Pray for Russian Friends

Did you know we have friends in Siberia? Were you aware that in Russia has ongoing programs in Siberian towns? Steve Griebling, Rich Halter, Art Gasch and I have all met folks who live in Siberia and minister there all year around.

Take a look at the Siberian Deep Freeze story to see what is going on now. Pray for our friends like Bishop Anatoly who has planted numerous churches in Siberia.

Moscow, Russia (AHN) - Russians are bracing for temperatures of as low as minus 55 degrees Celsius (minus 67 degrees Fahrenheit) in Siberia as Russia's emergencies ministry warns on Wednesday of its impending dangers in the coming weeks.

Government agencies were placed on high alert, reports AFP. The ministry ordered local administration officials to prepare for the extreme chill expected to last until Jan. 21.

The ministry warned that the unusually cold weather could kill, cause frost-bite, conk heaters and cut electricity to homes, disrupt transport, increase the rate of car accidents and even destroy buildings across Siberia.
