When father died and children grew up Ilena moved from tundra to the village and then to Dudinka where our church is. By that time she already had a baby and was a single mother. Hurting emotionally she met a lady believer from our church and heard the Gospel. When Ilena was listening to the story of God’s love and Jesus dying on the cross, all her life and childhood went thorough her mind and she was reminded of every instance when God intervened and protected her and her brother and her mother. She began to weep and thanked Jesus for His love.
Ilene is a firm believe today . This coming spring her mother Raisa is coming from tundra to visit her and we are looking forward to welcome her and lead her to the Lord.
Ilene’s brother is in charge of their deer breeding business.
There are so many lives in tundra that need to hear about God's love. Our missionaries are dedicated to the Great Commission.
I am flying to Taimyr at the end of January! Pray and be a partner in this endeavour!
