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.
