Registration

Just a quick post to let you all know that our paperwork went through at ovir, and we now have our registration. Because our rental contract runs up in two months, we will have to register then too. Please continue to pray for us as deal with the paperwork needed to stay here.

In our last prayer letter, we mentioned that we were having things stolen from us. Praise the Lord, we have not had a single problem since then! We know that many of you have been praying for us concerning this and we greatly appreciate it.

We had also asked you to pray for our special Resurrection services. Just as we were getting ready to print out the invitations, our translator told us that she would most likely be on vacation. Her husband is not saved and works for the military. He is not told ahead of time when he will get his vacations and found out only a few days before we did. Because of this, we were not able to hold a big service. We are still holding regular services with Pasha translating, but we will not be doing the village Bible study while Lina, our church translator is gone. We are also doing the Wednesday night prayer service without a translator while she is away. Please pray that God will enable us to be able to freely converse as we need to during these services.

Just recently we have started looking at buying a house again. We had no peace about buying a place last year, but this year prices for homes are much cheaper. We are specifically wanting a house in the region near the village where our Bible study is, or even in that village.

Thank you for praying!

We received some emails from people not able to post comments. We changed the settings, so you should be able to post comments now.

A Walk to Church

Thought that you might enjoy taking a walk to our church. We are renting two rooms on the second floor of an office building. This video was taken before services this morning.

Bible Lessons with Vladamir


Today I started giving salvation based Bible Lessons to an elderly man who has attended our church. His name is Vladamir Vonavich. He is religious and claims to be saved, but every time I have talked to him and asked for his testimony, he starts telling me all that he knows about the Bible. He has head knowledge of Christ but he still wants to rely on his works. Please pray for him! Our Bible lessons will continue every Sunday after our regular services.

Visas



In our last prayer letter we mentioned that we had to take a trip to Poland to renew our visas. Besides the girls being sick at the beginning of the trip, everything went smoothly. We applied and received our visas in one day! We praise the Lord for safety traveling, smoothly receiving our visas, and for giving us a chance to get some rest.

In the next few weeks, we will be working on getting registered. Please pray that we will have no problems, otherwise we will have to leave the country again in 3 months. We will also be having to find a new place to get registered after two months. Pray that we will either have a home of our own by then, or find someone who is willing to register us.
