In 2018

Every time I send out our newsletter, I feel a little uncomfortable since it may look like I am doing all these things alone. In fact, I am just a messenger, a deliverer of the final product. All these activities are the result of the team effort. Our team is scattered all over the country (including some staying in the Crimea) - doing research and taking notes, developing content, creating media, facilitating web resources, managing facilities, etc. They are the product of the partnership network with various ministries who share their infrastructure with us in mainland Ukraine. They are the fruit of your faithful care, constant prayers and sacrificial support. They are the joyful evidence of Lord’s work through all of us. Praised be His name!

Foreign missionaties training
National missionaties training

Though the spring was long in coming to our part of the world, it has been a hot season, nonetheless, because it brought plenty of opportunities to serve. The key focus of the month was the training of missionaries. On the one hand, we continue to equip foreign missionaries in Ukraine at the Worldview School providing the training courses on Science and the Bible (see the picture attached). On the other hand, we contributed to the presentations on the biblical strategy for missions at the National Missionary Conference (see the picture attached). It is a great joy to see the work of the Lord growth in the face of the troubles in the world! May the Lord be praised! Please pray to the Lord of the harvest for these labourers of His and also pray that He sends forth more labourers into his harvest!

The greatest joy of the month was the commencement of the first national Doctor of Ministry program in the former Soviet Union (see the pictures attached)! These workers of the Lord from Armenia, Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, USA and Ukraine are the firstfruits of the genuine national church development deeply grounded in the Word of the Lord. Please join our praises and prayers for every one of them!

We had a great time with the cohort of the “Vision University” Master program at the city of Zhitomir as we provided the training course on Apologetics the Evangelism Biblical Strategy (see the pictures attached). This is our first visit to that campus and I believe it is the beginning of a fruitful partnership. May the Lord be praised!

The humanitarian missions that work with the displaced persons are highly grateful for the evangelism/apologetics book “The ABCs of Christian Faith” we are supplying them with. They place the book into food and medical kits, take them to the missions to the suffering people and use them to train volunteers (see the pictures attached). Please pray with us for the people who have lost their homes and possessions because of the war – may they find comfort and joy in belonging to the everlasting household of the Lord!

On the other hand, we are trying to do our best in impacting the worldview of the future generations through equipping Christian teachers who are working within post-communist government system of education. That is why with great joy we have responded on the Ostroh Academy National University to provide books for using them as the awards at the Teacher of the Year national contest (see the pictures attached). This way we equip the best schoolteachers who will definitely use the books they got. May the Lord be praised! Please pray with us for the greater ripple effect these resources produce!
 
Ministry vehicle

Equipping the frontline ministries with the printed and media resources is among our priorities. I can’t help sharing two stories that happened this month in that area. The first one occurred when I stopped by at theUkrainian Evangelical Seminary as it was hosting a conference of a well-known international mission. As soon as I entered the campus, a young girl I had never met just ran up to me and fell on my neck exclaiming, ‘I’ve been waiting for this moment for ten years!’ You could imagine how much surprised I was! Soon I learnt that she is a missionary in an extremely restricted country who had translated my book on Noah's Flood into Farsi a while ago (I would love to provide a picture and name, but should not). She was excited to share how much our resources had impacted her view of the Scripture, evangelism and missions. She asked for the permission to translate our other resources into Asian languages, and I certainly granted it without hesitation! Praised be the Lord for the technology - she does not have to risk taking any books or disks to the restricted areas across the borders and checkpoints. We have uploaded everything she needs to the cloud storage, so she will have it available online all the time. Please join our prayers for this young warrior who is fragile and yet mighty in the spirit of the Lord!

Student with the book
Another story comes from Western Ukraine, from the city of Lviv. There a Regional Chapter of CCX (Evangelical Students Union) has kept running a discussion club at the Intellectual Cafe. After a recent meeting, they offered our books to those who would like to know more about the Bible, Christianity and Jesus Himself. One girl was pretty hesitant and skeptical during the discussion. She picked up a copy of the ‘Dinner with Skeptics’ in Ukrainian just to take a look at. In the end, she remained at the cafe for over an hour after everything had finished, because she could not stop reading the book (see the picture attached)! Praised be the Lord! May He use the tools we develop for His work to bring the abundant harvest!
