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.
Not only does SGA-sponsored Compassion Ministry help provide for the physical needs of the poor, distressed, and dispirited, but it also helps open the door for missionary pastors and other church workers to share the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ.
As more and more come to know Him as Savior and Lord, they discover their spiritual shackles broken, their physical needs met, and their lives eternally transformed by His saving power. And then—as part of God’s forever family—they themselves reach out to others to share the Good News of what God has done for them.
The faithful evangelical churches SGA serves strive to follow the example of the Lord Jesus in demonstrating His compassion by word and deed.
