Greg Morikone: Hello. I’m Greg Morikone, and we are excited to bring you this report from Julia Outkina, the Executive Director for 3ABN Russia.
Julia Outkina: “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men,” said Jesus. This promise has been given to His faithful disciples of all ages: power and strength for evangelisms. 3ABN has always set itself a goal of using modern technologies to bring more and more people around the world to salvation and Jesus Christ through electronic mass media, and we here are so thankful that 3ABN has the same vision for 3ABN Russia.
Satellite, cable, and Internet communication with all sorts of mobile devices enable people to watch different kinds of programming everywhere, and there are so many deadly, poisonous baits to swallow. By recently putting 3ABN Russia on satellite and providing us with new HD equipment, 3ABN has given an opportunity to about 150 million people of Russia to put into their own and into their children’s minds and hearts Bible based, spiritual, physical, and mentally healthy and enlightening TV programming 24/7.
The marketing department staff is doing a terrific job of contacting Russian cable operators with an offer to rebroadcast our satellite signal. Two-hundred eighty-four of them have been reached, and with 96 there are negotiations in progress.
Up to this time, the Lord has made it possible to sign contracts on the territories of the Pskov, Tula, Volgograd regions in the European part of Russia, and of the Vladivostok and Sakhalin regions in the far east of Russia—17 cities and about 20,000 homes reached.
The cable companies that have responded are smaller networks, not the major ones in the big cities. We believe that the Lord is giving us this sector of the viewing audience because those small cities have never been reached with public evangelism. And now, TV evangelism through [the] 3ABN Russia channel starts to play a prominent part in the way of salvation of those people.
Thank you for being part of [the] 3ABN worldwide family, as we all pray to the Lord claiming His strength to do everything we can to bring as many precious souls as possible unto salvation according to the word of Jesus. Thank you for our support through which the nets are cast and more and more souls are won for the Kingdom.
Greg Morikone: God is doing great things in Russia, but we believe the best is yet to come. Thank you for your prayers and financial support of 3ABN’s worldwide ministry. May God richly bless you in a very special way.
