SISTER CHURCH RUSSIA
In the spring of 1993, Pastors Phil and Jan White led a team of eight people to Saratov, Russia to hold a six-week evangelistic series as part of the North Pacific Union Conference Operation Bear Hug Initiative. Since then, our pastors have forged a lasting relationship with the Seventh-day Adventists in Saratov. They have helped to transform many lives through preaching the word of God. In July 2013 Pastor Phil returned to Saratov to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the church that had been built as a result of those meetings. We are proud of our pastors' work with our sister church in Russia.
