Each year, SGA partners contribute to the Frontline Pastors Christmas Campaign. They generously send gifts to help provide special Christmas gifts for missionary pastors, children’s workers, and their families across Russia and her neighboring countries. These faithful laborers in the Gospel have very little, and what income they do receive mostly gets put back into their year-round ministries. They joyfully receive the generous gifts you help send, and we would like to share some of their thanksgiving with you!
Here are some thanks from last year, which we know will be repeated this year! –
Dear brothers and sisters, we greet you! Our family sincerely thanks you for the financial gift for Christmas. It is wonderful that people who live so far away and have never met us choose to help us on such a blessed holiday—the birth of our Savior! You helped not only embellish our Christmas table, but also to make gifts to those who need our love—this is one of the best times to tell them about our Savior. God bless you!
—The Larkov Family (Ukraine)
I am very grateful for your help and prayers, and thank the Lord for your open, kind, and sacrificial hearts. Many thanks from our entire family—you helped us purchase Christmas gifts. May God richly bless you in your life and work!
—Sergei Kirilenko (Ukraine)
I greet you with the love of our Lord Jesus Christ! Our family warmly thanks you for your annual Christmas gifts. We are so happy that someone thinks of us and helps take care of us in our ministry. We are glad that our children see it as God’s provision and care for our family. May the Lord bless you and your families!
—The Shevkunovs (Russia)
I am serving as a missionary pastor in Dzerzhinsk. God blesses and adds those who are being saved to the church. But in many ways, the results of my ministry depend on those who support it.
I am very grateful for your gift—it is wonderful to know that there are those who remember me and my family. Your gift gives my family the opportunity to bless our children. My wife and I also get a “piece of Christmas cake.” Your gift helps us have something for Christmas that we couldn’t afford otherwise. Thank you very much for helping us to not be in need during the holidays!
