New England Update

We have been in New Hampshire for the last three days. We are enjoying spending time with family and friends.  It has been ajoy to see eight of our nine grandchildren.  Soon we will also see our ninth as all of our children and grandchildren with be with us to celebrate Thanksgiving.

The New England weather has been glorious since we arrived. The temperatures are in the low 40s at night and mid 60s during the day.  Even so late in the season the fall foliage and colors are beautiful.  New England is such a great part of the country.

Tomorrow we drive north to Breton Woods New Hampshire. We will be attending the Northeast District conference of Foursquare churches.  We are looking forward to this time with co-workers in the Gospel.  On Sunday we will be speaking at Harvest Christian Fellowship, in Berlin New Hampshire.

Time is moving quickly. In just three weeks we will be back in Russia among our many friends once again.

Siberian Ministry Trip Update and Summary

We have been back in our home in Nizhny Novgorod for several days now.  We had 1.5 days of  rest.  Tonight and tomorrow we teach in 4 different rehab centers. Next week we travel to the United States. We will be there three weeks, attending a conference and preaching in at least 3 churches.

We thought that we should give brief summary of our 15 day trip to Siberia. We don’t do this to say “look at what we have done,” but rather to give glory to Christ and be accountable to those who support us.

  • We traveled 4350 miles by plane
  • 1200 miles by car (Sometimes very fast)
  • We spoke 31 separate times – often for as much as 3 hours at time
  • We preached in 7 churches
  • We taught for 1 week in a missionary school
  • We taught two days in a Bible School
  • We preached in 11 rehab centers
  • At least 37 people publicly claimed Christ as their Savior
  • We prayed for and counseled dozens of people
We also received invitations to return to Siberia after the New Year to present two Marriage and Family Seminars, and to preach in many churches.

Thank you to everyone who prays for or financially supports us. We could not do this work without your partnership.
