To Russia with Love

  Twenty five 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.

In 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.
