One of the most formative experiences of my life was having the opportunity to study and travel in Europe for an entire semester while in college through a studies-abroad program at Oklahoma Christian University. Our “home base” during that time was Vienna, Austria, and that’s where I became acquainted with Eastern European Mission (EEM).
EEM is an organization dedicated to providing the Word of God to the people of Russia, Ukraine, and Eastern Europe in the their own languages. They believe in the transforming power of God’s Word, so their simple approach is to get the Bible in the hands of people and let God work in their lives through His Word.
The results of this mission have been astounding. For example, EEM has placed Bibles in 50% of the public schools in the nation of Ukraine! Now, EEM is providing the Bible to refugees in Farsi and Arabic languages – and the demand for the Bible from these people is so great that it’s been difficult to keep up.
Thousands and thousands of people from non-Christian countries have become and are becoming Christians because of being able to read the Bible for themselves.
I’ve had the great pleasure of meeting some of these people and hearing some of their stories. That’s why I have been a supporter of EEM ever since I was a college student.
Below is a video that explains what EEM does. Please take a few minutes to watch it. And if you’d like to know more visit their website here.
If you’re in the Oklahoma City area, I would encourage you to attend the EEM dinner on the campus of Oklahoma Christian University on April 4th. You can register here.

The Bible. We want everyone to get it.
