    The Deaf Hear

    It was cold. We were above the Arctic Circle in Siberia hold­ing evan­ge­lis­tic ser­vices. The Iron Curtain had fallen, and the Russian peo­ple were hun­gry to hear the good news of sal­va­tion.

    Big “Thank You” to Orientation Sponsors Each year, mis­sion­ary can­di­dates come for train­ing and encour­age­ment… and good food.

They are slowly giv­ing way to mod­ern […]
