Thanksgiving Day in church today! And a seminar on conflict prevention and resolution in the evening.

On 17 September 2017, representatives of Protestant churches in Ukraine united for the first time to hold a common Thanksgiving day celebration on Kyiv’s main street, vul. Khreshchatyk. The celebrations were held as part of the year celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation and united all representatives of Protestant confessions in Ukraine: Anglicans, 7th day Adventists, Baptists, Lutherans, Methodists, Mennonites, Presbyterians, Charismatic Christians.
Yesterday in the downtown of Kiev thousands of Evangelical Christians gathered on Maidan to celebrate Thanksgiving and 500 years of Reformation! Nobody can say for sure how big the crowd was. Some are saying 100000, others are claiming the numbers up to 5 times higher. In any case, it’s incredible – for a country with such a recent history of aggressive atheism. God is at work in Ukraine! To Him be the Glory!
A new school year has begun. Today we met with new recruits. The guys are open and creative. We talked with them about the poor in spirit, as an illustration to the parable about the Pharisee and the tax collector.
Glory to God for saved brothers and sisters!
