THE WORK IN RUSSIA

As of the beginning of 2020 it is illegal for believers to assemble to worship who are not Russian Orthodox, either in public buildings or personal flats. A small group of believers south of Moscow have found a way to provide themselves a meeting place legally and above board. The laws are different for meeting on the premises of a business with  the permission of the landowner. We're trying to raise money so that these believers can purchase a modest profitable business with property downtown, easy to find and reach by three city bus lines. It happens to have a third-floor that is empty and waiting for believers to gather together in safety and protection legally there. The cost of this business is providing a meeting place for them to worship that is far less than what it would cost us to build a church building in the US.

We need to raise these funds as quickly as possible to take advantage of the present owner offering the deal on contract, without interest and unsecured except for the property.

Please also note that is the intention of those believers to use the profits from the business to repay any money that's given. They're not asking for charity but for a helping hand which they intend to repay. If you donate and desire to be repaid simply hit the contact button and send me your name and address and email. I'll be keeping that list of helpers.

Can you possibly help these believers have a place to worship in safety and within the law? Surely the Lord will remember those who remember his people, and who could not sit in comfort in houses of worship knowing that brothers and sisters are kept from worship by the government legalities of not owning a place.
