Hello dear brother Richard!

Please accept my best wishes and thanks for your care and love to us. I’m really happy that I have close friend and great brother in Christ. Its winter time now, it’s wet and cold. But it’s really warm and cozy in the house of the Lord.

All the works were completed and we are ready for the winter. We are not leaving spiritual work and we are getting ready for the evangelizing in the city. We’ve rented a big auditorium for 250-300 people for 10 days. Preparing the program: movie, singing and preaching of the Gospel. We are publishing the newspaper and invitations. This Thursday we are going to school to show the puppet show to kids. Keep orphan ministry.

We finished the project as for the moving of the gas pipe from the ground to the surface. We paid 1000grn for that. Started to take the greenhouse apart, we will redo it into children’s playground in the Spring. Can’t really tell that I have excellent health, but I can’t also tell anything bad about it. Everything is OK. We love you and we are praying about you, waiting for the Spring and for the second coming of Christ.

Thank you for support.

With love and respect, Valery and my whole family

Dear brothers, please write some letters to us, at least a small one. My e-mail: gorlovkachurch@mail.ru

Hello dear brothers and sisters!

We praise God for his mercy and grace and love to us that He shows through you. For us last year is one constant miracle. In October of last year we were meeting in the College building and were only hoping for better times to come, and today we are in the wonderful facility, in love and peace.  Thank you a lot for all your kind deeds. Finally we winterized the house from the outside. We have done so many thing just because God definitely was with us. Now plans for the Spring.
There are some things that are necessary to do:
1. Put paving flag in the yard and around the house-100 sq.m.
2. Make a descent front access door
3. Put a new gates at the entrance.
4. Plaster the house from the outside or cover the outer walls with the siding.
Those are works that we won't be able to do on our own, as much as we want to. Praised be God that we can winterize the house on our own and do the remodeling of the summer kitchen.
We also have long-term program, as for the building of the big auditorium, but that is for later.
Now we have need to but the TV for the Sunday school and blinds for the church windows.
Our brothers and sisters are wonderful and giving, so we bought the furniture for the kitchen, we also have enough to pay for the utilities. The next month I will write the report about the church and for 100$.  After we rest a bit we will start doing the tables, pulpit and the table for the Lord's Supper.
So, here are our plans and things that are going on.
Be blessed!My family and I are extremely thankful for you support, this is very important for our ministry.  We keep going to the Uglegorsk every Saturday and I have classes at the college on Monday and Friday. In November Big Dima and I are going to go to Kiev to the seminar devoted to the ministry for the orphan kids.
Love you, pray for you
In Him,Valery

Hello dear brothers and sisters!

May blessings from God be with you all the time! I have a joy to share with you, something about blessings we have in our Christian life. We are fresh spiritually. Brothers and sisters have a joy to be in church and work for the Lord. We have new guests coming. We still have prayer request about Vitaly's baptism, he is really willing to do that. This Sunday the whole congregation will go to Donetsk to worship with the Budenovskaja congregation, they are waiting for us to come.
We keep working on the remodeling.  We prepared everything for the installation of the baptistery. In the "summer kitchen" we got everything done for putting up the wallpaper. 
We are also making juice for the Lord's supper out of grapes that we harvested.  We started winterizing the house.  We finished one wall and covered the roof.  It's warm now in the house and the summer kitchen.  Praised be God for everything.
We keep praying as for repairing of the house.  We really want to see you, so soon we will start getting ready for the VBS in the summer.  I was with the visit at Yasnovataja last Sunday and Dr.Leonia came to visit us.
Tell us about your plans.
Thanks a lot for your financial help.
In Him,Valery

Andrew's Baptism:

  

October 5, 2010

hello dear brothers and sisters!

May be God's peace and grace always be with you.  We can't stop thanking God for your love and generosity.

I really want all of you to rejoice with us. We had such a wonderful worship service today, the whole auditorium was full and we even had to bring some chairs in. There were people who came here for the first time, but they have been searching for God for a long time already. Please be praying about those who are getting closer to the baptism - Vitaly, Andrew, Irina and other guests - Nelia, Lena, Anya, Ira, Ludmila.

I don't understand why, but now less kids are coming to the VBS and that makes me sad.  We hope  when we finish the remodeling the summer kitchen, we'll spread the invitations again, so you pray for wisdom and His guidance.  We haven't installed the baptistery yet since all last week I was going to Donetsk to teach at UBI.  My left arm is still hurting, but I can already see the improvements.  Everything is good with the church.  We canned some grape juice for the Lord's Supper. Tomorrow I'm going to my class at the college.  We will start the new heating system by the end of the week.  I'm so very grateful for your financial support, may God pay you back hundred times more.

Come visit us!

With love and respect!
Valery

P.S. Be praying about Andrew's baptism on Wednesday.  Praised be God!

Hello dear brothers and sisters!

Here are some news from Gorlovka. Praised be our Lord- we finally bought a big bath for the baptistery and the sink, made a new wiring in the "summer" kitchen and now are preparing the walls to put the wallpapers on them. We keep teaching classes in the Uglegorsk orphanage and I'm teaching classes in the college, we have new guests in the church. Next week Joy Don has invited me to teach at the UBI.

Hello dear brothers and sisters!

Praised be God for His church and for the unity of Christians!

We're finally done with the remodeling and everything looks beautiful and clean and cozy. We always keep you in our prayers. The remodeling in the summer kitchen doesn't move as fast as we would like to,but I think it's due to our state of tiredness. Everything is good with the church, it feels like it is a real family. We have new people coming, kids and coming for Bible lessons on Saturdays and Sundays. Last week Jay Don and Mary Lee visited us. God blessed me with the ministry at the College, this year I'm teaching the Lord's Word to two groups of students. One group-both girls ad guys (25 people) and another one is just guys (27 people).  We meet on Monday and Friday. We keep our ministry at the orphanage, so practically we have no time to be bored.

We got foam plastic boards to winterize the house and we also ordered the big bath for the baptistery, they are going to deliver it soon. Thank you a lot for your help, we couldn't do that without your help.may God bless you all.

In Him,Valery
