Igor is one of very few Russian men who are involved in full-time ministry to orphans.
Children who spend their lives in orphanages very much need a father figure in their lives.
As Igor says, "If orphans need a father's love, I will take it to them."
Also, he shares with orphan children about their loving heavenly Father and how they can be a part of His kingdom.
As we write this, Igor is heading into a very intensive 10-day camp for orphans. He asks that we pray for him and his ministry as he goes forth. As Igor wrote to us today: "The next 10 days will be difficult but it is very welcome!"
We recently learned that Igor has been invited to participate in the Global Leadership Forum, a gathering of world orphan ministries that takes place two days before the Orphan Summit 2013 in Nashville, Tennessee. (If you are not aware of the Orphan Summit, you can learn more on their website here.)
Igor has a very busy and intense schedule working with orphans. The Leadership Forum and the Summit would provide an opportunity for him to experience refreshment and renewal, to learn about other orphan ministries, and to share his experiences with others.
Some friends of Igor in the USA are raising funds to help buy his airline ticket. Cost will be about $1,200. If you know of anyone who is interested in donating to help get Igor to the Forum and the Summit, can you let them know about this posting?
