For many years we have reported of our various and varied ministry trips to cities across Russia. One such location is the city of Cheropovets. In many ways, this Russian town about 500 km north of Moscow is rather unremarkable. Yet it holds a dear place in our hearts because of the relationships we have build with the believers there. We were introduced to this church years ago by Alexei who is part of our Ministry Coaching Network. While Phil has not been able to get a visa into Russia recently, Alexei has continued to regularly take the overnight train to Cheropovets in order to encourage and train this leadership team.
Thank you for your continued prayers for Alexei and Tatiana who serve leaders in Moscow and surrounding region. Also pray for the many small groups of believers across Russia who are living out their faith, some in an increasingly hostile environment to the Gospel.
