25 December 2013 In 2013

The month has started with the "landing party" in city of Armyansk (at the bottle neck between Crimea and the mainland country) teaching intensive course on Logics for church leaders of Southern Ukraine using the Bible for examples and assignments (see the pictures attached). Since Soviet Union times schools do not teach Logics, as well as very few special University programs did. Logical illiteracy was making people vulnerable for communist propaganda. This legacy makes the church vulnerable for false teachings and God's word compromising with godless ideas. That is why we believe this is so important to edify teachers, ministers, evangelists and lay leaders in that area. All the classes were properly videotaped and will be available online for everyone after editing. Please keep the outcome in your prayers.

During that course we had a special discussion with the group on the importance of shaping next generation worldview through motivating parents to teach their kids Biblical foundations on Science - an alternative to what they are loaded with daily by post-communist totalitarian education system. Most of believers in our part of the world just do not realize that telling children about God is a part of the greatest commandment Jesus referred to (Deuteronomy 6:4-7). Being highly accustomed to the idea that the government is responsible for educating their children at school, parents think Sunday School takes care in a same way about raising them godly. No wonder parents are surprised later on why their children leave the church growing adult as well as why they think the government is going to be responsible for their elderly parents.

A bishop of South Ukraine independent churches family who attended the course became touched and aware of the issue greatly and pleaded if we could come to his town of Krasnoperekopsk without a delay till the next year and make a day conference specifically on the issue of the parents' responsibilities. As you know, Christmas celebration comes on January 7th (December 25 by Julian calendar) in our part of the world, and, since we completed all the projects we planned for the year already, could not refuse another "landing party" opportunity. So, Krasnoperekopsk became another new place we have visited to serve at this year (see the picture attached). Please pray for the seeds planted and for the ministry development there.

It became a good tradition to make a Young Bible Scholars contest at the end of the year at Yuzhnoe near Odessa. And we traditionally supplied all participants with gifts - videos and books on the Bible veracity (see the pictures attached).

You know, I envy these children who are trained up with the Word of God in the way they should go (Pr. 22:6). The greatest regret of my own life is that I spent more then a half of it without knowing the Lord. But at the same time I am happy know who is going to take the baton after us! May the Lord guide and lead them in that way!

Crimean weather surprises (like rains going on for a while or freezing temperatures) slowed down external works at the Training Center construction. Nevertheless the progress is going on (see the pictures attached). We are about to pour the Conference Center second level concrete slab which is going to be the biggest and the most expensive single piece of entire project. Please continue to lift Eurasian Training Center up to the Lord in your prayers. May the One who has provided the opportunity to start this great project will carry it on to completion for the glory of Christ Jesus!

Looking back to the year that passed, we praise the Lord for everything He is doing in our life and the ministry. We thank Him for keeping us safe as we travel teaching and preaching; for surrounding us with likeminded people in a difficult task of challenging post-communist education system; for giving us wisdom as we speak at multiple teachers and pastors conferences; for guiding us through camps for both children and adults; for helping us keep up with the publishing work; for strengthening us in the greatest publishing project, a series of Christian textbooks on Science that is now complete; for bringing teachers from all over the former Soviet Union to the Visual Media Aid training camp; for encouraging us with an award the music video we produced won at a Christian media contest; for giving us an opportunity to continue the construction of our greatest dream, Multi-Purpose Resource Center. We thank Him especially for you, faithful co-workers, friends and helpers on the labor at His field!

As all the fruit is laid at His throne, let me thank you for your constant care, prayers and help that has kept us going throughout the years. We praise the Lord, Who has faithfully leads and guides us as well as thank Him for great joy and privilege to partner with you in the adventure of serving Him together!
