Come meet pastor Stas Efimov from the Russian region of Yakutia, Sunday, August 19th from 6pm-8pm at the Slawsons' home, 4180 SE Hillyard Rd, Gresham. Pastor Efimov will be sharing in English about his ministry in this vast remote part of Siberia where winter temperatures can drop to -65˚F and even lower.
