Republic of Tyva (Russia)

Someone shakes Tyva...

Everything is good on our side; however, we have had a strong earthquake, recently. I’ve never seen such an earthquake before in Tyva. It used to be up to 5 points maximum, but now it’s been 7, for several times. Thank God there was no destruction. Of course, it’s a miracle. The Moscow Ministry of Emergency Situations sent their planes, for they thought that damages were huge. To my shame, I also thought that everything was ruined in the Southern district, which is mostly a bedroom district. However, the Lord showed mercy to us. Maybe, the earth was frozen 3 meters down and that made everything stand like concrete. Maybe, the pushes were 10 km down in the earth and, therefore, everything stayed at its place. However, I know for sure that everything is in the hands of our Lord.

                The panic was big among the people. Everyone ran outside in the clothes in which they were dressed. It was -35 C that night. People were afraid to go inside the many-storied buildings. There was no telephone, mobile, or Internet connection. The first calls were possible one hour and a half after the situation was taken under control. Emergency posts were opened in the schools and kindergartens, where people could take cup of hot tea and warm clothes.
We were at home getting ready to sleep. It was 11:30 p.m. First we heard noise. I even thought, “Heavy machinery is on the streets. Tanks?” Then we heard trembling; the dishes started clanging; the noise became louder. The trembling grew into vibrations. The walls began cracking and the wallpaper clicking. The books and the dishes started falling down from the bookshelves; everything that could fall was falling down. Then the quake was so big that the floor began to dance and the doors moved from side to side.

History of the ministry

The missionary work of the “Hope to People” ministry in the Republic Tyva began in 1992. Today, two missionaries of the “Hope to People” Yevgeniy Andreev and Raisa Kechil serve there. Two evangelical churches were planted: in Kyzyl (1992) and in Ak-Dovurak (1999).
The ministry “Moms in Prayer” is being developed. Every year the summer Christian camps are run for children. The Bible study groups met in 14 locations at different times for the time of the missionary work in Tyva. Unfortunately, regular work is being done only in two villages today: Aryg-Uzuu and Shivilig. The primary reason is a lack of missionaries who are able to work in these settlements regularly.
