Chaos in Ukraine

page-banner-peace4russiaukraine

Guidelines ministry partners and missionary associates in Ukraine need prayer!  Armed guards entered the church of pastor Alexander Moseychuk in Donetsk, Ukraine and said they will be back to take over the church; half of his congregation has fled the city and the church is besieged by requests for food and assistance. Guidelines recently forwarded funds so that the church could continue its lunch/evangelism ministry four days a week.

Last month the broadcast tower of the Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC) in Slavyansk, Ukraine which broadcasts the Guidelines commentary was destroyed in fighting so at present, FEBC and the Guidelines are off the air.

This week, rebels took over Donetsk Christian University where I have has taught many times. Students and staff were allowed to leave, unharmed. This is a huge blow to evangelicals in the region, as this school has prepared many pastors and missionaries throughout Eastern Europe.   Then too, the downed Malaysian airliner incident may complicate issues on a wider scale.

I am scheduled to be in Kiev this fall, to meet with out Ukranian partners and missionaries.  Please pray for the Ukrainian church and if you’d like to join in feeding those in need in Donetsk or providing temporary support for displaced teachers from Donetsk Christian University, click here.

Then he said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”  Luke 9:23 “When Christ calls a person,” wrote Deitrich Bonhoeffer before his death in a German Concentration Camp in 1945, “he calls him to come and die. Bonhoeffer, implicated in a plot to depose Hitler, was executed.  While God calls few to literally lay down their lives today, as did Bonhoeffer, he still calls us to die to self that Christ may live. Jesus said, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself

October 17 MANTENIENDO UNIDOS  A UN MATRIMONIO KEEPING A MARRIAGE TOGETHER   Por esto dejará el hombre a su padre y a su madre, y se unirá a su mujer, y los dos serán una sola carne.  Efesios 5:31   Los conflictos nunca destruyen un matrimonio; el rehusar resolverlos lo llevan a la ruina.  Cada matrimonio está amenazado por los desacuerdos. Estos son el resultado de nuestra naturaleza humana, de estar completamente vivos, de ver la vida a través de los ojos de otra persona, de unirse con alguien que se desarrolló en un entorno diferente.

She did what she could. She poured perfume on my body beforehand to prepare for my burial.  Mark 14:8 Are we headed for a two-tier society which, by the end of the 21st century, means that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer?  By the end of this century will the rich withdraw behind gated communities where they live in isolation in a kind of high tech castle with infra-red cameras and heat-sensitive alarms with the additional comfort of armed guards at the entrance to keep out the rabble, and outside the moat live the rest of the

October 16 MATRIMONIOS DESAFORTUNADOS TROUBLED MARRIAGES   Le dijeron sus discípulos: Si así es la condición del hombre con su mujer, no conviene  casarse.  Mateo 19:10   Cuando hace poco revisamos  los comentarios más leídos de nuestra página Web, encontramos que el más leído fue el de, “Una receta para el Matrimonio.” Comentario que habla de los ingredientes básicos que hacen funcionar a un matrimonio. En las últimas décadas, el matrimonio ha enfrentado el ataque violento del cambio–mucho de lo cual ha tenido un impacto en extremo negativo tanto en las parejas como en  los hijos.  Si bien es cierto

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent?  Romans 10:14-15 One of the most dynamic, influential missionary statesmen of the twentieth century was a wiry, lean, somewhat sickly man with a temperament akin to that of the Apostle Paul’s. He preached in more than 70 countries of the world and founded the People’s Church in Toronto, a church that has given literally

And now a word to you parents. Don’t keep on scolding and nagging your children, making them angry and resentful. Rather, bring them up with the loving discipline the Lord himself approves, with suggestions and godly advice.  Ephesians 6:4, Living Bible A broadcast magazine printed a cartoon showing a radio station manager in bed with his wife, a microphone in his hand which is held in front of his wife’s face as he says, “So what makes you think I have trouble leaving my work at the station, dear?”  Hey, he isn’t the only one who brings the stress home.

My friend Georgalyn has always been an extremely busy lady. When her husband died at a very young age, she took over the full responsibility of raising two young daughters. But at the same time, all during that time and up until the present, she has headed up one Christian organization or another. At one time it was missionary radio, and now it is missionary printing. With compassion for needy people, she endeavors to make a difference with her life. While I’ve always admired her spunk and dedication, I observed something in Georgalyn that spoke to my own heart in
