Lviv Seminars

The summer on wheels continues! We made another trip to the Western part of the country to teach “Science and the Bible” Course at Lviv Regional Chapter of the Vision University (see the picture attached). In addition to the class seminars, all students were equipped with the printed and media resources and were given a practical assignment to complete a project (a sermon, ABF class or group seminar) on any course item that they see as most relevant to their ministry. Please pray for the ripple effect it can produce.

Next, there was a national conference for Christian Schoolteachers at the city of Bucha. We offered the seminars on the Biblical Foundations of Science to demolish the strongholds of the widespread communist propaganda myths that science and Christian faith are incompatible (see the pictures attached). The teachers were excited to discover that science relates to faith more like the prodigal son from the parable to his father. Science was born out of Christian theology, but later it took its share of property (i.e. the ability to answer the “How?” questions, but not the “Why?” questions) and took its journey into the far country of atheism. However, now it is coming to its senses and heading back to where it belongs.
 
Another seminar was focused on the importance of the Science classes in shaping the foundations of faith, since it provides the answer to the main worldview question “Where did I come from?” which impacts the answers to the questions “Who am I?”, “Why I am here?” and “Where should I go?” We have distributed a full trunkload of books during the conference and are so glad all our media resources are downloadable, which means they don’t add to the weight we have to carry around! Please join our prayers for these God’s workers who are building the future of our nation, society and the church!

Right after the conference we had to rush back to Kiev for the most exciting event – a baptism of three young people entering eternal life through the covenant in Jesus (see the pictures attached). I can only say one thing about it: praised be the Lord!

 
On the following Sunday, we headed for the seminar on the Christian Education at two venues in one day: in Makariv in the morning, and in Kiev center in the afternoon (both churches are involved in the ministry dealing with the rehabilitation and reintegration of the drug addicts). But we had to change the topic at the last moment, because we had found out
Marriage Covenant Kiev

there would be a wedding of ex-addicts Igor and Lesya who had committed their lives to Christ. Of course, education is important, but who would like a seminar on education on their wedding day? We promised to do it some other time and instead offered the seminars on the Marriage Covenant as a reflection of God’s relationship with His church (see the pictures attached). Please pray with us for Igor and Lesya – for the new life they have in Jesus and in their marriage!

Finally we took a ride to the town of Ostroh to teach at the Academic Integrity Summer School. The school is run by the Ostroh Academy National University – the oldest university in Eastern Europe (1576), the very place where the first complete Slavonic Bible was printed (1581). Ostroh Acaddemy is a unique case of a modern secular university that proclaims the Biblical values strongly and openly and spreads Christian ethics. It is a great joy for us to be a partner of the school for many years in training and equipping the public schools teachers for shaping the next generations worldview rooted in the Scripture! The seminars we taught this time were focused on the role of Biblical teaching of creation in developing personal ethics and professional integrity of the schoolteacher (see the pictures attached). Please pray for these workers in the most challenging and strategically important field.

At the same time, our team in Crimea started to field-test the new children apologetics curriculum for Christian camps, Sunday schools and playgrounds (see the pictures attached). Given the restrictions, much work must be done under the radar. We are limited to the day-camp format and cannot use the camping format anymore (or else we could be accused of abductions). Nevertheless, the work of the Kingdom continues and many churches in the countries of the former Soviet Union are happy to use the children’s curricula we produce. Please pray for our workers’ courage and safety!
