Activities Report for 2009

Prison Ministry:

We have been running our Bible Study Course for the past 4 years now at Kutama Sinthumule Correctional Centre in Louis Trichardt in Limpopo. For 2009 participation in the course has risen to 117. Each of the students received monthly class sheets free of charge. A total of 980 classes as well as 76 booklets were mailed to the students throughout 2009. Course participants are required to attend classes that are conducted by facilitators – inmates that are appointed by the Chaplain’s office. The courses include a test after each module which is then mailed to us for assessment. This enables us to monitor progress and offer counsel or assistance when needed. We started keeping records on our end to monitor attendance of classes. 73 students graduated at the end of the year each receiving a small gift. A number more participated throughout the year but were unable to complete the course due to being transferred or not meeting course requirements.

Activities Report for 2006

Prison ministry:

Throughout the year 2006 we have received a number of letters from inmates in Kutama Sinthumule Correctional Centre in Louis Trichardt, a maximum security prison in Limpopo. Many were requesting Bible Study Course materials. In response to their requests we have mailed monthly the 12 Foundation Stones Course class sheets and booklets to inmates at this correctionsal institution. This ministry has grown from 5 prisoners at the beginning of the year to 34 by the end of the year. A small group took on the task of teaching the course materials to others and started forming prayer groups. A number of the inmates have received the Lord through the classes and course materials. In an effort to further encourage them we visited to meet with our students there.

The following are excerpts of a reaction to the course from one of the inmates:
