50 Years of Prayer and Mission


“I have no-one else like him, who takes a genuine interest in your welfare” (Phil 2:20)
{ChildAid’s 50th year verse}

It is now 50 years since we began providing spiritual, material and practical support for the persecuted church in the Soviet Union. I often wonder what our founders and early day supporters would think about the continuing need for our existence – and for this to be needed as much as ever.

We do not, and cannot, rest in and on our history. As this 250th edition of our newsletters explains there are three new initiatives we are pursuing: support in Kherson, neo-natal ward in Moldova, and Bibles for everyone within our care. We also hope that this autumn will see the school in Valcinet, Moldova be able to teach practical science lessons with the new equipment we have been able to fund. It is a privilege to be able to extend our support in these ways.

As we begin to look forward to Christmas, now is the time we send you our Christmas Card catalogue. Not as many people send cards now. With our cards still at 2003 prices, and the offer of discounted stamps we hope that either the new designs, or some old ones, will encourage you to break the trend and to send Christmas and good wishes to friends and family. When doing so, why not also send them an “alternative gift” from our new catalogue?

Thank you for the kind comments sent concerning our 50 years’ journey through prayers and Bible verses. Please do let us know if you have not received this booklet and that you would like us to send you a copy.

With blessings.
