Rev. Leif Camp loads another shipment of LHF books to take to LHF's new Russian distribution center. "Russian culture has certainly changed in the 20 years, but the good news is that people still read," says Rev. Leif Camp, an American pastor called by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ingria (ELCI) in Russia.
"The bad news is that people have gotten caught up in the rat race, and money is more important than spiritual things," he explains.  "Also, the youth culture is seeking to 'catch up' with the West as far as degradation of sexual morals and behavior. The work [of the church] has shifted from establishing and re-establishing parishes to battling political and immoral forces."
When Rev. Camp first began his work of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ among the Russian people, he had precious few teaching materials at his disposal. Fortunately - both for Rev. Camp and for LHF - his path crossed with an LHF staff member who could help him.
Rev. Camp was the answer to LHF's prayer. When he heard of LHF's predicament, he offered to store the books at his church - for free. Two other free storage locations were also found in Novosibirsk and Ekaterinburg.
Now, the books have a home, and the materials he needs to share the Gospel are at his fingertips.
Even better, Rev. Camp has identified several new ways of distributing the books to other ELCI churches that have never before received LHF's books. LHF's first Russian book, God's No and God's Yes, is desperately needed, along with Luther's Small Catechism.
