Dear Family and Friends,

What a privilege to serve our brothers and sisters in Russia and Ukraine. This past season has been a very significant time in the life of the ministry with Moscow Seminary and Odessa Ukraine Seminary. We have been able to send many to minister in these institutions that train pastors, teachers, and leaders for the churches in these important regions of the world.

What do we offer to the future and current leaders that is unique? Both institutions highlight that our people bring not only a high level of educational and practical experience but also a perspective from a pastor’s heart. In addition, we are bringing in folks with leadership skills that are so needed by many pastors and leaders in both Ukraine and Russia.

Continue to pray for those who serve in this way. Your designated gifts to the Russia ministry make this all possible. We project up to ten going in the coming 12 months. Because of the sudden resignation of the President of Odessa Seminary, our requests for the coming year will likely be delayed for a few months.

Be sure to come by our booth at the Triennial Conference in July.
