Family from Ukraine with Gifts of Hope

Gift of Hope Winter Mission Trips

Locations: Ukraine or Moldova

Celebrate Orthodox Christmas (January 7) in Eurasia with national believers as you package and deliver special Gift of Hope boxes to children in need at orphanages, hospitals, churches, and schools. The weather will be cold, but the friendly culture and the smiles of joyful children will keep your heart and spirit warm. Each Christmas season our ministry partners and School Without Walls students in Eurasia hand-deliver Gift of Hope boxes—filled with toys, treats, and warm mittens—and storybook Bibles to thousands of hurting children, providing vital opportunities to pray for the children and their families, invite them to church, and share the gospel message. Next Christmas, you can take a hands-on role in delivering joy and hope—and the message of Jesus—to children and families in Moldova, one of Europe’s poorest countries.

Each trip is led by experienced Mission Eurasia staff and guides, and professional language interpreters will be available to facilitate communication. On this trip you’ll enjoy fellowship with national Christians and School Without Walls students, witness the life-changing ministry of Mission Eurasia firsthand, and take an active part in making Christmas a time of hope and joy for hundreds of children. This special trip is one you won’t want to miss! Individuals, families, groups, and churches are all welcome.
