Not long ago Jeff received the go-ahead from the head of Ukraine prisons to write up a proposal for starting ministry in some of the Ukraine prisons. Therefore, today he has gone to the central Ukrainian town of Vinnitsa to meet with prison officials there to arrange for setting up meeting and seminars in their prison. This is a prison where our BMA missionary Pavel Pachopsky has people who have worked and are ready to expand work in the prisons.
Last April Jeff took a delegation of Ukrainian prison wardens to America so they could see first hand how ministry in prisons can reduce the rate of resitivism of prisoners. This is a great opportunity that could have immence impact on the whole country in time. The head of Ukraine prisons even suggested that they put the prison guards through this Christian training as well. We stand amazed at the open doors, but still ask that you pray about this so problems will not beset and close doors.
