Today’s “Barnabas” (by Denis Kozlov)

Every spring and fall, I fly to the other side of the globe for a few weeks. This has become a very special time for me – both spiritually and mentally. When I go to the United States I have a two goals: 1) to keep the connection between Russian and American churches alive by sharing at and updating partner churches, and 2) to find new churches and individuals interested in connecting with this mission field. Both goals are challenging and rewarding at the same time. Both make me leave …

Coming to America!

The article below comes to us from Denis Kozlov. Denis serves as the Russian Administrator for RRR, visiting the US annually to promote the work in Russia to US-based churches.

Denis writes: From the age of six, I have been fascinated with the United States. Communist propaganda taught me to be afraid of Americans—even to hate Americans.

Breaking Vicious Circle by the Word of God

Dear brothers and sisters!
We are living at a special time now and we need to be at God’s presence constantly fulfilling His will. Being involved into the Prison Ministry for 12 years, I see how we save people marked for death from the Kingdom of darkness. We save them by preaching the Word of God. These people give testimonies on how God saved them and how He continues restoring their lives changing their destiny and ways of thinking. It is a great joy to hear testimony about people’s lives transformation.
We …

When I first met Yan Volkov in the early 1990s; he was a skinny kid with blond hair serving time in a Russian prison. Needless to say, not the picture of potential! When I lived in Russia, I used to go into prisons to minister the Gospel of Jesus, and that’s how I ended up meeting Yan. Sometime during his sentence, Yan gave his life to the Lord Jesus. Many prisoners do this, of course, but not many change in the kind of dramatic way that Yan did.
After …
