Greeting to President Robert Turnage, Sister Brenda, and School of Christ Staff.
We are just finishing the School of Christ in the Republic of Karelia. Coming from different regions of Russia, the 30 students were made up of pastors, missionaries, and workers.
This was a time of Spiritual renewing as they studied the teachings of the School of Christ. This training is very necessary to prepare us for ministry in the days ahead. Students are taking to the streets in the cities of Russia, and preaching the Gospel in boldness.
We are continuing to translate the SOC material with sign language captions so that the deaf can study and learn the School of Christ.* It is a very large undertaking but so important that all can learn about Christ.
We are setting up three-day prayer conferences with students that have graduated the SOC in different regions of Russia. Our prayer is that we will see revival and awaken the Spirit of God in these workers—that they will be equipped to do the ministry that God has called them to do in these closing days.
Former SOC students have planted a new church in the south of Russia. The church is growing and new believers are being discipled. Thank God for His faithfulness.
Thank you for your prayers and support of our work with the School of Christ here is Russia. Only with your help can this work be possible.
