Hello dear friends. This is your Russian brother Pasha.

I am glad to resume the communication in the land of the living with all dear friends. A little cloud overshadowed me for a while there, but I am back in the light of day. Thank you for your prayers and being my friends.

Attached are some details of life in the 2019 and prayer requests for stuff coming up.

Richest blessing of Christ Jesus to all of you!

Pasha and friends.

Hello dear brothers and sisters.

Blessings to your God fearing homes and blessed fellowships of the saints in every places where God's name is called in truth. Our prayers for you and best regards as you continue to follow the Lord Jesus and striving to do His will.

This shorter note is to ask you all to pray with us with these timely things of the Kingdom.

Seems like to much is happening at the same time - and there is no way to ask the Driver to stop the spinning and for me to get off at the next stop. The world is going as it is destined - to spin all the way to the the last stop before the new Heavens and new Earth are in place.

So, the biggest thing is the conference that we will be hosting in just a couple of weeks. It is pretty much a national Calvary Chapel conference (though each year we have two in the land). With the great importance that it is for the faith of all of the guys and gals that usually gather to seek the Lord together there is usually quite a bit of resistance and complications prior to it and we are in the thick of it from many directions. I will spare you from many details, but will ask you help in prayer for the event.

A week before the conference I have a short trip to Siberia to speak at the regional conference. My self and the local pastors will be discussing a Summer outreach in Siberian villages when we are together. There are only two Calvaries in Siberia, but much desire to go on forward and reach out. Of course there are many other churches (and good ones) in Siberia, but we have the vision, the desire and your help praying for this.

I was not going to ask for financial assistance with this and the other mission trip, wanting to just pray and see how the Lord provides, but in light of some new circumstances I decided to spell it out and allow for my friends to decide things on these important things as well. The circumstance is the medical expenses of my own. I went to the see a Doctor with regard of a triple skin bump on the side of my skull, thinking that it is a minor deal and he can cut it out right in the office. He checked it and said sorry for bad news, but you have to go for a check up with an oncologist. So, I need to make an appointment - lose time and money on this while the important things are planned. So, if you can consider helping with the two upcoming mission trips. As far as medical stuff I will keep you all posted when I have more news. Of course you can pray for your Russian friend. However, like I said earlier - I do not mind if I get off at the next stop.

So the next important thing is an outreach in Finland in the middle of November. A group of nine folks from three of our churches is headed to the beautiful northern Europe where we have an opportunity to go to schools, rehabs and churches with the Gospel. 101 years ago Finland went independent from Russia. Mister Lenin kissed 'em goodbye and it went so good for them for nearly hundred years. Nowadays however with all the destructive tendencies of Europe the church is losing ground. New generation has not even heard the Gospel. So while we have this door open we believe that we can join hand with our beloved friends and missionaries in Finland and share the Gospel in it' s pure form to as many as we cam. Please pray with us for visas, open doors, finances.

All the other things that I usually write about are also current things that we ask you to pray for. So, if you sit down to read this note and pray for it, please remember us in your prayers for families, governments, workers in the fields, full time missionaries and new long term missions which we do not lose of. Just need the people prepared and sent out by the Lord's good hand.

If you have any questions or answers for us, please write when you have a minute.
Richest blessings to all the faithful fighters in this spiritual war.

Brother Pasha.

P.S. Please pray for the church van. It started acting up just as busy time came close. Hopefully I can see the van doctor soon and he helps quickly.

Shalom in Christ!

Dear friends and fellow prayer partners,

Grace and mercy of our Lord be upon you! May His Kingdom come and His will be done!

It's been a while since our last update. 2016 was not an easy year, but towards the end of it there was some relief and some answers from the Lord that made the breathing a bit more stable.

Praise be to His name!

Thank you dear friends for your faithful love and prayers!

I want to report to all of you that life in our neck of the woods is somewhat normal. That means troubles and comforts of all sorts of course, but generally quite steady. The Lord is good at all times and we are able to go on learning and doing HIS will from one episode of life to the next.

At the end of January I left the goodly nest and went to Guatemala and Cuba as the brethren have invited me to participate in the work with them. I had a great flight teaching students at Guatemala Bible college. There were young people from Costa Rica, Columbia, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Guatemala itself of course. Fine stock! Hope for this generation in my estimation :). That is what I told them upon my departure. I had concerns going there because there were some unexpected complications, but the Lord has blessed it so tremendously. so my faith had to sync and grow a little bit in the process. Wonderful trip - no matter how one looks at it. I have made many new friends during those two weeks. So now I pray for Central American churches and have wonderful faces in my mind that I see smiling. I know who I am praying for. If the Lord so wills I will make my way back there and extend a mission little bit further as I got a couple more invitations to serve and teach. If you would pray that with me I would appreciate it greatly. I can genuinely say that it is God Who opens the doors, gives a call and provides for the good work - via His faithful people.

In Cuba I joined the group that came a day after I landed there. We started a construction project together and then I had to fly home. Little troubles with communist customs are not even worth mentioning. The trip was so smooth. I knew many people prayed for us. Everything was wonderful. Very good work is continuing in Cuba. We are so honoured to be a little part of God's kingdom building in that island world. Please pray for churches there and for a possible visit of small group of Cubans to Russia. In a little humble way we hope to strengthen the hands of the ministers. The Lord is good! *So the CCV team has tackled two projects instead of one - because locals are so tuned in for the job that we do with them, which makes everything so efficient. The guys could have done another one if things were woking like this, but nothing was ready for the next one. So what could they do, but enjoy the fellowship, Caribbean winter and have a few days of well deserved rest. The team came back all blessed and fired up for the Lord's work. It is such a good therapy for the soul and spirit of a Christian to go on a mission trip! Not everyone is willing to go as far as Cuba, but the fire spreads and people generally become more alive and active in the home church. Thank dear friends for your prayers and for some of yours' support towards this end!
*On a side note here - I was able to visit with my good friends in Normal, Illinois for a couple of days, prior to this whole trip. Found some extra prayer support and sweetest fellowships its old friends. I thank God for this provision! ]

So now half way through March we are looking at Resurrection celebration coming up in April. We have planned a couple of outreaches this and the next month. Please pray for those. And generally for the Russian people and our leaders on every level of society. Our God is still willing and able to save. That is what He does in fact every single day among the big 7 billion crowd. We have to be His workmanship and partners in this good business. Praise the Lord for His good will! Even though I find my self so limited and so incapable in many things I do desire all God's work and all God's heart that can fit in this fragile little frame. And I am certainly learning more and more that prayer is the foundational thing for anything and all good stuff in life. So, I greatly appreciate your partnership with myself, my family, our church and the Russian church in general, my dear friends!!

In the middle of May we are hoping to hold some festivities to celebrate the 25th year of our church's existence in Vladimir city. We will celebrate our Lord's faithfulness and all His goodness and blessing that were poured out in our direction.

***You are all invited!!! If you are able to make it in the middle of May you can just get your self a tourist visa and come join us for the celebration. We will have 13,14,15 of May to rejoice, celebrate, to praise the Lord in some loud ways. :) If you want to come and need our help with logistics, please let us know. Write myself or the office.

Please pray for our home front as always. We as partners in the marriage, parenting and ministry need a lot more wisdom and energy than we currently do. As well as patience, boldness, grace and mercy to flow through us. The Summer is going to be here soon. So please pray with us for open doors for ministry and all necessary means towards that end. The Lord is good and is worthy to be praised. We are so thankful to be His servants and to be the friends with all who call upon the name of the Lord. may the Lord bless you richly!

We pray for your wellbeing and continued fruitful life!

Thank you for all!
Pasha, Lena, family.
