The First Covenant with the Lord

Peace to you, dear brothers and sisters!
I'd like to share some information about what God does in the Far East.

First of all, I want to thank the Lord Jesus Christ for His grace, which empowers and gives us opportunities to work for the Glory of the Lord. The August was full of events and has gone by very quickly. We were engaged in preparation for the trip to the village, where we are working right now. By God's grace, we had the opportunity to visit the brothers and get involved with them in some activities. The entire trip lasted for 10 days.

I've got very excited once I saw that the brothers Sergey and Ivan are safe and sound, and the Lord uses them to advance His kingdom there. I was really blown away with another great event – baptism of the first sister from Udege people group, which I consider as the one of the most important landmarks. This exhilarating occasion was held on August 29, on the river in the same village.

On top of that, it was really nice to see other brothers and sisters coming from neighboring villages. On August 23, they held a spiritual concert in a local recreation center. The hall was jam-packed with people, although, it accommodates about 40 people only, but this is just the fifth part of the whole village. I was surprised and encouraged by seeing it. There were adults and children. At the concert, there could be heard the Christian songs and poems. I asked people about their impressions out of this concert, and thank God, everyone was happy: both participants and listeners.

Brothers and sisters who came to play a concert were getting acquainted with people and exchanging their phone numbers. I am also thrilled that young people from the Udege people group were deeply involved in this process, since some of them entered the Khabarovsk educational institutions and want to continue to keep company with the believers.

As I look at Sergey and Ivan as well as their ministry, my heart is overwhelmed with joy. God has blessed them, the Udege people have accepted them and treat them well. Brothers are trying to do their best to enhance the living conditions in the house in which they live. They have done a great job in remodeling the bathhouse, and made a partial renovation inside the house. As people come to visit them, they may see the changes in the house, and all the visitors understand that this is a rented house, but nevertheless, brothers are working hard in there as in their own.

God has blessed us to get acquainted with one family. I am so happy to see as the Lord works in their hearts. They understand the Word of God. Sister O. shared with us one interesting fact that when she read the Scripture on her own, she was just going through the motions, but as soon as the brothers came, she suddenly realized that Christ is the Savior of the world, who came to save people from their sin. I asked her questions about her daughter A. and about her baptism and she replied that she was very happy that her daughter was baptized.

I asked her questions about her daughter A. and about her baptism and she replied that she was very happy that her daughter was baptized.

Now, following the baptism, A. thinks how to conduct the Bible lessons for children. She works in a kindergarten, but under Russian law, it is prohibited to conduct any religious activity in such institutions. So, Ivan decided to talk with the head of the administration about the possibility to rent a room for various meetings with children if their parents agree on that. I ask you to pray for this, and also pray for A., because her husband left her and said: “That he will no longer live with this praying nun.” After that I spoke with her and I encouraged her as much as I could by giving her some examples from the Epistle of Peter. I explained to her that this is nothing but a test, if one is blasphemed by unbelievers, then one is glorified by believers as they suffer for the name of Christ. But, she’s still having a hard time dealing with this. Pray that her faith will grow stronger through these trials.

I’m grateful to God for everything!
