The English lessons are in full swing! And it’s not only about English). It’s a great opportunity to make new friends and to broaden the worldview.
Thanksgiving Day in church today! And a seminar on conflict prevention and resolution in the evening.
The Uman church hosted their monthly family club today. This has been a very helpful event for members of the church. Today they were talking about what to do when “love” fades away.
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!
Glory to God for saved brothers and sisters!
We had our first Trinity Sabbath in this year! We just gather as a church on Saturday to spend time in studying the Scriptures, fellowship, prayer for missionary teams and projects, and for food afterward.
This is what a member of our church and missionary from Ukraine for Christ, Olena Yaroshuk writes:
Today I understood the amazing grace of God in the fact that I am a member of a church that I love, in which I can serve, and in which I see the Living Christ! We don’t have perfect management , organization, and we have a lot of room to grow. However, we are alive and open; the heart of our church burns with a passion to reach all nations and that is what we are doing.
