«Miracles» in Kalmikija

(interview with missionary Yevgenij Begletsov)

What is happening in Kalmikija, particularly, in your church?

01We did not have a massive awakening in the republic, nobody was raised from the dead, and nobody was healed in an unusual way. However, the great miracle is that God is with us. He speaks to us through His Word and changes us from the inside through the Holy Spirit. He blessed the church to live past winter in warmth and comfort; we don’t have any debts before the government. This is the fact regardless of the small amount of people in the church. We were able not only to support ourselves, but also invest in the development of the ministry. Brothers and sisters grow spiritually, they are willing to participate in church life, and this is a miracle. One can see how great our God is!

Christmas in Kalmikija

- Zhenya, please, share your Christmas time thoughts from Buddhist Kalmikija…

01 «The holidays in sunny Kalmikija were full of worries and anxiety, which gradually transferred to joyful fatigue. Why is that? The main load of work in preparation of the Christmas celebration fell on our family and a few other sisters from our church. We were understanding that Christmas is not just some special day in our calendar, but a unique opportunity to share the saving Gospel to church members and invited guests. (Romans 1:15-16).

Unfortunately, not many people understand the real meaning of Christmas. They don’t see God’s mercy, which He showed during the last year and is going to show in the current one. His mercy allows people to find God and come closer to knowing Him through Christ, but not to improve our comfort. (Acts.17:26-28; 2 Peter. 3:9).

02Sometimes, Christians share God’s passages with people who are not in church and don’t accept Christ as Savior. They forget that these truths relate to us, who love Jesus. We need to seek our Lord everyday, not only to help others to find Him.

Ministry of the Begletsov family (Elista, Kalmikija) in October-November, 2012

The ministry of our family was difficult in October and early November. We thought that we are strong in the Lord, but, in reality we are weak and fragile. The Lord had allowed different circumstances, which caused us to humble ourselves and stop worshiping idols, namely our comfort zone. Our children were seriously ill, and now Nadya is sick. We are afraid that the kids might get sick again. I have been sick for half a month already. I had a fever for a week, and I have been tested in the hospital. I need to register in the infections department. The doctors have found hepatitis C in addition to B, which I had already. The doctors also say that I have chronic pancreatitis and cholecystitis. They want to put me in the hospital for treatment. We don’t have separate funds for treatment, so we use our family budget to do it. This is a test for us and a lesson. We learn to live for the glory of God at all times.

“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:11-13

We continue to live with my mom and it is a big blessing for us. The conflicts have ceased, and we learn to show the love of God to each other. This victory is not ours, but our Lords. We are grateful to Him for that! We want to learn to be grateful to the Lord for all things. We humble ourselves before God and stay in His hands without any resistance. We understand who the Potter is. He breaks us through different circumstances in life and softens us with the Word of God to make us a vessel for His glory.

Begletsov family prayer newsletter for August 2012

pray icon

 Greetings, dear brothers and sisters!

We continue our ministry in Elista.

In the church, I continue leading a Bible study group; 14-15 people come and we study James. People share that God touches their hearts, changes their views.

I preach at the Sunday worship services as well.

Recently, we had a small children's camp for 12 people. It was so small because of our limited physical and financial capacity.

I participated in the Volgograd extreme camp in order to establish relations with the nearby church last week. I taught a course there called "The Names of God."

I am getting ready for a trip to Ukraine, during which I am going to participate in a camp for people with disabilities. This trip will continue with the academic session in the School of Preachers.

During this month, we were preparing documents and applying for a temporary residence permit for Nadia and the children in Russia. Faced with the Russian bureaucracy, we spent next month’s budget in advance.

The kids are growing up. Sveta is already crawling. She is already 8 months old. Zhenia becomes more mature and talks a lot,though, he is sometimes naughty.

We live with my mother and are blessed to be there. However, it is sometimes rough. We try to learn from everything that happens, we pray and ask God for help. God put us here to change our hearts and heal us.

Thank you for your prayer support and we ask you to pray for:

1. Our spiritual growth in the knowledge of God

2. The education of children in the Word of God and their spiritual birth

3. The development of the ministry in Kalmykia (student training)

4. Permission to stay up to 3 years in Russia

5. Financial support

6. Separate housing

7. Visit to Ukraine (camp and study)

Thank you for your prayers and financial participation in our ministry.
