Missions in Eastern Europe

Kristin Jonas is preparing to serve the Lord in Ukraine with the mission agency ABWE (Association of Baptists for Worldwide Evangelism; abwe.org)  They have conservative theology and a heart for church planting, evangelism, and discipleship.  Serving the Lord Jesus overseas has been a heart’s desire of Kristin's since she was young.  Her passion is to see people of all nations, especially those in Eastern Europe, know, love, and worship Jesus.  

She will be joining the current team ABWE ( there on August 17th, and I will be serving in Kyiv (Kiev, the capital, in the north) for two years.  Ukraine, formerly part of the Soviet Union, is located in Eastern Europe and is bordered by Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova, and Russia. Her hope is to return to Ukraine permanently after two years to serve as a career missionary.

Kristin's ABWE team in Ukraine consists of the Gustafson family (serving in Kyiv), the Suko family (serving in Odessa), and a single lady around,Holly Friesen (serving in Odessa).  She is really excited about serving alongside them!  They love the Lord and have a heart for ministry!

Thus team’s desire is to partner with Ukrainians to plant and strengthen life-giving churches in Ukraine and beyond.  While there, Kristin will have the opportunity to serve in a local church called Renewal Baptist Church (led by Pastor Sasha), participate in evangelistic opportunities (such as English language ministry), assist in administrative ways with Kyiv Theological Seminary (ktsonline.org) and Church Ministries Institute (a church based theological education program for training pastors and church members; cmieurasia.org), minister to orphans, and encourage and disciple women.
