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.

I have numerous friends in their twenties that are struggling with drug addiction and poverty. My hart weeps for those caught up in addiction.The Lord used me to lead some to Him. I love the hope I see in their eyes and can't wait to see what God does with lives.
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Romans 8:18 I will continue to pray for your ministry.
Love and Blessings Wendy
