past New Years, Spoken For took over 33 Americans to Penza, Russia for
the annual Christmas outreach to the Penza, Russia orphanages. The team
was absolutely wonderful. We had youth, parents, singles, couples and
grandparents join us this year. People came from California, Texarkana,
San Antonio, Denton and the DFW Metroplex. We also had Oleg Alexandrov
and Mary Meskevitch join our team along with Olegs daughter, Leesa.
I want to express
thanks to Sergey and Angelica and the great team who joined us this
year from Gospel To The Children. Sergey and Angelica had everything
very organized and ready when we got to Penza. I also want to thank
the youth from the Fireworks College-age ministry who helped us reach
out to the kids this year. What a blessing it was to see young people
who we had the opportunity to reach out to over the past 5 years now
joining us as missionaries. They were the energy we all needed. And
I want to thank the Crochet club of Irving Bible Church. I wish you
could have seen all the smiling faces that the youth had when they received
their beautiful hats and scarves that you all made. What a special time
that was. And I want to thank the incredible team of Russian believers
and American believers who helped by donating the thousands of dollars
and who put the bags together with all of the gifts so each child and
teen got a present this year. It was amazing. Each time a child opened
a present they would squeal with joy.
This was a wonderful
time of ministry. Thousands of you have made been the hands and feet
and voice for these special youth that God loves so much. As a result,
God is moving mountains in Penza. Thank you.
