A recent revisiting of a list of the PGs in Russia revealed that of the 10 largest non-Russian, non-Muslem UPGs in Russia - we are currently engaging only one of them with any type of personnel or witness (way to go Jack Gilliland- our VSC with 2nd largest - the Udmurt).
We currently have a serious campaign taking shape to engage the Chuvash (the largest of these groups with 1.8 million). This initiative will expand over the next few weeks and months to include others of these UPGs.
Right now, we are asking you to pray. Pray for the UPGs listed below. Pray that the Lord would send a key partner or an onsite M or whatever to help share the Good News with these many peoples. Pray that the Lord would make it clear how He would have YOU join HIM in Engaging Russia.
Chuvash 1.8 million -- Udmurt 770,000 -- Mordvin-Erzya 612,000 -- Low Mari 525,000 -- Ossetian 462,000 -- Yakut 439,000 -- Mordvin-Moksha 428,000 -- Komi-Zyrian 345,000 -- Tuvin 312,000 -- Vlach Romani 180,000 - - - -
