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.

God’s Purpose And Suffering

October 21, 2014

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:5-6 Does God allow everything that happens in your life? And, if so, does He really have a purpose behind each event, something unique which, perhaps, you cannot see, yet conforms to His plan? Long ago, Jeremiah wrote those words which declare God’s game plan for our lives. He recorded the message from the Almighty, saying, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper

I’ll give you a verse in the Bible covers anything and everything that will happen to you today. You find it in the little book of Philippians, chapter 4, verse 6 in the Living Bible version. The first part of the verse says, “Don’t worry about anything.” Now, that sounds simple to do—but only until something major strikes today at the very center of what you care most about—perhaps the business you just started, or much more serious, your mate or one of your children. Then you find yourself thinking about the problem non-stop. You may go through the motions

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.  James 1:5 Never before has a generation been confronted with so many choices, and when you go with one, like it or not, you establish priorities. You have to decide which comes first.  Establishing priorities and sticking to them is growing more difficult all the time. How do you decide what comes first? You have been asked to attend a conference the same weekend you have a chance to get away with your family for

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

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
