Krasnoarmeysk - Kras for short

Today was our second day at the Novoshenalone orphanage. We had a few more students, and there were several more that wanted to attend our classes, but their teachers made them stay in their regular classes. The truth is that there are more children in this orphanage than we can teach at one time. After our VBS lessons, we found a restaurant in Krasnoarmeysk to meet with Sasha. He produced fliers for the Bible classes we are offering, and we plan on spending the next two afternoons handing those out in various parks and other gathering places. We are told that door-knocking with interpreters can be more frightening to residents than helpful, but we will try to continue to get the word out. We had just enough time to visit one of the sisters who has struggled with cancer before our evening class.

We had 2 young ladies in class today who had not attended in the past, so the room was packed! David Fleming spoke about the importance of training children, reflecting on the words of Jesus when He said, "Let them come unto me." Phil followed up with the practical side of faith development in young people. There were many questions asked, and we were able to spend some time talking about the issue of baptism. The Russian Orthodox Church baptises infants, and some questions were posed about why we do not do that. Our men handled the discussion beautifully. The church here has begun a Saturday Bible school in which 7 children currently attend. They sincerely want to begin reaching out to children. We are driving Sasha to the orphanage tomorrow to meet the director. We have high hopes for this relationship, since the Director is so open to Bible teaching. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the church at Krasnoarmeysk could begin teaching regular Bible classes at this orphanage?

As I was reading the comment section, a statement by P.D. reminded me of something very important. When we visited the orphanage at Macheyevka last week, the children asked about every single team member from last year. The same is true at the Krasnoarmeysk congregation. It is encouraging to realize that last summer's team left a big impact. Also, P.D. mentioned that this blog makes him feel like part of the team. The truth is, all of us are part of this team. You wouldn't believe how encouraging it is to read your comments and know you are thinking about us and praying for the efforts here. Thank you!

Hello! What wonderful work you all are doing! Thanks for keeping us up to date on everything even though you all are so busy. Each of you are representing us as Americans, "Mt. Julietans", and most importantly as Christians and we couldn't be more proud of this team. Keep up the good work and you'll be coming home soon- just in time for MJCOC's Homecoming!!! You all are in our prayers.

It sounds like God has really worked in Kras in a year. What awesome opportunities are opening up! I'm proud of all of you for being there. I know it is exhausting work, giving yourself to so many different groups, but you are making a big difference in God's kingdom! Hang in there. You only have a few more days. We're praying for you!
Love you all, (especially YOU Andrew!)
