зображення_viber_2019-08-26_13-33-43.jpg

Dear brothers and sisters, I greet you with the love of Jesus Christ.

I thank our Lord for His and your help and support in working on His Field. The Lord gave me wisdom and health, has been working for the whole month to glorify Christ — Glory to Him! I, along with my family, served in the Christian camp of our mission PIEI Ukraine “Candela” and in our church where I serve.

1. Baptism:

In our church, the village of Nesvoia was baptized in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, where 3 souls were baptized: 2 brothers and 1 sister.

зображення_viber_2019-08-26_13-33-59.jpg

One of the baptized is brother George, who repented of evangelism with Nicky Cruz, at the stadium in Chernivtsi. He used to be the secretary of the party organization, the chairman of the collective farm and was one of the persecutors of the Church of Christ. He himself said in our church even before his repentance: - I don’t know how the Lord will forgive me for expelling His Church. He went to our meetings for a long time and did not dare to repent. We prayed for this brother for a very long time, along with his wife Nina, who has long been a Christian and sings in our choir. Praise God that He does such miracles today, saves sinners from eternal death, and the Church of Christ grows.

Another young guy is my nephew Roger, the son of my own sister.

And the young girl Adeline, who repented at our camp last year. Thank God. We pray for these baptized people that God will strengthen their faith and bless them in the way of Christ.

At this holiday, our church, guests were invited, relatives of the baptized who are still unbelievers. They heard the Word of God and we saw tears in many of them. We pray for these people that the Word of God touches their hearts. At the end of this evangelization, our church, organized a love table where everyone praised God for what the Lord sends us: for our daily bread, and for all the products than the Lord blessed us with.

2. Evangelism:

I participated in the baptism in the church of the village of Rokitne. There I preached and participated in the ordination of 4 baptized. Also rejoiced that 2 of these young baptized people repented last year in our camp. We pray for Edgar. His parents are not happy that he received the baptism and are following him.

In this regard, that I am responsible for the churches of the Novoseletsky district (there are 18 of them) and the Hertsaevsky district was added, then I visited 5 churches this month: Zhilovka, Dinivtsi, Rokitne, Gertsa and constantly serve in my church, in Nesvoi. In our church, this month, another young girl repented, Thank God!

3.Thanks:

Thank you for your prayers and for your help that helped us in our ministry. Thank you for praying for the Christian camp of our mission PIEI Ukraine, we really felt the power of your prayers and the Lord blessed our camp wonderfully with the repentance of young people. For this it stands praying and working — Thank God for everything! Thank you for praying for all our missionaries who work in the ministry in our area.

4. Prayer requests:

- Pray for the awakening of Christian youth in our Chernivtsi region. Sometimes it seems that they have forgotten what they are called to. And we are all called to evangelize people and bring them to Christ.

- For evangelism in boarding schools for orphans in the Chernivtsi region.

- For my family, that God will give us strength and health, with wisdom and joy to carry this ministry for Christ.

Love you and pray for you.

Sincerely, Pavel and Larisa Petihachny.

Testimonies of the children who repented in the camp

IMG_7805.jpg

Greetings, through the love of Jesus Christ, dear brothers and sisters!

We are grateful to God and to you for the Candela Christian camp in Boyan, where 45 of the 105 children and adolescents that were in our camp repented and accepted the Lord in their hearts. 50% of these children were from unbelieving families.

Thank God, the camp was carried out in the power of the Holy Spirit, where the Word of God was in the first place. And this Word touched children's hearts. Thank God, the Lord blessed us in this camp and we felt this blessing every day, every minute and every second our stay there.

As we wrote to you earlier, there were 135 people in the camp, 105 children and adolescents, 4 teachers for four groups of children and 26 leaders. We thank you brothers and sisters from the USA that you helped us organize this camp with your money and your prayers.

Now we will write you some testimonies of the children who repented in this camp. We pray for them and ask that you also pray for these children:

1.Vakarash Anna, 15 years old, the village of Forosna

"I am very grateful to God for being able to visit such a beautiful camp. It was very cool to play, to swim in the pool, and the word of God. I have never been to a Christian camp. This is my first time. My parents are unbelievers. And I repented. in this camp. Pray for my mother to let her go to the gospel church. Thank you all for inviting me to this camp.

2.Vakarash Igor, 17 years old, Forosna.

“I am Anna’s brother and am very grateful to God and you for the invitation to the Candela Christian camp. After all, in this camp I found out that Jesus is the Son of God, and He is God and the Word who was embodied in the flesh to take upon himself all the sins of the world and to save all people from death, I was among them. At the beginning of the camp, I was angry that I needed to study the Word of God, and didn’t even want to write anything. But the leader Alla told me: -you just listen and we will pray for you to understand the Word .I studied the Gospel of John with my brother Paul Petihachny. And really God gradually revealed to me. Jesus Christ, as the Word, was embodied in the body through the Virgin Mary, as the Creator of the entire universe, as God, as the Savior of the world. On the third day of the camp, I began to fill out my textbook and even asked my friends to help me fill out the textbook for the previous 2 days . I learned verses that indicate the deity of Christ. From John 20: 28-And Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!” I also learned verses from John 20: 30-31-Jesus created many things before His disciples and other miracles which are not written in this book. 31. It is also written that you believe that Jesus with the Christ, the Son of God and believing you may have life in His name.

This verse points to the purpose of writing St. John. Thank God that I accepted Christ in this camp. Of course my parents are against this step, but I will pray for them. The Lord will help us get through this. Pray for my family so that we all were happy with the Lord.

3.Dyntu Stefani, 12 years old, the village of Forosna.

-I am very glad that I was at the Candela camp this year. I have a very good program and I really enjoyed studying the Word. The contests and games were just class. But I am more glad that I accepted Christ as a personal Savior in my heart. This I immediately told the joy to my mother and she, too, rejoices with me, Thank God. Thank you to everyone who organized this beautiful camp.

 4.Frunza Ekaterina, 14 years old, Dinivtsi.

"I thank everyone who organized this camp. I first came to the Christian camp. The impression ... well, very, very cool! I liked reading and meditating on the Word of God. After all, at home my parents are unbelievers, and they don’t understand what it means to belong to Christ ! When Jesus is your Savior and friend. I am just happy to have accepted Christ in my heart. Pray for my mother to be understanding with me and allow me to attend the house of worship and Christian youth meetings. And that the Lord will strengthen me in faith.

We also pray for our parents to repent. Thank you for such a great camp.

7. Gorobchik David, 14 years old, the village of Kotilevo.

-I also received an invitation to this Christian camp in Boyan, as well as my cousins from Nooselitsy. We all were studying the Word of God from the Gospel of Ivan.

I am grateful to God that I could still glorify Christ among unbelievers this month. I thank all those who pray for us so that we may succeed in the preaching of Christ.

1. Youth Conference:

The youth of our church from Nesvoi organized a district youth conference. This conference was organized in the forest in nature. At this conference there were about 50 young people who glorified the Lord through hymns and various spiritual quizzes.

I spent with them a lesson on the topic: - “Spend time because the days are evil”. Through this lecture, I inspired young people to find time for God, not just for their flesh. I pray that the Lord will touch their soul, that the youth will always find time to glorify Christ, because these are their blessings here on earth and in eternity when we are at the Savior's feet.

Missionary conference in Romania

IMG_3348.JPG

I praise God, and thank Him for giving us success, in being preached to the unbelievers.

We are grateful to all those who pray for us and are grateful to the missionaries of the PIE Romania mission, who organized an excellent conference in the city of Alba Iulia (this city is located in the middle of Romania) for Missionaries of churches from Ukraine and Romania.

1.       Communication.

The missionaries of the PIEI Ukraine mission, together with their families, were at this missionary conference, and exchanged experiences on missions, with the missionaries of the PIE mission in Romania. I personally from Romanian missionaries, took for myself, new missionary strategies that I will use in our mission PIEI in Ukraine. Our missionaries of PIEI of Ukraine would like to have such conferences organized annually.

2. Evangelism.

In connection with the holiday of Easter, we organized two great evangelicals, in two churches: in the church of the village of Nesvoya, and in the church of the village of Balkivtsi. For these evangelisms, our young people invited all the inhabitants of these villages to attend our worship service.

At the first evangelism, in the church of the village of Nesvoi, about 40 non-believers were around, who praised Jesus Christ is Risen with us. In the second gospel, in the church of the village of Balkovtsi there were about ten non-believers. Our youth at the end of these two evangelicals, congratulated all visitors, with postcards with the inscription Christ is Risen. We pray for unbelievers who have visited these evangelicals so that the seed that is sown grows in them and leads them to Christ.

3. Gratitude.

I am grateful to all those who help me prayerfully and financially. Because thanks to this help, we can organize, evangelism, even in those villages where there are no evangelical churches. May God bless you.

4. Prayer needs.

   - Pray for us, so that we can help young families, establish themselves in God.

   - Pray for peace in Ukraine, where else in the east of Ukraine in the cities of Donetsk and Lugansk, there is a war. Let His peace come.

 - May 26, there will be a large-scale evangelism. At the Bukovina stadium, the city of Chernivtsi, with the famous evangelist Nick Cruz, pray for the non-believers who will be present there.

Please accept my sincere greetings from our family, we love you and we pray for you.

Yours faithfully, the missionary of the PIEI Ukraine mission, Pavel Petikhachny.

Pastor Conference

viber image 2019-04-25 , 10.02.51.jpg

I am grateful to God that all the circumstances in my life were for success, for preaching the word of God.

I want to thank everyone who prays for my ministry, which I perform with my family.

This month, on April 13, I organized the Pastor Conference, with pastors of the churches of Novoselitsky District. I held this conference in the Church of Emanuel, in which the pastor is Popov Valery. I taught them lectures on the subject: The Sermon on the Mount, with the goal that all Pastors would be role models in their churches, so that they would have the righteousness of Christ, and not the scribes and Pharisees.

And this month, I distributed seeds in 18 churches, for the poor, to plant their fields.

In the future, with God's help, I want to spend two large-scale evangelizations, in connection with the Easter holiday.

Brothers and sisters, I want to greet you with the feast of the Resurrection of Christ, with the words: Christ is Risen, Christ is truly Risen.

Thank you for your prayers and for the material support that helps me in serving here in Ukraine. Be blessed.

Yours faithfully, Missionary PIE Ukraine, Pavel Petihachny.
