Jesus came to Earth to serve, not to be served. Following His example, our graduates have also gone to different parts of Ukraine, Russian & Cuba - to help people, to preach to them and to manifest the love of Christ in practical deeds. This year we had nine missionary groups who were sent out for different periods of time: from two to six months.
The work done was very diverse: missionaries did street evangelism, social events, established Christian youth clubs, organized a medical clinic in the Kiev region, as well as visited the sick and the elderly. For the first time we sent a group specifically for children’s ministry, which traveled from village to village where our long-term missionaries are working, and organized children’s camps. Within two months they organized seven camps, the theme being “Who Am I?. This topic talked about how every child is special to God.
One of the most effective methods of evangelism became English Club, which was organized by our students. Such classes became an opportunity to meet local people, and with time, to share Christ on a personal level.
Today we can testify that new people are coming to salvation, that God is granting favor with authorities in local places, and that new churches are being build - and all of this is only by the grace of God!

Many people wonder how a ministry such as SMBS can sustain itself.
