Law in Russia about evangelizing directed at Islamic terrorism - Jews for Jesus got a letter of identification and their work has not been impeded
OCTOBER, 2016 BY JULIE BOURDON, Russia — We had no problems with the new Russian anti-terrorism law; it has not impeded our work. Susan Perleman, Assoc Exec Dir for Jews for Jesus branch in Russia at the Missio Nexus Leadership Conference said:
“When Putin put this forth, we were very of course interested to see how it would be
applied to those of us who would do direct evangelism. We distribute literature on
street corners, we talk to interested seekers, we arrange for meetings and have
visits with them afterwards; we've seen many come to know the Lord. We’ve had the opportunity to hand out over 157,000 Gospel tracks with no intervention by the police or the authorities. We’ve seen ten Jewish people and 27 Gentile Russians accept the Lord.”
When the law was passed, Jews For Jesus sought legal counsel which provided missionaries in Russia with a letter to carry with them in case they're confronted by authorities. But so far, Jews for Jesus has been left alone .. we wondered why other ministries have has difficulties in the new law. [Perhaps they don't get the proper identification or the letter. Clearly the new Russian law is to stop Islamic terrorism not evangelizing for the true God.]
