Lord is setting leaders in his churches  


01In the beginning of November 2012, the anointment of ministers in the church “New Life” took place in Kilija, Odessa region. Vjacheslav Gutsuluk was anointed as a pastor, and Andrej Dubrovin (pictured to the left) as a deacon. Both of these brothers are the graduates of Rivne Bible College.

Pray about church strengthening for ministry in this area.


0224-25 of November, a celebration took place in the church “Home of Agape”, Dneprodzherzhinsk. The founders of this church were missionaries of Hope to People. One of them, Sergej Timofejev (first from the left), was anointed to be a pastor there. Brother Fedor Tsarevskij (first from the right) was anointed to be a deacon. He and his family are the first members of the church “Home of Agape”. Pray about the theological education of this church’s members.


New church “Svento Drom” (Holy path) was created in Stahanov, Luganks region, and consists mostly from Roma people. On December 9th, Vyacheslav Selivanov was ordained as the pastor of the church. Vyacheslav and Oksana Selivanovi repented 20 years ago. 03They are indigenous Stakhanov citizens. When the first gypsies repented and started attending their church, they became friends with them, and later their regular mentors and teachers.The church prayed about the Roma people’s repentance and now there are about thirty of them. This young church is very passionate about spreading of the Gospel to their people. Therefore, they drive around the Lugansk region, where the Roma people live, and share the Gospel, share personal testimonies, and how they follow God.

Pray about the spiritual growth of this new church.



Ten years of missionary ministry in Armenia 

04On the 24th December, our church celebrated ten years of our missionary ministry, as well as, ten years of our central church "Ararat" in Yerevan. By God’s mercy, Hope to People was a participant of the spread of the Gospel and ministry development there. In 2002, for exploration purposes, Artur Marandjan was sent there and his brother Artak afterwards. They receive financial support, which Suren Arutunjan received later. Theological educationwas also created. During this period of time, churches in Kahtsrashan and Avshor were created. We are satisfied with the fruitful partnership with the church “Ararat” from Yerevan.

Pray about continuation of financial support for ministry in Armenia.


“Heart Restart 2012-2013" 

05The 4th youth conference “Heart Restart 2012-2013" took place in the Bible Missionary Church "Source of Life" in Zdolbuniv, Rivne region with the topic "Born to win.". Including the team, it was attended by 180 people. There were guests from Belarus (Minsk, Stolin), Russia (Moscow) and the different regions of Ukraine (Kiev, Mariupol, Arciz, Colomiya, Ivano-Frankivsk, Sarni, Dneprodzerzhinsk, etc.). Each day was full of spiritual preaching and fellowship.

On New Year's Eve we had a game "What? Where? When ?". On the 1st of January we had a singing and worshiping evening and on January 2nd youth were divided into small groups and shared the Gospel.

Pray about youth of the Association of Bible Missionary Churches of Ukraine, for them to be strong in faith and their dedication to God’s ministry, and for them sharing about Christ to their peers.

On the 20th of January, 2013, the 17th Missionary conference on the topic : “And so you became a model to all…The Lord’s message rang out from…” (1 Thessal. 1:7-8) started in the church “Communion of the Good Shepherd”. The missionaries and ministers from different parts of Ukraine (Dnepropetrovsk, Kiev, Lugansk, and Rivne regions), Russia (Primorskij Krai), and the USA came to the conference. All conference participants received spiritual encouragement.

Pray about the formation of missionary vision among the members of Christ’s Body.


Christian winter camps

The Education Department of the International organization "Hope to People" and the Second Presbyterian Church of Memphis, organized a Christian camp for students and orphanage graduates from Rivne region, involving students from Colomya (01.07.13 - 01/14/13). The camp took place in Iltsi, Ivano-Frankivsk region, for 40 people. The topic of the camp was: “Find your way”. The program included morning and evening worship, study of the book of Psalms, the video-seminar “How to control destructive emotions.” The special blessing was the opportunity to go skiing, snowboarding, sliding, and otherwise enjoying the wonderful nature created by God.

Pray about spiritual birth of children and students, who attended a camp.


From the 5th through 11th of January 2013 the Sport Department of Hope to People had a winter soccer camp on the topic: “God, what do you want from me?” It was in the Carpathians, as per tradition, near the artificial soccer field. The specialty of the camp was that the older members of the soccer team “Hope” were the couches and group leaders for younger boys. Pray about all Oleksandr Gonchar (the chief coach) and that the boys will grow dedicated to God, His Word and His Church Christians. 08The church “Communion of Christ the Savior” from Elista (Kalmikija) organized a children’s day-time camp on the topic “Christ’s style” during Christmas days. Fifteen children based their study of character and lifestyle of Jesus Christ based on the New Testament. Besides that, they played, sang, and did crafts. On the last day of camp, Yevgenij Begletsov talked about repentance and the Gospel.  Children were attentive listeners and many prayed in the end.
