Russia and the Caucasus

Nationals Taking a Stand

Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, periods of unrest have changed the cultural landscapes of Russia and the Caucasus. A blend of cultures and false religions characterizes these regions … resulting in a desperate need for Jesus Christ.

Persecution plagues the believers of the Caucasus. A wide variety of people groups populate the expanse of this region—requiring a wide range of unique strategies to reach the people.

But despite the trials believers are facing, nationals are taking a stand for their countries … in the Caucasus and in Russia.

Nationals in Russia are passionate about reaching the lost. East-West has been transitioning our ministry there into the hands of the Russian believers over the last few years. The goal of having a national-led and sustained ministry is becoming a reality in this region.

Victory Over AddictionVictory over addiction

Viktor spent many years with a strong, drug addiction … but he didn’t want to be a slave to toxic substances anymore. Fortunately, his government provided affordable treatment, and he eagerly took advantage of it.

After months of treatment, Viktor found himself still searching for the feeling that only drugs had brought him. His treatment was proving useless, and he had never been more discouraged. Until one day, an evangelist shared with him the hope that Jesus Christ could bring—for breaking his addiction and for the rest of his life.

Viktor sat in tears taking every word the evangelist had to say to heart. This was the message he had been waiting for. Immediately, he surrendered his life to Christ and found the feelings of peace and joy that he had sought all of his life.

Now Viktor is an evangelist himself … reaching out to those in government drug treatments to share with them a message of true hope in Jesus Christ.
