Overton post Siberia Update

Dear friends and partners in ministry,

Thank you for praying for me during my recent trip to Siberia. I was witness to the Lord’s provision and blessing especially during the day when the temperature dropped to -30 F.

More than just physical protection, the Lord answered your prayers for wisdom and guidance. Praise the Lord, Pioneers’ teams in Siberia are growing and are seeing people coming to faith in the Lord!

Please continue to pray for unreached Siberian peoples. They are living in one of the world’s harshest climates and have the lowest income levels in all of Russia, but all of that is insignificant compared to their isolation from the message of God’s love and forgiveness.

Please continue to pray for our family as well. This week Ruth is away at a leadership conference and I am home with the kids alone. For me, being a full-time “mommy” is much more demanding than my trip to Siberia. So please continue to keep us all in your prayers.

Here are our prayers requests:
Safe travels for Ruth to and from her conference
Good health for everyone (it is flu season)
Progress toward establishing a new visa and registration in July of 2008
Safety for Jim and the kids as they making a trip next week to renew visa registrations

Thank you for your prayers and partnership with us as we are seeking and serving the Lord and His kingdom.


Jim, Ruth, Ben, Greg and Leeza Overton
