Story number 4 for 1 May 2000

By May 1, 2000

We turn next to Russia where indigenous churches are looking for ways to help support their ministries. Send International’s Dwayne King says they’re providing churches with sawmills. He says these churches are starting businesses, which is providing the income they need. “The concern that we’ve had for a number of years is that we help the Russian church to be more supportive of themselves. To diminish the affects of dependency we’ve really worked hard at this to try to give them ways in which they can support their own churches.” According to King, because of the poor economy, the need is great for these types of programs. “This is a growing trend and every church is asking for ideas, instruction and training in different businesses and different kinds of work that they can become more self- sufficient.”
