Bethel Baptist Church ministers to inmates in Mukobeko, Maximum Security, Medium Security and Female Correctional Facilities in Kabwe, Zambia, which house more than 2,000 inmates. Over 250 of them are on death row. The main focus is on sharing the gospel with inmates and the discipleship of those who have come to faith.
E3’s partnership helps support this ministry and provides necessities like soap and toothpaste to the prisoners, as well as books and other materials to those who are studying whilst in prison. This work is coordinated by James Chileshe. According to reports in Zambia, the prison is very over crowded. Life is extremely tough for the prisoners.
