Restoration by Tatiana Korolkova

My name is Tatiana and I am 43. Approximately 10 years ago, I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I began reading my Bible and praying and was baptized. The sad part is, by this time, my relationship with several members of my family were mostly ruined due to my alcoholism, but God began healing and restoring these relationships.
Although I was saved, I had many questions for which I could not find answers. I could not understand why Christians stressed the importance of prayer, Bible reading, and being …

Russia Today by Grant Edwards

I have been travelling frequently to Russia since 1992 – about 25 year. I have lost count of the actual number of trips, but would estimate about 40.
I am not an expert on Russian culture, economics, or politics. But I have a lot of observational experience of the Russian Protestant Church. I just arrived back from a trip to St. Petersburg where I was involved with ministry at five different churches, taught five conferences, and had numerous appointments with Russian church leaders.
Below are some notes …
The churches around St. …

I love this season in America by Denis Kozlov

Being a student of American culture, I am getting used to the rhythm of life of people living in small towns of the midwest. It seems like life is paced around big events like the Superbowl and holiday seasons.
I particularly like this season (Thanksgiving day and all the way through Christmas) for all the joyful anticipation that seems to be in the air. I like this time because for many it’s a season to reconnect with the family and people they care about. Many Christians count their blessings and express …

Thank You For Bringing First Steps to Russia by Marina Proskurikova

My name is Marina, and this is my story. It is similar to many others, yet it is mine and, thus, special to me. In May of 1999, I accepted the Lord and was baptized in the church in the town of Tikhvin. It was a new beginning . . . a new life with God. I started attending church service on Sunday mornings and became involved with the worship team. Yet, my old life stubbornly clung to me. At the time, I didn’t see anything wrong with that, and, …

True Freedom of the Heart by Sergey Sazhienko

 

 Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus!
 My name is Pastor Sergei Sazhieyenko and I live in the city of Suoyarvi in the region of Karelia. I thank God for the opportunity to write and thank you for your support for our Russian churches and ministers.

 I became a Christian in 1992 soon after the communist regime fell and freedom of religion was afforded to Russians after 70 years of atheistic rule. The gospel …

If They Could Go Through That, I Can Too by Vladimir Osipov

I invite you to share in the joy of celebrating 25 years of service to Christians and churches in Russia! Each ministry trip American Christians have taken to Russia has brought encouragement to our emerging Christian leaders. As we began our ministry work, we would often become discouraged, but then our American brothers and sisters would visit to encourage and pray with us. We would observe them–people who were in ministry much longer than we–and be encouraged by their example. It was so good to hear about the impact of …

Impending Persecution by Ray Willis

In 1991, Russia passed a constitutional amendment to provide for the freedom of religious expression as well as the freedom of conscience. In the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union, these freedoms were heartily embraced by the Russian people who were experiencing a crisis of worldview brought on by political, economic, and cultural upheaval. In 1997, another amendment was passed to revoke much of the freedoms granted by the 1991 amendment. The change in law was instigated by the fast-growing anti-cult movement in Russia who perceived emerging, non-traditional …

White Nights in Siberia! by Rick Ives

I recently returned from two weeks in Russia, spending time in both Saint Petersburg and Novosibirsk, which is the third largest city in Russia with a population that exceeds one million.
In spite of what we often hear about Siberia, I saw no prisons, the weather was 75-80 degrees and beautiful, and the sun shone for almost 20 hours per day (White Nights). Though the weather in Saint Petersburg and Novosibirsk was beautiful, even more beautiful was the work of the Lord we witnessed and conducted.
RRR is celebrating 25 years in …

Hungry to Experience His Power – Denis Kozlov

I am hungry to see American and Russian believers learn how to operate under the same anointing as Jesus! Acts 10:28 says “God anointed Jesus of  Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”
His Please, understand that Jesus performed all those miracles and did all those great things like healing people and casting out demons as a man! As a real man, just like you and me. A man who was anointed by God. Part of the good news of the Gospel is …
