  I wanted to write and ask for prayer for our upcoming English outreach, "Voice." Our church will be putting it on next week. This is the 4th year in a row that we have done it and we are excited to see what God does this year.  A team from FITP is coming and will also be working with us to put on a kids festival each morning in the Tuberculosis Children's Hospital  Here are a few pictures from previous years.  Thanks for praying!

Christian Bible Church

A couple of months ago we had the privilege of having a group of guys from the Halle Project come out and spend some time with our church.  These guys have an awesome ministry using film to show what God is doing around the world. They are a really talented bunch of guys that want to use their talents to glorify God.  Here's the short film they made for our church while they where with us.
And again, thanks guys for coming out!!!

Kids, Cakes & Ninjas

Every Sunday evening I head over to one of the local orphanages with a group of people from our church to spend time with the kids. We usually do a Bible study, games, and crafts... but last Sunday was my 31st birthday. So, after celebrating with my family, I headed over to the orphanage to have a party with these little guys. It was a good day! Here are a few pic's of the time with them. Please be praying for these children!

The Ninja's are ready!

Marina liked the cake...

Heaven's Here

Today, Randy Alcorn's book, "Heaven" arrived! It's the latest book to be translated and published by In Lumine media. In Lumine is a publishing house that was started by Jake Knotts (my buddy and fellow pastor) to spread Christ-exalting, God-centered, gospel-based resources for the Russian and Ukrainian speaking (reading) world. It's always exciting when a new book comes off the press! It's another book to encourage people towards Christ over here. This book will! It was great seeing the first shipment of three thousand books come today!

I'm "Head of Distribution" at In Lumine.

Olya and Jake have done a lot of work to see this day! Olya is a wonderful gal in our church and has been working with In Lumine from the very beginning. She is also co-founder of There's A Love.

Lunch Time

"Dear Lord,"

"Thank you for this food"


Precious Children

This morning we headed into the tuberculosis hospital to spend some time with the kids. All these little ones have T.B. and some also have Aids. They don't get too many visitors and they get so excited when people from our church come to play and share the gospel with them. A young lady in our church, Oksana Polischuck, found this place and started going in all by herself to share Christ with these kids. They have a lot of needs. With the help of some generous people we have been able to replace 15 windows so their bedrooms stayed a little warmer this winter. There's still much that we want to help them with. There are about 30 kids right now. Here are a few pictures I took.
