Why do we send teachers to Ukraine and Russia?

Our students go where we cannot go!

Keep praying! Thank you for giving.

One of our former students was teaching in North Korea. His identity we don’t share for obvious reasons. When I asked him if he feared punishment, he said no, because he is a Russian citizen and is therefore protected. I visited the DMZ; that is as far as allowed, whereas he can share and love in the name of Jesus. He goes where we cannot go.

If with heart and soul you’re doing good, do you think you can be stopped? Even if you suffer for it, you’re still better off. Don’t give the opposition a second thought. Through thick and thin, keep your hearts at attention, in adoration before Christ, your Master. Be ready to speak up and tell anyone who asks why you’re living the way you are, and always with the utmost courtesy. Keep a clear conscience before God so that when people throw mud at you, none of it will stick. They’ll end up realizing that they’re the ones who need a bath. It’s better to suffer for doing good, if that’s what God wants, than to be punished for doing bad. That’s what Christ did definitively: suffered because of others’ sins, the Righteous One for the unrighteous ones. He went through it all—was put to death and then made alive—to bring us to God.
