HOPEww Responds To U.S. Storms

Severe storms hit the South, Southwest and Midwest over the Christmas holiday weekend, unleashing floods and tornadoes that killed at least 43 people, flattened buildings and snarled transportation for millions during a busy travel time.

In Missouri, emergency workers have evacuated residents from their homes and conducted dozens of water rescues on Sunday. At least, eight people had been killed and numerous roadways had been closed. Our partner church in St. Louis, The Gateway City Church, advised that all church members have been accounted for and no emergent needs have been reported.

Russian Churches Come Together to Forge Unity

The Russian churches find ways to forge unity, despite unique challenges. With a country more than twice the size of the United States the Russian church leaders sacrifice to spend time together. This past week Derik and Leigh Anne Vett and Todd and Patty Asaad spent a week with the church in St. Petersburg, Russia. Together the couples taught a Bible Talk leaders workshop and the Vetts also taught marriage classes. During this time, the senior leaders from the Moscow church traveled to St. Petersburg for two days of teaching and mutual encouragement.  God moved in the hearts of all attending and the churches seem on the cusp of great growth.
