Kairos Prison Ministry

March 01, 2011 | Nan Peters

The Kairos Prison Ministry is a structured weekend with talks, chapel visits, prayer, singing, laughing and home-cooked meals. Adventist women, along with women of other denominations, went into Hiland Mountain Correctional Center in Eagle River, just north of Anchorage, Alaska, to encourage and lead 24 inmates to Christ.

Volunteers prepared meals, transported food to and from the institution, and separated cookies into bags to be delivered to inmates.

Four Adventists were on the team — two for the first time. The new members were great additions and such witnesses. Some said it was an opportunity for the church members to show how God works in Adventists' lives and their understanding of the Bible.

One prison guests puts it this way: "I learned what true Christian fellowship looks like and that unconditional love is real."

An Adventist Bible study is also given each Thursday night at the correctional center. Kairos alumni have attended these Bible studies.
