At almost 7 million square miles, Russia is the largest country in the world, so you’d be forgiven if you didn’t know much about each of its many regions. One such region reaches from eastern Europe across the western stretch of Asia and touches the Pacific Ocean just north of China. This region is known as Far East Russia and is home to some of the coldest cities on the planet.

For a comparison, Far East Russia is almost the size of the United States but has five percent of the population. Joshua Project classifies most of Far East Russia as unreached; the evangelical population is below two percent.

Eric Mock of Slavic Gospel Association says the organization feels a sense of urgency to reach Russia with God’s Word. The ministry is pursuing this work through its Reach Russia Now Initiative.

“God has raised up in these areas faithful churches who have a heart to bring the Gospel to these towns and villages. And, it’s kind of exciting to see what we’re working with are first-generation believers who have a passion for the Gospel,” Mock says.

“It’s really a modern New Testament church that we are seeing develop.”
