Today, I would like to recommend a ministry for your prayerful support—Slavic Gospel Association, which has served evangelical churches across Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and the former Soviet countries of Central Asia since 1934. The website is linked here and I encourage you to check it out. 

SGA supports Russian-language Bible training through sponsorship of several evangelical seminaries and Bible institutes. They provide Russian-language Bibles and Christian literature, ministry to children including orphans, sponsor Christian summer camps for children, sponsorship of missionary pastors/church planters, and so much more. 

One of the things I appreciate so much about SGA is their attention to sound doctrine and the careful handling of God's Word. Prayer is also a key emphasis. The founder of the mission, Peter Deyneka, Sr., was known for his motto: "Much Prayer, Much Power. Little Prayer, Little Power. No Prayer, No Power." Above all, as you'll see, the "G" in the logo stands for Gospel, and the Gospel is central. 

So please, when you get an extra moment or two, browse SGA's website, and consider sending a gift. Russia and Ukraine have been back in the news, and it has largely been negative press. But the churches are not the government, and they are proclaiming the ultimate solution to the problems of their countries—repentance and saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. They need your prayers and ongoing support now more than ever.
