Here a community of 500 Sabbath-keeping immigrants has established a church. Two hundred-ninety are baptized; the remainder is children. They also have an affiliate church in Springfield, Missouri, about 100 miles away, with an additional 150 people. And, there is yet another Sabbatarian church called “Church of Christians of the Sabbath Day” from Portland that has resettled 50 or so to Springfield. Vladimir Pavlov, their Portland pastor, recently died. The pastor of the Springfield congregation is the son of the deceased pastor. We visited them in Portland this past April. It is this church that financed two boreholes in Zambia for LifeNets and you can read that story here
