October 29, 1999 Novomarievskaia, Stavropol'
Above are photos of a church in Stavropol Russia, Colony Novomarievskaya. [Click on photos to ENLARGE.] A few churches and individual people helped to build it to it's present stage. An amount of $10,000 to $11,000, will be needed to complete the building, equip the kitchen and purchase a furnace. [See map that shows Novomarievskaya to be 10 miles northwest of Stavropol'. Paul Slivkoff helped raise funds to build the church in Nadezhda, 5 miles east of Stavropol'. The Molokan church in Shpakovsoie, 5 miles north of Stavropol', was built mainly by refugees from Azerbiadjan.]
The Minister and 9 elders are listed below. They all belong to the Molokan Spiritual Christian Church, (Priguni sect.) For 77 years, the religious people in Russia were denied the right to go to church and worship. Now they are free to worship and could build a House of Worship, but they have no money to do so. They have a hard time feeding themselves and their children. We ask everyone to please open your hearts and send a donation so they could complete their church. Donations can be sent to me at the address below.
