Dear brothers and sisters!
The warmest greetings to you in the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Dear brothers and sisters, we are very much grateful to God for you and your prayer and financial support of our ministry. It is a great blessing for us. May our Lord reward you hundredfold and generously provide for your every need! I am happy to tell you about God’s work in our family and congregation.
Thanks to God, in our family we have wonderful relationships with wife and children. It is a great encouragement for me as a minister (photo 1). But I continue to constantly pray, so that in future we won’t lose relationships with one another, because my biggest dream is so that our children will become good Christians.
Our great prayer request is for the young families in our church, because many of them have problems in relationships. Especially it is in those families, where one of the spouses has to go abroad to make money for living.
Therefore, we see a great need in the development of the family ministry. And often we organize the informal family meetings, trips and rest, to inspire them for the ministry to the Lord and to witness with our personal example.
We thank you for your prayers for the teenagers’ ministry in our church. This year we had a very blessed trip with teenagers to the mountains. We had a wonderful time of unity with God and nature. We learned more about each other and had good conversations. In addition, we invited to go with us a father of two boys, Maksim and Misha. On this trip he was encouraged and reconsidered his life. Now he is always in the church with his family (photo 2).
The great joy for us is to see the fruits of our ministry among children and youth. This year two young people, Diana and Yaroslav, have been baptized. They are those, who grew up in our Sunday school (photo 3). Praise God!
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6).
With the beginning of fall, in our church we have started the ministry of the so-called Day Center for children and teenagers from the crisis families. We ask you to pray, so that God will bless this ministry and will help us reaching children and their parents with the Gospel.
We thank God for you and our joint ministry for His glory and for the advance of His Kingdom. May our gracious Heavenly Father shed His abundant blessings upon you!
With love and prayers for you,
