Jeff Thompson Ukraine Update
In the below video, Mercy Projects President Jeff Thompson (r-side) shares about his January 2015 trip to Ukraine and some history to the on-going conflict in Eastern Ukraine. The message was given January 2015 in Murrieta, California. Jeff Thompson and his wife Paula started Mercy Projects (formerly Eastern European Outreach) in 1980 when they left the USA to smuggle bibles behind the Iron Curtain. Their exciting story told in the book “Leaving The American Sector” is available online at our website.
“The people there believe the Maidan revolution in 2014 in Kyiv was instigated by western “anti-Russian” foes. They watch Russian television and believe the propaganda stories reported there. Ukrainian Christians, however, are doing a remarkable job of meeting needs and sharing their faith despite the war and it’s hardships.” He continued.
