As The Soviet Union collapsed around them, this country descended into a bloddy civil war that was to destroy any semblance of peace and prosperity in this historic corner of the Russian- speaking world. While Peace has prevailed, the country suffers from little interest or investment from the outside. Despite hardship, the number of believers has steadily grown over the years as men and women, disillusioned with their leaders and the traditions of their ancestors, discovered the hope that is found in the person of Jesus Christ. Our team will travel to villages, and will establish relationships with villagers through humanitarian aid. Local ministry partners will accompany our team and will continue relationships with the villagers, ultimately establishing house churches.
