This book will be an inspiration to you or someone you love.
It's the amazing story of Jeff and Paula Thompson, and their exploits in missions in Eastern Europe.
Jeff and Paula smuggled Bibles behind the Iron Curtain for 12 years during the Soviet era. Later Jeff preached many years in prisons across Russia. Today they lead an innovative child sponsorship program for at-risk children in Russia, Ukraine and Kosovo.
Rave reviews from appreciative readers
âExciting, as you journey with Jeff on the daring and dangerous missions into Eastern Europe and Russia to bring the word of God and other helpful materials to the believers inside the Iron Curtain. Inspiring, to see what God can do through the obedience and courage of one young man, willing to be led by the Spirit of God. Proof that The Acts of the Apostles is an unfinished book.â
Chuck Smith, Pastor

âThis is a page turner! I have known Jeff Thompson as a friend and founder of EEO for many years. His heart for the widow and orphan, and his determination to reach others with the Gospel of salvation has been clearly evident in a life vigorously lived for Christ. From the depths of despair of the abandoned orphan to the heights of KGB and Kremlin power, this book will inspire and inform you. It may change your life. This book has a very important message for the American church.â

âI highly recommend Jeff Thompsonâs book, Leaving The American Sector. It is an awe-inspiring story of how God calls and raises up modern heroes of the faith to share Godâs Word with oppressed people. Having partnered with Jeff and Eastern European Outreach since 1997, there is much more Jeff could have written about camps, children sponsorship, and educational scholarships. As Christians continue to reach out to people in need with Christâs love, the magnificence of the EEO story keeps unfolding.â

âI felt myself traveling with Jeff back behind the Iron Curtain to these distant lands. This book is packed with adventure and excitement and âcompassion that fails not.â Jeffâs God is an enormous God, faithful to the very end. Youâll be challenged to âlive onâ and realize at the end of each dayâŚGod is faithful! Jeff and Paula Thompson have an exciting story that will capture your attention and your heart."
