On December 20, we continued our journey to the towns of Gubinikha and Rozdory, where we were received with the same joy and anticipation by more than 60 children. Also, we visited a large family to share the good news of our Savior's birth.
December 25 - the birthday of Jesus Christ. Oh, how wonderful it would be to greet Jesus on that day! And that we did in the "Church for All Nations” Dnipro, with pastor Konstantin Maksimov. Children filled the hall, waiting for a costume performance, games, celebration, gifts, and most importantly, prayer. Seeing how many children came to congratulate Jesus on His birthday, we believe that heaven rejoiced!
On December 26, our small team visited a small community in the village of Maryanka to greet the children, encourage the elders, and pray for the missionaries Slavik and Karina Vynokurov.
On December 30, a packed hall of young football players was waiting for us in Dnipro. These guys have never heard of Christ. We are grateful to God for the opportunity to serve them and to bring the news of the birth of Jesus, and to bear witness to the Lord's incredible love for everyone.
