Baskets of Hope

Baskets of Hope

Easter is the most significant religious holiday in Russia, though few understand its true meaning. This special season provides a unique opportunity to share the Gospel message of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. During the Easter season, SOAR delivers hundreds of gift-filled Baskets of Hope and Bibles to needy children throughout Russia.

In 2005, a Russian church invited Richard Page, SOAR director, to minister to children and families that had endured extreme hardships. Many people in deep despair received the healing of God's love through compassion, the Gospel message, and the simple gift of an Easter basket. Hope is being rekindled through the Baskets of Hope project!
