With a Loud Voice

Here is the latest excerpt from a series of posts following Greg M. as he travels through Asia, meeting with SEBTS students and providing insight into the work God is doing around the world.

WITH A LOUD VOICE
Rev. 7:9-10

“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!’”

Peoples and nations represented:
Uzbek
Kabardian/Northern Caucases
Russian
Tartar
Bashkortostan
Kyrgystan
Tajikistan
American (me plus one)

Purpose:
To pray for Central Asians in and around Moscow.

Common language:
Russian

This was the scene last night–a multitude of nations represented as they prayed to the Lord of the harvest to send out more workers into the field to reach Muslims from Central Asia. It was quite an amazing and encouraging experience. These people are from different people groups, different nations, and different walks of life, but they now come together under the name of Christ and are working together to reach their own peoples here in Moscow. Many experienced persecution in their home countries, but realized that there is an unparalleled opportunity here in Moscow to reach Muslims. Their passion was evident as they prayed and planned for an upcoming outreach.

This group has been meeting for 1 1/2 years, and it began with just a couple of people. It was birthed from the vision of Central Asians to reach Central Asians. There were about 16 of us there last night. One gentleman, who is usually in attendance, was away in St. Petersburg in hopes of mobilizing Central Asians there to reach their own people. They want to see the name of Christ made famous among their peoples all around the globe–in Central Asia and beyond.

I was given the opportunity to pray a blessing over this group and their plans…I wish I knew Russian. This was truly an amazing evening. Pray that many more Central Asian Muslims would embrace the gospel here in Moscow.
