Sea of Galilee

These two months have been an exciting culmination of a glorious year! We were so busy we didn’t even have the time to write a brief newsletter in between! We are still experiencing the same blessing the first church in Jerusalem received through the persecutions and dispersion: rather than declining, the movement multiplies through the partners and volunteers who spread it everywhere they have sought refuge. As a result, I am mostly involved in training and coaching, and enjoy seeing my former students and partners growing and leading their disciples. May the Lord be praised!

It was a great joy to teach a Systematic Apologetics course at the Tavriysky Christian Institute. Despite many years of partnership, I had not taught there for a while and was very glad to see that the school is growing in many areas! All students of the distant-learning program were gathered together (please see the pictures attached), and we spent a great week exploring Biblical approaches and strategies for the effective spreading of the Kingdom and making the children of the Kingdom grow stronger in their faith. Please join our prayers for these students so that they continue to explore and share the Biblical truth in the best way!

The youth seminar “Science and the Bible” was one of the most exciting experiences of the year! A youth group from the local church had distributed invitations at the universities of the city, and arranged and decorated the hall (see the pictures attached). More than 300 people attended the event; many came with their unbelieving friends. About half of the time was allotted for a Questions and Answers session. It was a joyful time of exploration, humour, challenges and praise. What a great generation will come after us! Let us pray together for these young professionals of the future who are going to build a new life for our country on a solid biblical foundation!

The updated version of the course on Biblical Anthropology was a great opportunity for the fellowship with our group of Joint School for Christian Apologetics – an institution where the students and graduates of other schools are working on an additional degree in Apologetics. After three years of learning together, they are like a family (see the pictures attached). By exploring together the biblical aspects of our origins, nature and purpose, we have created a foundation for the course on Cross-cultural Evangelism we are developing. We are going to field-test it in January and produce a video version of it for missionaries and ministers working in the restricted areas of the Ukraine. Please join our prayers for that project.

One of the most important events of the year has been the Eastern-European Leadership Forum where I coordinated the Apologetics Section (see the pictures attached). EELF is becoming a great platform for developing national Christian leaders from the countries of the former Soviet Union. Praised be the Lord!

The highlight of the year was our trip to Israel to teach at the Haifa Theological Institute (see the pictures attached). It was arranged by Michael (Misha) Klimov who had been a very special member of our team for two decades. As a volunteer, he became actively involved in our projects back in his years as a high-school student, and eventually became a full-time part of the family. As a person of many talents, very gifted and creative, he did not understand the value of systematic education and training at first. However, we managed to convince him over time that he needed proper training. We motivated and sponsored him to obtain a degree by extension at a prestigious university. Without a doubt, Misha was the heart and soul of our team making its life very special.

Misha has emigrated to Israel. We were very sorry to see him go after all our efforts to provide him with proper training and education so that his talents could be used more effectively to promote the Kingdom. Eventually, after several random jobs, he came into contact with the Haifa Theological Institute. It is a school run by the Return to Zion ministry that serves the former Soviet Union repatriates in the country. (Russia and Ukraine come third and fourth among countries with a Jewish population in the world respectively, after the US and Israel. Unofficially, Russian is the third language of the country after Jewish and Arabic.) Misha is developing a media ministry there now, producing online Messianic programmes both in Russian and Hebrew. Nothing goes to waste in the Lord’s economy! Praised be His name! Please pray with us for the development of this new partnership for the sake of the Kingdom!
