In response to the miserable plight of inmates at Harare’s Chikurubi Maximum Security Prison, the saints from Christ Embassy Belvedere, led by the esteemed Zonal Pastor of CE Southern Africa Zone 5, Pastor Ruth Musarurwa, rolled up their sleeves to improve the livelihood of the inmates.
The brethren were participating in the BLW International Day of Service, a call to action in commemoration of the birthday of the man of God, Reverend (Dr.) Chris Oyakhilome, giving basic necessities to the inmates.
Of particular interest to the church was a group of at least 17 condemned inmates extricated from society and without any significant others giving them a thought. This was to change however, as Pastor Ruth stirred the brethren to action, buying them apparel as well as making the gospel available to them.
The seventeen received copies of the Rhapsody of Realities Bible and the bestseller, ‘the Power of Your Mind’. They, having had no experience of family for a long time, finally had something to smile about as the church assimilated them, adopting them as their own.
