Prayer and Praise partnered with Pastor Dave Hackett and the Christian Hope Center in Painted Post, New York in 1998 to begin a mission work in Rivne, Ukraine. Each year Pastor Larry and Pastor Dave journey to Rivne to train young men and women in the Rivne Bible Institute in how to spread the gospel throughout Eastern Europe. While in Ukraine, they also minister in local churches, support local pastors, finance projects for the institute and local churches, and help needy children.
Several years ago, we provided a tractor for a Ukranian pastor. He used the tractor as an evangelistic outreach tool by plowing gardens for free for people in his community. Because of his love and sacrificial giving, a number of people have been saved and have become a part of his church.
