Hello from Kiev.
We arrived Wednesday mid afternoon. Another hour drive to Paul and Christine Pierquet’s (pastors of International Christian Assembly) brought us to their home, where we will live for the next ten days.
Thursday morning we started speaking at Kiev Bible Institute.
Here we are with some of the female students. Marg challenged them to rise to their godly potential, utilizing Biblical women as role models.
Friday afternoon we started a two day conference with Christian Hope Churches. Some women came on an eight-hour train ride, then another hour drive to be with us. We were able to communicate with these fantastic translators.
Sunday morning we had the opportunity to participate in Pastor Sophia’s church, a dynamic woman who is known throughout Ukraine for her positive influence in drawing all together in unity. Here we are in the choir room working with Julia, our translator, making last minute preparation for Marg’s message and Ruth’s recitation of Psalm 8.
The three hours of singing, dancing, words of encouragement, blessing for the children, soloists, saxaphonist, string quartet, children’s worship team was topped off with a timely message from Margaret. She shared stories on her spiritual heritage from the Ukraine.
Tim Gibb flies in tomorrow and we will be join up with Bob who is already many miles east of here speaking at a Bible school.
We are so blessed to be in this environment to see God at work with His people.
Will have tons more to share. Come back often.
Please remember to keep praying for us. We can’t do this without you!
Marg, Alma and Ruth
