(Russia)–Next, Russian churches need your help as they attempt to reach children with the Gospel. The Slavic Gospel Association has started what they’re calling “Emanuel’s Child” an effort to help Russian churches establish effective outreaches for children. SGA’s Michael Johnson says your gift of 25-dollars helps buy gifts, Bibles and humanitarian aid attracting children to church. “Over 90-percent of the children that come to these outreaches have never stepped foot in a church. They’ve never heard the Gospel. So, this is an opportunity for these kids to hear the Gospel for the very first time, and their families.
