Update from Island Christian Church, Ukraine
On Sunday, May 27th, we celebrated the Trinity day. It is a big celebration in our country. It is a big joy especially for us, because we see God's work in the hearts of people. We had a baptism at the river and 6 young people joined our church. Four of them are 13 years old, one is 17 and one lady is 32. It was so nice to see young people coming to Christ. Three of the girls came to our church through the camp we had two years ago and stayed, helped with the camp last year and now decided to give their lives to the Lord. All six are waiting for the camp and ready to serve there. We have already started planning and praying for it. So, pray for the kid's camp too. We want to influence as many young hearts as possible in our area. God is GOOD!
Nigeria Mission Trip
Next month, there will be a few moms and sons from Live Oak going to Jos, Nigeria, to help the Miles Family conduct a Vacation Bible School and also help Care Africa prepare the new school, opening this Fall. This team needs our help! Sunday, July 1st, there will be a table set up in the Connections Cafe to collect the following items: White over the ankle socks for both boys and girls in all sizes, Boys boxer briefs all sizes, Girls underwear all sizes, bath soap, and flip flops (kid's sizes). In addition, if you would like to make a monetary donation to help the team, you can do so that morning as well.
Our 2 weeks at Family Promise start on Sunday, June 24th. You can help by preparing and serving dinner one night during the 2 weeks. Or maybe you can spend the night at Low Country Presbyterian Church one night. You will have a real bed, your own space, and internet access! If you can help, contact Judy Frost at email@example.com. This is a great opportunity for house churches to get a community service project done over the summer.
Ladies, mark your calendars for June 26th at 6:30pm at the Ministry Center. We will have potluck. Just an evening of food, fellowship, and fun! Let Jamie know if you plan to attend at firstname.lastname@example.org.
