Dear Pastors and Friends,
Hello from the Slobodians! Thank you for taking the time to view our monthly video update. We thank God for all those who are interested in and pray for our ministry.
This month's video comes from Fastiv, Ukraine and features the Philadelphia Baptist Church and Rehabilitation Center. Vadim who started this ministry was one of the first converts of the church BIEM planted years ago in this city. His conversion from a life of crime and addiction was so dramatic that it made a huge impact in the community, and many others were saved as a result.
Eventually Vadim married Luba, the pastor's daughter and sister of Eugene, our Ukrainian director that many of you may be acquainted with. Therefore this church is a 2nd generation church plant which operates a very successful drug and alcohol rehabilitation ministry. They need to replace their roof which is constantly leaking. Please pray about this need which will cost $5,000.
Sam & Amy Slobodian
