“Keep your heart”

“Keep your heart” (Proverbs 4:23) is a church camp of the “Good Shepherd’s Community” in Zalissya.

01 sEvery man has his treasure, something that he loves, appreciates, and cares for. His values determine how he behaves, what decisions he makes, and where he is heading.  02 s As it is written in the gospel of Matthew, "Where your treasure is, there will your heart be" and folk wisdom claims, "Your home is where your heart is." The pastor of the church and the main preacher Taras Prystupa explained a lot about what the human heart is, what it is made from, and how it worships God Approximately 80 people (including children) had a possibility to analyze their hearts, and check their aspirations and desires in life. There were parents that asked their children for forgiveness for teaching them to behave well instead of teaching them how to get a serving heart. There was a family, in which the relationships between spouses improved from day to day before the eyes of all the participants.03 s Initially during the services they were sitting in different corners of the hall, but at the end they “reunited”. They confessed and testified that God seriously affected them there. On the last church service a sister shared that in over 20 years of her being Christian she never realized how sinful she was, but now she does.

 

Two families from Russia were our guests in the camp, a brother and sisters from Zdolbunov were serving in the kitchen. We were very happy to spend these 5 days in companionship and to have a great outdoor recreation.

 

Thank God for His blessings and support. God is good!!!

Christian family camp

 

“Strengthening of the Gospel”, Yevpatoriya, 2012

 

During the last year, the church "The House of Agape" in Dneprodzerzhinsk worked on affirmation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the hearts of brothers and sisters, and regularly attending church youth and teenagers. We understand that the quality of ones Christian life and the strength of one’s testimony depend greatly on the strength of our stand in the Good News. Therefore, the possibility to do the camp and keep influencing the believers with the Gospel is a gift from heaven. This gift enabled Christians to testify to their non-Christian friends and families with their own lives and words.

We didn't have to choose the camp location, as for several years we have been doing the camps for teens on the Black Sea in Yevpatoriya. The camp site is on the beach, 100 m away from the sea and a salty lake.

 

A total of 66 people (mainly families with children) were able to have a great time in the tent camp and to soak in the atmosphere of Christian fellowship, where the Good News about Christ was central.

 

For some families, it was a new experience to be in the tent camp and to have such a long fellowship with the church. People were happy to participate in the morning study of the book of Mark. We concentrated our attention on Jesus Christ as a Servant, Who first of all served with the Word and focused His ministry on the disciples. Also, the camp program had daily morning and evening worship services, during which camp participants and the people around us were able to hear worship songs and the Gospel.

The Ark 2012, Crimea-Sudak

1 s“And now let's talk about sex”, - as soon as a lecturer saw his students sleeping he used this phrase and all the people in attendance woke up as if after drinking a cup of coffee.

 

Six groups of boys and girls in the total number of 50 people learned more about the topic “Embracing God's Design for Sexuality” during the nine day camp. Eighty percent of those youth heard the Gospel and studied Scripture for the first time in their lives. Neither the Black Sea, nor the scorching sun could prevent them from hearing the truth about God and sexual relationships.

Christian Youth Camp "Gospel implementation"

Zalissya, 2012

 

"What are your relationships with your parents?" The minister's son replied, "Formal...," - and then he rose and left, no longer willing to participate in this discussion.

01 s02sNot only the world, but the church as well experiences the crisis of real fatherhood today. A crack in the relationships with loved ones is not the only problem that people face. This summer, the Association of the Biblical and Missionary Churches of Ukraine (ABMCU) ran a spiritual and outreach camp in the camp complex in the forest in Zalissya, Zdolbuniv district, Rivne region. About 120 young people from 4 different countries (Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, and USA) had an opportunity to rest from the city rush and plunge into God's Word.

What teachers believe in?

01 sBerdyansk, Zaporozhye, Rivne region teachers came to the camp "Foundations of Faith", which was organized and held by the education department of IPO "Hope to People" together with a team from the Second Memphis Presbyterian Church from the 9th through 15th of July.

The camp was designed to develop strong relationships with teachers in Ukraine’s schools. Through these relationships, we will continue to spread Christian values in the education system, assist teachers in understanding the Word of God, as well as influence students, parents and their teachers’ colleagues. We can fully support teachers in expanding the subject of "Christian Ethics", help the teachers to prepare their lessons and extracurricular activities with students and their parents, and expand cooperation with the Institute of Postgraduate Education. In camp teachers were able to share their experiences on the subject "Christian ethics".

To teach Christian ethics is school, one has to have a solid foundation of faith. The seminar “Foundations of Faith” teaches Christian doctrines on the topics: the Bible, sin, salvation, the second coming of Christ, angels, demons, Satan, and life after death.
