Prayer Requests from some of our Developing Global Leader students:
stamina as they balance their family life, school work, and Young Life responsibilities
to reach more kids through discipleship this summer
that the plans and dreams from each of these leaders would come to fruition this year
Rock Presbyterian Church continues to support our mission project in Nicaragua


Vida Joven

A Word From Vida Joven - Greetings to all the members of the Rock Church,
I am Ludem Gonzalez from Nicaragua. I want to share with all of you some miracles happening in our country with the youth and the Vida Joven Ministry.
The country has had many problems since 2018. First, political problems throughout the country and then Covid-19. These problems were strong for everyone because many things changed. We had to innovate the way to take the gospel to each problem. We carried out activities online, such as discipleship and pastoral care among other activities. Then, we could meet in small groups with security protocol, to the point when we could do more open things.
Today we are taking the gospel in every neighborhood, college, and university where we are. God is opening doors to reach more people.
Thank you, Rock church; thank you to each member who supports us. Thank you to Pastor Chris and his family for loving Vida Joven and for the unconditional love for my family; hugs for everyone. May the peace of Christ be with you.
Gracias amigos por todo:
En Cristo Jesus,
Ludem Gonzalez

A Note from Russia


A note from Pastor Debby - Don and I have had the joy of knowing Alex Krutov about 15 years.  We met Alex through my seminary roommate, Melinda Cathey.  Melinda and her husband were missionaries in St. Petersburg, Russia, and met Alex, who had been an orphan there.  Melinda and Alex founded The Harbor.  Alex has an amazing testimony.  Here is a little bit about him.

A word from Alex & Amy Krutov, our new missionaries in Russia - Amy and I and our son, Levi, are serving the Lord in St. Petersburg, Russia with The Harbor.  The Harbor is a ministry to orphans who have aged out of the State Orphanage system.  For the first 18 years of my life, I grew up in the orphanages in the Soviet Union.  I accepted the Lord as a result of spending time with American missionaries (including the Navigators) in the early 90s, which was at the time of a great spiritual revival.  Upon leaving the Orphanage State System, I was blessed to go to the United States where I received a college education and felt called to serve orphans in Russia.  I have now been involved in orphan care ministry for over 20 years.  I am Co-Founder and CEO of The Harbor ministry. Amy is a CPA by trade and was called to become a missionary to Siberia, Russia.  There she studied at the linguistic university and was heavily involved with student and children’s ministry.  Amy and I were married in August 2018 and she moved to St. Petersburg to live and minister at The Harbor.  We are blessed with a son, Levi, who was born at the beginning of 2020.  It has been a great honor and privilege to serve the Lord by caring for the “least of these” for so many years.  During this time, we have witnessed hundreds of radical transformations.  We cannot wait to see what else the Lord will do as we continue to be the hands and feet of Christ.  We thank you for your love, prayers, and support.
