Public benefits

Purpose 1 – to proclaim and further the Gospel of God concerning his son Jesus Christ Our Lord and the preaching and teaching of the Christian Faith throughout Russia. The direct benefits which flow from this purpose include people hearing the gospel and gaining an understanding that God loves each one of them no matter of who they are, and that

He can save them from their sin. These benefits can be demonstrated by men, women, boys and girls having their lives transformed by the power of the God in their lives. Their lives will be changed to now live according the teaching of the Bible which encourages each of them to become good citizens. The beneficiaries of this purpose are anyone and everyone. No matter if they are old or young, rich or poor the gospel can change anyone’s life. Purpose 2 – the relief of poverty, sickness, hardship or distress among the people of Russia by the supply and transport of humanitarian aid. The direct benefits which flow from this purpose include people will not need to live in the dumps or live their life relying on others for money. We will help to get them a job, get them a home or a room to live in and continually teaching from the Bible which is key. These benefits can be demonstrated by seeing less people living in the dumps and seeing people being able to support themselves through being employed. The beneficiaries of this purpose are mainly those people who do have not much (whether that be money, accommodation, clothes, employment) and help to make them self-dependent. Purpose 3 – to advance education and the Christian religion among children from Russia by the provision of facilities and equipment, including financial assistance, and the provision of holidays in Northern Ireland. The direct benefits which flow from this purpose include seeing Christians grow in their faith as they study the Bible more through teaching, either in Russia or whilst they come for a short period in Northern Ireland, which also aids their biblical knowledge but also helps in their English speaking. These benefits can be demonstrated by seeing people becoming more mature in the things of God and being able to understand and teach the Bible. Then when they come to Northern Ireland, we will be able to hold a conversation with them in English, as their English language continues to grow. The beneficiaries of this purpose are anyone and everyone. No matter if they are old or young, rich or poor the gospel can change anyone’s life. There is no harm flowing from the purposes of our charity. There is no private benefit flowing from the purposes.
