Jesus, Ukraine, and the Soviet Union: Duane Early

A revival in Ukraine in the 90s laid the foundation for today’s Christian response.

Jesus Among the Soviets: Duane Early on Russia, Ukraine, and God’s Faithfulness

Around the time that the Soviet Union fell, Ukraine experienced massive spiritual revival. Duane Early, who served there as a missionary, is convinced that’s part of the reason Ukraine is being targeted today.

In this interview, he explains the current situation in Ukraine, miracles that happened during that revival, lessons learned, and missiological takeaways that can be applied anywhere.

To help missionaries meet Ukrainian refugees’ needs and share the gospel to those affected by the war, support the Ukraine Crisis Fund.
