In May 2010, the team will embark on a three-week ministry in this former Soviet republic which is now enjoying a measure of freedom for the spread of the gospel. We will be working primarily with Ron Putnam and Slavic Christian Ministries in the city of Kharkiv, about 20 miles from the Russian border, in northeastern Ukraine, for approximately half of the three-week period. The other half will be spent with John Townsend of Mission Valley Community Chapel, whose "Matthew 25:34-40" ministry has a work going in the city of Dniperdzerzhyns'k. While in Kharkiv, we also hope to have opportunity to supplement the teaching ministry of Dr. Cheryl Fawcett, a missionary of Shadow Mountain Community Church, who will also be in Ukraine in May, including Kharkiv, the very city where VISION is planning to serve. VISION's ministry will include evangelistic programs in public schools, orphanages, civic cultural centers, outdoor venues, and churches. They will interact with Ukrainian high school and university students, sharing Christ with nonbelievers and encouraging believers.
