Making Missions Great Again!
Slavic Reformation Society Founder Blake Purcell, and his wife Cathy are about to make missions great again!
Well, at least, Lord willing, and the creek don't rise.
We are setting out on a 6 week, 20,293 mile round-trip campaign from Texas to the far east of Russia and back. Our first stop will be an outreach seminar in Riga, Latvia, followed by the Spring Intensive at the seminary in St. Petersburg, Russia, and heading from there to the opposite side of Russia to visit churches near Vladivostok. We are praying this trip will in a small way will help Make Missions Great Again!
For this trip to be possible we need to raise a total of $10,000: $5,000 for the seminar in Riga, and to help students from across 9 time zones come to the intensive course in St. Petersburg, and $5,000 for Cathy's and Blake's travel.
If the Lord provides 100 churches and individuals to give $100 each, this need will be met.
