We Provide Resources to Russian-Speaking Christians

Most of the week of August 25-31, 2013, I (Oleg) spent at the Walter Stewart Library in Toronto, writing Christian materials, mission field updates and reflecting in writing on the processes and developments that Evangelical Christianity in the former USSR goes through.

One of our ministry avenues is writing and publishing resources in Russian language for those that speak the language in the former USSR and for millions that immigrated to North America and other Western countries in the last 25 years. As many of you know, since 2000, I was able to teach in the classrooms in Moldova and other former Soviet countries hundreds of students, who now serve on the mission field in difficult places. They, and other Christians are in need of spiritual nourishment. This is why we are spending countless hours in libraries and at computer, providing theological and ministerial resources to the vast army of Christian workers.

Our Christian Megapolis magazine and Perspectives paper reach vast audiences both in Russia, Moldova and North America.

In 2012, our ministry published a book entitled Understandable Christianity, which talks about Christian faith in Slavic context in simple terms.

By the end of 2013, we plan to publish a book, entitled This Happened in Our Time, in which we will share our experiences of "living in between the times" - the period since the collapse of the USSR (the country, in which we were born) until the present day.
