CARPATHIAN MOUNTAINS OF UKRAINE
Greetings in our Lord's strong and worthy Name. Our purpose is to join efforts and resources with like-minded Christians. Together we can accomplish more for Christ than we can separately. Together we can stand triumphant in the face of adversity from the kingdom of darkness. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)
In April/May 1994, I had the opportunity of visiting Ukraine for the first time with the International School Project. It was life changing. Once again in November of that same year I returned to this former part of the Soviet Union and revisited the cities of Vinnitsa and Zhitomir. While in Zhitomir I met with the director of the "Disabled Children's Society." In our meeting I learned that there were 300 families in this particular society with children experiencing various kinds of disabilities, and that they were not receiving assistance from the Ukrainian government or from anyone else. It was pitiful. The situation in Central Europe has not changed much in this regard, except for areas that at are suffering from Russian aggression, which are even worse. The Jewish director appealed to me for medicines and mobility helps for these families. The only thing I could offer was my sympathy and prayers and a promise to do what I could. The Lord answered this prayer in the most amazing way!
Once I understood the Lord's heart and mandate in Luke 14 and many other Scriptures, I watched how God began to raise up nationals and those here in the US to serve the forgotten and wounded in answer to prayer. This, of course, is the way it should be! The nationals that I speak of are extremely gifted and dedicated. They have a deep desire to be better trained and equipped and to see this work in Ukraine expand to other regions of their country. The population in this part of the world is 2.9 billion souls with only minimal access to the Gospel.
Success means for us to live up to the vision and calling that our Lord has given to minister to those with disabilities, to save the unborn, to see God raise up godly men and women as leaders, and to challenge youth with the claims of Jesus Christ. Will you consider joining us with your prayer and support in reaching these precious people for Jesus?
It would be an incredible honor and privilege to partner with you in ministry! If you have a yearning to be part of something much bigger than yourself, something that will make a difference for eternity, please give prayerful consideration to serving with Gateway to Life International.
Again, thank you for your interest. May God richly bless you in your call to the Great Commission - “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” Matthew 28:19
Yours for the dignity of every human life,
Founder and President
