Team of Three (Bruce, Jesse & Translator)

First of all, please allow me to thank each of you who so generously gave to this project! Your generosity and trust in me was deeply appreciated. If you should have any questions regarding any part of this report, please do not hesitate to contact us.

I am planning to create a documentary film about our experiences and time in Beslan. I have nearly 6 hours of video, and hope to have something ready for release by early next year. Your prayers and support for this would be greatly appreciated, as such projects can be rather expensive. As things come together on this project, I will post news of it on this website. I feel it will be vitally important to tell the stories of this terrible event in order to keep support coming for these poor people. Also, I feel it is imperitive that people in the West be prepared for the very real possibility that such acts of vicious terrorism could happen again.

Thanks again!

Bruce Porter

The above figures are obviously rounded to the nearest dollar, and represent some amounts that had to be estimated in good faith because some expenses in Russia were paid in cash and no receipt was available. I was in Russia for exactly two weeks.

The Children of Beslan Fund is a project set up by my good friend, Congressman Tom Tancredo and his wife Jackie. Tom and Jackie were in Russia at the same time I was, visiting hospitals in Moscow, meeting with Russian officials, with Tom coming down to Beslan also for a visit to the school and cemetery to bring the condolences of the United States Congress. Jackie speaks Russian, and they were highly effective during their visit. They have set up this fund, which we hope will grow, to help provide ongoing aid to the people and children of Beslan as they struggle to put their lives back together.

The donation to the Dorcas Fund is going directly to my good friend Peter Lunichkin, who is the Founder and Director of the North-Ossetian Mission of Christian Compassion in Vladikavkaz. I stayed at Peter's ministry and can recommend his ministry without the slightest reservation. Recently, Peter wrote the following email describing a wonderful project that will put the Good News into the hands of each child hurt in the Beslan massacre. I shall include the Russian version (for those of you who can read it) as well as the English translation. Peter told me that each CD player and all the disks and literature will cost only $100 each. This is a powerful tool!

Бог касается сердец через Слово Божие и пение, поэтому мы планируем подарить каждому ребёнку, находившемуся в разрушенной школе, по-настоящему христианский подарок:

Мы хотим сделать каждый подарок личным, т.е. от конкретного человека или церкви конкретному ребёнку. Важно, чтобы дети почувствовали за этим подарком любовь Божию через общение с христианами, поэтому вам будет выслан адрес ребёнка, который получил ваш подарок, для дальнейшей переписки.

Планируется подготовить подарки для 700 пострадавших детей.
