"The Sasha Project" - October Visits...

Today, Jenny and Sergei were able to visit 5 families in the villages of Obukhoviche and Musiyki. As they traveled from home to home they were encouraged to find that each parent was sober and that none of them were intoxicated at this time. The children all seemed to be healthy and doing well. This visit, we were able to purchase and deliver food parcels for each child that included rice, cream of wheat, sugar, macaroni, eggs, cheese, juice and fruit.

"The Sasha Project" - Update on Oxhrimchuk Family...

"A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows,
is God in His holy habitation;
God sets the solitary in families;
He brings out those who are bound into prosperity."
Psalm 68:5-6

The Oxhrimchuk family lives a very hard life. There are 5 children and Sasha (the namesake of this ministry) is the oldest boy. A few months ago, we wrote in a newsletter about how Sasha had been disciplined by his father by being placed on a hot stove. The stove burned his bottom and his hands (when he went to push himself up and off of the stove). Sashar was hospitalized and his father was arrested and in jail for 2 days.

While Sasha was hospitalized, Jenny and Sergei, along with a representative from Social Services visited the family. While Sergei and Lyudmila (Social Services) spoke with the father about his actions, Jenny was able to minister briefly to the mom. The family was invited to attend worship in Ivankiv and told that we wanted to try to help them rebuild their family.

For the past three weeks, Sasha's mother and a couple of his siblings have attended Bible class and worship on Sunday morning. We are praying that they will continue to attend and that one day, maybe even Sasha's father will come to church.

"THE SASHA PROJECT" - ministering to social services children...

In September, Jeremiah's Hope began a new initiative to help meet some of the basic needs of children in the Ivankiv region. Over 30 children were registered with our ministry and each of them are under the observation of the local Department of Social Services. Their homes lives are riddled with alcoholism, neglect, abuse, abandonment and poverty.

Each month, Jeremiah's Hope staff will be visiting these children and making reports to Social Services. Additionally, we will be providing families with simple food packages to help meet the need of providing for their children. We will also provide school supplies and other material needs like blankets and warm clothing for winter.
