Missionaries Supported

St. James currently supports missionaries Mike and Olga Cantrell in Russia; we also support the work of the local pastors in Juamave, Mexico, and Podgorica, Montenegro. If you are interested in being a part of the ministry or would like to help sponsor them,  please call the office at St. James for more information at (706) 548-1680. 

Mike and Olga Cantrell work with orphans from in and around St. Petersburg Russia . They recently acquired property to use as a camp for orphaned children to have the opportunity to be in an outdoor setting and learn about the love of Jesus. This past summer campers came from many places in Russia to enjoy the upgraded campground and escape the 4 walls of the orphanage. Mike has also begun work in Montenegro with a small group of Christians who are trying to spread the word of God to a country where there are fewer than 200 evangelical Christians in a country with a population of approximately 700,000. St. James has been involved with this work or several years. Mike recently began working in Estonia with Russian orphans who live near the Russian border. These children have neither citizenship in Russia nor Estonia so they are basically children without a home or a country. St. James has sent one team to work in this area and has further trips planned in the future.
