Russia: 250,000 Evangelical Books Delivered

Conditions for the Church have become increasingly difficult, notably more so in Western Russia. However, despite the deteriorating situation, we have just received the delivery of another 250,000 Russian New Testaments and Gospels of John in Novosibirsk Siberia. They are currently being transported to churches across Siberia and the Russian Far East.

This brings the total amount of printed books in 2021 to just under 700,000 copies. By month, we have printed:

February 10,000 “Experience The Power To Change” Evangelism books (in Mongolian)

March 50,000 Russian New Testaments

May 200,000 Gospels of John

August 100,000 New Testaments and 20,000 “Experience The Power To Change” Evangelism books (in Yakut)

November 200,000 Gospels of John and 100,000 New Testaments.

In a worst-case scenario, should Russia launch a major invasion in Ukraine there will be great disruption in both countries. Western sanctions will most likely bring further printings of Scripture for Russia’s churches to a complete halt. We certainly pray that this would not happen. But, we also must not lose this opportunity to do all we can for the sake of the spread of the Gospel in Russia—while it is possible.

In Central Siberia, another 200,000 Gospels of John are off the press, printed, and shipped to churches. The pandemic has been deadly across much of Russia, Siberian churches from the Ural mountains to the Pacific Ocean in the east have continued to take the Gospel to remote towns and villages.

The demand for printed material continues to be great, as churches pursue evangelizing in as many Russian cities, villages, and municipalities as possible. This has not been without opposition, but with God, it has been possible to continue, along with the support of GCM Ministries prayer partners like you. We are truly grateful for your support of this ‘print ministry’ to Russia.

If you would like to help us continue to print and distribute these valuable evangelism tools to churches in Russian, and their outreach teams you can donate through this link.
