The first summer month passed and with it the ministry of day camps for children organized by some sisters of our church in other churches and villages.
The biggest ministry of May was the evangelism with the participation of a doctor team from Kiev. We had a great opportunity to organize a great outreach at church where a lot of unsaved people came to hear the Gospel. Especially we praise the Lord for the people who came for the first time to church.
In April we celebrated the Annunciation, Palm Sunday and Easter. On these occasions we had special services at church and unsaved guests who had the opportunity to hear the Gospel.
I praise and glorify our Lord for His every day care and guidance. This month I attended a conference organized for pastors and deacons in Chernautsi. There were experienced brothers from Kiev at the conference who gave us useful advice how to work efficiently in the ministry.
February was a blessed month in which we worked for God’s kingdom. Our youth visited the church in Rakitna. They had a beautiful program there with songs, poetry and sermons. This year we celebrate the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s Great Reformation.
We are blessed to have our services translated online since the beginning of January. We were glad that on the very first time 200 people accessed our web cam and listened to the service.
In December I had a greater opportunity to visit the sick and other members of our church. I like to encourage the others because by encouraging the others, I am strengthening myself.
I praise God for showing us again His mercy and greatness in the ministry we did in November. This month God answered our prayer that we prayed for several years. A man who has attended our church for several years accepted the Lord in his heart after a sermon about the prodigal son. This case is an encouragement for the whole church that teaches us to keep praying and not fail or get discouraged in our faith.
This month our church raised money for a boy of 6 years old who needed brain surgery. Also we collected food, fruit, vegetables and clothes for the orphanage of the disabled children in Mahala.
