Ministry & Trip to Sochi
Michael, with Sveta our interpreter, preaching at Cornerstone Church
It is Sunday afternoon. We are all packed and ready to go to the train station. We will be making the 39 hour train trip to Sochi, in Southern Russia, on the Black Sea. We will be attending a conference for Foursquare Russian Leadership. The conference is sponsored by Coastlands Foursquare Church and Daniel Brown's Commended to the Word Ministry. We will be returning to Nizhny Novgorod net Saturday evening.
This morning we were at Cornerstone Church. Michael was asked to preach there this morning on short notice. Pastor Dmitry had to leave town quickly in order t visit a close friends who is also a pastor. The friend's wife died suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving behind her husband and two young children. Michael Preached from Mark 4:35-41 about "Trusting Jesus when you go through a storm".
If you think of it pray for this young pastor, also named Dmitry, that he and his children will find comfort in their relationship with Christ, despite their huge loss.
