Many of you have heard of our dear friends Tanya and Vova Burnashev from previous updates. I (Thomas) met Vova eleven years ago when I first visited Russia in his village of Namtsy, Yakutia. Since then Vova has grown into a mature Christian and married a wonderful young Christian woman, Tanya. They returned to Yakutia in April of this year and serve as missionaries among the Yakut (Sakha) people. Below is a link to their latest update letter and a video of scenes from this summer that they’ve put together.
Tanya and Vova must rely upon monthly support just like other missionaries, and for them being Russian citizens in a country that has only a tiny Christian community, it is much harder to find supporters. Please prayerfully consider supporting them. If you’re interested, leave a comment below and I’ll send you information as to how you can do this.
