Search for “Russia” on Google, and you’ll see plenty of results about President Vladimir Putin’s war on Ukraine. Meanwhile, God’s people are on the move in this spiritually-hardened nation.

Last November, a coalition of Russian pastors asked for Scripture booklets from World Missionary Press. The pastors want to reach 25 million people across central Russia in 24 months and plan to use Scripture booklets in their outreach.

WMP had the booklets printed and ready to ship to Russia… and then Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24. “We still have that original container sitting here waiting to be shipped,” WMP’s Helen Williams says.

“The standard way of getting things in [to Russia] is blocked because of the ongoing war.”
