Children camp in the "Emmanuel" Church


I greet you with the Grace and Love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for praying and supporting us.

With God's help, our church"Emmanuel" was able to spend a six-day camp for children and adolescents. The theme of the camp was "What is good and what is bad" based on the 10 commandments. There were 66 children in total. There was a good team of 13 young leaders. Every day I drove children from different places to the camp. I brought all that was needed for the kitchen products. Alla coordinated this camp. It was a very blessed time.

On the seventh day, on Sunday, we made a final meeting for parents and children. The children sang and recited Bible verses which they had been learned for six days for parents. We also interviewed the children about what they liked in the camp or what they took for themselves. The children answered very interestingly and in different ways. One of the boys who was in the teenage group said: "that there is no need to sin and you need to trust Jesus and hallow Sunday."

There were three groups: one for kids from 4 years to 7 years. The second for children from 8 years to 10 years. Third from 11 to 16 years. They had been taught lectures at their level.

When they made a program for their parents, I had a thankful and encouraging word for them. Parents of unbelievers were 12 people. And this is a blessing to us. When Alla explained to the parents the commandments that the children taught, they very much listened with great attention.

Thank God that we were able to spend this camp with His help. There were a lot of problems before the camp, but He helped solve everything.

Also, we were visited by Brother Sasha Pastushak to make beautiful photos of our camp. Thank God and for him.

Thank you for helping us financially and morally. Blessings to you and may God always be with you.

Yours faithfully, the missionary Valera Popov.

Regional conference with sisters


I welcome you dear brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus. May God's love and mercy be always in your hearts, words and thoughts.

Thank you for always remembering and praying for us. Thank God for putting this desire in you to serve and help others. Gratitude to you and we Praise God that He takes care of us through you.

Last Sunday, I invited a group of young Chernivtsi to us in the Church, so that they could serve the Church and God. Our Naomi and Ruth worship God with the songs in a place with this group of young. They also had a sermon. I am very glad that the Church was edified, and the young ones served.

On June 6, my family and I were invited to the wedding of my nephew. He is my brother's son. My brother and nephew, they are unbelievers. And they made a wedding for the faithful relatives separately a couple of days later. We were there talking to them. Then I had a word for them. And he said that life without Christ does not make sense. We wished them to have Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord. My brother and his family listened very attentively and accepted the wishes.

Also on June 8, sister Larisa and Brother Pavel held a sister regional conference in our Church. There were about 30 sisters. My wife and sister Larisa prepared dinner for everyone. It was a very blessed time.

Pray for our Church to grow spiritually and quantitatively. Pray for my loved ones who heard the word of God, so that they would know God as Savior and Lord. Also pray for the preparation for the Camp in the Boyans. And for the camp, which will be with us in the Church from July 1 to July 7. So that many children would come and their parents would not let go.

With respect and gratitude to you

Missioner Valera Popov.

Greetings to all with the love of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your support, prayer, and help. Thank God that you can serve God and help others.

In our family, by the grace of God, all is well. Noemi is finishing the third course of the English language. Ruth finishes second-course medicine. Little man grows for the glory of God. Noemi and Ruth are always in the Church and in other youth meetings. They praise God by singing.

Last Sunday, we, I, and my wife gathered young people who wanted to be the leaders and help to prepare for the "Candela" camp in Boyan. There were also brother Paul and sister Larisa. Brother Pavel asked Alla to help and lead the Camp.

We discussed how best to make this camp, who will be responsible for what. Who will have what responsibilities. There would be 22 leaders in total, and at the first meeting, there were 16 people. There will be five more such meetings.

Pray for God to bless this team with the wisdom and love of Jesus Christ. And help in the preparation. Also, pray for our church to be more zealous for the ministry and grow spiritually.

Jesus for children's hearts

viber image 2019-04-26 , 16.30.18.jpg

Greetings to everybody who loves Jesus and who concerns of our ministry!

For five meetings, the children were taught how to build their lives on the teachings of Jesus Christ. They took the construction of a house for comparison. The active teaching was taken in this children's ministry: Ruth sang songs with the children, played games, and taught Bible verses. Valera served as a transport to these children, because many children live far away. Valera and teachers also communicate with the parents of these children who do not believe.

In total, 16 children came, 7 of them from unbelieving families. After they had completed the five lessons, we invited them to the service on the Resurrection, and with their teachers, they sang songs and wrote Bible verses to the glory of the Lord. Praise the Lord for them!

Pray for the children's ministry in Novoselitsa.

We are thankful Him for everything He gave us and everyone who prays for us and support this ministry.

Best wishes,

Pastor and missioner Popov Valery and Alla

Greetings to everybody who loves Jesus and who concerns of our ministry!

By God`s Grace, we had a great opportunity to serve our teenagers of the Novoselitsa. The team of youth had came to us from Chernivtsi and we had a wonderful meeting together. We conducted a special program and topic as “Good news” that God had gave us His only begotten Son Who died for our sins.

There were about twelve of teenagers including five from unbelieving families. They had a lot of questions of faith and God. By the end of this event, they got many impressions, answers and heard the Good News! What we are very happy about!

Noemin and Ruth sang in a worship group and encouraged everyone to proclaim the Name of Jesus.

God abundantly blessed this meeting by His riches and glory.

We are thankful Him for everything He gave us and everyone who prays for us and support this ministry.

Best wishes,

Pastor and missioner Popov Valery and Alla

Solid Foundations

I am glad to serve the Lord and His church in different ways.

I encourage the spiritual growth of the local church I serve by preaching the Gospel and teaching its members the Values of the Christ. 

We give a great priority to the youth and children’s ministry. We started a new cycle of Bible lessons with them about how to build a resistant house on a right foundation. The teens had a special meeting at which they could invite their unsaved friends. There were around 15-20 teens at the meeting. They learned new things in Scripture that help them understand the Christian values that were taken from the Bible - the wise ones worthy to be followed in real life. 

Teen Ministry

 I was with a team of teenagers who do not know the Lord at a football competition organized by regional Christian youth. There the boys could show how Christians respect each other even in sports.

We pray for all these teenagers that the Lord will search their hearts and that Jesus Christ will become their Lord and Savior. Join with us in prayer for this ministry.

The youth of the church are also involved in praise and worship in the church services and other places at regional or district level, at various Christian meetings.

We continue to distribute the Christian tracts among those who do not know the Lord.

Thank you for being with us in the work that we do in Ukraine for the Church of God to be built and the enlargement of the Kingdom of God.

I wish you much grace and great heart for the work of the Lord.

Be Blessed.

Evangelization through the sport

Thanks to the Lord for such a great opportunity to serve people and make them followers of Jesus Christ.

And I am really appreciated to all who support us and make this ministry a reality.

We had the ministry for the teenagers. That is the evangelization through the activity and sport. We gathered the football team and took part in the championship of our Novoselitsa region. The great blessing for us is the next that our team consists of 5 unbelievers guys and only 1 guy is from believing family. Me as their head man and this one guy, we showed them how good is to know God, how it is possible to live without bad habits and bad words. We noticed that our instance has a good influence on their lives. We show that we are not boring religion and we can spend time with fun.

On this competition we came with a great support group on football. There were many girls and boys from our church and our city that encourage our team to win the game.

We plan to continue to work with these guys to have some meetings and talk about life and their needs, to help them see God and His love for them. So, please, pray for these meetings and these guys. We want them to know Jesus Christ with their hearts and let He fill them.

Opportunities during the Holidays

By God’s grace we started this year by being involved in different ministries. 

Winter holidays have given us more opportunities to serve the Lord through special meetings with children dedicated to the Nativity of Jesus as well as various forms of massive evangelism in the center of the city, where hundreds of people had the possibility to hear the Good News about Jesus’ Birth. We also went caroling at people’s houses and shared Christian brochures. We didn’t forget about the leaders of our town and caroled for them too. We evangelized to people in the streets and the town square and were involved in different ministries with teens and children. We organized a meeting with the teens to which 16 teens came and studied the book of Jonah. 

Reaching the Unsaved

We are highly involved in the delivery of the parcels with Christian brochures and calendars to the unsaved people of our town.

We thank God for you, we pray that His grace will be given to you abundantly in your life, your families, and the churches you serve.

Be blessed for everything you do for the church of Christ in Ukraine.

Sincerely, Valery Popov.

Appreciation for Sunday School

Thank God for His Kindness that was with us last year! 

In December I could serve God through our church and different services.


Every Sunday there were different lessons for children at Sunday School on  various topics. Thank God there were around 40 kids and enough teachers for doing this work. My wife is a coordinator of these meetings. All praise and thanks are given to the Lord.

Winter holidays gave us big opportunities to serve other people. Our church was involved in evangelism in our town. So many people could hear about Christ and His fascinating Birth in this world. Also these days we and our youth from other churches sang carols in the center of Noua Sulita, visiting state institutions. We shared hundreds of christian books and calendars. People received them with open hearts. We pray for them, so they can call on God in their lives and for Jesus Christ to save them from their sins and future judgment.

Thank you for being with us in our work that we are doing for the glory of God.  Thanks for your prayers and financial support! God bless you in 2019!  May God give you a reward for everything that you are doing!

With great Respect and Love,

Family Popov

Youth and Soccer

Greetings to everybody who loves Jesus!

This month we had the grace to continue the ministry of the church and our neighbors. 

On November 17, we organized a youth conference for the youths in the Novoselitsa district. 

The topic of the conference was "Music in Worship". Our young people were involved in organizing and leading this meeting. The purpose of the meeting was for young people to understand the importance of music in worshiping the Lord.

Another event in November was the participation of the youths and teens at a soccer competition organized by Christians. The purpose of the soccer competition was the ministry among the unsaved youths and getting to know them better. In our team we had five unsaved young boys with whom we became friends and keep in touch. There they heard a Christian message and the boys were impressed by the warm reception offered by Christians. We pray for them and ask that you please pray for them too.

We were glad to witness the baptism of two young men in our church who made a covenant with God through the water of Baptism. Their names are Maxim and Nikolai. They accepted the Lord at the PIEI youth camp last summer. They received baptism at the Baptist church in Chernauts, where brother Grigory Postusak is pastor. Please pray for these youths to grow in their faith. The children and teens get together at church every Saturday. The children of the refugees from the war zone in Ukraine come to these meetings. We also have children from poorer families. They are glad to be in a warm atmosphere and warm rooms among Christians. Please pray for this ministry as the seed sown in the children’s hearts can bring fruits of repentance and acceptance of the Lord Jesus. 

Thank you for your support. Be blessed. 

Best regards, Valery Popov
