On the coast of the Black Sea just south of Sochi, Russia sits the small independent state of Abkhazia.
Few countries recognize its indepedence and few people know of its existence, yet the spiritual and physical needs in Abkhazia are great. Through partnership with churches in Sochi, SOAR became aware that this tiny region of 450,000 includes only about 300 Christians and a few small churches struggling to survive. The head pastor over the Sochi churches also oversees the churches in Abkhazia and has asked for SOAR's help as they seek to assist the churches in Abkhazia.
In October, SOAR sent a team to Abkhazia to assist the Evanglical church in a camp for handicapped children. They ministered to over 40 children and their caretakers through physical therapy, rest and felllowship, and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord for this fantastic ministry!
