Jeff in Russia
This past Thursday, June 30th, Jeff left for Moscow to meet Stan Scroggins from First Baptist Church of Magnolia, Arkansas who is bringing a team of basketball players. Their mission is to do a basketball camp and use that as a means to witness Christ. Jeff is there to get them from Moscow to their village of destination. Then he leaves, passing through Kiev for only 8 hours, before he get back on a plane for the country of Georgia. As many of you will recall the conflict between Russia and Georgia that I wrote about last year has cut off air transport between the two countries.
Please be in prayer for the basketball team (Volunteer Student Missionaries), for Jeff and for the Baptist Medical Missions(BMMI) team he will meet in Georgia. They will once again try to minister in the town of Gori where they were when the first bomb was dropped on Georgia last year. We are trusting in the Lord that this time will be without incident. It is all in his hands.
