Deb and I will be traveling to Minsk July 2-5. We will be meeting with Bible School leaders and discussing future opportunities. Please pray for us and our ministry partners there as we seek the Lord together for His wisdom and guidance!
On a related note, Nazar from Khargalyk, young man (24yrs old) who traveled with us to Minsk for the worship marathon last month, has decided to go to Bible School this fall. This was on his heart before he went, but during the trip solidified this call and he’s beginning process of applying. Please pray for Nazar and if the Lord puts it on your heart to help him, please contact us or donate on this site – we’re committing by faith to raise for him $1,000, which would be about 50% of his needs for the year. The rest he is saving and working for.
It’s a joy to invest into young future leaders, especially when they are willing to open their hearts and minds for learning God’s word – it seems like just yesterday we were there!! I would love to find some sponsors in Canada and America to help send students to Bible College for a year – the school is actually FREE for the ‘Year for God’ program – they have only to raise about $1800 per semester for cost of living in Minsk – however this is incredibly out of reach for most Ukrainians and their supporting families.
Who would be interested in joining us, sponsoring Nazar $25/mo for 6 months? We’d only need 6 sponsors – I want to send more. I believe God would be greatly pleased if we invested in this next generation in the former Soviet Union in this way.
