Russian Correspondent March 2018

Not Giving Up (for Lent)

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,


As we accompany God's children around the globe, missionaries observe, reflect, support, share and witness to their faith. Through these newsletters I let friends and partners know that their prayers and financial support really are making a significant impact, both on those whom we accompany and on us ourselves as we consider on our own faith journeys in light of others' experience. I named my newsletter Russian Correspondent a decade and half ago with the intention that it would bring two images to mind– one of a foreign journalist and the other of a pen pal. The second (and more important) of these remains unchanged – I hope that in these pages you gain some insight and feel (even at a great distance) a personal connection to the people with whom I work, your sisters and brothers in Christ in the former Soviet Union.
