Dear Pastors and Friends,
Happy Thanksgiving from the Slobodians!
This month's video comes from Ternopil, Ukraine and features church planter Vitaly Bilyak. We were there recently with a group from our home church along with a couple from Canada. We were able to celebrate Thanksgiving with the church established there. For such festive occasions Ukrainians often wear their embroidered shirts called "Vyshyvankas." Our whole group joined in this tradition.
Believers in Ukraine do not all celebrate Thanksgiving on the same day. Rather each church picks a Sunday in the Fall to have their special Thanksgiving service. It was a great blessing for us to be able to thank the Lord together with these dear saints.
May God bless you with a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Sam & Amy Slobodian
