Ufa Bible Ministries, Russia, March Update

The work of the Lord here continues with blessings and trials. We know all things work together for good and give Him thanks for that.


We visited a town of Beloretsk in the eastern Bashkortostan last month to serve to existing believers there and witness in the house of peace to Muslims. In the prayer request’s section you will find more about how you can pray for those people. We praise the Lord for those believers there who ‘’shine as lights in the world of darkness’’.

Men’s club

We have had a few new men in our men’s club. As most of them are non-Christians so the focus of our studies has been changed. So we became more gospel oriented in our men’s meetings. Praise the Lord for these new men! Pray for salvation of those who joined.

Prayer requests

Pray for 6 yo girl named Ele’eza who was knocked down by a horse when we were in Beloretsk. We rushed her to emergency room and a few days later she was transferred to the main children’s hospital in Ufa, the capital. She got her nose broken but no brain concussion. Pray for her full recovery. Especially pray for her Muslim parents that they would not grow bitter as result of this incident. We know that Satan is clearly fighting for every inch of his dark kingdom here in Bashkortostan. Pray for a Russian guy named Kostya. He comes to our men’s club but not to church. He is struggling with spiritual warfare problems. Pray that his mind be open to receive the Lord. Pray for two upcoming trips that we need to make in April and May. One is to visit a town in Bashkortostan and the other to attend a conference.

Our travel budget suffers so please pray for additional $300 to come to cover this hole in our budget.

Interesting Facts about U and B (Ufa and Bashkortostan): Sergei Dovlatov – one of the most popular Russian writers of the late 20th century- was born in Ufa.
