A letter from Moscow
Hello! M. Abraham Song and I went to Korea in mid-February and safely came back to Moscow at the end of April. During that period, M. Abraham's jaw was treated by Sh. Samuel Choi there and we also attended the Korea Easter Bible Conference by the grace of God. Praise and thanks to Jesus who broke the power of death and rose again from the dead by the holy power of God.
Last week, we finished Genesis Bible study and started Hebrews from this week. Through Genesis Bible study, we all learned that the maturity and goal of our faith should be similar to the divine love of Joseph who forgave all his brothers’ sins and helped them to repent and his absolute faith in God’s sovereignty. For this, we learned that we have to practice unconditional love throughout our lifetime. In fearing God, I made a decision of faith again to bear beautiful fruit of overcoming evil with good.
Thank God that some Russian shepherds of Moscow UBF came back from the joint Easter Bible Conference (Odessa, Minsk and St. Petersburg), who gracefully shared their reports. We were so glad and thankful to see the family of Sh. Alex and Victoria in Springfield with their son Vlazic who recently visited us. And we also thank God for the 2nd gen, Eunhye So, who visited Moscow full of thanksgiving after studying one year at the North Park college in Chicago. Thank God for Abraham Song Jr. who is on summer vacation in Washington DC learning through early morning devotionals and having 1:1 with M. Jacob Lee and inviting campus students to Bible study. We pray for him to choose the best academic advisor for his major. On the other hand, our daughter postponed her graduation which was supposed to be last February. I believe that God is training her before graduation to be a well prepared spiritual woman first, whom God can use, and to graduate by faith.
We began to pray for the Moscow UBF Summer Bible Retreat which will be in late August. We pray that the Holy Spirit may make a good spiritual environment for young students, in which the strong words of God can work mightily. I also pray that I may fully devote myself to 1:1 Bible study with campus Russian sisters. Many of our co-workers are suffering from spring allergies, but thankfully we are coping with it without complaints in the grace of God learning deeply about Jesus’ suffering.
May God bless M. Abraham Song and me even in 2015 to be spiritually awake and to be good holy instruments of God to glorify the Lord only, together!
