2015  has  been  an  interesting  year  for  the  people in the  CIS.  The  war  in  Ukraine has reached a climax, the sanctions again Russia have intensified, the BRICS alliance has taken another move towards reaching their goals, and Russia’s ongoing “relationship” with the USA and the West has taken a turn for the worse.  However, on a spiritual level, God has done much.

70 Live School units have been taken into the region and 32 schools have started. In total there are 308 schools that have started and there are a total of 393 units in the field, including those that have started and those who still need to start.

In  2014  we  started  a  church  mobilization  project  in  MinVody,  Southern  Russia,  giving  opportunity  for  local leaders to share their  Mission Vision and church planting goals. In 2015 we had a second meeting of that kind with  great  success.

Now,  in  2016,  all  of  our  Live  School  students  in  Southern Russia, together with the local leaders who have attended the previous  gatherings,  will  have  the  opportunity  to  gather  together  in Michaelovka, Southern Russia. We anticipate over 250 local Russians will attend and will give updates on their assignment as a Russian church. Our first 2 schools have started in Dagestan, Southern Russia.

Six schools have started in Northern Siberia, which is a new territory for us  as  a  ministry.  New  partnerships  have  been  established  in  the  Far  Eastern parts of Russia.

Although Belarus has been closed for serious discussion in regards to Live  School, God has done and is doing tremendous work there. I have visited a  few  newly  planted  churches  in  this  nation,  planted  by  Live  School  students in this nation.

Ukraine, due to the war, has also slowed down in regards to Live School, BUT in some way, after my visit, I saw God taking Ukraine to another level of serving the nations. Some of our school students are now ministering to  soldiers  on  the  front  line  of  the  war.  New  schools  have  started  in  Crimea and northeastern parts of  Ukraine. Also,  schools are  planned for starting in the war zone.

A Northern Country

In the picture you will see one of the three churches planted in a small village in the country I cannot mention that was previously part of the Former Soviet Union. The dedication of the people in this country and especially the church we work with is amazing! (Author: Hennie, CIS region)
