Sharing Jesus with the Russian People
The Bedient’s Russian ministry continues…over the past 14 years Mike and Sheri’s summer Pushkin, Russia English Language Programs (ELPs) have included many schools. The changes in the Russian students’ lives caught the hearts of Russian teachers and directors in other schools moving the summer ELPs from Pushkin to Greece. Many Russian students, parents, and teachers will be attending their Russian ELP in Greece in June 2018. Amazingly… two additional Greek schools will be joining this summer’s program.
Prior to travelling to the Greece ELP in June 2018, Mike and Sheri will travel to Pushkin, Russia and meet with spiritual leaders and pastors throughout the week. They have two goals for these meeting.
1. Ask these leaders to provide small groups follow-up for their 2018 ELP spiritual hungry Russian students when they return from their Greece ELP.
2. Ask them to recruit small group leaders for their February 2019 marriage retreat. These leaders will be equipped to recruit and train other small group leaders who will recruit parents from several schools to attend the marriage retreat.
Mike and Sheri Bedient need to raise $9,000 to cover their mission trip to Russia and Greece. Can you partner with the Bedients and help send them as they share the love of Jesus with the Russian people?
