Almighty God, our Most Holy and Kind Father in Heaven ~ Thank you for this new day that appears with new hopes and possibilities. Encourage us in our task to share the Good News of peace in Christ with all people in the world. Help us to remain joyful even in the presence of so much evil and suffering as we contemplate life under the peaceful King of Kings. In Jesus name, Amen.

Gurganus and Sergey Sergiyenko at Obolon Church of Christ in Kiev. “LT” is presenting lectures on the books of Daniel and Revelation and much necessary background material for a good understanding of these books. Sergey interprets these lessons each night. Sergey and Evgeny Shevchenko share most of the preaching duties at the Obolon church. They both work in the business world and donate much time to the church. This congregation has been self-supporting for several years and uses their resources to spread the Gospel in other parts of Ukraine. This church has suggested for me to consider helping launch a new church in the southern city of Nikolaev on the Black Sea. It is about a 7 or 8 hour drive by car. We plan to leave Kiev at 05.00 Thursday morning with our brother Nikolai. Nikolai is a physician who does some work with prisoners in helping with their rehabilitation. He has met several people in Nikolaev that are waiting to hear me preach the Gospel. Please keep us in prayer about this new work.
