Developing Materials and opening new doors:
Training and sending Ukrainian Missionaries – During the Soviet period, often the idea of sending cross-cultural missionaries was not possible for churches of Russia and Ukraine. During recent years the need to train, and then have Ukrainian churches, send out their own people as missionaries has taken on new urgency. For over twenty-five years our task has been to train Ukrainians to reach their own people with the gospel, but now much of our time is devoted to preparing Ukrainians to serve as foreign missionaries.
