n April I had a favorable time to share the Gospel to the unsaved people. At the beginning of the month I taught Homiletics at the Seminary in Chernauts, where I taught the students how to prepare a lesson or a sermon.
At the beginning of the March all the sisters of the Evangelical churches in our province joined the International Day of Prayer and Fasting for the Lord’s ministry in the world. We also studied the Word of God on that day.
I praise the Lord for helping me to teach the book of Daniel to the youth from Novoselitsa district at a youth meeting that was in Marshentsa church this month. There were 65 young people at the youth meeting, eager to study the Word of God.
In January God helped us to minister the orphans. We organized for 270 orphans from Chernovtsy a meeting that we named “Christmas for Orphans”.
We held an outreach in a village called Starchea that is 35 km. away from Chernovtsy. At the beginning of the service there were a few listeners, because it was snowing hard and it was cold. But after 20 minutes the room was full and around 100 people gathered to listen to the Gospel.
In November we held an outreach at an orphanage that is in Hotyn, a town in Chernovtsy region. There are 350 children there. Each of them was given sweets, juice, and fruit. Besides, we gave them warm socks and winter clothes. We provided them with food such as rice, beans, pasta, potatoes, vegetable oil, canned meat and cabbage and so on.
My name is Pavel Petihacinai. I grew up in a non-Christian communist family during the Soviet Union occupation of Ukraine. However, when I went to high school there were students, classmates who were believers, and they had good influence over me. Shortly after finishing school I accepted the Lord as my Savior, and went on to medical school.
He was Larisa’s brother. He had an accident with the truck he was driving. We still don’t understand the reason why he has died, but we believe that God wanted to take him Home.
I and my wife visited an old lady of 87 years old whose name is Alexandra and who lives in a nursing home. We’ve known her for a long time, and many times we told her that she needed Jesus, but she always rejected our words...
What a joy to know that I belong to God! Now I have peace and can tell the others about God’s love. Thank you for doing everything to increase the ministry of God in Ukraine. Thank you for this camp.
