Reaching out to a hurting world…
to the website of People to People Int’l (PTPI). The ministry was founded 1984 by Oliver and Ulla Lindberg and is the fulfillment of the vision given by God in 1978. The beginning of the vision says “I the Lord have called you for a special purpose; to support the pastors and churches in the Soviet Union and Eastern bloc countries”.
People to People International, since having received and acted upon the vision, have had and still has a huge impact upon the spiritual life of many of the Eastern bloc countries. During the years when these countries were under communist rule, evangelical activities were banned or severely restricted. The work that was done had to be done in strict secrecy.
Since the fall of the Iron Curtain the situation is entirely different.
These countries now have religious freedom, which in turn has enabled evangelical work in a completely open way. The vision given by God still remains as the core foundation and guiding principle for the work that is going on today, even though the needs we face are very different. Today PTPI works mainly in Poland, Romania and the Republic of Moldova.
Very much welcome !
