Overview report on the work in Odessa Oblast

2020-07-14T15:30:48+10:00July 11th, 2020|

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 [...]

Odessa Homeless Kids Soccer Club In April 2017, Sasha, my Russian manager, and I were in Kiev doing outreach seminars to the Rugby Chaplains and the Ivan Bogun Military Academy for teenage orphans of fallen Ukrainian soldiers. Then we went to Odessa to do some Evangelism Equipping seminars in a small local church. At that time Peter E....., our Ukrainian manager, took me to meet the Homeless Kids Soccer Team who were working out at the Odessa Soccer Academy. I kicked a ball around with them for a while, gave them some some “ancient” soccer tips from my youth, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Early in the morning at the House of Hope

2018-11-29T16:51:58+11:00November 29th, 2018|

Every morning kids in The House of Hope begin their day with prayers and studying Bible. For each of them, that is an opportunity to start your day in a right way dedicating it to the Lord. It’s so good to see the open hearts of boys and girls! All kids aim to study Bible and assimilate the values that leaders invest in them. Previously, they spent the morning in a completely different way, but here, in the House of Hope, their morning begins not only with physical, but also with spiritual food. The lives of many biblical heroes demonstrate [...]
