Justus and Rebecca Walker living

the Country life in Siberia

American Justus Walker organized a farm in a village in the Krasnoyarsk region.

In the depths of Siberia native of Kansas & nbsp; together with his wife Rebecca and two children & nbsp; has lived for 20 years. & Nbsp; First Walker was engaged in logging, but then decided it was more profitable to open a goat farm. A vegetable garden and pasture he had cleared the place where used to be the village dump.

How to boost agriculture in Russia Justus Walker told the press secretary of the Russian Agro Technical Forum.

& laquo; Russia in terms of products now lags behind countries such as Israel, which is essentially is desert, it should be in the first place, because it has the richest land resources in the world.

I can see how the surrounding villages slowly dying out. It is a sad picture. In order to persuade people to go to the village to work, we need the culture of farming. To me, as a farmer, could live in dignity, to work for themselves and not be afraid to take to the village of his family, need a normal, adequate bill receivable to private ownership of land for small-scale entrepreneurs. This property should be transmitted from generation to generation, partitionable and sold by.

Here is an example of America: in 1862 a law was passed, according to which every citizen of the United States could not get out of the lands of public fund land is not more than 65 hectares . Settler, proceed to the cultivation of the land and started to build a structure on it, getting the right free & nbsp; Property & nbsp; to this earth at the end of 5 years even without tax & ndash; about such a law is needed and Russia.

David and June Walker answered the call of the Lord in 1993, selling their possessions and moving, with their four children to Riga Latvia where they studied Russian, preparing to work in Siberia. Read more here.

How the Walker Family came to Siberia

In 1994 the Walker family found themselves in Krasnoyarsk, a city of a million people located in central Siberia.
David had always felt that the family’s mission would be to minister in rural areas that had never yet heard the  Gospel or had a Church. So in the fall of 1994 David and his two older children, Mycah and Justus, made several “scouting trips” to various towns and villages. By September they had discovered the town of Oseenavy Mees, in the Boguchany region north of Krasnoyarsk.

The next six years were spent in ministering in Oseenavy and the surrounding towns and villages. The ministry then included pastoring the small church in Oseenavy, feeding and housing needy children, helping with adoptions, assisting in the importing of humanitarian aid, teaching English, setting up youth camps and other youth outreach programs and assisting in setting up other churches in the area.

In 1996 David helped in the establishment of a church in Boguchany, the regional center. In 1998 a church was formed in Chuniyar, a town some forty kilometers east of Oseenavy, and in 1999 established a church in the Evenky territory far to the north.

In the year 2000 the Walker family returned to the US this time to stay. Justus, however, felt led of the Lord to return to Russia and continue the ministry.

For two years Justus served as the director of a Christian recording studio in Krasnoyarsk. During this time he continued to work with the rural churches, often traveling the circuit, preaching, teaching and exhorting the believers to stand strong.

In 2003 Justus stepped in as Pastor of the Oseenavy church when the current Pastor was unable to continue in that role. Justus continues to serve in the Boaguchany Region today. For more see here.
