East Europe Mail Ministry

From XFamily - Children of God

The East Europe Mail Ministry (aka MM Home or East European Christian Correspondence Center) was a semi-secret and sub-WS Home located in Leányfalu (north of Budapest near Visegrád), Hungary.

Karen Zerby and Steven Kelly asked Grant Montgomery to use Family Care Foundation (FCF) monies to finance two WS projects. The first was the East Europe Mail Ministry office in Hungary. For years this operation, staffed by Family members and funded by WS, had translated, printed, and mailed Family publications to hundreds of thousands of people in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. The second was a similar operation in Thailand.

Montgomery and Lawrence Corley agreed to Zerby and Kelly's request. To facilitate the process, both groups applied for and were immediately granted FCF project status. The East Europe Mail Ministry office became the "East European Christian Correspondence Center (EECCC)", project No. 98-E03. The Thai operation became Asia Vision, project No. 98- A03, still on the FCF website. In 1998 and 1999, FCF gave the EECCC $63,000 from their general fund. In the period 1998 – 2002, FCF gave $43,000 to Asia Vision.

These figures can be found in the FCF 990 forms for the respective years and in the FCF Annual Report for 2000. The Annual Report can be viewed at the FCF website.
