PSYCHOSOCIAL REHABILITATION AND REINTEGRATION INTO SOCIETY AND LABOR MARKET FOR CONVICTS WITH ADDICTIONS AND PERSONS RELEASED FROM PRISON

Why “Mustard seed” ?

Mark 4, 26-32 He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.” Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”

LORD TEARS

Who tears this scattered?

What is pierced through the heart?

Who love Tury infinite,

To save souls nowadays?

This is the Lord's warm tears

and the heart aches for him to

when dying is looking for help,

or what will be for them pakovos?

Will every sacrifice what dearest!? ...

their lives for them,

a darkness of the soul juodžiausioj

and minds have not seen the light.

For those who are crushed in spirit,

prison "meat grinder" that

alcohol and those who "kills"

but suffered a fiasco ... pretty!

Here ... a tiny "mustard seed"

To fall to the ground ... and death ...

that the root of the strongest released,

... grow up, say "the sky is based on."

Baste "mustard seed"!

Wither raven black!

Paremkit its slender stalk!

Pakelkit lowered branches.

... Come, sit on the shade,

all of whom difficulty in burden,

for strength exhausted to fight with the wind "

... "Bleed" wounded heart.

Sukses branches of nesting birds,

Remarkably sing hymns,

Songs of the rise in the sky,

far, far nuplasnos children.

ACTIVITIES

Our faith, values and philosophy

Lord (Bible– Mt. 7,6) teaches:

“Don’t give that which is holy to the dogs, neither throw your pearls before the pigs, lest perhaps they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.”

Therefore our knowledge, time and money is not wasting to anyone, and sacrifice for those who are thirsty for a "new life, and a real changes”.

Bible (James 2:14-20) says:

“What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith, but does not have works?…So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead…But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe and shudder. But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless? “

Therefore, we try to live and work in a way that works of our faith, will reach eternity unburnt in Lord's testing fire, when we will leave this temporary habitation on the Earth.
