It will be my last trip this school year and I am trying to make as much impact as I can on it. The Russian political situation gets more and more tense and unpredictable – who knows how long this door of opportunity will stay open for us. In fact, some of our ministry friends are already saying that the country changed drastically even in those six weeks passed since my last teaching trip in Russia in February. And not only politically but something is changing in peoples’ morale as they are getting used to live under a dictatorship that annexes neighboring territories at will.
Please keep me in your prayers as I travel across half of the country to celebrate Pascha with our ministry friends in Krasnoyarsk and hopefully make this year celebration even more meaningful for many of them by presenting the Gospel with Evidence to teachers, students, clergy, and lay leaders there. Please also remember my family in your prayers: Oksana and Yulia in MN, Vanya in ND and Anya en route from MT to AK.
