Дорогие друзья,

В этом году Бог дал мне и моим трём друзьям возможность поехать на миссию в приют, поддерживаемый “Doctors for Life (DFL)” /(”Врачи для Жизни”) в Schulzendal, Mpumalanga, в Южную Африку. Эта поездка оказалась огромным благословением как для нас, так и для детей.

До получения помощи от ”Врачи для Жизни”, дети спали на цементном полу, имели минимальное количество одежды, и должны были выпрашивать еду на улице. Сейчас, благодаря таким людям как вы (кто помогает финансировать), эти дети получили посылки с одеждой и игрушками, большинство из них спят на кроватях с матрассами, и имеют пищу. У многих есть различные проблемы со здоровьем, которые должны быть обследованы и пролечены, но на это нет финансов.

Пока мы были там, у нас была возможность играть с детьми в игры, проводить Библейские уроки, разучивать новые песни, делать поделки (мы купили на $400 в Oriental Trading), играть в волейбол (мы купили сетку на Amazon за $100), смотреть “Суперкнигу”, построить 2 качели, построить турник для подтягивания, помочь в огороде и с курятником, и обеспечить необходимой одеждой. Они были очень признательны за мороженое, которое они очень редко едят.

Также, мы смогли поехать в Schulzendal школу, находящуюся при миссии (https://www.facebook.com/smissionschool), где мы один на один помогали академически отстающим ученикам. Там же мы помогали со строительством жилья для текущих и будующих учителей. Сама миссия находится в 30 минутах езды от детского дома.

На территории Schulzendal миссии имеется пекарня, школа, церковь, ферма, водоснабжение и кафетерий. Но там нет здания для размещения детей-сирот. Из-за недавнего экономического спада, ”Врачи для Жизни” едва в состоянии поддерживать их приют, поэтому мы хотим способствовать тому, чтоб дети получали помощь от того, что имеется на миссии.

Африка страдает от СПИДа, и наша цель помочь этим детям вырасти с надеждой изменить эту основную проблему, чтоб они могли прожить достаточно долго, и увидеть как будут расти их дети.
Мы собираем средства на строительство приюта на миссии.

Другие нужды и проекты включают в себя:

  • Жильё для женщин, ставших жертвами изнасилования и жестокого обращения
  • Клиника на территории миссии (строительство и принадлежности)
  • Малый экскаватор (чтобы помочь со строительными проектами)
  • Трактор (для фермы)
  • Автобус (привозить учеников в школу и из школы)
  • Музыкальные инструменты (для школы)
  • Детская площадка

С Божьей помощью и вашим участием, мы сможем воплотить эти мечты в реальность, и изменить жизни этих малюток, несмотря на то, что кажется все надежды потеряны!

Дорогие братья и сёстры, мир Вам!

«Все заботы ваши возложите на Него,
 ибо Он печётся о вас» 1Пет.5,7

В Мажилис Парламента поступил Законопроект «О религиозной деятельности и религиозных объединениях» (в дальнейшем Законопроект).

Нас озадачивают следующие пункты Законопроекта:

     1.  Религиозная деятельность в РК
          Статья 4. Компетенция уполномоченного органа

Деятельность не зарегистрированных в установленном законами порядке религиозных объединений, а равно какое-либо принуждение граждан Республики Казахстан, иностранцев и лиц без гражданства в определении отношения к религии, к участию или неучастию в деятельности религиозных объединений, в религиозных обрядах и (или) в обучении религии, не допускается.

Лагеря в Полтавской области, лето 2007

P1010741Прошедшим летом Бог даровал мне возможность поехать в Украину для проведения детсково, Христианского лагеря. Наша группа состояла с десяти человек. По милости Божьей, мы провели два лагеря; в сёлах Горбы и Жуки, Полтавской Области. Оба лагеря длились 5 дней. Темой лагерей была: жызнь Иисуса. Лагеря прошли очень благословенно, и пришло намного больше детей чем мы и поместная церьковь ожидали.

В обоих сёлах нам розрешили использовать поместную школу для проведения лагеря. Лагеря были дневными: с восьми утра, и до пяти. Но так как мы пообещали “купоны” тем кто прийдёт первыми, дети собирались с семи и раньше. “Купоны” дети получали за присудствие, хорошее поведение, за помощь друзьям, за ответы на вопросы, золотые стихи, и т.п. В конце лагеря был сделан магазин, и дети обменивали свои “купоны” на призы. Детям это очень понравилось.

Mission trip to Irkutsk, Russia

siberia 139People ask me, “Why you go to mission trips”? Only one thing pups up in my mind. Matthew 28:19. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost; Teaching them to observe all things what so ever I have commanded you: and I am with you always, even to the end of the world.”

My first mission trip changed my life. The children in the orphanage had a big impact on me; God had a big impact on me. My views on life, money and time changed. But not even that, I changed. I saw God in a totally new way.

I got to know Him better; I developed a stronger relationship with Him. I saw Him do miracles everyday. My prayers were answered instantly, and God always gave me energy and wisdom. I saw Him changing the kids day by day. I wasn’t doing it, but God was doing his work in these kids through me. I thank the Lord that he was able to use me for his work.

So when another opportunity came up to go to Siberia this summer I said “Lord here I am, send me”. Yeh, there was a lot of obstacles, and the devil obviously didn’t want me to go. But I wanted to go. American way of life wraps you up in so many everyday things, and before you even know it, you are neither hot nor cold, you’re warm. I didn’t want to be warm. I wanted to feel close to God. I wanted to experience His power and miracles. I wanted to have that close relationship with Him again.

The two camps that we organized in Irkutsk weren’t easy. They took a lot of hard work, and prayer. The first camp was blessed in its own way. I had a group of oldest boys ranging in ages from 12-17. The boys were difficult in their own ways. There were days when they listened and days they didn’t, there were days where they behaved, and days they didn’t. But everyday God was doing his work in their hearts. Buy the end of the firs camp 4 boys out of my group repented their sins and gave their hearts to Jesus.

The second camp was even harder than the first. Some kids were orphans and some were from broken families. They were all so different; they all had their different personalities. Their behavior was uncontrollable, and yes, they were boys. I think I spent more time getting them together and looking for them around the camp area than anything else. Three boys in my group smoked, and would disappear constantly (of course to smoke). It was impossible to put them to sleep at night, and it was impossible to make them clean up in the morning. They would constantly fight, tease each other, steal, put things in each others food, etc… I felt all I did was constantly calmed them down. I had to be with these kids 24/7 and it was getting a little hectic.

Around noontime everyday the leaders would get together, discuss any problems, pray, and share their experiences in their groups. I couldn’t believe it. Other kids in other groups were giving their hearts to Jesus and my group was uncontrollable. I would come back to my room and I would cry. I thought this is useless. What is the point? My kids are not changing at all. They listen to Bible lessons, memorize the verses (for candy of course), but I saw no changes at all. I thought they would never change. Everyday it was getting harder and harder. Everyday I had less and less strength. To tell you the truth, I lost hope. I didn’t expect anything good out of my group anymore. Was I wrong! Was God teaching me a lesson!

siberia 158During the Day of “pokayaniya”, everything was centered on Jesus’ death for our sins. The lesson, the games, the plays we showed all reflected Jesus’ gift to us on the cross. After the evening service, the kids were asked to come to their leaders if they wanted to give their hearts to Jesus and ask for forgiveness. Me and my group stepped outside; they were crying, all of them. I said to myself “don’t let the tears fool you”. I wanted them to be sincere and I wanted it to be from their heart. I wanted this moment to mean something to them. And you know what? It was sincere; they meant every word of it. They were asking Lord for forgiveness, they were asking Lord for his mercy to help them leave all their bad habits and start their lives all over. It was an amazing evening, one of the best evenings I ever experienced in my life. When we all went back inside, they were still crying. I couldn’t hug them all, I couldn’t hold them all, there were 12 of them and I only have two hands. We sat down. Two boys were crying on my shoulders each clinging to my hand. The others were by my sides clinging to my knees. They were all around and they were all crying. I felt their tears running down my arms. I saw the tears that ran down their cheeks and dripped from their noses and soaked through the fabric of my jeans. And there I was, surrounded by them, the boys that I thought were lost, hopeless, whose hearts I thought would never melt, because they were solid ice. I was crying with them. The tears were running down my cheeks and I couldn’t stop them either. They were tears of happiness. Tears praising the Lord, that HE is so awesome, that He loves us so much, EVERY ONE OF US. At that time I was asking forgiveness, for loosing hope in these kids, for not believing the Lord completely. Thank God that HE never looses hope in us, that he believes in us and gives us another chance. I thank the Lord that I was able to serve Him this summer and I hope I can continue that in the years to come.

We may be the only Bible

traffic_lightsYou might of heard this somewhere before…
But read it anyway

“We May be the Only Bible”

I was sitting at a stop light this morning. The lady in front of me was going through papers on the seat of her car, and when the light changed to green she did not obey its command – a green light is a commandment – NOT a suggestion.

When the light turned to red, and she had still not moved, I began (with my windows up) screaming epithets and beating on my steering wheel. My expressions of distress were interrupted by a policeman, gun drawn, tapping on my window. Against my protestations of, ‘You can’t arrest me for hollering in my car,’ he ordered me into the back seat of his.

christian car-noAfter about two hours in a holding cell, the arresting officer advised me I was free to go. I said, ‘I knew you couldn’t arrest me for what I was yelling in my own car. You haven’t heard the last of this.’

The officer replied, ‘I didn’t arrest you for shouting in your car. I was directly behind you at the light. I saw you screaming and beating your steering wheel, and I said to myself, ‘What a jerk. But there is nothing I can do to him for throwing a fit in his own car. Then I noticed the ‘Cross’ hanging from your rear view mirror, the bright yellow ‘Choose Life’ license tag, the ‘Jesus is Coming Soon’ bumper sticker, and the Fish symbol, and I thought you must have stolen the car.’
…and we may be the only Bible some people ever read…….

Malawi, Africa 2006

Kid eating and other kids playing around

Kid eating and other kids playing around

I am thankful to God that He gave me an opportunity to go to Malawi Africa this summer and to serve him there. We went through a lot of obstacles before and throughout our trip. But it was God’s will for us to be there and He made everything possible. God taught me a lot throughout this trip. It was the hardest trip I ever been on emotionally and spiritually. I wanted to drop everything and go home. We were treated unfairly and were put down by people around us. But for the sake of this nation, for the sake of Malawians I was ready to put up with anything just to serve God and those people.

I was never a big fan of blacks/African Americans, but God was drawing me to go there for some reason. I never thought I would fall in love with this nation. I never thought I would love these people the way I do now.

Poorest Country

Poorest Country

When we were planning to go to Africa not a lot of people supported us. Some said we were crazy. I was told that normal people my age usually want to go to Paris, Australia, etc… but not to Africa. But you know I am happy that I don’t want to go to those places, I am happy that God drew me to go to Africa. Others were saying that we are just a drop of water in the ocean, meaning that we can’t help everybody. I know that, but I also know that God gave us those children and adults in Malawi for that specific time, and for them it meant something, it meant a lot. We can’t feed, clothes and provide necessities for everyone. We can’t guarantee that they will not die tomorrow of hunger, but we can do so much more. We can give them hope, eternal hope. We can tell them about God, about Jesus Christ. We can tell them about the biggest gift that was given to a human- forgiveness of sins and a promise for eternal life.

Malawi is the 4th poorest country in the World. And that didn’t mean anything until I went there and saw it with my own 2 eyes. I thought Russia was poor, I thought Siberia was poor; trust me we don’t know what poor is. I never thought people can live so badly in this day and age. We are so blessed; we have so much and much more. We don’t know what hunger is and that is a blessing. But we still find what to complain about. But what amazed me the most is how happy these people are. They don’t have anything, but yet they are so happy and they thank God for everything.

Food is in great need

Food is in great need

Most Malawians never tried bread in their life. They eat this kasha called “Zima”- it is made of white corn, it is the most disquisting food I ate in my life, but to them it’s life. Little kids catch rats in the field and sell them on the side of the road to make some money. People eat rats–for them it’s MEAT. A lot of kids have bloated stomachs, suffering from malnutrition. This means they are dying, and we probably won’t see them next year. I am done crying, I left all my tears in Africa. It was amazing to see how hungrily they ate when we fed them. The plates were loaded with food; they were grabbing the food with their hands and stuffing their little mouths. They don’t know the limit, and they will eat anything that they get their hands on even though their stomachs will hurt after. They do that because they don’t know if they will eat tomorrow. It only costs about $10 to feed a family for a whole month. And what is $10 for us? They don’t have toys, descent clothes, or even shoes. A lot walked barefoot anywhere from 7-8 km to be in our camp, and some walked up to 25km. They live in mud huts the size of our bathrooms with straw roofs and no windows. They don’t have lights or even candles, and sleep on a cement floor.

But these are all physical needs. The biggest need in Africa is that they live in sin and they like it and don’t want to leave it behind. They are dying from it, but they still don’t want to turn away from it. These people need God in their lives. Malawians sleep around a lot, they don’t have marriages and a lot die from AIDS. According to my interpreter, January, approximately 30% of the 350+ children that we had in our camp are infected with AIDS. Also she said that she would give 99% that all the girls in our camps were already raped at least once. January herself is dying of AIDS. She is only 27 and she has a 7 year old son Austin. She is a good Christian and she contracted AIDS from her husband who already is dead due to that. But I never saw anyone so happy, so jolly, and so thankful as her. She knows she is dying but that doesn’t stop her from loving and serving God. I have personally learned so much from her.

Children's camp

Children's camp

We were able to make a children’s camp for approximately 350+ children, and also a youth camp for 270 youth. Our camps were titled “Mulungu Whanu Ndani” in Chichewa–which means WHO IS YOUR GOD? We had Bible lessons, crafts, different games, and of course food for the children in our camps. God worked in their hearts and a lot repented. But they are in need of our prayer. They need to stay on this road with Jesus and not to go back to their sin. They need our support of prayer. We were also able to visit local villages and do one day camps. We were able to go to a hospital visit the sick and pray with them, we also went to a prison and had an opportunity to tell them about Christ. We visited widows, orphans and helped them with some basic things.

There is so much work in Malawi; these people need God so desperately in their lives. I ask you to pray for Malawi, for Africa, for their people. You can also support them financially. And if the Lord is asking you to go, don’t put it off. There is an opportunity to serve Him. Pray about it and you can be an instrument of God. What can be better than that? If you are still reading this, I want you to ask yourself one question, “Who is your God”? and what are you doing for Him today?

Much work

Much work

P.S. When I was leaving Malawi, my interpreter January came up to me gave me a hug and said, “maybe I will see you next year, and If I won’t I will defiantly see you in heaven”. I never got to see her again. She died in February 2007 of AIDS. The news was devastating for me, but I do know that one day I will see her in heaven. I am thankful that God gave me an opportunity to meet and work with such a great person on this earth.
