ETHIOPIA—Ejere Prison in the West Shewa Zone of Oromia Regional State is one of the prisons where the MKC Prison Ministry has been serving. In addition to providing holistic services to the inmates, the prison ministry shares the gospel of love to inmates. In Ejere Prison, two of the inmates who accepted Christ were released from the prison after finishing their sentences.
These two ex-prisoners, Gadisa and Birru, planted a new MKC church in their community. The MKC Prison Ministry visited them this month. The number of their church members reached more than 100. The Prison Ministry team was honored to attend the baptism of 18 new believers.
God transformed the lives of criminals through his love and used them to share the good news of Jesus Christ with other people. The team praised God to be a witness to his power of transforming the hearts of people.
