Ufa Bible Ministries Update and Special Request from Stas Karpenko in Russia

Let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

September brings harvest here. We reap what we have sown. That prompts us to reflect of how we sowed throughout the year. The same concept holds the passage where apostle Paul instructs us to evaluate our endeavors so that we may remain in good standing. Jesus taught that we need to abide on the vine to bear fourth fruit. We have to bring Him praises for every smallest fruit in our life. And we ought to evaluate things in our lives that need to be improved in order to bring Him more fruit. This is doubly important as we all are passing through this challenging time.

So, “Let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon”.

ESL School and School Year

In Russia, September 1st is universal day for all educational institutions to start their school year. But not this time! Due to constantly changing measures in regard to the second wave, we, along with other small schools, had to postpone the beginning of our in-classroom classes.

Please pray for soon beginning of the school year. We do continue our classes online but obviously our opportunities to discuss things, drink tea together with our students, etc., are limited.

Could you also pray for children here in Ufa and their families who are quite anxious about their children and the going back to school season that is upon us? This is like no other fall and is made increasingly complex by virus and its impact on economy.

Harvest Festival, Workshop

Please pray for our special Harvest festival service which we plan to hold on the last Sunday in September.We know that these are challenging times so anything might happen. For this very reason we still have not decided when our next Workshop might be.


Liliya’s father is in the same health condition. Continued prayers are needed.

Tim has started to learn Bashkir this year.

As we couldn’t minister in the US this summer, that puts the ministry on edge of significant financial need. Last month we could barely meet our budget’s ends to pay for our websites. But we know our God is faithful. So, if God is leading you for a special offering for this ministry that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for being a part of our collective prayer efforts. Corporate prayer of the saints that’s what moves the Kingdom’s boundaries here in B-stan.
