Pastor Benjamin Levtseniuk, who is the regional pastor of the Khabarovsk Region, has a vision for Gospel expansion and a compassion for the lost and dying. His longing is to reach all people groups with the message of hope.
Pastor Stas Efimov, the regional pastor and leader of the new initiative in Yakutia region, points out that it is very difficult to reach the communities due to the vastness of the area and the inhospitable conditions.
‘Many can only be reached via winter roads or ice-covered rivers. The planes are a great help with the missionary flights.’
We are thankful to the Lord for sending Michael Tsvirinko back from the USA to Far East Russia. He is a qualified pilot and is pioneering the aviation part of this project. There are already three planes based in Far East Russia.
