Ufa Bible Ministries-Russia-Remembering…

UfaBible Ministries Spanning continents for Christ

It is always exciting to write the last prayer letter of a year. It is twice as exciting to stop and recall of all of His miraculous things that He has made in our ministry last year. Reflecting about His blessings we also think of every man and woman who stood in the gap for Bashkortostan in 2015. Here’s a scope of our praises for November-December:

Update

Last week of November we had Masterskaya (Workshop) – a leadership summit where we gathered prospective leaders from Bashkortostan and beyond and had a time of extensive training in leadership principles. We pray that every participant would grow into a strong leader and would be able to face and overcome challenges that are brought by spiritual warfare in Bashkortostan.
ESL school continued to work throughout the year and we had our chances to meet-and-talk with new students at ”cap of tea” time about spiritual matters. At the same time, we were trying to do our teaching job ”as for the Lord” and as result all students were getting an excellent academic training in English from our teachers.

Praise

We praise God that we now have three worship leaders who lead music worship on Sundays consequently. Leaders are growing! Praise God for woman leadership in our fellowship and in other our groups in the area which is getting strong.

Praise and Special Prayer Request

We thank God for several people who received Christ in recent months and are preparing for water baptism. Baptism is a serious step in this area and could become a sensitive matter so we ask you to lift them all in prayer for protection and spiritual maturity.

Prayer Request

We ask you to pray with us for the new legislation, which may bring even more unnecessary scrutiny for the churches in Russia. That would push an existing churches even more underground and slow down the process of planting new ones. Could you please lift this situation up in prayer as well?
Pray for our family as we are deeply immersed into doing ministry work and often feel exhausted and run “without seeing sun for many days”. Pray for trusted people to come along to share this tremendous load in 2016. Lastly, pray and consider year end giving to help us end this year in the black. Red is a true Christmas color but not when it comes to the finances especially for those who live by faith!

THANK YOU

We thank each of you for doing all these things with us. It gives us a truly pleasure to represent you in this part of the world! Thank you for making this ministry possible through your faithful partnership! Merry Christmas!
