This summer, our staff members visited eight cities in Ukraine and twelve Messianic congregations and churches, as well as organized and taught at two conferences: one for Messianic leaders and another for church leaders from the western part of Ukraine. The staff couple were the main speakers at a five-day retreat, with almost 150 participants from Messianic congregations all over the country. They taught twelve different seminars and more than thirty Bible studies. They also visited more than fifty Jewish people in their homes and prayed for their salvation and healing from different physical and spiritual problems. There were countless personal consultations and counseling, prayers, and deliverances.
Messianic believers in Germany collected $2,000 for humanitarian aid for disabled, sick, and elderly Jewish people and orphaned children as well, and our staff members distributed this help through six Messianic congregations. There were many thankful tears and words from the recipients. As one elderly Jewish man said, “I don’t know that Yeshua is the Messiah yet, but I see and feel His love through you.” Those words are invaluable. Our staff member writes, “Honestly, some moments were overwhelming, but praise the Lord everything went very well and so many people were thankful for this help and what they have received through our ministry to them.”
