Turning our Passion into Action Banquet 2019
November 7 | 7 PM
The board of directors of Byelorussian Mission would like to invite you to the 2019 Turning Our Passion I Action Banquet Fundraiser, celebrating Jesus and our goal of raising $100,000. The money will support our Orphan Sponsorship Program, Pastor Leadership Training Conferences, print Bibles and discipleship materials and continued construction of four churches and the Hope Camp for orphans.
The acclaimed Belorussian band Spasenie will be joining us for this year’s Byelorussian Mission banquet. Spasenie is one of only a few Christian bands from Belarus. Their name “Spasenie” is Russian for the word “salvation”. Over the last 30 years they have brought hope to the people of Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, and other former nations of the Soviet Republic, by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in song and word. Spasenie is responsible for planting a Belarusian church called, appropriately, “Spasenie Church”, which currently has 1200 members. Spasenie has received the nomination for “Best European Music” at the Just Plain Folks International Music Festival. They have 15 albums to their credit, and we are delighted to have them with us this year.
