Молитесь за Россию (Pray for Russia)

By Tom Castor | March 14, 2022 |

I hope this does not sound strange to my Christian readers. Yes, the Russian leadership today is orchestrating a war in the Ukraine. But we make a serious mistake when we believe that the entire Russian population (146,000,000) favors what is happening. They were not given a vote. Nor will their opinion be sought. Many are watching and feeling helpless to do anything about it, just as we are.

Russia needs our prayers.

Missiologists estimate that there are between three and four million people living in Russia who are evangelical Christians. There are more than 185 different people groups in Russia. More than 115 of those are considered Unreached. As many as 3.5 million Russian-born people currently live in the North America.

Clear and Simple Media was first asked to do a Russian translation while we were living in Vietnam. A Russian-American living in Ho Chi Minh City thought that the book would be helpful to some of his Christian friends back in Russia who were discipling new believers there. He soon connected with friends who had done Russian translation work on similar projects and within a few months, the Russian books were being distributed.

What follows are questions sixty-three (63) to sixty-seven (67) of Simple Truths ПРОСТЫЕ ИСТИНЫ, first in Russian, then in English translation.

If you would like a copy of the Russian book, you may download it HERE, and distribute it at your discretion.
