Jill Morikone: Hello. I’m Jill Morikone and there’s a lot of excitement at 3ABN’s Russian Evangelism Center. Here’s Julia Outkina to tell us more.
Julia Outkina: There are lots of prayer houses, built through dedication and sacrifice of God’s faithful people for those who will respond to God’s call, “Come to me.” One of the biggest and most beautiful ones for the miraculous history behind it, is 3ABN Russia Evangelism Center, a facility of God’s work and God’s love located in Nizhniy Novgorod. Build after best of John Carter’s evangelistic series in 1992, 3ABN Russia Evangelism Center is the biggest Protestant facility in all the ex-Soviet Union.
It houses 3ABN Russia studios, the local conference headquarters, the biggest congregation of our city, and it’s also a place for many uplifting events held in the big sanctuary that can seat 1,200 people. Among those events are spiritual concerts and festivals, youth meetings and charity events, church leaders’ assemblies, congresses for different church departments, literature evangelists and pastors, as well as many other interesting events.
We are always present at these events acquainting the participants with 3ABN Russia’s accomplishments and inviting them to cooperate with us in spreading our broadcasting throughout Russia.
Today we are acquainting you with several recent events held in 3ABN Russia Evangelism Center. Children and youth have enjoyed two of them. Children’s Festival, “The Country of Safety,” taught kids not only the safe behavior on the city roads but also the spiritual lessons of looking for safety in every sphere of life in Jesus’ Word, the Bible.
“School of Leaders” was an important event for the youth where young people shared experience and got instruction in leadership and in the ways of reaching their peers for Jesus. A three-day “Follow Him Missionary Congress,” of [the] Volgo-Vyatskaya Conference [of Seventh-day Adventists], gathered the pastors, missionary leaders, and many church members involved in the ministry of public witnessing. Most interesting seminars, powerful spiritual messages, and testimonies strengthen the faith and the desire of brothers and sisters to reach this dying world with the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ.
We praise the Lord for you, dear viewers of 3ABN, because only due to your support [can] such a miracle as 3ABN Russia’s Evangelism Center exist. You’re a part of Russia’s soul-winning ministry so that Jesus may enter every heart.
Jill Morikone: Thank you Julia and thank you our dear supporters. If the Holy Spirit impresses you, please send your tax-deductible love gifts to support 3ABN Russia. May God richly bless you today.
