On June 20, 1860 the military supply ship Manchur, under the command of Captain-Lieutenant Alexey K. Shefner, called at the Golden Horn Bay to found an outpost called Vladivostok. Warrant officer Nikolay Komarov with 28 soldiers and two non-commissioned officers under his command were brought from Nikolayevsk-on-Amur by ship to construct the first buildings of the future city.
Vladivostok is a city and the administrative center of Primorsky Krai, Russia, situated at the head of the Golden Horn Bay, not far from Russia's borders with China and North Korea. Vladivostok hosted the ongoing 24th Summit of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum. In preparation for the event, the infrastructure of the city was renovated and improved. Ethnic Russians and Ukrainians make up the majority of the population but there is also a large Chinese, Vietnamese and Uzbek population as well.
Pray for more Russian speaking full time staff.
Pray for the youth of the city to be discipled.
Pray for the ability to live in holiness as a staff while surrounded by corruption and injustice.
Pray for many Russian missionaries to come out of Vladivostok and go into East Asian and all of the world.
