“God is at work in the countries of the former Soviet Union.”
17 July 2012 – It’s Staff Tuesday, and this week you have the opportunity to meet the Siemens! This couple has been serving with TWR for many years, being directly involved in the critical ministries of Russia, Ukraine, and Central Asia.
Nick and Debbie are veteran TWR missionaries. Nick was born in the former Soviet Union and came to TWR in 1977 in response to a need in the Russian department in Monte Carlo. Debbie is from the States and served short-term in Monte Carlo in 1979. This is where they met and fell in love. They were married in May of 1980.
“served faithfully in Monte Carlo for many years”
Nick and Debbie served faithfully in Monte Carlo for many years. Nick served as a program producer in the Russian department and as a studio technician. Debbie auditioned English programs. In 1987, the TWR Russian department was moved from Monte Carlo to TWR’s international partner, ERF Medien, in Wetzlar, Germany.
“They treasure every opportunity to experience the ministry firsthand”
Nick continues as a vital part of the Russian/Ukrainian ministry and spends many weeks away from home in his work-related travels. Debbie is the assistant to the TWR Central Asian ministry director and helps coordinate the ministry for that region. They treasure every opportunity they have to travel into the various countries to meet with the local staff and experience the ministry firsthand. God is at work in the countries of the former Soviet Union.
