PECHORA (RUSSIA) – Any birthday party means friends, congratulations, new memories and positive emotions and joy that you share with the loved ones. The Source of Life Church of Pechora had time just like that last week.

Business-trainer, graduate of the Oral Roberts University Mark Kudrov shared the Word.
Sermons of the speakers had a common keynote: “Close relationships with God and people”. The ministers encouraged the community to dwell in love, forgiveness and obedience to God.
A performance group of the church presented a dance. The speakers congratulated pastors Grant and Elena Burnadze and spoke the words of gratitude for their work at God’s race.
The preparation to the celebration was a lot of fun. The church family participated in a bout of cleaning, decorated the hall. Participants of the One Year for Jesus —Yoyuth Project from Perm, who came to Pechora for practice, helped organizing the conference.
Pastor Elena Burnadze shared her impressions about the conference: “We expected God’s presence, powerful prayers, revelations and council from God’s anointed people and fellowship. All our expectations turned into reality. At the conference we felt a special presence when God was addressing the hearts, was inspiring was, improved us, and the prayer was most powerful and anointed. God is good!”
The plans of the church are to preach God’s Word to people of Pechora and to minister to them. It was a remarkable time when the Christians filled with God’s power to continue the effective ministry.
