Pressing Forward! A word From Matt Grossman with Rebuilt Ruins Ministries

Russia–Urgent Need

Dear Praying Friends,

Yesterday during a class our ministry’s TV fell down. The TV guy did estimates and said the repair costs will exceed the price of a new one. The cost of a new TV is $350. We are humbly praying for the swift replacement as we have already started our ESL program and need to use it. 

This Sunday we are going to have a special event – Harvest Festival. It is one of those occasions where we have a special service. Please pray for the new visitors to be able to come despite ongoing pandemic limitations.

Writing another chapter,

Update for the Szymanski Family

Dear Friends,

It’s 3:00 AM and the neighbors are having a loud party. I can’t sleep so I prayed a while and decided to use this time to write a ministry update.


We spent 3 weeks in Oregon ministering with several different churches. I am always blessed when we are received with all the love our friends share with us. It was our first ministry trip to Oregon since the pandemic started. The Lord showed up in each meeting we ministered in. I really love praying for people. It was just great ministering to others and receiving ministry as well. We had the pleasure to lead people into a relationship with Jesus. Were were able to help people deepen their relationship with Jesus. I was also able to help some people with deliverance.


We were encouraged seeing so many of our friends and making new friends on this trip. We were sad that we couldn’t see all of our friends as we hoped to do. Oregon is such a beautiful state to live in. Oregon will always be my home. We were able to get a couple days free to visit silver creek falls and enjoy a fantastic drive to the coast with friends. We were invited to several BBQ’s. We so enjoyed sitting out doors visiting with friends. We haven’t been to a BBQ or visited with a group of friends since the Pandemic started. I want to say thank you all for making our trip home so wonderful.


The radio ministry is still growing. Maricruz really puts her heart and life into the radio. We are still waiting to hear from the government about our Radio License. That government office has been closed since the pandemic started. 

FOOD for the needy:

A few days ago we were able to take another load of food to share with the widows that we support each month.

It is now 4:00 AM and the party outside is starting to quiet down, I’m going to try and get some sleep now.
Jesus Loves You !

September 2021, Prayer Letter

September brought the return of
classes in our ESL school along
with our other activities. We
thank God for a plentiful summer.
But we are as well looking
forward to what the Lord has pre-
pared for us in this new season.

ESL school
Last year, the pandemic was
forcing majority of the classes
online. Now, the classes were
finally resumed. It appears the
students will need to keep a safe
distance and wear masks during
class. We are seeing that students
are hungry for community.

It looks like there might be even
more openness to spiritual things
than usual. We are praying that
God will do His work this year, in
spite of the challenges.
Please pray for us that we will
stay creative and quick to adapt.


Also, pray for the new students
and hence new relationships. and,
for financial support for the
school as we have a few

Featured Leader
In Russia, baptism looked upon as
the biggest spiritual step in one’s
life, even more than salvation.
Therefore, after one gets saved,
they are very slow to follow the
Lord in believer’s baptism. When
one finally does get baptized, it is
very clear indication that they are
ready and committed to being
obedient to Christ.

Ruslan was born in the Brezhnev
rule. When he was in the Soviet
army, he achieved an officer rank.
Later, he had two unsuccessful
marriages and gradually became
an alcoholic. Jesus met him in a
special facility for alcohol and
drug rehabilitation.

After baptism in our church, he became
preoccupied with the missions.
Please pray for this son of the
Almighty that he could become a
prominent vessel in His hands.

Friends and Family
Tim started at full load of English
and Russian programs this week.
Along with that he has music
classes twice a week. Did we
mention that he has played his
first Christian songs on the piano?
Continue to pray for Liliya’s
father. He is in a constant bad
condition. Our prayer that he will
accept Jesus as his savior before
he dies. Please pray for that.
Thank you for upholding us in
prayer. We thank God for each of
