Missionary Highlight: Kotenev Family in Russia

Dmitriy Kotenev was born in Kazakhstan. He accepted Christ in his 20s and received a calling to serve the Lord in formerly Communist lands. Following his call, he came to study to Moldova. I (Oleg) had Dmitriy in my theology and spiritual formation courses at the Christian college where I taught for 1o years. Dmitriy was an outstanding student. He graduated in 2009, and we kept in touch since then.

Responding to God's calling, two years ago, Dmitriy and his family moved to Russian Siberian town of Rubtsovsk where Dmitriy was ordained to pastoral ministry in a local Baptist church. It is an honour for us at Turlac Mission to support Dmitriy and his work. The Kotenevs are expecting their fourth child (hoping for a boy!) in April 2015.

You can support missionary families in the formerly Communist lands by making an on-line donation here. Please, designate your gift to Turlac Mission. Thank you!
