Our Work

Changing Culture

Imagine this...
You’re 16, an orphan, homeless, and living on the streets in one of the poorest countries in Eastern Europe.

When the call came from Moldova to help real kids like this, Hope Bible Institute in rural Moldova responded and has become an oasis of Christian compassion, care, and training for 36 at-risk Moldovan teens. There, the Bible is taught, life skills are developed, and all students are mentored in a trade. However, Hope’s small library is totally inadequate. That's why READ has committed to provide this ministry $3,000 for essential textbooks and other resources to help evangelize and disciple these hope-hungry Moldovan teens. Your gifts can make it happen.

How else is READ helping?

Another call came from Pastor Viktor, one of READ's ministry partners, asking for help. He's responding to the request of the Department of Education for the Dnipro region to place copies of “The Camel Story—A Trilogy” in each elementary classroom in the region. You can do the math—5,000 classrooms where the story of Jesus birth, death, and resurrection is wanted and welcomed by public school officials in southern Ukraine. Wow!

Opening Doors for People with Special Needs


Very few of the churches in the former Soviet Union are handicap accessible. There are no ramps, expanded isles, bathrooms, or openings for wheelchairs. This area of the world is just beginning to understand that a person with a handicap has value. READ is on the front lines of this cultural change.

Board member Oksana Elsinger has a child with a handicap and is from Ukraine. She has been a valuable part of READ's expansion into this important area of the world.

David Anderson wrote a book called “Reaching out and Bringing In—Ministry to and with Persons with Disabilities,” teaching the church how to open their arms to people and children with handicaps. READ now provides a copy of this book to all conference attendees and others in Ukrainian and Russian languages.

These are just a handful of projects READ has pioneered to saturate the culture with Gospel values.
