From Jerusalem to the Ends of the Earth
Situated in the far east, just north of Japan, Sakhalin is the biggest island in the Russian Federation. The shape of this beautiful island resembles the Dead Sea, and its size is 4 times bigger than the entire State of Israel. Many years ago the Tsar (King) of Russia used Sakhalin as an exile, and there were no churches there until 40 years ago. Now the island is home to more than a hundred churches, most of them Protestant.

 
The ICEJ held a series of ten meetings on the island, to help the churches there understand Biblical teaching about Israel and the chosen people, and also to encourage people to attend the Feast of Tabernacles celebration. During one event, Pastor Elena Eremeeva of ICEJ-Russia was appointed as the official Representative of the ICEJ in Sakhalin Island, reflecting the increased interest in Israel among the local believers.
