Russia suffered more than a thousand COVID-19 deaths every day last week, and the rate of new infections continues to soar. A week-long nationwide shutdown was scheduled to end Sunday, but some regional leaders chose to extend the restrictions.

This fourth wave of new infections and deaths began in late September. Rates rose daily last month, and some say the actual numbers far exceed government statistics.

The surge is not hindering Gospel work. Helen Williams of World Missionary Press says believers press on toward a 2023 goal. “We have had continuous communication with them,” Williams says.

“There’s been no indication that things have to come to a halt.”

Although their contacts have not mentioned any problems, she continues, it may not be accurate for every believer in the network. “There [are] lots of churches; it (the network) covers a large area, so it may depend on the individuals,” Williams says.
