Steps toward changing

Another ongoing project is the educational program "Steps toward Changing", which aims to optimize conceptions, feelings, attitudes and behavior in crisis situations, to make decisions constructively and creatively by the persons deprived of their liberty who participates in the program.
Steps toward changing

The program includes 7 men deprived of their liberty from the Maximum Security Penitentiary in Aiud, section 1. The course started in March and will take place over a 12-week period, and the coordinator is Costi Pop.

The goal of the program is for participants to discover their attitudes that can destroy their lives and change their behavior to acquire new relational and communication skills. The information gathered will help them in the relationship with the civil society after release from custody of the Aiud Penitentiary.

The themes approached within the program are: Choices, Capacities and personal limits, Discovering their personal values, Making right decisions, Consequences of our decisions, Walking in the light, Walking in love, Staying in Christ, Living in righteousness, God is love, Is God our Father ? .

At the end of the meetings, we want to see growth and maturity in their relationship with God.

  • Love in Christ

    My dear brothers and sisters, Grace and peace from our Heavenly Father to the whole church. We thank God that He answered our wish and prayer, and our meeting was possible. God knows we need messengers like you, that are willing to share His great and unfailing love.
  • I want the Bible to be the compass of my heart

    I will start by writing this testimony, that on this side of the correspondence there is a man who has done wrong by earthly laws, a man who is paying with 9 years of his freedom, a man who is accused of sinning greatly, a man (if he can still be called that) who is still asking in all humility for forgiveness and salvation, a man who is seeking peace with God.
  • I know the Word of God but I wish I know it better, to think about it and receive it in my soul

    Every time the danish group visit us I feel a great joy. I would like to correspond with some of you and discuss about life, destiny and of course about our faith in Jesus Christ. I am 31 years old, and when I was 16, my life took on a wrong way.
  • What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?

    Thank you for sustaining and for encouraging me through the biblical courses you had . Not so long time ago I was interned in Colibasi Penitentiary, but I've never doubted the Word of God, because I knew that God was all the time with me, and when I prayed I gave him thanks for everything.
  • My sinful soul rejoice when it got to know God

    I met you, in a place called “hell” and my sinful soul rejoiced when it got to know God and hear of His Love for humans, and of His great sacrifice -the only beloved Son. If God made this sacrifice for all people, my answer is that I want to be like you, not to be ashamed of myself, to become a child of God, to return Home to my Father, and to do what He wanted me to do.
  • He made from me a new man

    Blessed be our Good God because He takes care of the siners like me, who searches Him and finds Him.The biblic course that I made by correspondence with you made me very interested in the Word of God and it made from me, what I didn't expect to do, he made from me a “new man”.
