The breakup of the Soviet Union provided an unusual opportunity to Christians to take the gospel to that spiritually impoverished part of the world. Sponsored by West Angelo Church of Christ, Tim Johnson and his family began evangelistic work in Ukraine in the early 1990’s. Since that time, congregations have been established in Kiev and Sumy, and much good has been accomplished. The work is now directed by the Ukraine Mission Board with help from Westworth Church of Christ. Our involvement thus far has been limited to collecting funds via the Christmas Collection Cans furnished to us each fall (see “Special Activities”).
