This past Friday I finished teaching a 33-hour course on Cross-cultural Missions at the Bible Institute in Chelyabinsk, Russia. I had 18 students that came from the area: pastors, deacons, Bible College students, and other church leaders. The course was divided in 5 sections: Bible Basis of Missions, History of Missions, Strategies in Missions, Culture and Missions, and The Local Church and Missions. I believe it was a success. Pray that the Lord will use it to encourage a greater involvement of the churches in this area in cross-cultural missions.
Your contribution to the World Missions Offering (WMO) this April or directly to the Russia Partnership will contribute to the training of leaders for the churches in Russia.
