In the wake of a new surge in COVID-19 cases across Russia and other parts of Europe, the Russian government said earlier this summer that workers who fail to get vaccinated could be forced to take unpaid leave. According to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Russian labor minister Anton Kotyakov said that the government is proposing mandatory vaccinations for service workers.
Nearly half of the third wave of infections appeared in the capital of Moscow. Russia is the hardest-hit country in Europe with more than 129,361 deaths recorded by the government. This ongoing crisis clearly underscores the need for outreaches such as the SGA-sponsored Christ Over COVID ministry, where pastors distribute food and other vitally important aid to needy families afflicted by the crisis. Please continue to lift this outreach in prayer, asking for God to open the hearts of these families to the life-changing Gospel as they experience His loving provision for them.
One Russian Orphans Reborn team reached hundreds of children with the Gospel message through drama performances near the Ukraine border.
Thanks to the support of SGA partners, one Orphans Reborn team was able to make more visits and share the Gospel to more children and adults.
