I thank my God in all my remembrance of you . . .
in view of your participation in the gospel (Philippians 1:3,5).
May God bless you for your partnerships in advancing the Gospel and our ministry.
On April 9, we went to a center of our city and shared the Gospel. It was on the eve of Easter, so we started to talk with people using a questionnaire. We distributed New Testaments and brochures to anyone who was open to talk and we shared the Gospel with them.
A couple weeks later, on April 20, we had organized two youth events at a retirement home. The youth sang songs, recited poetry and shared some scripture about Easter. Finally, the youth gave to the residents Christian brochures, wafers and mandarin oranges. It was a blessing that, for the first time, the leadership of the retirement home allowed us to walk to the wards and talk with the residents.
On the 8th and 9th of May, the youth traveled to Brest for the conference. We took to the conference the youth who were in Christian camp. Our goal was to let the youth spend time in Christian fellowship and listen to the Word of God. The youth group consisted of 26 people. The youth repented at the conference and a numbers of youth refreshed their relationships with the Lord at the conference. Praise the Lord!
At the beginning of May we have started to travel with the youth to Hamlet and prepare a territory for holding summer camps. We work on the territory physically and then spend time at the bonfire in fellowships. We grill sausages, sing songs, pray and meditate on the Bible.
Every Sunday after the evening service, we travel to Hamlet with our non-believing friends and spend time together. We spend time playing sports, sitting at the bonfire, singing songs, sharing our testimonies, and brothers take turn preparing and sharing a message.
As faithful SGA-sponsored missionary pastors reach out to needy families with food, medicine, and hygiene items, doors are being opened for Gospel witness.
Hundreds of people have been infected with COVID-19 in Yakutsk, so believers are using this opportunity to bring both food and the Gospel to needy people.
