We are excited to share with you an update on the progress of the church planting project you helped support in Altai, Siberia.
The latest stages that have been completed on the new ministry center are the ceiling on the main floor, the heating system, and the insulation on the roof. At present, work is being done on the second floor - the ceiling and the flooring, and the flooring of the main level. Over the last several months, the stairs were installed, a fence was built around the property, and other exterior work completed. Due to a variety of circumstances, the process has taken longer than was originally anticipated. Prices fluctuate, material is not always readily available, and we needed to take a few breaks as funds were being raised.
We thank God for His faithfulness and provision. It is a humbling process, and we recognize that we cannot do this on our own. We are learning to trust in God's timing and let Him lead us each step of the way. In the meantime, our church is growing spiritually and in numbers! It will be an exciting day when we are able to have our first worship service in the new building.
Altai is a spiritually dark place, so desperately in need of salvation and hope.
We thank each of you, from the bottom of our hearts, for so generously giving and choosing to be part of His Kingdom work in our region.
Your partnership in spreading the gospel here in Siberia is not done in vain.
May the Father bless you abundantly!
