Eastern European Missions provides Bibles to former communist countries such as Russia and the Ukraine. With God’s handiwork the organization has been able to have the Bible incorporated as a teaching tool in the education system of the schools in Russia. As opportunities have become more difficult in Russia, doors have opened in the Ukraine. This year EEM was asked to provide a camp program teaching Bible based character traits and lessons for life in the Youth Camps of the Ukraine. These were once the Youth Communism Summer Camps and host two million children throughout the summer. A team from South Fork will travel to Ukraine to teach for two weeks this summer.

In Nigeria, the African Christian Hospital has been serving the Lord by providing much needed health care to the extremely poor Biafran region for decades. This year, two groups from South Fork will travel to Nigeria to assist and train the physician missionary team working in this hospital. South Fork also supports mission work in Panama and in a host of other countries through summer college student mission work.
