New Doors Opening: by Denis Kozlov

As you read this article, would you consider a financial contribution to help Russians Reaching Russians (RRR) in this important work in Russia?

The New Testament speaks of Jesus as the One who “opens doors that no one will shut . . . .” (Rev. 3:7). Looking at political developments, one might think that doors of opportunity for the public proclamation of the gospel are closing on every side. It may be true in many instances, but the doors for ministry in Russia not only remain open, but the Lord continues to open new doors. Since 1992, and, until 2013, RRR only worked with churches and Christian ministries in and around Saint Petersburg. But, since 2013 when RRR held its first conference in central Russia, it started a chain reaction. Now, every trip to a new region opens the door to even newer regions as invitations from multiple churches are extended.

This November a small team of equippers will go to one of these new regions, Kaliningrad, which is the capital of the Russian province of the same name Kaliningrad is sandwiched between Poland and Lithuania along the Baltic Coast and the team will conduct discipleship-training conferences for 5 associated churches. As well, they will conduct an initial presentation for discipleship training to another church.

Another such conference was requested by a large church in Saint Petersburg desiring to train their leaders in the effort to make discipleship an integral part of their ministry. They requested the right to contextualize the materials to make it relevant to Russian culture in general and to the culture of their church in particular. We see this as a great sign proving that these people mean business in the work of the Lord. Please, pray for this trip to be a success and that it will lead even more open doors in Russia.

Thank you. The ministry of RRR produces great fruit because God has inclined people to pray for and give toward this work. Please, consider a one-time gift or a regular contribution.
