Earlier this year, the 23rd missionary conference of Hope to People was held in Rivne, Ukraine. The topic was the words of Paul, ‘So that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it’ (2 Timothy 4:17).
Every day from 21-28 January, Christians who care about fulfilment of the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ, gathered at the Good Shepherd Community Biblical Missionary Church.
At Sunday’s service, the ministers of both Good Shepherd Community (Rivne) and Source of Life (Zdolbuniv) churches preached on God’s view on mission. Conference delegates also listened to the testimonies of missionaries from Ukraine, Armenia, Russia, and Central Asia about the wonderful acts of God around the globe, and prayed a lot.
Church members had a great chance to get to know missionaries better during the lunch at their homes. Then Sunday’s evening service was dedicated to the outreach to Kurds, who live in the hard-to-reach mountain villages of Armenia and practice Yazidism. It is the immense mercy of God that he saves these people from among those who worship the stone idol of Melek Taus (the mythological peacock angel, seen by Muslims to be a demon).
Praise God for the opportunity to spread his kingdom in Ukraine and around the globe. Please pray he sends more workers to the nations that have never heard about Christ.
