director Lutheran Deacon Vyacheslav Ostanin visits prisons and brings support to prisoners’ family members. Please keep this ministry in your prayers!
“I was in prison and you came to me.” (Mt. 25:36)
