Admonishing every man

Wherever Paul went, he tried to get in touch with the local disciples. In Acts 21 he was going to Jerusalem but he was making multiple stops on the way there. I believe Luke was writing about each of the encounters and all the names for purpose. Paul could have made it straight. Instead, he made every stop possible to pray and encourage the new churches. In some churches he was appointing the presbyters while in the others he was holding some sort of retreat. He himself wrote about this his determination to “present every soul adult/perfect/grown in Christ Jesus.” Let it be in us, too.

Picnic May 9th and ESL classes

Our regular May 9th picnic went well. We had some new souls attending that were brought by the church members. Many were touched by the redeemed relationships that they saw between us at the riverbanks. Some expressed their interest to attend one of our groups. Could you pray that they could visit our Sunday service?
Our ESL classes are set to finish at the end of May. Please pray for us as we are doing the year’ end events. Pray that every precious soul would have an opportunity to hear the gospel. Also, worth praying for preservation of the souls during the long summer break.

Summer Family Camp

The SFC is set for July 25-30 this year. As always, it is a highlight of the year. We can do a lot of special things there. Most importantly, we can hold a seminar and outreach in nearby villages. We still have to rise $1300 for the camp, though.
If you pray for the brother that we’ve written about in our last few letters. He is going to travel north to join his family there and then they are going to come back to Ufa together. Could you continue to pray that the Lord would continue to restore the brother.

Friends and Family

We are seeing His mercy as we are in the middle of the exams season. Pray for wisdom and stamina for all of us throughout this season.
Thank you for standing with us for this land. We cannot properly express our gratefulness to you for your sacrifice and prayers for this ministry here!
