Of those first three believers, two were abused women who became zealous evangelists. Praise God that today there are over eight hundred believers, many of whom are now also helping to advance the Gospel. These are first generation believers who are going out to unreached villages, and people are hearing the Gospel for the very first time.
Throughout this entire time, Valery and Valentina have remained in that same region. Reflecting on their years of faithful service Valery shares that,
“as a result of our ministry several churches and groups were formed in different locations. In these recent days God has given us opportunities to travel to different districts in Yakutia so that we could use our experience for encouraging the churches, missionary families, and help organize and develop various ministries in churches.”
