That the generation to come might know . . . (Psalm 78:6).

God’s Word tells us of the importance of children in the eyes of God. In Russia and her neighboring countries, generations are growing up with little or no knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and reaching them with the Gospel is critical.

Russian children and their families face monumental challenges. Economic conditions have been unstable since the Soviet collapse, and even two decades after the end of atheistic communism, millions are left with an enormous spiritual vacuum. Parents want better lives for their children, and they are deeply grateful when caring local church workers show genuine love to their little ones. Because of this, evangelical churches have tremendous opportunities for evangelistic outreach and discipleship ministries dedicated to children. Best of all, as the children are shown Christ’s love through the local church and believe the Gospel, the children often become the evangelists to reach their whole families.

Children are the church of tomorrow, and whether it’s through SGA-sponsored summer camps, orphan ministry or Sunday schools, the God-given opportunities to reach them are truly vast.

A Devastating Fire Couldn’t Stop Children’s Ministry!

I am Pastor Alexander in Belarus. During June, we hold a tent camp. This year—as in every year—we were getting ready and praying about it. Then the unexpected happened. The sauna, barn, and garage burned down late in the evening. Maryna asked me if we would still have the camp and I responded in the negative. Nevertheless, the Lord had other plans in mind.

A Door Closes for God to Open Another

Even though Russian Christmas was six months ago, we still continue to get wonderful reports from SGA-sponsored missionary pastors about the fruit of Immanuel’s Child outreaches that were held. Not long ago, we received a moving one from Ukraine and Pastor Vadim Adelfin, who describes how God sovereignly moved to open ministry doors after one seemed closed.

2016-2017 Immanuel’s Child Report

We are thankful to the Lord—and to you, our faithful partners—for yet another tremendous season of children’s ministry through the SGA-sponsored Immanuel’s Child (IC) Christmas outreach. Here are some excerpts from some of the wonderful reports we have received. May you be encouraged as you read!

Immanuel’s Child in Ukraine

Reports are continuing to come in from Immanuel’s Child Christmas ministries across the Commonwealth of Independent States. As SGA-sponsored missionary Pastor Vladimir Kachmarchyk reported recently, the giving of gifts on Christmas is a relatively new concept in his region, but the Lord used them to open the door for the Gospel.
