    Earl Samuel Poysti passed away on March 8, 2010 at the age of 89

    Reverend Earl S. Poysti passed away peacefully in his home in Estes Park on March 8, 2010 at the age of 89. Born Oct. 9, 1920 in Siberia, Russia, he grew up in the home of Finnish missionary parents who were called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution. After being forced to leave Russia, they continued ministry to the Russian people in Harbin, Manchuria. It was here that Earl Poysti committed his life to Christ. The Poysti family eventually relocated to New York City where Earl studied at the National Bible Institute and New York University, obtaining a degree in religious studies.

    In 1949 Earl married Pirkko Suomela who had come from Finland to study at the National Bible Institute in New York. The Lord blessed them with ten children.

    Earl served in a variety of Christian ministries including the Eastern European Mission where he was responsible for the production of Russian gospel radio programs. Earl and Pirkko were led to dedicate their lives to preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Russian people through radio broadcasts. Because religious activities were severely curtailed during the Communist era, Earl`s radio programs played a vital role in reaching unbelievers and in nurturing believers. Earl`s life long passion was 'millions of Russians for Christ.` This single-minded pursuit led him and his family to live in Europe and USA to work with a number of Christian broadcasters before founding Russian Christian Radio. Later Russian Christian Radio expanded to include evangelistic crusades in the former USSR, prison ministries, publications and other media.

    From Jan. 6, 1962 to the present Earl Poysti`s voice is still heard. To the end of his life he believed Romans 1:16: "I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes."

    His beloved wife, Pirkko Poysti passed away in May, 1994. On Oct. 21, 1995 Earl married Natalia Makarenko from Kazakhstan, who also became a faithful partner in Earl`s life and ministry.

    He is lovingly remembered by his wife, Natalia Poysti; his children Tamara Poysti Hill (Joe), Tatjana Poysti Baylis (Ken), John Poysti (Christine), Keith Poysti (Heidi), Teresa Poysti Campbell (Steve), Charles Poysti, Robert Poysti (Jenea), Philip Poysti (Eva), Natasha Poysti Campbell (Ken), as well as 25 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by Pirkko Suomela Poysti, his son Dwight Poysti, his daughter in law Nancy Poysti, his brother Daniel Poysti and his sister Mary Poysti Walegir.

    There will be a memorial service, Saturday, March 13 at 11 a.m. at Mountain View Bible Fellowship, 1575 S. St. Vrain Ave., Estes Park.

    Donations may be made to a special project of Russian Christian Radio - the publication of Earl Poysti`s sermons, in care of Allnutt Funeral Service, 1302 Graves Avenue, Estes Park, CO 80517. See allnutt.com to see Earl`s on-line obituary and send a message to the family.

    Condolences on the death of Earl Samuel Poyst

    Dear friends in North America!

    We have been informed on the passing of Earl Samuel Poysti – whom we in Russia got to know and love as Yarl Nikolaiyevich Peisti. What a witness! An American citizen of Swedish-Finnish-Russian background, who blessed many thousands of Russian-speakers via the airways beginning 64 years ago. Though his family and he himself had suffered greatly at the hands of the communists, Yarl never forgot the people in his country of birth and committed his life to serving and witnessing to them. Not only he, but also his father and his own children have been very active in the spreading of God’s Word. Also his mother and two wives dare not to be forgotten for their service in the ministry of Christ!

    But he was much more than “just” a radio preacher on “Russian Christian Radio” and many other stations. The Dom Pirkko rehabilitation centers created in the Former Soviet Union after 1990 have proven to be a great blessing to prisoners, former prisoners and others!

    Yarl Nikolaiyevich has passed on to his Maker – but may God bless the continuation and growth of the ministries which he was able to help create!

    We Russian Baptists greet Yarl’s family and friends heartily with the promise from ICortinthians 15:22 for which all of us live and die: “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.”

    Your brother in Christ,
    Rev. Yuri Sipko
    President, Russian Union of Evangelical Christians-Baptists
