VBC - God's Word For All, was established by Jan Hanvold in 1989 with a sub-department called VBC Aid. The vision was to spread the word of God and also contribute food, clothing, medicine, financial support and Christian literature to the worn out and poor in Eastern Europe. Jan Hanvold has been working in Eastern Europe ever since the late 1970s.

The work has grown steadily for several years. VBC sends around 30 aid shipments a year to Estonia, Georgia, Bulgaria, Moldova, Albania and Africa. There are over two consignments per. month.

Vision Norway with its emergency and mission work is located next to our TV station in Drammen. This work is possible because of our faithful viewers throughout Scandinavia. VBC emergency services want more hubs around Norway where we can pick up things that others need.

Contact us. Tell us how you can help bless others. We base our aid on what is stated in Matthew 25,35-36:


"I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after Me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. "

 

 

We need your support

The countries and areas where we serve

 

Moldova

We have sent regular supplies to Moldova and to Pastor Doru Cirdei, since 2000.

Pastor Doru runs a large church work, Bible school, supplements, systue and children's village called Bethany Christian Center. There was a small Russian summer school with ten like houses outside the capital Chisinau. This old Russian summer school has been transformed into a children's village. There are 120 children (12 children in each house). The children have a mother and a father through volunteer men and women in the congregation of Doru. They have dedicated their lives to helping orphaned street children to a better life. The children get care, love and attention. That way they can become useful citizens of society. Vision Norway has collected funds for building schools and repairing houses at Bethany Christian Center.

 

Georgia

Inga and Paata are our contacts in Georgia. They were saved in 1992 in a service with Jan Hanvold and VBC in Tver. The latter is approx. fifteen miles north of Moscow. Inga and Paata are half-Georgian and Russian. They once knew that they would return to Georgia and work with children who lived on the street. Vision Norway has helped them get started with the work. Since 2005 we have sent approx. two containers of food and clothing a year. Inga and Paata work out of his church in Tbilisi where Mamuka is a pastor.

Vision Norway has paid the new congregation room, but its capacity is already too small. We have also arranged things like showers, toilets, dining rooms and district heating at the orphanage in Tbilisi.

We send money to the orphanage every month. It gives them four soup stations. Inga and Paata are present in Tbilisi daily to ensure that the children receive food, clothing and integration at school. The other soup stations are located in Zugdidi (on the border to Abkashia), Bathumi (on the border to Turkey) and Gori, who was bombed when it broke out in the autumn of 2008.

 

 

Bulgaria

We have good contact through pastor Jimmy (Dimitar Luchev), who runs a great church in Stara Zagara.

The city is approx. three hours drive east of Sofia. They work a lot among gypsies and have weekly meetings and relief work among the gypsy churches throughout Bulgaria. Pastor Jimmy is the main coordinator for approx. 600 gypsy churches. Our work with Pastor Jimmy is a great blessing for the poor in Bulgaria.

 

 

Estonia

Our main contact in Estonia is Anatoly Plyushko. A lovely simple man with whom we have worked for over twenty years. He runs soup stations, leisure center and helps expelled and stateless Russians in the area around the Russian border in Estonia.

Every month we send food, clothes and miscellaneous equipment that benefit the poor. We also have a good cooperation with Pastor Maksim in Sillamä. He runs a small church there. Vision Norway has paid the church house. They expand and do amazing work with soup stations and help people with major disability problems. Most of the wheelchairs, sick beds and other equipment are sent here to Sillamä.

 

 

 

Albania

Missionary Unni Thorsen started a work in Shkodr for approx. 10 years ago. She had only been saved for three years when she was given a call to serve there.

She eventually brought Koli Puka, who is a pastor. He and Unni run church and help the poor in a dominant Muslim area. Every month we hear that work is progressing and people are saved.
