Prison Magazine Ministry
Lord’s blessing and your faithful support, RCR's Prison Ministry continues
spreading the Gospel through the magazine, The Gospel Behind Barbed Wire.
Considering the need in prisons, we would like to be able to increase
the number of magazines we can print; our last increase was in 2017,
from 6500 to 7500 copies of each issue, printing 6 issues per year.
Praise God! Since it is funded 100% by freewill donations, we can only
increase the number of copies as God provides. We believe that God will
provide and fulfill the needs of His ministry, and our
faith is based on multiple blessings and miracles we have seen.
faith and desire to help is encouraged by the letters received from prisons, below are just a few inspirational excerpts out of hundreds of letters we receive: Read more >>>
