How we went to friends for the New Year…

It is a wonderful Christmas and New Year tradition to give presents to each other. When you were little, you used to wait for this holidays to get something.

Over time, growing up, you realize that it is more interesting and more pleasant to give gifts. Nevertheless, something remains unchanged - this is the atmosphere of the winter holidays. It seems to me that the best way to spend this time is to be in a circle of close and dear people.

On these New Year days, we were able to come to the Peninsula and see our dear friends once again. Thanks to you, we were able to bring gifts with us. This year the Lord gathered a special team of 7 people (Ivano-Frankivsk, Zdolbunov, Sarny and Kiev). He prepared His role for each of us. Praise Him for this.

Here are the thoughts and impressions of the team members:

«God is beautiful! This trip was a great blessing and inspiration to me. Finally, God allows us to see the fruits and hear about His deeds from the representatives of this unreached people.

We heard that after the camp one of our teenagers came to the Christian and asked how to repent. We heard one girl saying that she had read the Scriptures several times. We heard one woman, our friend, speaking fearlessly and directly about the work and miracles of God in her life. But we also heard how much pain and misunderstanding these people have and how they seek for the answer and do not find it.

Please pray for this people, for families that raise children with disabilities and for young people. The world is swiftly trying to drag them away, but they are pushing against and seeking God. Pray for the servants who, despite all their personal difficulties, continue to invest in these people and love them».

«At first I thought that it would be a trip to celebrate the New Year. It didn’t work out as I thought. As soon as we arrived at the place, I started feeling nostalgia, if I may call it that, because I had already been there about 9 years ago. I recalled about good time that we had while we were building, resting and communicating with each other and with God. My expectations from the trip were to see how everything happens and, if possible, to tell the Gospel one-on-one to the unreached people who live there. I prayed for this, but as it turned out, the soil was already well prepared and it was possible to speak easily about God.

Throughout the trip, I met new friends, brothers and sisters in Christ, met old friends, learned more about those with whom I had been familiar for a long time, and even managed to get on someone’s nerves. But the most import thing is that I felt the pleasure of serving Christ. God showed me how to put emphasis in life and what needs to be fully entrusted to Him. The only thing that upsets is that everything has its end. Our trip is over. I pray to God that this ministry will bear fruit. As for me, I hope that He would give me a possibility to serve Him there again!»

«A trip to the peninsula was valuable to me because I could serve people and preach the Gospel to them. I saw the work of God in the hearts and how God uses people for His glory. I saw how much they need God. Despite the difficult life circumstances and changes in the country, they continue to follow Him. Our trip was short and we did not have enough time to communicate with everyone, but the seed was sown and in due time it will produce fruit. I am grateful to God that there are people who continue to serve this nation».

Vladimir R.

During the trip, we visited 8 families, met with our dear teenagers and attended a church meeting. We are grateful to God that we can do all this for His glory!
