Reaching the unreached 120 nationalities of Russia and training them to reach their own people.
3 nations, 3 histories but ONE DESTINY - JESUS!
In one trip I visited three regions, three churches ! Amazing how different they are naturally but how unique and similar they are in their love for Jesus and for each other!
Kirov region, Udmurtia and Tatarstan - are three neighbouring nations and yet three absolutely different in their history and culture. Mamadysh and Elabuga churches are dealing with Moslem resistance when preaching the Gospel! Tatarstan rather prosperous economically compare to Udmurtia! Udmurtian village Bertlo is very poor- and there is a reason. Historically Udmurtia has beed not just pagan - it is known for witchcraft culture that permeates every family. Russian Viatskie Poliany has Russian Orthodox and communist influence . Alcoholism is rampant. OUr churches there is reaching out not only the local people but villages around.
I preached in every villages and town
encouraging local churches and
ministering to the needs of leaders.
Praying for the sick and Jesus
healed from sicknesses and diseases. IN Elabuga several
instant healings took place -a
back was healed of lady that is 60 years old and she
was able to bend over and touch her feet with her arms. Miracle!!
In Mamadysh church after the service I had a
privillage of eating with all the children . Many of them were taken
from orphanage by christian parents and are
growing in love and God's poresence! Such a special time! I felt
such a joy when being in the midst of these
innocent and trusting little people!!! Jesus loved to be surrounded by children!
