Two more souls

A week ago we had a great event in our Church, this is Water Baptism! Yay! Two more precious souls expressed the desire to follow the Lord Jesus and declared this to the whole church, friends, the Heaven and God! So very excited!!! Praise God!!!

 Alyona and Sasha(on the right on the picture) accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior some time ago. They both are orphans. For us this is a doubly special event. Sasha is the first deaf person in our Church and very much hope that not the last one. ;) Pastor Misha began to study the deaf signs. Interestingly, he never knew the language of the deaf. It was difficult for Sasha to understand certain moments from the Gospel. God is so good! Brother Misha began to learn the signs and taught Sasha the Christian signs to deeper explain the Word of God, not only to the young guy, but to many deaf people in the future. Sasha was amazed! :)

 Please, pray God bless in this matter and send all that is necessary. And also for our sweet Yana, who works hard to witness the deaf. That God would apply the saved souls to the Church, not only among the hearers, but also among the deaf.  :)

Please, watch this short video. Sorry for the technical errors. We have a problem with the computer.

We had such a wonderful and beautiful day!

Please, meet little Karina!

Zhena's family has a beautiful addition!It`s a girl!!! Finally in our small church family we have a girl! Yay! Please, meet a little Karina! ♥♥♥ She was born few weeks ago. A while ago we shared that Zhenya had some health problems. Therefore the baby could be born earlier or young mother could lose her beautiful precious God`s gift any day. Mommy and her precious daughter both are doing well and healthy! Praise God for His mercy and goodness!!!Thank you very much for prayers!!! God is so good!!!


Congratulations to Kolya and his wife Zhenya with their third baby! God has created little Karina such a beautiful baby!
For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
(Psalm 139:13-16)KJV

This young family has a lot of physical, spiritual and emotional difficulties. Please, remember them in your daily prayers!Thank you! May God bless you!

Journey and impressions about US(3)

Interestingly enough, I learned about the fact that I'm flying to Pennsylvania at the last minute! In a few hours when tickets had to be booked! Wow! And undoubtedly it was God's plan and God's providence!!! And about this little later... ;)

To read about my trip to U.S. part one Here. Part two is Here. And this is the third and last one. :)

God made the mountains amazingly beautiful. I just couldn`t not share this beauty with you!

 I was delighted enjoying the mountains when flying over the state of Utah, Salt Lake City!

Longwood Gardens is a botanical garden in Pennsylvania. Breathtaking and amazing place!

20 indoor gardens within a 4.5 acre (1.8 hectares) group of heated greenhouses. Garden has 4,600 different types of plants and trees, as well as fountains! Wow!

It is the most beautiful garden I ever seen!

I made so many photos that I thought that my camera would break! Ha ha!It is gorgeous!!!

Oh, I have been in Chick-Fil-A! Yay! I loved it! I`m not sure what I ate... I remember that it was chicken and I liked it very much. ;) It was yummy!

Wonderland with millions of Christmas lights...

We don't have much lights in Ukraine for holidays. I was anxious to see!

Beautiful place!

Christian Theatre "Sight&Sound" is stunning and inspirational!!! This is one of the remarkable place on the earth!



I was very impressed to see the show Samson! A wonderful play of actors, costumes, music, and even alive animals took part! It was awesome! Jesus says that we preach the God`s Word to unsaved souls. It is His commandment. What I really liked they presented the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the end of the show. So wonderful!

An Amish buggy
   Lancaster County had been on my list of places what I really wanted to see. It was really interesting to see the countryside as well as I traveled through. 
When I think of the Amish lifestyle I’m reminded my homeland country, Ukraine :)  
These days I already began to miss my home... Everything was absolutely beautiful and perfect!!! My sweet friends treated me like a princess in every state. ♥ I felt like in the earthly Heavens. :) But I missed my little family, my dear friends and my beloved church in Ukraine. I felt a little tired...

Interestingly, to see Amish countryside… plain clothed people riding horse and buggy, farmers toiling on the land, children in home stitched clothing playing simple front yard games. 
  People live very simply in Ukrainian countryside as well. Women wash clothes with their hands and hang it on a rope, children play in simple games in the street, men and women work very hard on the ground with their hands. Some still use bogie and ride horses.

If you are interested in knowing more about life in Ukraine and the culture of people. Here you can watch the life of an American guy, who lived 6 weeks in a Ukrainian village. :)

And finally I came to the most interesting part.
Some people play a huge role in our lives and are heroes and a great example. Right? I believe that there are people in your life who inspire you, light you up for something new and beautiful. 
Susanna is an wonderful example for me personally... By her openness, immense love for Christ and with a great and dedicated heart to children with special needs, she is a modern hero for me. I was inspired by her blog posts, humbled the heart and drawn ever closer to Jesus Christ. I saw how God lives in her house, in her actions, in her words, in her family through blog posts. God's people draw you closer to Jesus Christ and do not push away from Him. Isn't it? I started dreaming to meet her... It seemed like an impossible dream. How it can be? She lives far far way in another country... But very deep in my heart, I cherished this dream, hoping that someday sometime in the future, God will make it possible. Who knows? You never know what God has in store for you :)

As I said above, at the last minute, few hours before the tickets were booked, I was invited by another wonderful family and our dear friends in Pennsylvania! My heart was so excited and thrilled with joy! It seemed to me that it would jump out of happiness! I was so excited to see our old precious friends and meet new once! At that moment God began to do something more and great for BOM than I could have thought...

The Lord has repeatedly used this wonderful woman for the BOM. In the correspondence we "knew" each other. When I wrote Susanna that I was going to be in America soon, in what dates and where. It turned out that she lives in Pennsylvania very close to the city where I was going to spend time with a beautiful family! That becomes very interesting... But that's not all! This woman of faith and the family where I was going to be, they know each other! How amazing! Wow! Incredible blessing! 

  My desire and dream became a real! I lived so close to this beautiful woman and her lovely family! We had a wonderful time together. At the beginning of this year, we lost the way where sponsors could send funds to the ministry. It was God's plan because He was preparing something better and more special. Thanks to this meeting very soon we began to work together with the amazing organization Ting Ministries. We feel very blessed to partnering with them! ♥

  My trip was surprisingly successful in many aspects and ways, because in everything was God and it was His will. :) My gratitude will not end to everyone, everyone who took part and blessed in every moment!!! ♥ God's actions in life helps to grow into a deeper relationship with Him, seeing many beauties, seeing His almighty hand, His guidance and His miracles which are so numerous.

  Thank you so much for your spent time to read and reflect. His overflowing love blessed my heart and drew closer to Him. I very hope it brought you joy, positive thoughts and blessed your heart! I hope it also encouraged you and helped you to see the beauty of God in His acts and nature to know His deeper and praise Him. My love to you! ♥
