Our last day of corporate ministry is half over and it has been a phenomenal week here in Siberia as we obey the Lord and “go into all the world.” I never thought that I would be ministering is such a remote yet beautiful place as Siberia, Russia. The people are wonderful, warm, accepting, and seriously hungry for the Lord and all that He has for them to do. They love Him and obey Him even at great cost as they are persecuted and suffer hardship in this area because they are believers.
The fellowship has been really blessed, sweet, and powerful. It is often during the fellowship time that the Lord ministers to me personally and touches my life in fresh and new ways. Every trip this ministry goes on always results in God touching and changing my life and this ministry through the love and the prayers of the people that we came to minister to. That is often God’s way – you come to minister and get ministered to.
It is going to be difficult to leave this northern area and the people here. It has been a terrific week of the Lord’s presence and power. Lives have been transformed and, as always, our hearts have become fondly attached to the people we have met and the churches we have ministered in. Please pray for all believers in Siberia, Russia and their witness in the midst of a difficult situation.
We appreciate your prayers – especially as we wind down the major part of the ministry (a few planning meetings left here and in Moscow) and prepare to begin to travel. Pray for safety and that everyone’s connections will be made and everyone on the team will arrive in their respective cities and countries safe and sound. Thanks.
