With temperatures hovering around 3 degrees Fahrenheit and over 30 inches of snow, they come walking in the dark each Sunday evening for worship and a lesson from His Word. None of them Christian, but all are desperately seeking meaning and purpose to their lives here in our village, in this world and in this life. Each week, they come with questions, hoping to get answers.
For the past 6 months, the church plant in Kolentsi has gathered together weekly to worship and study. The evangelists from Obolon Church of Christ (Kiev, Ukraine) make the hour trek each week and our neighbors continue to come with a desire to learn more.
Tonight, twelve gathered in our lodge for worship. The weather is harsh and extreme, yet they come. A testimony to their dedication to learning more of God's amazing love for them. How many of you are dedicated enough to have trudged through 30 inches of snow and single digit temperatures to get to church? By foot, not by car. If those were our option, probably most of us would have stayed at home with a cup of coffee.
Please continue to keep this small group in your prayers!
