“You
are helping us by praying for us. Then many people will give thanks because God
has graciously answered many prayers for our safety” (2 Corinthians 1:11).
Dear Friends,
I just returned from a
long missionary trip to Ukraine and Belarus with rich impressions and gratitude
for your prayers. While there, thousands of young people dedicated themselves
to ministry—what more joyful sight could there be?
With the participation of our key speakers, the well-known
Christian writer Philip Yancey and Dr. John Bernbaum, we held nine events in
Kyiv and Minsk, which gathered more than 3,000 participants. The Forum of Young
Christian Professionals in Minsk was a major event. Only a year ago, we could
not believe that this would be possible. Belarus is often called the last
Soviet dictatorship in Europe and is known for its severe restrictions on
religious freedom. No one even knew whether this forum would take place. We
were ready for a variety of scenarios, but your prayers have given us victory.
Now hundreds of young leaders will carry out a vision of missions in their
professional fields, transforming their workplaces and nations for Christ and
His Kingdom.
Thank you for being an important part of this ministry and its impact. 
We look forward to continuing our partnership in order to advance the ministry
initiatives of Mission Eurasia.  
On behalf of our entire
Mission Eurasia team (you can find our team on the picture), hundreds of forum participants
from Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Moldova, and Lithuania, and School Without Walls
coordinators from 14 different countries of Eurasia and Israel, I want to say,
“Thank you!”
I also want to say, “Thank
you” on behalf on my family, who were waiting for me for 17 days and who were comforted
and encouraged by your prayers. 
In appreciation for
your prayers and the amazing ways God has answered those prayers, I would like
to ask you to pray for our upcoming winter ministry projects. We plan to
collect and present Gifts of Hope for 100,000 children and needy families in
the most difficult places of Eurasia this Christmas season. Will you join us in
prayer for the Gift of Hope project?
