Weather permitting, I leave for Russia on Monday. Below is an outline that you can use to follow my trip and pray for me while I’m gone.
Pray for Pastor Mark Wheeler serving in Russia
From February 23 – March 9, I will be serving at the House of Grace in Russia. Operated by John & Naomi Musgrave, the House of Grace is a guest house for Russian pastors in the village of Tsibanobalka, near Anapa on the Black Sea. It is a place where pastors can rest and renew along with their families, and where they can deepen their spiritual and emotional health.
During the winter, they offer several 3‑day concentrated courses for pastors and emerging leaders on different books of the Bible. In 2011, I taught on the book of Joshua. In 2012, I taught on the life of David. In 2014, I taught on the Patriarchs—Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, & Joseph. Carol went along in 2011 and 2014 and served behind the scenes. This year I will teach on the life of Moses. In addition to teaching in Tsibanobalka, I will teach the same course in Elista in the region of Kalmykia.
Thanks to your prayers and generous gifts, the trip is fully funded.
Here’s the schedule for the trip:
February 23-25 Travel (Boston – NYC – Moscow – Anapa – Tsibanobalka)
February 26-28 Teach class in Tsibanobalka
March 1 Church in Anapa
March 2-3 Travel (Anapa – Moscow – Elista)
March 4 Prepare for second class
March 5-7 Teach class in Elista
March 8-9 Travel (Elista – Moscow – Amsterdam – Boston)
Internet permitting, I will try to provide periodic updates and post them on here on the blog.
Please pray for Carol as she takes care of the home front.
Thanks for praying.
