“EEM (Eastern European Mission) is a non-profit organization providing Bibles and Christian literature in languages of Eastern and Central Europe. The goal is to increase the knowledge of God’s Word and encourage development of Christian faith and values. The materials offered are available and completely free of charge to individuals, schools, libraries, prisons, orphanages, churches, and other entities in the region. This very important work is supported by benevolent donations of individuals from around the world.” (From the EEM Website)
The following Sunday, November 19th, we will have the opportunity to take part in a special contribution to help EEM to have more Bibles and related materials to give to those before-mentioned organizations in Eastern and Central Europe. Lives and souls will be changed through our generous contributions.
Ken Darnell will preach next Sunday night in the absence of Joe. Joe & Teri will be on their trip to Tennessee where they will pick up Teri’s brother, Patrick. Patrick will be making his home with Joe & Teri now.
Next Sunday morning, November 12th Monte Tuttle from Eastern European Missions will give us a report on the work that EEM is doing. Pray for the work that EEM is doing. For the elders, Ken D
Here is also some information from the EEM website about some books translated into the appropriate languages. Eastern European Mission offers a set of Bible-based materials designed to serve as resources for spiritual and moral education of children and teenagers. Our books are non-confessional in nature and used by parents and educators from a variety of Christian backgrounds. They simply focus on retelling the story of the Bible in a language appropriate for the age group while drawing attention to positive traits, principles, and actions that can help the youth develop a strong moral character for daily living.
Examples of the kinds of books:
Bible for Young Readers

Bible for You
“Bible for You” is a collection of biblical stories, with passages taken directly from the Holy Scriptures (in Hungarian, from the New Revised Translation (Revideált Új Fordítás) by Hungarian Bible Society (Magyar Bibliatársulat Alapítvány) and in Romanian from the Holy Bible, New Romanian Translation (Noua Traducere În Limba Română) by Biblica, Inc.). Each story is preceded by a short introduction and followed with 2-3 simple questions reflecting on the text. “Bible for You” is written for pre-teens and young teens (11-15 year olds) at their reading level.
