With careful planning and caution, Jonathan has begun traveling again. He conducted five conferences this fall in Ukraine, Russia, and Turkey. Multiple training events are planned throughout 2022. In January, Jonathan will hold 3 events in Africa. Our Regional Directors, Ministry Partners, and Women’s Ministry Directors have also been busy this year, continuing online training and live training where possible. We have highlighted just a few of these events in pictures. Thank you for your partnership and prayers!

New Regional Director for Russia:

We are excited to announce that Rev. Sergey Naboychenko will lead the BMI mentorship movement in Russia. We have known him since 2014. Sergey was a former aeronautical engineer who became ordained as a pastor in 2000. He is a gifted teacher who is well-qualified and thoroughly trained in the BMI materials.

Other Updates from the Region:

Call him “Dr. Dr. !” Dr. Vitaly Sorokun, BMI Regional Director for Eastern Europe, received an honorary DMin degree from Irpin Bible Seminary in Ukraine. Vitaly already has an earned doctorate in international law! We are so thankful for his life and how the Lord has blessed him with such a keen mind and a warm heart for God!
