Working on the road

By Dr. Alexander Schevchenko

Praise the Lord, we are safe and continue our important mission in difficult region of our country and beyond.

In March we visited our old friends in Novoshakhtinsk of Rostov region. This city is located 10 kilometers from the border of Russia. It was a three-day trip and very saturated with activities.

We had the opportunity to consult with sick people and share with them the Good News. Also we were able to visit a rehabilitation center near Novoshakhtinsk, which is supervised by the Church of Novoshakhtinsk. On Sunday we took part in worship.

God blessed all our ministry, and we are happy for His provision and guidance during all of the trip.

The doctors of our ministry took part in the travel along with our three volunteers who helped us.  

Our second ministry we implemented service to was Yurievka, near Lugansk. We have been there many times there and have good relationships with church there.

There were many people on the ministry and we praise the Lord for some people who were located to hear the Good News.

We continue pray for development of the ministry in Lugansk region and for God`s peace here.
