Through the Winter ~ A Children’s HopeChest Campaign and Ministry to Russian Orphans

Through the WinterIf you like the book, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis, and have a heart to help orphans in Russia, here is a perfect opportunity for you!  Children’s HopeChest wants to provide every child (over 1,000) in their Russian orphan program with a Russian copy of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, to use in coordination with a new evangelism and discipleship curriculum to teach orphans about the love of Jesus Christ.

Russian Lion Witch WardrobeTom Davis, CEO of Children’s HopeChest, says this about the plight and needs of orphans in Russia

Orphans in Russia are abandoned by their parents, robbed of protection, and scorned by society. Too many children carry the scars of abuse at the hands of those who are supposed to protect and love them. There is a coldness in their eyes. A window into the winter they experience.

If there is anything a child in Russia needs, it is the fierce and unrelenting love of Christ to melt the snow and thaw the ice of this winter. They need a lion and a champion. Someone whose love is boundless and untamed.


When you donate $30, you are assisting Children’s HopeChest in reaching these three goals

  1. Purchasing a personal, Russian-language copy of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe for every child.
  2. Creating a brand new curriculum for the kids using characters and themes from the book to teach them about Jesus.
  3. Funding a staff training for every Russian discipleship team member.

Please help show the love of Christ to these orphans!  Read more about Through the Winter here andmake a donation here.  And if you’ve never read this excellent book, buy a copy of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe for yourself here!
