Christmas celebrations aren’t over, yet.

By December 28, 2006

Russia (MNN)–Russian Christmas is on January 7. National Christians are packing 20,000 Christmas gift boxes and Christian literature for distribution amongst the poor in their communities.

According to Russian Ministries, along with the boxes they’re giving away, 300 churches are working together to plan special holiday outreach events. Other national workers will visit orphanages to share the love and joy of Christmas with needy children and young people. Teams are also slated to serve warm meals in soup kitchens, or caring for people with HIV/AIDS.

Whether large-scale events or individual acts of grace, the Gospel will be proclaimed in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova this Christmas.

According to Russian Ministries, at least 80,000 children will have opportunities to hear the Gospel through this program and others like it. However, there are some concerns over a shortfall in resources that could impact the number of packages they can give and how many programs they can share.
