Miracle Words by Rick Ives

27 December 2017 No Comment

2017 has been an amazing year for Russians Reaching Russians (RRR) as we see more new doors opening to us than ever before. This was abundantly evident during our recent trip. While in Kaliningrad, we met an Armenian Pastor named Stepan who has invited us back to do First Steps Discipleship training for his church. The people we went to Kaliningrad to train are also asking for us to go back.

In Saint Petersburg, we met the Head Bishop of all the Assemblies of God churches in Russia to plan future First Steps training. As well, we were also invited to Finland, a number of large cities in Siberia such as Krasnoyarsk, and the list goes on and on.

What do I make of this? In our 27th year in Russia, we can say that the work has just begun, the biggest impact is yet to come, and we are to continue going. So, I am asking that you pray for us and consider making a SPECIAL,YEAR-END FINANCIAL GIFT TO RRR. Just to begin to meet the requests pouring in, we need to put together teams, make all our itineraries, and get back to Russia, Your financial gifts, as always, make this possible.

I wanted to leave you with a real miracle story that I experienced in Kaliningrad. I was to preach in a church, but my primary interpreter could not be there. The church supplied a nice lady named Irina to interpret for me. But when I met Irina, she told me she was not an interpreter and had never interpreted before. I could tell she was struggling just understanding me in casual conversation. I immediately started to worry that my sermon would be a disaster. I prayed, talked and practiced a bit with Irina, and went onto the stage. Then came the miracle. In front of my eyes, an anointing from God came on Irina, and she turned into a proficient and powerful interpreter, translating most of my sermon with passion and accuracy. I was stunned, and so was Irina. At the end, Irina told me she felt great, and the sermon had a great impact on the people. God moved because He wanted His Word heard. It was a real blessing to all.

God is in that blessing business, in Russia! Thank you for all you do to help. As we say in Russia: I GREET YOU WITH THE BIRTH OF CHRIST
