School starts tomorrow in Ukraine. We had a great summer of ministry with teens and college age students, as well as the church family. We spent the summer studying the beatitudes of Jesus from the Sermon on the Mount.
We are excited about our college age ministry and the possibilities of encouraging more students to live as disciples of Jesus. We have been hosting activities on Friday nights throughout the summer that were well attended. Tomorrow we will put up posters at all the Institutes in the city inviting students to attend each Friday evening. We are hoping that some of the kids who moved this week from Hope Orphanage to the technical schools they will be attending will decide to participate each week.
We recently purchased rugs, curtain rods and material for curtains to remodel ten rooms at Hope Orphanage. Hopefully the rooms will be completed soon and we can get some pictures to post. Thanks to all of you who sponsor our ministry in any way, your generosity is changing lives in Gorlovka.
The photos are from the last Friday Fun Day for the youth group. They completed the last beatitude lesson and then went bowling.
