Night of Missions: Peter Iliyn talks about Divine Appointments

Peter Iliyn spoke at our October Night of Missions. He spoke about taking seriously our divine appointments that God gives us, keeping up with the people whom God has put in our lives. He weaves a wonderful story, and holds his audience captive, all the while challenging us in our missional thinking.

Peter was born in Paraguay to parents who emigrated from Russia. Raised in the Russian culture and language, he continued his education at the University of CaliforniaBerkeley, where he earned his BS in electrical engineering and material science. Peter joined Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in 1976, and has been able to cross barriers throughout the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe with his ministry.
Peter has traveled and ministered in over seventy-five countries across Asia, South America, Australia, and throughout Eastern and Western Europe. Currently he is the North American Director for YWAM. He and his wife Luba have four children and live in JeffersonOregon.

He has authored a book, Out of the Far Corners, recounting the story of his father’s emigration from Russia. Vanya Iliyn’s formative years were spent on the move, traveling the far corners of the world—Russia, Central China, and the Americas—amid seemingly impossible hardships. His journey crossed the landscape of his heart as well. Orphaned and alone, Vanya could look only to God for protection, guidance, and grace. His remarkable story speaks to the power and majesty of God.
