SLAVIC SEMINARS, RALLIES: NORTH AMERICA REPORT!
Volume XXXXIII  No. 3

Recently I looked in the dictionary for the definition of "seminar".  This is what I read:

"A group of students engaged, under the guidance of an instructor, in original research in a particular line of study, and in the exposition of the results by theses, lectures, etc.; -- called also seminary".

The word seminar also means "seminary". This past year, across North America, we have had seminars and soul winning rallies that have been blessed of the Lord.  Though they have been of short duration, (usually just when we are passing through North America) they have proved to be a great blessing.  We have had the best soul winning altar calls we have ever had in North America.  Hundreds coming, weeping and receiving what they needed when I have given the call to come to Jesus.

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union and Communism more than 12 years ago, millions of former citizens of the USSR have left their lands in search of a better life.  Millions have come to the USA.  For an example 15 years ago there was only one Slavic Church in Seattle, Washington.  Now in the area, there are more than 45 churches with membership up to 2,500.  In Sacramento, California they now have over 80 churches in the city.  The largest that we have preached in has over 4,000 members, having an attendance of 6,000 when counting children where Brother Bonderuk is pastor.  We have taught in their Bible Training School with over 200 students.  God is raising up soul winners not only winning Slavic but winning the whole world to Christ.

This past year Walter Zygarewicz, Marge and I held leadership seminars, youth and soul winning rallies in Lincoln, Nebraska, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Everett, Tacoma, Seattle, Washington, Florida, San Francisco and Sacramento, California. From these Leadership Seminars, we believe God is raising up many workers who will and are already now going into the entire world, preaching the Gospel. When we have given the call for surrender to the perfect Will of God and Call to the ministry, we have seen many hundreds this past year answer the Call with tears.  We have seen the largest altar calls in our North American ministry among these precious Slavic people, with up to 500 in a single service, coming to the Living Christ.  Most are Russian and Ukrainian but there are also people from Belarus, Poland, the former Yugoslavian states, Bulgaria, Chez, Slovakia, and many more Slavic people from the other countries that made up the former USSR.

Most of the time we have worked and arranged these meetings in between our missions when passing through the USA has permitted us to do so.  We have had invitations to return and invitations from many others parts of North America.  Sometimes it seems strange to have to use a Russian interpreter in the USA.  However, not so, if the seminar is held immediately after returning from Ukraine or Russia where we had been using them.  We believe these people and churches are going to have a great impact on North America.

I remember about eight years ago, I was asked to fill in for David Wilkerson at the North American Slavic Conference outside of Seattle. (I was in Jr. High School with his brother Donald when I was a teenager.) There were about 7,000 Slavic people attending. At this time I was still feeling that all these believers that had left the former USSR were taking the light out with them. However, now I see a bit of God?s Wisdom. (Isa 55:9 KJV) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Many hungry hearts for the Word!

With these leaving, first, God has raised up in the former USSR a new generation of workers with a fresh vision for their nations. Secondly, many of those believers who have left their homelands have found prosperity and now are giving much for the Work of God in the former USSR to evangelize. Thirdly, God has prepared many of these and their children who have left their homeland as laymen and are now returning with the Word, anointing and funds to evangelize their former home countries.

In addition to this, having the knowledge, language and customs, they are also able, with their passports, to travel and preach where many Americans and people from the West cannot go such as the Middle East Muslim countries.

There has been prophecy that God is going to use the Slavic and Chinese people to evangelize the Arab and Muslim countries of the world. Truly Romans 8:28 is at work here. (Rom 8:28 KJV) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Praise God for moving by His Sprit and confirming His Word!
