Greetings in Jesus! Here we had snow one week ago. It became very cold.(-30C) We will have a Winter Leaders Conference (12/16-18). Please pray for the messengers of 1 Pet 2:1-9, John 3:1-16, Acts 9 and John 21. Please pray for my self-supporting business that begins, too. Please pray for us to have a nice meeting place. Pray for all to write a deep life testimonies and that we all may experience the power of Jesus' death for our sins and his resurrection to give us eternal life.
Altogether around 35 members participated in the Spring conference, including S. Alexey Belykh (Moscow), and M. Francis Yoon (Astana 2) as messengers. Sh. Francis's message on Genesis 3 revealed God's unconditional love toward sinners. Natasha delivered a message entitled, "This is why I came to preach the kingdom of God.” (Lk 4) She showed why Jesus came and why we came, too, to deliver the good news of salvation to all the world.
