The sign from the above is clear: we should talking less about the need to train young people for ministry, and do it more! During the year we were hesitating to refuse any speaking invitations recently (unless they are conflicting in time), since all of them are great opportunities, but our schedule became too hectic again as a result. We have to be more selective in future and focus on training the youth.

Actually, God leads us already in that direction by the cooperation with a Ukrainian branch of Commonwealth International University in 'Impact' project - a small (so far) group of young devoted folks who is getting a secular trade ("tent making" skills to be a self-supporting when necessary) and in the same time getting a special training as missionaries. I had an introductory class with them on the evangelism biblical strategy right before leaving for St.Peterburg (see the pictures attached). Please pray for this initiative development - God shaped that program right in time!

The interrupted trip to St.Peterburg and canceled Kursk-Voronyezh ride provided the time not for health care only, but also for prayerful consideration of the ministry focus change for training and equipping young Christians to teach others General Evangelism, Creation Evangelism and Apologetics. The main problem we face in the times of a total apathy is finding young peoplewho do care about the ministry, not about making the life easier. Nothing got change: the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. We are going to involve four students of the 'Impact' program into the ministry as much as we can; to send them to various conferences for additional training, as well as provide them internship opportunities prior to sending them out for the ministry. Please pray for these young children of God and for more students in the program next year.

newsletter september2011 cAnother way we are going to take is finding young faithful servants of Jesus in other areas (the ones who do know all ins and outs in their regions and cultures) and giving them proper training for teaching others at the places they live and serve. This is the idea our dream on the Multy-purpose resource center (http://www.scienceandapologetics.com/engl/our_dream.htm) grew from. But even now we are able to do more! First of all we are going actively use our Small Groups Retreat House inviting young apologists from various regions to come for intensive training. The schedule is going to be sorted out by the end of the winter, but the first priority goes to the group from St.Peterburg I have interrupted the trip to. The debt should be returned.

At the same time, in order to involve more young apologists not from the groups we do have a contact with already, we are introducing completely new project. We named it "FD-222". "FD" stands for “Fidei Devensor”, “Defender of the Faith” (Latin) — a title of British royalty since Henry VIII (ironically, he, the first protestant king, got it for anti-protestant polemics). In Jesus, however, everyone receivesboth royal vocation (1 Peter 2:9) and the calling to earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints (Jude 3), therefore every Christian should strive to be worthy of that title! "222" stands for the goal of the project: "And the things that you have heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit you to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also (2 Timothy 2:2).

The key event of the project is going to be a summer youth camp with intensive training. However in order to get there one should work hard with heavy pre-camp study assignments. After the camp students will have some more assignments and by the end of the program they should perform a seminar on any issue they studied at the Project and will receive a FD certificate afterwards. Please pray for the Lord's guidance in this new venture as well as for sending us many young gifted believers to whom we could pass the baton eventually.
