(Siberia)–A ministry to drug addicts in Siberia is reaping a harvest of more then just those in rehab. Malcolm Smith with Bible Mission International says they’re presenting Christmas baskets to families of those in drug rehabilitation. “It’s a great time of the year to be able present the message of hope that we have in Christ. And the churches there are responding by giving people these Christmas packages that not only include food and clothes but also God’s word. We’re praying for a significant harvest as a result of this.” Smith says its opening doors. “When we’re there long term and the church continues to meet the needs of people and they don’t get anything in return, all that does is just bring more validity to why we’re giving this aid. And, we’re giving it in the name of Christ; we’re expressing compassion and we’re asking nothing in return and the people are responding.”
