Publishing:Each year, Mission Eurasia prints and distributes a variety of specially designed Scripture pieces in Russian, Ukrainian, and other national languages for the people of Eurasia. In 2021-2022, a total of 1,493,529 copies of Scripture were printed and distributed primarily to the victims of war from Ukraine. Scripture versions included New Testaments, My First Bible, Action Bible New Testament, Gospels of John, Light magazine, and Hope magazine. In addition, we printed and distributed 1,054,830 copies of Christian literature (other than Scripture) to the people of Ukraine, including Keys for Kids devotional for children, Unlocked devotional for teens, and the Molitvoslov prayer guides. In addition, Mission Eurasia helped to cultivate a Next Generation of Christian authors within Eurasia through our National Christian Authors Series. Through this program, we oversaw the publication and distribution of titles that enable young leaders in Eurasia to present solutions to the challenges facing the evangelical church and society at large in their homeland. We also used these titles in our SWW program, NGPLI conferences, and pastoral training seminars.
School Without Walls (SWW)/Next Generation Professional Leaders Initiative (NGPLI):Mission Eurasia uses these flexible, non-formal leadership training programs to equip Next Generation Christian leaders in Eurasia and Israel to transform their communities, workplaces, and nations for Christ. More specifically, SWW and NGPLI provide Next Generation leaders and young professionals with biblical wisdom, leadership training, and practical, hands-on ministry experience. In 2021-2022, Mission Eurasia trained 1,814 young leaders from 13 countries in Eurasia and Israel through SWW. In addition, the SWW program expanded to Poland through which 45 young leaders were trained. In 2021-2022, NGPLI trained thousands of young professionals, including medical professionals and trauma counselors, to provide physical assistance and trauma healing for the people of Ukraine suffering from the war in their homeland.
