Ufa Bible Ministries, January Report 2021

FEAR NOT, For I am With You:



The most popular Bible verse of 2020, according to the app YouVision, was words from Isaiah 41:10: fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

God is reaching out to His people with the message of hope and encouragement in the time of darkness. It’s true that 2020 has been a challenge for many of us in many ways. But it is also true that He has been faithful throughout the year. We are entering 2021 holding onto a solid hope about all the possibilities that lie in store for the ministry and for us.

Christmas Program

This year we had a very blessed Christmas service on January 7th. Our children did a wonderful job too. We had several of their parents visiting for the first time. That was especially special! Besides, we had one man at the service who was a first-time visitor. He said he was struggling with his faith in Allah. He said he had a dream and a voice telling him to search for “the people of the Book”.

That’s a typical reference about Christians here. So, could you please be in prayer for that man as he was obviously seeking for the truth, not knowing that the real truth was so close? Pray that we can have another opportunity to meet and talk with him.

Continue to pray for parents of our ESL students that the Lord would continue to work in their heartsand mind. Many of them are naturally afraid of Christians. But due to the ESL school studies, we have built some very special relationships with many of them. Pray that we may have opportunities to share with all of them.


We were blessed to share our Christmas table with our Tatar side of the family here. We’ve had precious moments of sharing about salvation in Christ with our Muslim relatives.We have greatly appreciated your prayers and support through this last year. We look forward to continuing to represent you to the people of Bashkortostan in 2021!
