Foundation and history of the International Public Organisation "Hope to People"

As a result of deep economic and socio-political crisis, the Soviet Union has suddenly started to change in the late 1980s. Suddenly Christians received opportunities, which they were not expecting and did not count on. After a long period of being forbidden, restrictions, and persecution suddenly came freedom, freedom to openly preach the Gospel. New time began.

On the 7th of January, 1989 in Zdolbuniv (town in Rivne region) during the celebration of Christmas, an informal meeting took place among brothers in Christ, during which the idea about the establishment of the mission was first voiced. The mission goal is to spread the Gospel and establish new churches among the nations, which live in the territory of Soviet Union.

From the first days, Anatoliy Nazaruk, Sergei Tupchyk, Aleksej Melnychuk, Sergei Tymchenko, Vitaliy Nazaruk and Taras Prystupa were part of the creation process. Gradually, more and more new people were joining this group, mainly young, 25-35 years old. Christians from older generations played an important role in the establishment of the mission. They were wise mentors, the inspiration and the first people to pray about it. They are Francis A. Shumeyko, Alexander G. Nazaruk and Vasily D. Bondarenko.

On 25 February 1989, again in the same Zdolbuniv, establishment assembly of Missionary Society "Light of the Gospel" took place. Its ministry was successfully developing and growing during the first three years, till the collapse of the Soviet Union. During this period, missionary work started in Yakutia, Primorskij Kraj, Tuva, Kalmikija, Kamchatka, Chukotka, Ural, Povolzhje, Moscow, Karachaevo-Cherkesyy, as well as in various regions of Ukraine. About this time is possible to say that "the word of God grew and multiplied", emerged new churches. This new experience has become a big blessing for young Christians. It also was the impulse for development of missionary ministry on the territory of the Soviet Union for the whole Church of Christ.

In September of 1990, Rivne city council officially registered the missionary Society "Light of Gospel."
