This book is intended to report in all humility about the hard battles and difficulties which this small flock encountered in Russia at at that time, and how the Lord preserved a remnant which is the church of today. Not the steadfastness s of the believers will be emphasized, but rather the miraculous ways of God, Who save His people in spite of their weakness and many faults. To Him be the honor!

The authors of this book, the father, Heinrich, born in 1906, and the son, Gerhard, in 1941─since 1960 took an active part in the church work in Karaganda and were able to accumulate a number of documents relating to this work. Encouraged by J.B. Toews of Fresno, California, we approached the task. Brother Toews took the trouble of its publication upon himself.
