United Methodists from Russia and the United States gather once every other year to plan and support Methodist missions in Eurasia and Russia. There are approximately 100 United Methodist congregations in what was formerly the Soviet Union. This year’s Consultation in Memphis featured a live worship service via teleconference with ten Russian Methodist congregations. Bishop Khegay presented an update on The Roadmap that seeks to help Russian congregations achieve self-sufficiency by 2015. The next Consultation in 2015 will be held in Russia.

How this new period of his life will end time alone will prove.”
