Odessa Rescue Mission #3 – October & November 2020

We want to thank you so much for your kindness and generosity to the Orphans we support in Ukraine. Over the last nine months we have been able to help so many orphans in Odessa survive a horrendous ordeal – being displaced from their Orphanage Boarding Schools with nowhere to live. It’s so precious to see these children full of joy at the thought that someone is looking out for them and their needs are being met in spite of impossible circumstances. We know that their own faith is growing when they hear that people from afar, whom they [...]

Odessa Orphans Rescue – Back to School

2020-10-29T11:04:18+11:00October 1st, 2020|

Our Motivation ~ Deuteronomy 24:19 “When you are harvesting in your field and you overlook a sheaf, do not go back to get it. Leave it for the poor, the orphan, and the widow, so that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.” Deuteronomy 24:19 has an instruction from God that is followed by a blessing. You have been such a blessing to many hundreds of needy orphans, homeless children and destitute people in the Odessa province over the past 6 months. During this time of worldwide crisis, the temptation is to [...]

Overview report on the work in Odessa Oblast

Report from Sasha Kohen our manager in Europe: For many long months the attention of the world was focused on the plague named COVID-19. Country by country, like a falling domino house, went into the lockdown, sealing the borders, cancelling travel, closing schools and dramatically slowing down economies. No one could have imagined such drastic and sudden changes. As of today, almost 5 months into the “New World” over 525,000 people have died because of this unknown virus, leaving a bleeding wound that will take long time to heal. Probably the world we knew [...]

Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity over the last three months our local Rescue Teams in Odessa have visited 108 country villages, reached over 4,100 needy Orphans who were evicted from their Orphanage Boarding Schools (3,500 orphans more than we started searching for) and given out 1,400 picture Bibles and 1,500 Survival Packs of food, basic medicines and hygiene products to hundreds of needy families. I was stunned that they covered so much ground on horrendous roads in the present lockdown situation. The old vans have battled on horrendous roads with [...]

Ministry in England & Orphans in Ukraine November 2019

2019-11-23T16:45:43+11:00November 23rd, 2019|

Here is an update of my recent ministry overseas, especially with ministry to the orphans and homeless children’s in Odessa, Ukraine. On Sunday November 3rd I was in Central London ministering to the Salvation Chinese Church in a combined service for Mandarin & Cantonese speaking believers at St Margaret Patten Anglican Church, near Tower Bridge, London. I’ve known many of these Chinese believers for two decades and have found them so diligent in their witness for Christ to the extent that they have planted a number of daughter churches in different areas of London. It’s been marvelous seeing them reach [...]

In early October, the Friday night Fellowship Meeting at John & Linda Andrewski’s home in Mashpee, Cape Cod, was joined by the Yarmouth Ladies Bible Study Group, led by Pat Greene. Linda, Pat and these precious ladies had knitted many little baby blankets, scarves, beanies and little jackets for the orphans and brain-damaged babies of Odessa, Ukraine. They had brought these articles to the Home Meeting to be packed in a huge suitcase for me to take to Odessa in early November. The fellowship was very precious and the message on leaving a legacy for generations after ours was [...]
