In recent years the Lord has led Lamb & Lion Ministries into an increasingly heavy involvement in foreign missions:
Africa, China, India, Israel, Mexico, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Philippines, Russia
History of Supporting Missions
The Ministry has always had an interest in reaching people in other countries. During the 1980s two missions trips were made to South Africa, and the message of the Lord's soon return was preached all over the country. Also in the 1980's the Ministry collected and distributed thousands of Bibles, both new and used. Another aspect of foreign outreach in the 1980s was short wave radio. A special version of the Ministry's radio program, "Christ in Prophecy," was broadcast throughout Europe, Russia, and Africa.
It wasn't until 1990 that foreign mission work became a major aspect of the Ministry's outreach. Two things happened that year that made it very clear the Lord wanted the Ministry to put more emphasis on missions.
The first event was the opening of the door in Russia for the Jews to return to Israel. In the summer of 1990 Dr. Reagan visited Israel and witnessed the refugees arriving by the thousands at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv. At that time they were arriving at the rate of 2,000 per day, and they were allowed to bring only two suitcases each. They could not bring money or jewelry. In short, they were arriving in Israel penniless.
Dr. Reagan was deeply moved by what he saw. When he returned to the States, he told the staff of the Ministry that he felt like the Lord was leading him to try to raise funds to help provide relief to the refugees. The appeal was made over the Ministry's radio program. God anointed it, and the money began to pour in. Before the year was concluded, the Ministry had raised almost $100,000 for the Jewish refugees!
The second crucial event of 1990 was a telephone call from a man of God in Toronto. Canada. His name was George Bajenski. He was a native of Poland, and he had a ministry in Toronto that was designed to raise funds to help the churches of Poland. While traveling across the United States visiting churches, he was given a set of tapes containing a series of sermons that Dr. Reagan had preached on prophecy in a recent meeting. He listened to the tapes as he drove home, and he decided to call the ministry and ask Dr. Reagan to come to Poland to preach the message of the soon coming of Jesus.
The result of these two events is that Lamb & Lion Ministry is heavily committed to foreign missions today. Since 1995 the ministry used almost 15% (over $100,000) of its total income for outreach to people in foreign countries. This outreach has taken many forms: relief to Jewish refugees in Israel, fund raising for an orphanage in Mexico,; the publishing and distribution of the ministry's books in foreign languages, financial assistance to missionaries, and the provision of prophetic conferences and seminars.
In 2011 we will be providing support to 8 domestic ministries and 14 foreign ones. An overview of some of the foreign missions we are helping is presented below.

The word, dugit, means "little fishing boat" in Hebrew. This ministry, located in central Tel Aviv, just half a block off Diezengoff Street, fishes for the souls of lost Jews. The ministry is headed up by a dynamic and innovative man named Avi Mizrachi. He is a native of Israel and is a Messianic Jew. The site of the ministry contains a Messianic bookstore and coffee house. Avi specializes in street ministry, primarily through music and skits. Once he gets peoples' attention, he invites them to the coffee house for refreshments and conversation about the Messiah. Dugit also serves as the meeting place for several Messianic congregations, including a Russian speaking group.

This is a remarkable ministry which Dr. Reagan helped to establish. It is located in central Jaurez, the Mexican city located just across the border from El Paso. The director of the ministry is Dr. Marco Samaniego, a medical doctor. He is a man with a great heart of compassion for the poor, the suffering, and the spiritually lost. He runs a medical clinic that offers complete medical services, from dental work to surgery. The services are offered on a free or pay-as-you-can basis. All patients receive spiritual counseling. At the same location, Dr. Marco runs an orphanage that houses about 40 orphans who have literally been picked up off the streets of Juarez. Dr. Reagan continues to serve on the board of this ministry.
Donald Dolmus, En Defensa de la Fe, Managua, Nicaragua
En Defensa de la Fe (meaning "In Defense of the Faith") is a Bible prophecy teaching and preaching ministry whose purpose is to reach out to the Spanish speaking world with the hope-bringing message of the Lord's soon return. Since 2009, Donald has been translating Dr. Reagan and Nathan Jones' articles into Spanish and placing them on his website, extending our ministry's outreach into a whole new culture and language base.

Pastor Blanco has a heart for the lost, and he conducts outdoor evangelistic crusades throughout the province. Since that time, Lamb & Lion has become a regular monthly financial supporter of his ministry. In 2001 Lamb & Lion's supporters provided over $10,000 to construct a concrete block home for the pastor and his wife who up to that time had been living in a bamboo hut.
Vasily Lastochkin, Christian Life Church, Moscow, Russia
During Dr. Reagan's first trip to Russia, he met a dynamic young Christian in Moscow named Vasily Lastochkin. Vasily has since become the pastor of a large church in Moscow. The church has an outreach all over Russia. They send printed materials — both Bibles and Christian books — to a network of 200 churches that stretches from one end of Russia to the other. Vasily is a master interpreter of English into Russian, and he has become Dr. Reagan's primary Russian interpreter. His church has been instrumental in getting Dr. Reagan's prophecy books translated into Russian and distributed all over the country.
