Prison Magazine Ministry

With the 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.

As our 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:

Reporter No.3, 2021

Moving the Pirkko Home from Nikulino to Udomlya
In March 2021, due to difficulties caused by a local resident in the village of Nikulino, we were forced to leave and look for a new location.

Ministry of The Gospel Behind Barbed Wire Magazine
Our magazine reaches very dark places and hearts that God cares about.
Mikhail K., 33 years old: “I spent my childhood in an orphanage near Minsk, Belarus. At the age of 15, I was first sent to a juvenile prison"
Ivan Shmakov, minister in the Kemerovo region: “All my former life I was obsessed with “thieves’ romance.” So I sat in prison until 2015,  with short breaks of freedom, a total of 8 convictions, without regret or remorse."

RCR Recording Studio Ministry
Ayur Vanzhilov: The RCR-Videos YouTube channel has 31,000 subscribers now, and more than 800,000 watch every year. We receive more than a thousand messages every month.

“I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you took me in” - Matthew 25:35

Ministry to Ukrainian refugees - So far we have sent $39,000 to help refugees at 3 locations, and are sending more funding each week or two. Besides providing humanitarian aid, our partner churches and missionaries are sharing the Gospel, praying with people, and even helping to stop human trafficking.

The Gospel Behind Barbed Wire Magazine Ministry - Due to the sharp rise in paper prices, we were able to print only 4,000 copies of the newest magazine (topic: “Call to Me”) for the same budget, this is the minimum required to reach our audience.
Prison ministry. At the end of March, all COVID restrictions on visits to Russian prisons were lifted, and ministry began actively among the convicts again. Thanks be to God. 

'Pirkko Home - Liberation' Ministry - Despite the current difficulties, God's work in the Pirkko Homes is being accomplished. The feeding of the homeless and the distribution of fresh bread & Bibles in Zheleznogorsk and Rumyantsevo is bearing fruit - people come to the Pirkko Homes and to the local churches. Praise God!
