Russian children are faced with many problems that
affect them socially, economically as well as psychologically.
One easily identifiable problem is the increase in
the number of children growing up without dual parental
Often fathers will leave their family because of alcohol
or because of their own moral collapse. When this happens,
mothers then have the dual responsibility to be the
"bread winner" as well as parental figure.
Good paying employment in Russia is scarce and for a
women even more elusive.
These children have difficulties maturing as they have
not had good role models to follow. Time and again they
become victims of alcohol or drugs and the vicious cycle
Russian Missions is trying to change that. We are pioneering
a program of ministering to children from single-parent
Our missionaries are trained to be good parental mentors--not
just to educate these children about the Bible--but
to encourage and teach these children that with a profession
(i.e. carpentry, computers, etc.) these children can
go into the world and create a healthy, loving life
for themselves and share the Good News of the Gospel.
Although in its infant stage itself, this ministry
has already proven to be very fruitful.
