242 The Conference Message
which the faith and love of Christ’s people for Russia may find
expression without reference to denominational lines, carrying to her
people a Christ rather than a creed, and a personal Saviour rather
than any system of faith and order developed through centuries of
Encouraging Features
As an encouragement to immediate effort and for guidance as to
what the nature of that effort should be, the following facts should be
1. There are scores, and perhaps hundreds, of evangelical mission-
aries in Russia at the present time, who although banished from their
fields of labor and living in obscurity, are still heroes of the faith
and ready to engage in new effort for Christ if supported and encour-
aged in their work.
2. There is immediate need of hundreds of missionaries who are
familiar with the Russian and other Slavonic and Eastern languages.
These are not to be found in our theological seminaries but may be

Russia will also furnish Christian workers for our immigrant popu-

higher degree of citizenship and of furnishing religious leaders from
the immigrant population in America for work in Russia. So our
own nation will be blessed and a new bond of international sympathy
and world fellowship will be secured.
Plans Outlined
To achieve these aims The Alliance for the Evangelization of
Russia has been formed with certain definite purposes herein defined:
1. To hold conferences in different centers of the United States,
Canada, Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, and other countries, so that
the thrilling fact concerning Russia’s needs may arouse international
interest, and that united prayer may result in such outpouring of the
Holy Spirit upon the followers of Christ in all lands that these may
