We live in a remarkable time. The signs of the end times are changing with such frequency that no one can say we are far away from the glorious Christ’s return. The Lord Jesus taught his disciples that God does control the world’s events. And if something like what just happened to Israel had happened in the Old Testament times, it would have been a clear call to turn to the Lord. “Consider your ways” says the Lord in the book of Haggai. Our savvy weapons or high-tech munition does not protect us. It is the Lord who does that. We must spend more time to bother ourselves how align our hearts well with the Lord’s than to extend world’s knowledge.
A New Group
We held a workshop in October in Sterlitamak. It is our second try to launch a bible study group there. A few people gave their lives to Jesus during the meeting. Please pray for the continuation of the group gatherings. For all the participants it takes courage to attend such Christian group. Pray especially for the leader to be able to carry on when it is challenging to lead.
Central Asian trip
In late December we are going to travel to Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. We plan to hold workshops and meetings to present our disciple making curriculum to the leaders of the churches in Central Asia. For those of you who don’t know, my wife Liliya was raised in Uzbekistan. Our goal is to cast vision of house churches in the area. Also, we plan to stop in Shimkent, Kazakhstan. Please pray for preparation of stage of the trip. Pray for the hearts of the leaders to be able to accept the truth. Also, pray for all the necessary finances came for the trip. Our estimates show us that we will need to raise $1200 for the trip.
Friends and Family
The new school year is gaining momentum. Christina’s favorite classes are Ancient History and Old Testament. Tim likes Math and Computer. We seriously hope he will soon be able to build and maintain our ministry websites.
We thank you for praying. It is because of you we can stand in the gap for this land. Thank for CO-Working in the work of the Kingdom!
