Brain Damaged Babies Orphanage in Odessa, Ukraine The great news is that we have been able to supply and install a Portable Respirator to help these disadvantaged little children with malformed lungs breathe normally when their lungs aren’t functioning properly. In addition, we were able to provide the vitally necessary Mucous Suction Machine that these children desperately need when their lungs block up with mucous and they can suffocate. They are noisy machines but do their work thoroughly. We have recently placed the order with the supplier in Poland for the Verticalizer Chair for little children costing $3,500, so [...]

Summer Camps in Latvia and Ukraine

2018-08-01T10:09:05+10:00August 1st, 2018|

The first of the Summer Camps in Latvia began with a wonderful burst of joy and enthusiasm at the campsite near Riga in Latvia. There are 2 camps running back to back that have about 150 young people from the city youth groups coupled young teenage orphans who will strike up wonderful friendships. When the orphans leave their orphanages at 18 they are normally invited by their city friends to stay with them while they search for jobs in the city. This has been most successful in the past, and for some a stepping stone for work somewhere else in [...]

The second summer camp was a huge blessing in that many teenagers made deep commitments to Jesus. They really bonded with others of their age from various youth groups. These camp friendships build wonderful connections for the newcomers to join the city youth groups. This has been most successful in the past. As you know, at these camps, their relationship with Jesus grows and we see many being healed of long-standing hurts caused by harmful and abusive circumstances in their lives. Each of the teenagers received a Bible of their own, many for the first time. They really treasure them. [...]

Latvia ~ Summer Camp No. 1 – July 2017

2017-08-14T16:03:36+10:00August 14th, 2017|

The first of the Summer Camps in Latvia began with a wonderful burst of joy and enthusiasm. A real breakthrough was having 7 young people from Israel come to the camp. They were from a Messianic Synagogue in Tel Aviv, where I have ministered a number of times. These youngsters came to the camp in order to have a deeper relationship with Messiah Yeshua. They loved the fellowship with the gentile teenage believers. There were over 80 youngsters at the camp from 7 to 14 years of age, plus the local team of dedicated and spiritual workers. The meetings were [...]

Orphans Needs in Ukraine & Latvia June 2017

2017-07-12T12:06:12+10:00July 12th, 2017|

As a result of our recent ministry into Ukraine & Latvia we have found human needs beyond our imagination. There is a huge section of society that has been widely neglected by government and local councils. Orphanages and Homeless People’s needs. As you know we are supporting many orphanages in Eastern Europe, that have endured another horrendous winter. As a result, there are needs that still have to be met for the children’s well-being. We have the glaring opportunity to help but lack the funds to meet these needs. Health needs, supplements, vitamins and special needs – like children needing [...]

Ministry in Ukraine in April – May 2017

I would appreciate your prayers very much for my upcoming visit to Latvia and Ukraine, where I will be checking on the orphans to see how well they have coped with the winter, and also conducting outreach seminars for the military, military high schools and basketball teams. In Kiev Ukraine I’ll have the privilege to minister at a Rugby Convention for the Ukrainian Rugby Union where I will have the opportunity to share Jesus with the sportsmen, managers, coaches and officials. This was arranged with the Ukrainian Deputy Minister of Sport on my last visit in October 2016. In Ukraine, [...]

God’s grace to three needy broken little boys – through your kind help

Little 4-year-old boy adopted in Latvia Our local managers and teams in Latvia and Ukraine, who do so much practical work to help the orphans in Eastern Europe, never cease to surprise me with their creativity and compassion. These teams of young people visit the orphanages regularly, providing concerts with spiritual value, and take them  all sorts of goods we’ve been able to provide—bedding, clothes, medicines, vitamins and supplements, dishwashers, washing machines, tumble dryers and educational requisites. They also let me know the needs that the children have. We have one team in Latvia and two in Ukraine that are [...]
