Enjoy their Fall Newsletter as they walk by faith with a renewed church-plant in Kyiv, Ukraine! - p. Christian
Greetings from Kyiv!
Planting a local church in Kyiv is an amazing process that we all (me, my wife Albina and our son Samuel) are experiencing. As a family we moved here in July this year. Since then God is working very deeply in our hearts. He is teaching us to trust Him in everything. Primarily He is teaching us to trust Him for building the church. It’s His will and His great desire to see how His children are growing in the unity of the spirit and in praise.
Our church isn’t big. There are about 10 people. Twice a week we meet at our home for the church services. On Mondays we have soulwinning and Bible lesson with discussion at the Pedagogical University. On Saturdays we share the Gospel of Christ with people in the center of the city.
Recently Vitaliy Melnikov came back to church, he use to be a part of our church 15 years ago. He shared great testimony of his life and how God very clearly told him to go back to the church and when he asked which one, God answered: you’ve got Greater Grace church.
Two weeks ago one man sent me sms: “Pastor, I got confused in life, please, help”. When we met we had long conversation about Christ and Sergiy trusted his heart to Him. Sergiy lived and had his business in Warsaw, Poland. He believed he can do everything and fortune is following him. He helped other people and taught them how to live this life. One day his wife left him. Life started cracking. Drugs. Deportation from Poland. He decided to start everything from the beginning in Ukraine. He found some job in Kyiv, substituted drugs with alcohol, found some woman, but he wasn’t happy at all. He was thinking about suicide and remembered that someone gave him telephone number of some pastor. Praise God for His Faithfulness in the lives of broken people. Now Sergiy has new life, new family, new friends, new job. Please, continue to pray for him.
Every soul is priceless to God. He will never despise a person. Church is a great provision from God for people. The place where we all are hidden, fed and warmed. The place we grow in the knowledge of the Father.
Thank you for your prayers and support!
