Glimpses of Russia and Ukraine

Most people in Russia and Ukraine live in large cities such as Moscow, Kazan, and Kiev. We’d like you to meet some of the people that call these cities home, and those who are reaching out to them for Jesus.

More than 150 literature evangelists, medical missionaries, and pastors are participating in the Kiev: City of Hope outreach, providing free health education, nutrition kiosks, books, concerts, and Bible studies. To learn more, please visit   

Please pray that our Mission to the Cities outreach will help people find true, lasting hope in Jesus. And thank you for your mission and world budget offerings—they help make mission possible!
