November 2016

By God’s grace every Sunday we have been doing discipleship lessons for the last two months. We are planning to have a baptism at the beginning of December. We pray for the candidates tfor baptism to get wisdom from God to understand His Word. Many of them come from unsaved families and know nothing about the Bible. We pray for that day and for people who will come to this celebration and will hear the Word of God.

In November I met the young families from our church at a coffee and had fellowship studying the Bible about the love Agape. We learned how can we get this love and apply it in our lives. Also some families confessed how God has worked in their family life. At the end of our meeting many young families prayed God to give them the love Agape as Jesus had; a love that is ready to sacrifice and doesn’t seek its priorities but loves to death. 

Also I had similar meetings with 400 young people at “Coffee House” that is by our church and with the children who attend Sunday school. We pray for both youth and children because they are the future of our church. We have children who attend Sunday school but whose parents are not believers. We pray that their parents will be saved too through their children. 

We had a pastoral conference where I talked to other pastors in Chernovtsy region about the evangelism project for the next year. Next year is a great jubilee for all Protestants - 500 years since Reformation. We plan a project in which we would like to involve all Protestant churches with different denominations. I and several other pastors went to the city administration and talked with the regional deputies and the Governor about our project. At the end of our meeting at the city administration we all prayed for the future project and for peace in Ukraine. We pray for this project and ask God’s blessing on the evangelisms planned for the next year that more and more people will find Jesus as their Savior. 

Please, continue to pray for Ukraine, for peace and wisdom to our leaders. We pray for you too. May the Lord bless you for your support! My family is sending you greetings.

Best wishes, Postusak Grigory
