world children are being abandoned, falling through the
cracks of a political safety net, the most precious
commodity of our societies is being abandoned and broken.
In the Former Soviet Union is our most glaring example.
Tens of thousands of children are left in urban cities with
the promise that their parents would soon return only to be
left alone to fend for themselves. You can imagine their
trauma, sense of rejection and brokenness. We have
personally seen eight year olds taking care of two year
olds. These nations are not in the Tropics. With
temperatures ranging in the winter from minus -20 F to
-minus -50 F. Children crawl into the sewers where hugging
a hot water pipe can make the difference between life and
death for these little ones.
Ministries International using hundreds of volunteers
from local churches is making an eternal difference. Not
only are we conducting feeding programs through the local
church daily but de-licing, providing overnight shelters and
showers and rehabilitation centers which wean them off of
drugs, separate them from the gangs that maraud in the
streets and found them in the FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST. After
they are stabilized, they are grafted into local Church
Bodies, foster homes and Christian orphanages. Jesus said,
'If you have ministered to these, the least of His little
ones, you have ministered directly to Christ'.
Federal Orphanage system that is totally bankrupt, children
are dumped on the streets at age 16 with the clothing on
their back and the equivalent of five dollars in their local
currency in their pocket. One out of every five street
children commit suicide within two years of their release
from orphanages or the "Internot" (Political orphanages).
Two out of every five wind up in prison for stealing or
other more violent crimes. One out five are a health
burden, due to diseases they have contracted either while in
the orphanages or on the streets. One out of five makes a
living because of outside assistance from family, friends or

for whom Jesus died. With a little bit of vocational
training, a lot of TLC (Tender Loving Care), and the
covering and caring of a local church, we have seen these
precious lives turn around and become participants and
productive in their society as doctors, lawyers, teachers,
engineers, housewives, and factory workers. All they need
is someone to believe in them and tangibly show that
For $30.00 a
month, or less than one dollar a day, our volunteers make

the grace. By this we partner together. Our funds with the

Thank you for partnering with us to the nations in giving

Our churches in the Far East have planted several new churches
among the Chinese communities and have strategically involved
themselves in distributing Scriptures through the back door of
Siberia and the Islamic Republics into China.
We at Impact
Ministries International have access to full study Chinese,
hard bound Bibles for $3.00 each or we still have continued
access for Chinese New Testaments, plus Psalms & Proverbs for
.25 cents each. It is crucial that we get a large supply of
Scriptures into China before the August, Olympic Games in
Beijing. We have information that would indicate a massive
closure to church access, Bible production and Western
involvement immediately after the Olympic Games. These two
purge campaigns by the Communist Regime are titled:
"TYPHOON 5" is in full force which is the capturing and
imprisoning house cell group leaders which make up 75% of the
Chinese Christian Church.
"TYPHOON 6" will not be initiated until after the Olympic
Games. It is rumored that even foreigners teaching English as a
second language will be expelled out of China after the
Olympics. While we still have access to being able to deliver
up to 300,000 Chinese New Testaments at a time, we at Impact
Ministries want to exclusively focus on these

you for your Sacrificial giving in the past, your prayers for
the present and we are trusting God for your partnering with us
for the future of millions to be affected for Eternity.

for new converts and personal linking to the local church.

short years ago, Sara was invited to a Mexican Woman's
Conference, hosted by the Methodist Churches in Monterrey,
Mexico. When she was asked if she could speak to the
pastors and bishop of the Methodist Movement as well as the
ladies, Sara was overwhelmed. That is when she requested
her husband, Richard to join her. This began a venture and
new chapter in missions and ministry for us that we never
anticipated nor did we see it coming.
airport when Ruth and Ignacio picked us up in a church van,
they asked us permission to pray over us. Their prayer
within minutes transitioned to prophecy. We had not yet
left the parking lot of the airport and due to traffic, it
took us 45 minutes to get to the hotel conference center.
For the full 45 minutes, the prophetic word of God flowed
and God personally read our mail. Sara and I wept as we
heard line upon line what we had offered privately in
prayer, was now being echoed by the Holy Spirit, in the same
order of priority that we had placed upon those prayer
Upon arriving at the hotel, we didn't need handkerchiefs, we
needed "mops" for the profused flow of tears that had fallen
from our eyes. Ruth said, "There is one more thing." My
response was, "I don't think we can handle one more thing."
Hearing me and yet ignoring me, she proceeded to tell us a
story that changed our lives. She said, "My father was a
missionary in Chapas, the poorest area in Mexico, among the
Indians near the Guatemalan border. Here, he saw a vision
forty five years ago and these are his exact words, "In
the END OF DAYS a missionary couple from Russia will
come to Mexico. She is Russian, Jewish and he is Polish,
German with blue eyes and God will use this couple to be an
agent of stirring revival in many of the churches in Mexico,
taking teams from Mexico to the ends of the Earth."'
I will never forget sister Ruth's finger pointing back to my
seat and saying, "Richard & Sara, you are the fulfillment of
that prophetic word to my father."
began to spin, thinking if this happened forty five years
ago, I would have been just a boy of age 12 and Sara would
have been 8 years old, still living in China. God has been
so faithful to us over the years and we are today seeing
this word come to pass.
given Sara and I a baptism of love for the Latino's like we
have shared with the Slavic people for over thirty seven
years. God has made us a mother and father in "Israel" to
these precious ones. We have taken some of them already on
mission's trip to Ukraine and have many more trips planned
together for the future.
printing some of our books in Spanish and are being warmly
received in numerous denominations and Fellowships across
the entirety of Mexico. A land where men are "Macho" but
God is melting them to the degree that some nights you
almost need to mop up the floors in the services for
brokenness and tears of calling to missions and being called
away from their sins. Their pastors tell us that they have
never seen this kind of brokenness in this magnitude
before. This phenomena is God's doing and not our own.
the heart of Sara and I the most is seeing a breath of the
Holy Spirit come upon a younger generation of children,
teens, high school and college youth. God is touching them
so mightily in the services where we have been ministering
that they are seeing visions and receiving mighty outpouring
of the Holy Spirit, receiving powerful healings and most of
all being called of God to a higher realm of holiness and
service in God's Kingdom.
While in Mexico a few
months ago, we had Missions Congress with the Kings Castle
Denomination where we shared 34 times in 14 days. The
prophetic Word that came to my heart is that, "No longer
will Mexico play second fiddle in Latin America, no longer
will it be said that God is moving in Argentina or Brazil,
but God is moving in Mexico, and Mexico is moving in
response to God to the ends of the Earth."

Even as we
speak, a forty-foot container is being finalized for
shipping to the Ukraine. Its vital contents is valued at
over a quarter million dollars in medical supplies, food
relief, vitamins and new clothing apparel for children in
orphanages and the poor in needy.
This will be
followed by a second container as soon as our volunteer
labors from the Russian Church in Bellingham finish loading
it. Its primary contents will be dehydrated soup in 55
gallon drums; each drum capable of producing 7,000 liters of
soup. It will also be accompanied with children's back
packs, targeting orphanages and possibly a shipment of 6,000
pairs of new boots donated by a warehouse in Texas.
on the high-seas is covered by U.S. Aid Fund, but the
transportation within the Ukraine, loading and unloading the
goods, repackaging and distribution to the point of need,
all has to be covered by Impact Ministries and New Manna
Ministries. Our staff and volunteers often take a short
leave of absence from work to do these labor intensive
projects. Supporting our staff and their immediate family
during these times of sacrifice becomes very important in
that some of them come from large families themselves and
can't afford the time off from work.
OF THE MONTH IS FEEDING THE CHILDREN AND GIVING THEM GIFTS
IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, JESUS CHRIST.
These gift packets open a door for our churches to make
return visits to these government run orphanages, bringing
in, in many areas a weekly Sunday School Program and
continuous visitation and participation from believers in
support is so vital in these early weeks of the New Year.
Christmas in the Ukraine and Russia just finished, January

make its presence known to the community. Any offering you
send to IMPACT MINISTRIES and mark it on the memo line:

We work with the
Palace of Culture in Perm with Pastor Edik. They have
established 346 churches in Russia, Siberia, Islamic Republics,
Afghanistan and China within the last 15 years since
Perestroika. They have a Bible School with approximately 165
students who after two years of training are sent to a new
church plant, most of the time. Impact Ministries works in
conjunction with The New Testament Church in Perm with Pastor
Edik with church planting, purchasing Bibles, New Testaments for
China and Russia; as well as with many orphanages in the Perm
Ministries International, together with New Manna
Ministries, their affiliate ministry has their own orphanage
in Perm, Russia, not to mention they conduct a camp for the
orphans and poor, needy children that usually lasts for
several weeks at a time during the summer months. Every year,
they have seen over 400 children at these camps, not only
dedicate their lives to Christ, but these children are changed,
loved and helped in many ways.
