Frontline pastors and Christian ministry workers in Russia and former Soviet republics are taking huge risks to spread the Gospel and help those in need.
The US-based Slavic Gospel Association says they are “risking everything” to aid orphans, widows, suffering families and addicts.
It told Christian Newswire that in Ukraine, Armenia and Azerbaijan, they’re helping those traumatised by war.
In Russia’s Far East near the Arctic Circle, one pastor helped fight a forest fire.
During the pandemic, others trekked hundreds of kilometres on foot to deliver food, medicines and Bibles.
The Association is hoping to raise $30,000 to help the pastors.
That’s around $1,000 for each of them to continue sharing the love of Christ in the harshest of conditions.
