A Christmas play and sweet gifts for Dovbysh nursing home
Those who read us know that one of the directions we work in is helping nursing homes. One of them is situated in Dovbysh and very often we go there to visit elderly people bringing them medication, food supplies, cloth, etc… One of the most important things for the residents of nursing homes except for the ones mentioned above is care and attention. They are always happy to see visitors as nothing really much happens in their regular (monotonous) life-style.
A play, sweet gifts and football sportswear for school learners of Kurne
Winter is a wonderful season especially loved by children mostly because of winter holidays, snow, New Year and Christmas. Our charitable foundation “Hope for everyone” together with the young learners from our Sunday school decided to congratulate the children of Kurne by performing a play about our Savior Jesus Christ and, of course, by giving out sweet gifts. It’s worth saying that there is a habit in a local schoo
Medication for Dovbysh and Novograd-Volynsk orphanages
Last week our charitable foundation in cooperation with One Heart Church obtained so needed medication for the children of Dovbysh and Novograd-Volynsk orphanages. This decision was made by pastor Gearl after visiting several orphanages and finding out how poorly they had been supported by the government. There was a need almost in everything.
Marina became a new resident of our maternity home several weeks ago. Now we’ve got 3 ladies in crisis with their kids living in our rehab center.
Marina is 36. She is a mother of 5 kids but is taking care of only one of her children (son Bohdan) at the moment. Being alcohol dependant, living indecent life and having 4 kids she was deprived of parental rights. All her 4 children were taken to orphanage while she found herself in the street with no place to live in, penniless and pregnant with her 5-th child. Being alcohol dependent she was taken to one of the rehabilitation centers for ladies in Ostroh, Western Ukraine. There she realized she didn't want to be parted with her future child and firmly decided to personally bring him up. Since the above mentioned rehab centre was aimed to give shelter to only single ladies without kids they addressed our charitable foundation Hope for everyone with the help request.
Friends from Hot Springs, Arkansas
In our previous piece of news we wrote about the group of ladies who came to Ukraine to share God's love and bring the Gospel to people of Kurne village.
Just the next day the ladies left back to the USA after a great work they all did here we were glad to welcome a second group, this time consisting merely of men, in our village. There are many different ways how we can serve God and people around us. These Godly men came to Ukraine to apply their construction skills in practice and help us build a guest house, chop wood for heating our Maternity House in winter, pile this wood, paint the fence and do some other things connected with fixing.
Ladies. Reaching out the villagers.
September is here which means we are glad to welcome our good friends from Hot Springs in Kurne village. God has opened their hearts (8 ladies)to leave their families, churches, habitual way of life and to come to Ukraine far away from the comfort zone they would live in to share God's love and His Word with the people of Ukraine.
