Last year saw an amazing start to our ministry with Russian speakers in Kings Lynn. Daniel & Alisa Foytik came over for the year from Tver, Russian on voluntary workers visas. They were fantastic at making contacts and getting right into the heart of the Russian speaking migrant worker community. Kings Lynn is a dormitory town for fruit picking, flower picking and farming and fishing industries of the Fens and the Wash and we have at least 10% of our population from the Baltic States.
They are back in Russia for a break. Alisa tried for a job in a local school, but unfortunately didn’t have enough points on the immigration scheme for a more permanent visa. We would like to bring them back for another year – we believe that the brekathrough of Russian converts getting added to the church plant is just round the corner. They ran a successful Alpha course just before they came to the end of the year.
The issue for bringing them back is finance. Our start up grant covered their costs last year and so we need to raise £1000 a month to cover their living expenses – flights, accomodation, food allowance and ministry costs. 10 people sponsoring them by £80 per month gift aided would cover that. Can you help?
