In addition to the great spiritual emptiness that exists across Russia, the former Soviet countries of Eastern Europe, and Central Asia, millions of people are facing tremendous physical needs. Unemployment and poverty are rampant in many regions, and day-to-day survival is a constant struggle. Working as one to be His hands and feet, SGA-related churches are reaching out with the compassion of Jesus Christ, helping the forgotten regain hope and build a future. The support of SGA partners helps missionary pastors reach out to needy families with clothing, footwear, and distribution of staple food items—all the while pointing to the loving provision of our great God and Father.
