Russian write-up for November 1st to 13th… UPDATE
In November, 2017 Ralph and Austin (his team member for this trip) will be heading to eastern Russia to minister in the cities of Yekaterinburg and Nizhny Tagil. Ralph has worked in this area a number of times in the last few years including a trip in January, 2017.
We have just added an extra week to this trip … It is now November 1st to the 20th. The additional time will be spent ministering in the city of Ivanovo. Ralph has ministered several times in this city a number of years ago and has just been invited to a local church where he ministered one Sunday morning … He will be holding a regional leadership school (Wednesday through Saturday) and ministering in a number of local churches on the Sunday.
He is looking forward to ministering in a number of local churches as well as in leaders meetings and youth events. God is moving mightily in Russia and He is raising up strong local churches who are moving in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and power.
His team member from Southern Manitoba, Canada…
My name is Austin Fehr. I am 18 years old and I live in Winkler, Manitoba, Canada. I currently work at Winkler Canvas repairing tarps, and have been there since June 2015.
I became a Christian at the age of 3, I attended church as long as I can remember. In March 2017 I went to a Friday night youth group called “Wildfire” in my city and then a Saturday night service at “Flood and Fire” – an amazing group of believers the following day. Since both groups welcome the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and have people exercising the gifts of the Spirit, I now attend both groups regularly. Since I started going to these two weekly meetings I have seen amazing growth in my relationship with God, as well as learning to move in the gifts of the Spirit.
In July 2016 Ralph prophesied over me. He told me that I would be a leader in the business world as well as in the church world, and that my ministry would take place in many nations in the world. Three months prior to that prophecy God gave me the idea of starting a clothing line, that for every product sold, would feed someone in a country in need for seven days. Ralph’s prophecy over me was a confirmation that I was on the right track in my life. I am excited that my online clothing line will be starting in May or June of 2017 and I believe this will be my career for many years.
I am very excited to be going to Russia to build relationships and express the love that God has given me for people. I am also excited that I am going to meet fellow believers in Russia and have opportunity to share our experiences of the Lord with each other. I know that when I come home I will have a much different perspective as to how people in other areas of the world experience God in their everyday lives.
