Dear Loving Brothers and Sister in Christ
Remembering spring and summer 2012, I tank the Lord again for His blessings.
In February we had had the training seminar for the Christian businessmen from
In April and May we got ready the camp for summer season. The Lord blessed us with providing finances to install water supply to the reconstructed three stored cottage.

In July we had two camps for the military people and their families where they studied English. We were eye witnesses how God uses the camps to find lost people. There were 70 pupils in each camp and 65 people open their hearts for the Lord.
In the end of July we had eight days camp for the disabled wheelchair children. The report about it was shown on TV.
In August the city administration asked us to rent another camp and have there one camp session (14 days) for 67 children. The camp did not operate because of lack of finances that is why they asked us to have one session in order it was not terminated. The main sense of it is to have proper image for the city administration. We agreed to handle the camp if they allow us to have there Christian ethics lessons. We felt cautious attitude toward our team in the beginning of the camp session. During the firs meeting we have declared that what we were going to speak to the children about and asked them to examine what kind of music they have during disco.

In August, I was invited to celebrate 120th anniversary of a church in Mariupol city where I have had ministry as a pastor for ten years. It was great time for memories and giving thanks to God for serving in that church.
The heads from Education office came to us with the request to organize Christmas camp for the orphans who studied in the professional schools after finishing education. They are teenagers of fifteen years old. We have started getting ready for the camp and we shall have it in December 30, 2012 until January 12, 2013. We have to gather a team of people who will work with the children, prepare proper program and raise funds to handle the camp. One teenager costs 140 UAH. or US$17.5 in day. We need 196000 UAH or US$24500.
Please, pray for this camp.
With love and a prayer
Christmas Camp 2012
I Send you my greetings, my dear friends,
I thank all of you for taking part in the Christmas camp organization for orphans.
In January, 12, on Saturday, the Christmas camp came to an end. There were 55 people. The situation has changed a little bit. Teenagers from the colleges did not come but another orphans from boarding school arrived. Children age is 7-18 years old. They had fun in the camp. Children sing songs, they like Christian songs; they have Bible classes and involved in different kinds of sections. They also sledge form the hill. There is a lot of snow this year. Children learned how to pray and did it with desire in the dining room, in the rooms for Bible classes and before going to bed. The sermons where children took part were very interesting. We went for excursion to Chernigov where we attended Antony caves, had a walk around the town, visited city New Year tree and cafeteria “Zoloty kluchik” where we ate cakes. We also visited Christmas concert in the city philharmonic organized by the Baptist churches of
The guests visited us and brought presents for the children. The guests and children were very happy.
