From January 26th to the 8th of February, 2016 Ralph was ministering in the cities of Kazan and Nizhny Novgorod in the wonderful nation of Russia. He worked with 7 different churches ranging from a Word-Faith Church to a Charismatic Orthodox Church. It was one of the most powerful apostolic trips that Ralph has been recently involved in.
This was Ralph’s second trip into Kazan working with four churches he had visited before and established relationships with. This trip he added The Rapture Church and enjoyed his initial visit to this Charismatic Orthodox Church. He then spend a few days in Nizhny Novgorod where he had ministered three years ago. Here he ministered in the same church he had formed a relationship with as well as a new church that was exciting to come to know and minister to.
This area of Russia is strongly Muslim and there are only a few born again Christian churches. So, Ralph was asked to ministered on the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and the supernatural gifts of the Spirit, especially how they relate to evangelism and impacting people and communities for Jesus.
Plans are already underway for a return visit most likely in July to focus on and minister to the youth of the churches involved. This visit would most likely be connected to one already scheduled for the city of Yaroslavl, Russia and a large annual youth conference where Ralph will be speaking.
