This project was funded through our Ukraine Relief Fund allowing our Ukrainian partners to encourage refugee children at Easter time.
In conjunction with Smirna Publishing, 3000 copies of The Easter Sparrows were printed and distributed to our Ukrainian partners, who could use them in their Easter programs. Our friends at Kremenchuk Evangelical Seminary/Spring of Life Baptist Church contacted and organized the distribution of the books to other partners in Kyiv, Dnipro, Tavrisk'y, Rivne, Ivano-Frankivsk, Vyshneve and Zaporizhzhya, as well as keeping some at KES.
The Easter Sparrows book has been used by READ Ministries for distribution since 2019. Michael Larson, the book's author, is from Clinton, MN. He has a love for teaching children about the outdoors and for sharing a Christian message. (View/purchase book here)
We are thankful that God provided this opportunity - through our donors to the relief fund - to share this Gospel through this lovely children's book to refugee children in Ukraine in their language.
One of our partners reported, "The children were very happy for this book." Another said, "A wonderful book that children started reading right on Easter!"
