Reporter No.2, 2024

30 YEARS of Ministry in the Pirkko Homes -“Those who sow in tears will reap with shouts of joy!” (Ps. 125:5 ESV).
In 1994 our first “Pirkko Home” opened in the city of Emva, Komi Republic, Russia, in the harsh northern region of prison camps. This was a big step of faith for us. Currently we have "Pirkko Homes" in 8 locations.

The Gospel Behind Barbed Wire Magazine - Many prison ministers use our magazine and the sermons of Earl Poysti for evangelism. Praise God!  A recent letter from one of these prison ministers shares how glad he is that we continue to publish and distribute the magazine, despite financial difficulties: "sooner or later the Lord will open again, as Earl used to say, not one, not two, but all doors, and we will be able to rejoice in victory over sin and hell!"

RCR Studio Ministry – Today God is providing new opportunities for evangelism through modern media resources, and the ministry of the Russian Christian Radio Studio already has extensive experience in this. Our YouTube channel has been actively developing and growing over the past 8 years and is one of the largest Russian-language Christian channels (155,000 subscribers; 60 million views). 

Dmitry Osenkin: “I was tired of running, suffering, and almost dying! I hope the Lord hears me, forgives me, and gives me strength for a new life!”
