Wars and Rumors of War
“What would you do if bombs suddenly started falling in your neighborhood?”
You’d get out, right?
And look for someplace safe.
Within the last month, more than 3 million people have fled the war in Ukraine trying to find a safe haven in Europe. Mission One Eleven stepped in and invited 31 of those families to Mission One Eleven’s training Center in Västanås Sweden.
“There’s no better way to demonstrate Christ’s love than to show and give compassion in someone’s time of desperate need,” said Mikael Boman, Executive Director of Mission One Eleven’s training center in Västanås Sweden.
We have an immediate need!
Currently Sweden has received over 250,000 Ukrainians refugees. Mission One Eleven is stepping up to the challenge and has opened our Mission One Eleven Campus! We are now housing 31 of those refugee families, and that number will likely increase soon. Most of these people are women and children, one is a cancer patient trying to continue her treatment here. We are personally buying food and supplies. WE NEED YOUR HELP, WE NEED YOUR MONEY AND WE NEED YOUR PRAYERS

What can I do?
The most urgent need is money. We are currently paying out of pocket all the costs of feeding and housing these refugees. Any amount you give will go directly to that.
I can pray…
Everyone can pray for a quick resolution for the war to end. But we should be mindful that it may take many years for some of the families to be restored. We are also praying that through our example, these families might find new hope in Christ.
Some may have the ability to actually go to Sweden to help. If you have this ability and are willing to cover your own expenses we would like to have a conversation with you to see if your skillset would be a good fit.
Mission One Eleven Training Center
Our work with unreached and unengaged people groups demands a constant need to travel to places that are inaccessible by conventional means. As a ministry, we feel the need to train up helicopter pilots, mechanics.
Our base operations will meet the expanding needs of Mission One Eleven expeditions, scouting, locating tribes, escorting missionaries, ferrying teams, relief efforts, rescue operations, and missions service.
We take ‘The Assignment’ seriously!
Our program searches, finds, and then mobilizes and equips Mission One Eleven teams to go and reach these unreached people groups.
We believe in “One Chance for Every Person”
No matter where they live or how hard to get to.

Why a helicopter?
Of all the travel methods our teams use to get to the far reaches of the earth, Helicopters are sometimes the only way to reach them.
Often we hear, “If you’ve known this good news, why has no one ever come to tell us?”
