Photo of the Week - 3/13/2016

This week I am sharing two photos of two missionary families who have been serving here in Krasnoyarsk for a time while preparing ultimately to move their families further north to serve in the village of Vanavara. We are grateful that late last evening the husbands, along with a Russian man who is a friend to all of us here in Krasnoyarsk, arrived safely by vehicle. During the winter months a "winter road" is passable. Over the coarse of the winter months, the men have made several trips on this winter road,  followed closely by a heavy duty truck carrying building supplies, food, and their belongings. 
Tomorrow morning, the wives along with their children (five total) will fly up to join their husbands. Please pray for their safe flight and arrival. Also for their adjustment in this new ministry.

Photo of the Week - December 20, 2015

I just love this photo which we took last Sunday afternoon as we gathered to celebrate our daughter's 18th birthday. This is most of our youth group when rarely photographed together. I say that because with the six day school schedule here in Russia, Sunday is the only day the kids have free to sleep in. This also means that often sports competitions are scheduled on Sundays. As a result, it is difficult for teens especially to be faithful to come to church on Sundays, much less special meetings. 

In the midst of all the activities and schedules, we have one young man (pictured on the far left) who has been attending Sunday school faithfully since he was four years old. He is now fifteen. 

Please pray with us for these teens. Not all of them have accepted Christ. But, thankfully, that number is down to four of the ones pictured here. Secondly, please pray for those who are saved to understand the importance of faithfulness to God's house and fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. The potential in this group is incredible! What God could do with a group of young people like these who are committed to Christ!
