March - April 2009

Home for a Wedding

Ruth and I traveled back to the states for the March 21 wedding of our oldest son, David, and the lovely Audrey Snyder! The wedding was so beautiful, and we are very pleased with our son’s choice of a bride. David is a staff member at Northwest Bible Baptist Church in Elgin, Illinois.

We decided to stay in America for a few months to spend some needed time with our family. We plan to return to Russia on May 20. Missionary Travis Decker and his family are taking care of the ministry in Oryol while we are gone.

We have paid $37,250 for our church building, which is about 72% of the loan amount. You may want to help by sending a gift to: BIMI, P.O. Box 9215, Chattanooga, TN 37412. Designate it for “Ossewaarde - Project Russian Church Building”.

In the service of the King,
Don Ossewaarde
