|To Russia with Love
years ago I made my first journey to Far East Russia. Over the
following 17 years I made over 40 trips – taking humanitarian and
medical aid, taking teams from Japan and other countries to evangelise,
then from 1994 to 2009 starting and teaching at a Bible Training School.
In August this year I have been invited to join a small team
from Japan to
visit some of the places I went to on those trips, and even a few more
places that I have wished to go. I will have barely 2 weeks, but I
hope to be able to meet up with pastors I know, graduate students from
"Faith in Action Bible School", and many of my good friends in Russia.
Following this I plan to spend 10 days in Japan visiting pastors,
missionaries and friends.
Twenty five years ago in 1992 I made my first journey to Far East
Russia. You can read the story of this trip, and watch some of it
on the video here.
|On my second trip to Russia in 1992 I went by
ship to Nahodka, train to Khabarovsk, and then plane to Sakhalin to
visit one of the first Christian schools in Russia.
April 1994 we started "Faith in Action Bible School" in Vladivostok.
Since that time we have trained some 200 workers, who are in many kinds
of Christian work now.

All previous ministry in Russia and Japan has always been as a part of
the Body of Christ, with both prayer and financial giving. If you would
