Ministry continues to grow in the Commonwealth of Independent States.

By January 19, 2006

CIS (MNN)–A Slavic Gospel Association church planter reports encouraging growth from a small church.

Working in the Commonwealth of Independent States can be a challenge, so the location will remain undisclosed.

According to the report, the team started out with just 24 members and as of the end of 2005, they now have 46.

Most of them are youth and young families, which is good news for the future of the church body. In addition, the church planter reports that evangelism is active. During the last three months, 14 people received Christ at the church.

SGA says their team is also working toward organizing a rehabilitation ministry for drug-addicts. Teams also plan to continue ministry with the blind, with seven students preparing for baptism.

The church leader holds classes with them on Wednesdays. Then, on Sundays, they attend the churches which are closest to them.

To help the transition for the blind students as they make an effort to connect with a local church body, the church planter visits the other churches with them and participates in worship services to help acclimate the sighted with the blind.

Please pray for the church there as they continue to see more leaders rise up in ministry.
